Someone seems to of gotten a copy of Modern Warfare 2 early for PS3 and they have been live streaming it to the public. Something interesting in this video is that its played completely in third person and looks like it is not spectator or anything of the sorts. Could this be the big secret Infinity Ward has been talking about?

Whats your take on it?

It seems it is true according to a screeshot someone took of the game modes screen, hit the break to see the picture and a list of game modes. It is in another language but the users on the Infinity Ward forums were quick to translate it.

That would be absolutely awesome. I still haven't really gotten into controlling FPSes with a joypad, Third-Person works though for some odd reason. I actually try to avoid FPS-only shooters, because suck at them.

No this will just be someone spectating as this is a FIRST PERSON SHOOTER which is just a little thing that you didnt think of. plus all of the trailers of gameplay (on 360 anyways) show them playing first person and even on the youtube vid it says not me playing meaning it may be him watching another player

If its on PS3, then for sure the 360 release would have been leaked as well, maybe a dump by the end of this week?.... basically this shows that the game is in stores...pretty much what happened with ODST

Not necessarily, this guy just got a early copy, doesn't mean anyone else has it. Or that anyone would infact dump it.

It isnt a crime to speculate things.

lol 3rd person? u go ahead and use 3rd person view, while i use first person. let's c who gets a head shot first =D
Infinity Ward stated that you can only play all first person or third person, not mixed.

QUOTEIt's not something you can toggle on and off in ANY game," said Bowling. The special mode can only be played in private matches -- toggled on or off just like "Hardcore" settings -- or in playlists that are designated for third-person play. According to Bowling, everyone playing in a third-person playlist will be restricted to the viewpoint. "This is just another cool way to play the game," he said, "you obviously will still have the option to play gametypes normal as well.

    A woman with no arms and no legs was sitting on a beach. A man comes along and the woman says, "I've never been hugged before." So the man feels bad and hugs her. She says "Well i've also never been kissed before." So he gives her a kiss on the cheek. She says "Well I've also never been fucked before." So the man picks her up, and throws her in the ocean and says "Now you're fucked."

  • cearp @ cearp:
    @BakerMan - you can still "own" digital media, arguably easier and better than physical since you can make copies and backups, as much as you like.

    The issue is DRM
  • cearp @ cearp:
    You can buy drm free games / music / ebooks, and if you keep backups of your data (like documents and family photos etc), then you shouldn't lose the game. but with a disk, your toddler could put it in the toaster and there goes your $60

    :rofl2:
  • cearp @ cearp:
    still, I agree physical media is nice to have. just pointing out the issue is drm
  • rqkaiju2 @ rqkaiju2:
    i like physical media because it actually feels like you own it. thats why i plan on burning music to cds

    It's nice to not have to have a lot of physical things though, saves space

    @rqkaiju2, Physical media is a great source for archiving your data, none of that cloud storage shiz.
