Today is Veterans Day in the States and Remembrance Day in Canada and the UK. Traditionally, this is a day where citizens honor armed services personnel and veterans.
...it's also two days after http://www.trueachievements.com/Call-of-Duty-Black-Ops-....htm
One Canadian veteran seems to have a pretty big problem with this. In an interview
with the Winnipeg Free Press, veteran Ron Parkes said:
I think it is very tacky to include the distribution of a graphic war-based game like this during a week that we are supposed to be honouring those who have fallen to the conflicts this game depicts.
While he may have a valid point, I think it's very short-sighted considering Activision has been releasing their Call of Duty games around this week for the past FIVE YEARS:http://www.trueachievements.com/Call-of-Duty-2-xbox-360.htm
