If you know Call of Duty , you know Ghost. And because nobody has officially announced the title and details for this year's CoD entry, the rumors continue to fly.

The latest comes courtesy of the UK Official PlayStation Magazine (courtesy of CVG ), and it seems Modern Warfare 3 – supposedly in development at Infinity Ward – will feature series favorite Ghost as the lead character. In fact, according to "insider whispers," the game will be a prequel, although we have no concrete information regarding the game's setting and plot. For the record, other rumors in the OPM mag say that Dead Space 3 is "already in production" (which wouldn't surprise anyone; we know it'll be coming at some point), and PS2 games will soon be downloadable on the PSP. The last, which we reported on earlier, is that Konami is working on a Metal Gear Solid HD trilogy for the PS3. But for now, Ghost is once again in the limelight and Infinity Ward may have wanted to embrace that character's popularity amongst the CoD faithful.

Also, prequels are big these days. We're just not sure which CoD title MW3 would be a prequel to

A Prequel!!?? I want to see what happens after MW2, not before it… I couldn't care less… unless it was about the events before COD4, and they brought back the simplicity of MP from cod 4.. then I'd buy day 1… MW2 didn't feel like a sequel, it felt like a new series, and black ops is following suit… I just want my basic guns, original perks, Pipeline cuz that map was amazing, and 3 default killstreaks.. lol call me nostalgic, but I can't go back to cod4.. the game's pretty much Hacked crazy (MW2 aswell)If they supported the game more with updates (Ya i know, its too old…) it would still be a popular shooter.. Many old FPS' games are still supported by their devs, why can't cod4?

(Sorry 4 the rant, ddnt realize how much I was typing..)

PS2 games on the PSP, awesome! Great news because it can probably lead to PS2 emulation on the PS3. Oh and Dead Space 3, can't wait for that! MGS collection in HD, one of the best series of all time!

Oh, and yeah that news about some dude now leading in MW3, Whoopdeedo.

As long as the story is compelling and well written I'm fine with a prequel.

@oyashiro:

I have to disagree, I think the story of the MW2 is no less compelling than classic hollywood movies like The Rock. Except, you get to play as the hero.

Its fine with me that its a prequel. I hope they make a real good story haven't seen one yet. But online has always been good in COD games.

I liked mw1&w, black ops was alright, but I think I lost the cod mania. I've played better games since black ops and havnt gone back. Not saying I won't. Not too sure how I feel about mw3. I'm playing two worlds 2 right meow. And I'm wait for wkc 2 at the moment.

But one thing about thos article that I really. Like is the ps2 games for psp. Sold mine… but I hope to see ps2 games comming to the psn for ps3. I need my dot.hack fix and my ffX fix. And my kh fix. So hopefully we'll be seeing ps2 games for the ps3's psn soon.

I suppose it would depend on how far back they go, but if they make a prequel, would they have to change the title? Perhaps they might change it to "not-so Modern Warfare", or "Modern-ish Warfare".

Thats the hole point to COD. Keep the control and perspective of the game the same but different story, maps, guns, games and perks. I wish they had kept some perks the same and wish they would get off there asses and patch there screw ups. But I guess money leeds to laziness…

Hiram, uncalled for.

Jawknee has been around in this community for ages and is DEFINATELY not a troll.

If you've got a problem with him, grab his email or something and address it personally. Otherwise, keep it to yourself.

Also, judging from previous comments from you in other articles, it's really you who trolls this page. If you have nothing of interest to say about the topic at hand, don't bother commenting. A lot of us have had enough of your off-topic ramblings and name calling.

This site is not like IGN or N4G or any of those other gaming sites, so if you don't have anything of interest to say about MW3 or PS3 rumours mentioned in the article, GO AWAY!!

HiramJ, let me explain something.

For the most part Jawknee is a well respected member of this site. He will sometimes make some comments that seem slightly out of line and trollish but that is made up for by all of his other comments.

Now would you kindly stay on topic and not assault various members with less then reasonable comments.

I absolutely agree with you I can't stand commenters on YouTube all they do is spew races comments and play tough guy over the internet it's annoying they should just disable all comments on YouTube. It would make the world of difference.

PS2 games on the PSP here's hoping Resident Evil: Code Veronica will be on that list of games they're going to start putting on the PSP. Or better yet either GTA: Vice City or San Andreas.

I have a feeling it might be for the NGP, not the PSP.

Can the PSP handle the PS2 emulation process? I know the NGP can, but the PSP? Could be a typo, but I don't know.

WorldEndsWithMe

It wouldn't have to emulate the PS2, that's a tall fricking order, Sony can just port games down. Unfortunately that might mean most games ported to PSP will have to be first party. Let's hope not though.

I like the idea of a prequel but I'd actually prefer Ghost to tag along instead of being the actual playable character. I think that's what made him so cool in MW2. He was always there with you, helping out. He was a great partner and an all around bad ass. He friggin PWNS Hale and Sev I'll tell you that.

Black Ops will be the last CoD game for me. Just doesn't interest me anymore.

As for an MGS HD Trilogy, HELL YEAH!! D1P for me!! MGS3 was a masterpiece.

I hope it's the Substance and Subsistance versions of the games they put in the trilogy. That free roaming camera in MGS3 Subsistance made the game a whole world of better!

Don't any of you pay attention to this series? Every CoD is a prequel in itself because they all jump around in location, time, and characters. It can still be MW3 and then have some lame flashback sequence where whoever the player of the minute is thinks back to a time while a harp plays and the game can drop you into Ghost's boots for another session in the schizophrenic chopped up storyline.

I hope Uwe Boll makes a CoD movie.

Any bets when we see a COD HD Remake as well as a COD box set? Or maybe a COD greatest hits, where the favourite maps and levels of all the COD games is put onto one disk.

CoD has already recieved the HD treatment! The original Call of Duty, released on Live and PSN.

I got it free with MW2 Prestige. No way was I gonna buy the original CoD for 25 bucks!! (Australian, not US)

i can predict the storey of ghost already:
-ghost is recruited
-ghost shoots people
-storey is left on a cliffhanger so further titles can be made

this reminds me of every other COD game out
