Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Demo Hits Xbox Live Marketplace

Posted on August 23, 2012 AT 06:32pm

You’ve begged. You’ve pleaded. You’ve express how much you can’t wait to experience the next chapter of the Call of Duty franchise. So, here it is—a single-player demo for the hot new phenomenon that is Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.

Wait, hold on—Modern Warfare 3? The Call of Duty game that was released last year? You’re sure this isn’t supposed to be a demo for the upcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops II?

No, it’s no mistake, as Activision has indeed now released a single-player demo for a game that came out nine months ago. I’ve got to say, I find that a little peculiar. It’s certainly better than a demo never coming out, but giving us a demo mere months before the next Call of Duty is set to hit rubs me the wrong way a bit.

What rubs me the wrong way A LOT, on the other hand, is that this demo is only for Xbox Live Gold subscribers. Seriously Microsoft, is this a joke? A single-player demo for a game nine months old, and people who aren’t paying for Xbox Live aren’t good enough to get to try it? Ridiculous.
