Call of Duty 4 reporting on November 5

Activision to wage Modern Warfare on PS3, PC, and 360 on cusp of holiday shopping season; US beta test under way.

Grand Theft Auto IV's now-notorious postponement has freed up $60 in many gamers' 2007 budgets. Today, Activision helped many of said consumers amend their shopping lists when it confirmed Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare will ship on November 5. The announcement puts the highly anticipated PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC shooter on the cusp of the all-important holiday shopping season, which will also feature such high-profile titles as Mass Effect, Super Mario Galaxy, and Uncharted: Drake's Fortune.

Call of Duty 4 is being developed by Infinity Ward, the studio that created the franchise before it was bought outright by Activision in 2003. (Several console versions in the series were developed by Spider-Man 3 developer Treyarch and Spark Unlimited.) Like Battlefield 2, it moves a previously World War II-focused series into the modern era, chronicling the bloodshed during two fictional near-future wars in the former Soviet Union and the Middle East.

Activision's announcement comes just hours after the publisher launched the Call of Duty 4 multiplayer beta test. For more on the game, check out GameSpot's hands-on preview.

COD should have stayed with the World War series. But still. Call of Duty:Modern Warfare will live up to be a great game.

CoD 1 and UO(expansion) are still the best in series by far. Anyone who hasn't played the originals, that are console only gamers obviously, should definitely run out and play it. It will no doubt run on almost everyone's pc and it still looks nice to play.

I just played the Medal of Honor: Airborne demo, and I think it gives Call of Duty for some serious competition, even though it doesn't have as much hype. MoH really showed me that a WW2 FPS can still be just as amazing as any other shooter.

hey guys quick question?, on my 360 i can put something on download and turn off my console and it works in lower power mode and downloads the demos etc and then turns off, but for a ps3 i recently bought u cant shut it down into low power mode? am i missing something, or do i need to change some setting to get it to also download in low power mode? then turn off, or is it that your not able to do this yet with the ps3?

I love how fast these things turn into fanboy flamefests. Good times. Good times. Aside from that looks like November will be the month to get games. Assassin's Creed, Mass Effect (maybe), and now CoD4

wow lets bring up the most overhyped game of all time in halo 3 how fun is that. Same thing not different better graphics if they meant something important and a few new weapons maps mean nothing because its the same gameplay and its not much different better off saving ur money for other games instead of halo 3 anyway. Then again the game has 1 million preorders by the fanboys so w/e waste ur money on it then.

gt4 the funny thing is most of these sales will probably come from 360 (if not pc sure as hell wont be ps3) so whats your point? its got the biggest market and the bigger online community on the consoles. ye halo is over hyped but it only got that hype from being a great game the first 2 times around. And your a moron.. they always come to pc eventually. But ye this games gona be sick... it mass effect an assassins creed are sure to make November quite enjoyable.

Why is that people think Galo3 is the only game worth buying. Its not, accept it. BTW halo is only on the xbrick 360, so they are people who own the ps3, and who play on the pc. So how can that game really affect COD4 sales as much as u sad fanboys wished it would. Halo if anything is the true showmanship of over hyped trash selling well.

Like I keep saying this game will send RAINBOW 6 VEGAS to sleep, This is better then GRAW, SOCOM, you name it COD4 is the next greatest hit

I'm just waiting for gamespot to review these games. I'm really looking foward to buying either mass effect, assasins creed or, CoD 4.

GTA IV's delay definitely freed-up $60 in my wallet. However, I'll still be busy with Halo3 when CoD4 finally drops.

GTA being delayed didn't free up any cash for me as I had no intent of buying it. But november is soooo farrrrr away. I'm absolutely hanging for this game.

i hate cod2's singleplayer. it's so linear. you have no freedom to move around in even the evniorments that you fight it. you can't jump over something unless they want you too. the game is just eye candy. the scripted events get boring too imo. The A.I blocks your path so they can teel yoou the next objectives but the worst thing is the A.I. Sometimes even on veteran you see the A.I doing stupid things like firing at point blank range missing. The only thing the game has for it is, sound effects, graphics and multiplayer(which i enjoyed quite a bit though). the reason i'm looking forward to 4 is cause of the graphics and multiplayer. i'll probably be dissapoinhted with singeplayer again.

Hope its good, havent enjoyed CoD since prob the 2nd one. Glad to see its not ANOTHER WW game. Got some interesting char upgrades. Esp the Anit Tea bagging, aka last stand lol. Thought last stand was the dumbest thing I ever heard of until one of the devs called it anti tea bagging, sucks when someone does that to you, very funny to kill them while they try and do it thou lol.

whilst im looking forward to a new call of duty i don't think the weapons will have the same feel as looking down the sights of the kar and timing your shots, im guessing its gonna be full of m16's ak's and the sa80, i hope its not gonna be like using the mp40 through out a mission as i really liked the rifles
