At least, the Prestige Edition of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is available for pre-order at Amazon. Unfortunately for PC gamers, the online retailer is not allowing pre-orders of the PC version of the game in the Prestige Edition. It is not known whether this is because Amazon is not sure if they will make one or if Infinity Ward is definitely not making one.
We have sent an official request for comment to Infinity Ward and will update this article when we learn more. In the meantime, get to pre-ordering, console gamers! The game’s release of November 10th will get here before you know it.
You probably recall yesterday’s story where UFC President Dana White practically called for a cage match between himself and EA Sports President Peter Moore over licensing the UFC brand into a game series. He claims EA Sports wanted nothing to do with them and even went so far as to say fighters in the UFC who provide their likeness to an EA Sports game will not be in the UFC anymore. Harsh words!
Well today, Peter Moore has indirectly-responded to the rant in his latest blog post.
From the Blog:
‘…I love mixed martial arts, and we’ve been working on a game concept since I came to EA two years ago. I have great respect for the organizations and individuals that have invested in the sport’s growth over the past decade…’
This seems in direct contradiction to White’s saying that EA Sports turned him down and bad-mouthed the entire sport a year and a half ago.
Stay-tuned for more as it happens…
