Well we have heard school and college teenagers bunking their classes to watch movies or play video games. But this case is very much different. A judge in England was so excited about Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 that he skipped his work for the day so that he can continue the shooting. The judge going by the name of Will Statton was desperately waiting for Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 to be released. He had lined up outside HMV for a midnight launch of Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 and he had the following to say while he was busy waiting outside to get his hands on the game:
“It was like Charlie waiting outside the chocolate factory”
After playing the game the whole night, Will found himself to be very tired the other day so he decided to skip his work. For this he feigned sickness and played the game all day. The result of this held up a pending trial. Will is a hardcore gamer and was a barrister for 15 years. He spends nearly thousands of pounds every year on video games.

We also reported a few days ago that MW 2 sold better on the 360 than on the PS3. After Activision’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 sold closer to 5 million copies on the launch day it self, it not only broke records, but it sold more on Microsoft’s Xbox 360 compared to the PlayStation 3. According to Dennis Durkin of Interactive Entertainment Business, the Xbox 360 version of the record breaking game has sold more than the double of what has been sold on the PlayStation 3.
