If you're a PowerUp Rewards member with GameStop, you might already have the official reveal date for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 .

Members today received an e-mail that gives you the "tactical advantage" because "the rest of the world won't find out until Friday, May 20." It's not an official announcement in and of itself, but it's a pre-order incentive: if you drop your deposit on the new CoD, you'll receive a GameStop exclusive, two-sided poster "packed with valuable game info." Just out of curiosity, how do you hang a two-sided poster…? Seriously?

Anyway, the date leads us to believe the announcement is just days away. Well, that and the tons of information that has been hitting the Internet over the past few weeks. Modern Warfare 3 is bound to be the biggest title of the year. Oh, just get used to the fact.

The only thing about the Black Ops I liked was the chance to see just how bad my friends really are after they brag about how good they were. Can't hide from the theatre mode lol.

I liked CoD back in the PS2 days. Played Black Ops but found it boring and uninventive after a week. "Get used to the fact" is exactly right and I hope those who like it have fun. All I have is apathy for this series now.

Lol the only things i liked black ops over modern warfare 2 is:
-Theatre Mode
-Zombies
-Splitscreen online (it sucks in multiplayer but is great with zombies)

Not counting single player on both games.

It looks like this game will please the COD boys. I may rent it but my eye is on BF3.

I was in GS today & saw those huge Pre-order posters.

The one side is that pic shown above, & the other side is a giant NYC newspaper with the the war as the top headline, & story below.

(Just my opinion, but I think the NYC newspaper would is the better side for display)

I refuse to get used to the fact. It is simply too irritating. Seriously though, with all the news that's been leaked, how will anyone with even the slightest interest in the series and a computer be surprised by this announcement. Damn, we know more about MW3 than we do about Resistance 3 (Okay, it's about even) and the former isn't even official yet. Ah, me achin' head.
Peace.

im getting excited for this.
looks like will FINALLY have the COD game worth its weight!
looks like getting 3 studios working on it did the trick!
im starting to think antivision did this deliberately, leaked the info so it has a larger effect on BF3 then just coming out and showing it.
everyone gets more excited for leaked info then official info.

Its great to see a few fellow PSXers sticking with BF3. I know it will be the superior game, Bad Co. 2 was better than Crap Ops in ever way. I picked up LA Noire last night and they asked if I wanted to Pre-o MW3, I proudly stated how I will stick to the real military shooter this year that is BF3.

If you intend to pick up MW3 that's fine, but your paying for an expensive expansion and glitchy garbage. Now Jawknee and I get to make fun of the CoD sheep this year!

"I know it will be the superior game"

oh and the jump between cod4 and mw2 was quite substantial so im sure this one will be a step up

As a matter of fact, Frostbite 2.0 is shaping up incredibly. So what does that mean? Battlefield 3 has superior and upgraded tech so, Battlefield 3 > MW3 at least from a technical stand-point.

Now kids, when you update an engine you update every aspect of the game, graphically, sound design, everything and when the Developers associated with CoD have publicly stated they will not update the engine, which they SHOULD, because it would be "counter productive" it means BF3 will no doubt be superior. The MW engine is one of if not the worst FPS shooter engine in history, bugs, lag, exploits, awful sound design. So obviously, Activision's blatant stubbornness to keep this engine will continue to doom the current CoD games. So its a step backwards if anything. CoD=Garbage.

two-sided poster: if the person using has a glass sliding door or something i guess.

But MW3? I'll play this for sure. But I'll be borrowing from friends. My thirst for online MP has been dwindling for the past months.

No, its being officially announced on May 20 (well, at least everyone thinks so). And as far as we know, it comes out November 8.

I just recently started playing BC2 online and was totally amazed how much better it was then Black Ops. I found MW1(PC) to be very fun online, MW2(PS3/360) was so badly broken and glitchy it was hard to have fun with it, and Black Ops(Ps3) got really boring once I prestiged.

MW3 should have unlockable characters or character customization, you should have to unlock attachments not buy them, and a few others.

Still not going to be nearly as fun as BF3 🙂

Modern Warfare addicts will get their fixes, so that's good. At least they'll have another one to enjoy but it's not my cup of tea.

My money, hands down, will be put towards BF3. However, seeing as my bday is the 14th, I am sure to also recieve UC3, and MW3 just cos I'm loved that much. 🙂

I will def pick up MW3 with out a doubt. BF3 I'm not sure yet because I've only seen footage for the pc version and just cause the graphics are great doesn't mean the game will be great. I know what to expect with MW3 and that's why I'll buy it before playing it.
