Various retailers have now confirmed that at least one part of the rumor
is true; Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
will launch on November 8th, 2011
For those of you intent of running out and pre-ordering the game now, GameStop is offering a free poster to the first people who put money down. I can't confirm if it's the case for all GameStops, but my local store said they had 70 of those posters to give away, so you may want to hurry up with that fiver.
So, now that it's settled, head over here
and watch your region's trailer to whet your appetite for the Modern Warfare 3
a little further. Then begin figuring out how you're going to get out of your obligations to your job/school/family on November 8th.
