now Wii owners can experience the….. wait, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare?
Yep, Activision have now announced that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (also known by most gamers as COD4) will be available on the Wii, the exact same date as Modern Warfare 2 is set to be released.
Kotaku.com writes: “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will be a port of Infinity Ward’s blockbuster hit Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, originally released in 2007 on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. The Wii version of that game is planned to arrive on November 10 of this year, the same day that Modern Warfare 2 ships to retail.”
Call of Duty 3 and Call of Duty: World at War have already been released on the Wii, but if you remember, Modern Warfare skipped the Wii, but now they seem eager to release it.
A question that I’m sure will strike most people is: “why bother releasing it now?” This release not only leads me to this question, but also my thoughts on Activision “milking” the Modern Warfare name are increasing dramatically.
Activision have not released much information about the release, nor have they released screenshots.
What are your thoughts on Activision “milking” the Modern Warfare name, are they milking it, or is the release of this game on the Wii a sign of good gesture to the consumers of previous Call of Duty games to have hit the Wii?
