Modern Warfare 3

Question by Clay P: How did my friend get Modern Warfare 2 several days in advance?
I was looking at my friends list on PSN the other day and one of my friends was playing Modern Warfare 2. It wasn’t a beta or a demo. It is the actual game. He does live in America (New York I think) so there is no way it is because it released earlier in another country. Any ideas?

Best answer:

If it was several days he was most probably playing a burnt copy. If it started yesterday some people were shipped it a day early. It was a “Shipping error” from a website known for their very common “Shipping errors”

    Some stores break the release date so they can sell all their copies before their competitor. It always happens to other games also.

    Also, some people hook their friends up if they work at Gamestop.

  5. D3ZZY Says:

    Gamestop announced that they allowed some northeast stores to sell the game early because small businesses were selling already and Gamestop didn’t want competiotin.

    The same way i got my copy early. If you have friends or cousins or something that work at video game stores or Microsoft, or if you yourself work there. Some smaller stores sell the game to people for more money, because they don’t care when the game comes out.

    well in some countries they actually pre-released the game because they were so big on it that they didnt want any riots accuring. i know because i read it on the internet =P
