Whenever a video game makes it into the local news, it means someone either backed over someone's face with their car and claimed " Grand Theft Auto made him do it," or a certain title is just really, really big.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is in the latter category, as hundreds of thousands – perhaps even millions – of eager gamers with shining eyes and twitching fingers snagged their copy yesterday. However, not everything is roses as it seems many complaints have been popping up around the Internet; for the most part, these complaints revolve around the supreme online multiplayer experience. Some have been surprised at the severity of some of these issues, and players have even noticed problems with certain unlockables and Trophies/Achievements. Forums everywhere feature topics with such complaints: we've seen users not being able to join games on either the PS3 or Xbox 360, the matchmaking failing to work on the latter, and even outright freezing issues. However, Infinity Ward isn't just sitting around, hoping everything works itself out; they've already said they're working on a patch for the PS3 version, although 360 owners might be a little confused as to why their platform hasn't been included in the "fix-it" discussion. These problems are definitely affecting all versions of the game, as feedback proves.
Ah, but don't you worry. Everything will be settled soon and you'll be left with one of the finest games of the generation, as most all reviews will tell you. Just have a little patience…
