Gamers claim Modern Warfare 4 site, blackmail Infinity Ward

Gamers claim Modern Warfare 4 site, blackmail Infinity Ward photo



This story is absolutely brilliant. While most of us can only see as far ahead as Modern Warfare 2, a gaming community with the dual gifts of foresight and shamelessness have seized a sneaky opportunity, deciding to register the domain name modernwarfare4.com with plans to blackmail Infinity Ward and get free copies of the game when it presumably comes out in 2013.

Visiting the Web site provides the following message for those who desire the domain name:

Hello!

If you are reading this, you may well be the web administrator for Infinity Ward.

If you are, there is a chance that you may well require this domain. Don't worry, you can have it - in exchange for a little 'good will gesture' for the little gaming community that owns this domain and has been playing your games for years.

What we'd like is a copy of the game that this domain would be used for, - one copy for each and every member of our gaming community.

If you wish to discuss this further, drop me an email - welovecod@ziip.co.uk or goto www.ziip.co.uk and leave a message to Jester.

Many Regards :)

James
Apparently, the gaming community in question has sixty-two members, so that's quite a few copies of Modern Warfare 4. Despite the absolute gall, you have to admire the devious nature of the plan, not to mention the long-term dedication this requires. If we only get a Modern Warfare once every two years, this is going to be quite a lengthy campaign. I want to hate these people ... but I can't stop myself respecting them.
