So most of us gamers by now know that Call of Duty will always be a annual rehashed release under the publishing wings of Activision.

One of the biggest complaints about Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 was the spawn camping. Well, it appears that spawn camping is still an issue for Modern Warfare 3 that might see a lot of exploiting now that a new video has surfaced showing how you can get a 76 killstreak in under one minute.
Infinity Ward's community manager, Robert Bowling, took to Twitter to announce that more than 1600 cheaters, exploiters, boosters and hackers have been banned from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. This means that you can now play in peace without worrying about some guy flying around at blinding speeds, knifing people like Ghostface from Scream.
Apparently the mentality of download-first and (maybe or maybe not) buy-later is spreading worse than a venereal disease at a celebrity retirement home. A new report from the BBC suggests that illegal video game downloading has increased by 20%.
So this is what gaming has come down to: people getting so mad they threaten to blow up the place and kill all its employees because they can't buy a game.

Some real-life Grand Theft Auto has happened, except it wasn't for or about GTA but rather Activision's annual first-person shooter series, Call of Duty.
