Aussie Modern Warfare 3 midnight launch roundup

Strap on your night-vision goggles because it's going to be dark outside if you go to a Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 midnight launch.

With the Battlefield 3 leak spoiling the fun of midnight launches last week, retailers around Australia are gearing up again to stay open late next Tuesday night for the launch of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.

EB Games is opening up dozens of stores around the country, with several shops being designated "official EB midnight launch" locations. These stores (listed below) will not only feature food and drinks, but also Nerf gun firing ranges and green-screen photography. In particular, the two Queensland stores will be firing up Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 on a cinema screen.

Can Modern Warfare 3 outsell last year's Call of Duty: Black Ops?

Official EB midnight launches:
Carindale, QLD
Wetherill Park, NSW
Knox, VIC
Indooroopilly, QLD
Tea Tree Plaza, SA
Castle Towers, NSW
Fountain Gate, VIC
Midland, WA; Because of Western Australian trading laws, this store will be opening early on Wednesday morning.

The list of EB Games stores opening up at midnight next Tuesday is huge, so be sure to check out the official EB Games Australia Facebook page for the full list.

As always, be sure to call the store you plan on going to ahead of time to confirm that it's still happening. As was demonstrated last week, midnight launches are at the mercy of street dates not being broken.

@damojeebs @thegodatgames What platform were you guys playing BF3 on? If it was on consoles then of course it was a disappointment. You're not playing it right :P. I'll probably swing down as I haven't got much else to do.


im actually looking forward to this game now that bf3 didnt live up to my expectations. this will prolly be a good game until it is detroyed when people find a way to hack it like in mw2.
