IN BRIEF: What's Happened Today? (August 29th 2012)

Publish date:

Playing with Modern Warfare 2's night vision goggles in the MCV basement was the best of times.

So please forgive us if we become giddy with excitement with the news that having skipped a Prestige release for Modern Warfare 3, Activision is back at it again with Black Ops II.

So what do we get this time? Only a remote control quadcopter (which, although technically not true, is modern talk for a helicopter in our books)! The downside is that it costs 159.99. But with the game not out until November that gives us plenty of time to sell a kidney on eBay.
