    This:

    Link.

    I just got an e-mail for a survey, and look at this picture.

    Modern Warfare 2 for Wii?

    Personally, I could careless for the game IF it was real, but I think they just put this in for fun. I don't think they could accidentally put the wrong picture in.

    Haha. I really don't think it was an accidental announcement, but they've done that in the past.

    You guys do know that 99.9% of all the employees hired at Gamestop don't even play video games right? 80% of them don't even know who Mario is...I'm dead serious...when I went to Gamestop and asked for Super Mario Galaxy she asked me what a Mario was.

    i agree with omatic those are made up statistics you have to have lived in a cave away from civilization for the past 20+ years to not know who Mario is...even people who don't know anything about gaming know who Mario is

    Really? Because 99.9% of people who know what video games are know who Mario is. How do I know? I simply did what you did. I just reached into my ass and what do you know, some very reliable statistics.

    Gamestop hires one of the following:

    A) The socially challenged super nerd who does little but play video games and masturbate.
    B) A gamer with some amount of social skills
    C) Hot chicks to attract sexually repressed gamer nerds.

    That's most of the set up.

    Anyway, MW2 for the Wii is pretty much known to happen. The Wii CoD titles have been rather successful (hitting over a million copies for CoD5 and almost the same for CoD4), and all it is really is just porting, so you don't need to spend much on actually making the game. The Wii is pretty much getting last years CoD titles when the next one comes out, so when Black Ops is released probably sometime this fall, you'll see CoD6 on the Wii.

    But no, it hasn't officially been announced.

    Having worked in said establishment, I am going to challenge this.

    They also tend to hire their drinking buddies, or fuck up of roommates that need jobs.

    Believe it or not those statistics are pretty accurate. Gamestop doesn't hire people based on their knowledge of video games. They should just take that question off of the job application because they don't read it anyway. They'd hire a female who doesn't know any video games other than Halo 2 over a male with an extensive knowledge of video games who is capable of lifting heavy loads and has a nice resume just because she is more attractive.

    I know because it happened to me.

    That explains why they won't hire me...I'm overweight and I actually know shit...although I'm working on the weight part...and the second part is the reason why I can't get a boyfriend...apparently guys don't like girls who are smarter than them...especially when it comes to video games...
