Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 tries to outrage world

Activision Pulls Modern Warfare 3 Child Death Outrage Video
Was it Activision or wasn't it that posted a video apparently from Modern Warfare 3 on Youtube before pulling said video? We may never know.

The video (a screenshot of which you can see in this story) was up and running today. It featured a terrorist outrage. That's all we're saying.

The video can't be seen any more. It was, however, widely compared in its outrage potential to MW2's 'No Russian' airport civillian killing level.

We've seen them both. The second one is a cut scene. The first is playable.

Funny how the games that get the tabloid outrage prior to launch seem to sell really well. Funny how certain game series always seem to manage to provoke tabloid outrage before launch.

I really wish devs/pubs would stop trying to make money out of tabloid outrage. It isn't really helping the industry as a whole.

Well `No Russian` was a unusual childless airport!

It's strange how children rarely feature in fps/sandbox games.
I mean GTA is very realistic, but try finding a child.
MW is a good realistic game, and if World War 3 happened (like it does in MW3) then children would die. they are going for realism.

Jesus, people are too sensitive. It's a game first off, not real. And, have you watched any movies recently? I'd say the violence in movies is pretty realistic and bloody.
