Above: Hundreds of Xboxes cranking out Modern Warfare 3 and a million dollar tournament

If any franchise ever merited its own million dollar party, it’s probably the Call of Duty series. Currently the undisputed champion of retail and online multiplayer, who the hell wouldn’t want to head on down to a lavish, welcoming extravaganza with like-minded CoD fans? Oh, or perhaps get a first hands-on with Modern Warfare 3?!

Can’t be in LA for the biggest multiplayer party ever thrown? Well there’s still time, man! But assuming you can’t hop on a plane on a moment’s notice, we’ve got you covered. In our exclusive little photo gallery you’ll see the whole shebang from end to end. From the recreated IRL Burgertown and Scrapyard paintball course, to the FOUR HUNDRED or so Xbox 360s running one of the most anticipated games of the decade, your chance to see everything Call of Duty XP has on display is only a click away…

    Gotta say, I thought Burger Town and Scrapyard would be more impressive. As for the rest, well...it's Modern Warfare 3. What I loved about this article though is the new slideshow feature for the pictures. So much easier to look at then the old multi-page way.

    The expo was awesome. We got play with and against NBA players. Not to mention first to play the MW3 game. When are you gonna post the videos of the interviews you guys got of us. (military)

    lol i love how my browser f*cks up on me 3 times, but it still saves my comments regardless and posts it. Epic fail much?

    "wasnt this sh*t like 150$ for a ticket? and people really showed up bunch of f*cking idiots and when did you idiots put a wordfilter here, thats f*cking stupid" No, it's just you that's f*cking stupid. Listen here, typical anti-CoD BF3 drone:It's $150. That goes to charity. Plus, you get the Hardened Edition of MW3 for free when it costs $99.99. It pretty much evens out. Deal with the word filter champ.

    "wasnt this sh*t like 150$ for a ticket? and people really showed up bunch of f*cking idiots and when did you idiots put a wordfilter here, thats f*cking stupid " No, it's you that's f*cking stupid because you're a typical anti-CoD drone who doesn't research anything before he speaks. Not only do you get to go to this event, but the 150 dollars goes to charity and you get a free copy of the Hardened Edition which is 99.99 plus tax. Sounds like a good deal to me.

    Four hundred xboxes running at the same time??? Must've been like standing on the deck of a aircraft carrier :D I wonder how all those little 12-year old CoDdies were holding up at those Paintball courses, no killstreaks and everything...they must've been really pissed ^^

    I know you're joking but the event was only 18+ just wanted to clarify.

    the horde mode looks sweet - i was not gonna buy this but damn the MW2 weapons were verry cool - just need to beat Deus Ex 3 times first - oh and Gears 3, Rage, Skyrim...
  • isimikehinde - September 3, 2011 11:40 p.m.

    Cool, but doesn't look as sweet as the Pokemon tournament for some reason

    I love that they have a real Burger Town. Can anyone tell me what it says on the menu in picture 28?
  • Jonessemperfi1 - September 4, 2011 8:52 p.m.

    Menu had overly priced stale burgers. Extremely overly priced...

    I'm getting over the whole "Call of Duty needs to change and be good" debate. Sure, I'm not exactly into it any more, and I'm pretty sure being a "CoDer" is a new sub-category of being a "gamer," but this looks kinda fun. Mainly the paintball courses. I'd like to see something like this with Halo, Gears, or even Play-any-multiplayer-game-ever-at-certain-times event!

    wasnt this sh*t like 150$ for a ticket? and people really showed up bunch of f*cking idiots and when did you idiots put a wordfilter here, thats f*cking stupid
  • CanadianBeaverHunter - September 3, 2011 1:44 p.m.

    Looks like a fun event......Pics could use some Antista.
  • LIAMthescot - September 3, 2011 12:24 p.m.

    Looks cool but I'd prefer a Halo version. Just imagine, grav lifts in real life!
  • TDUBBS - September 3, 2011 12:05 p.m.

    dont really care about Call of Duty but the idea of playing in a paintball course resembling an actually COD map sounds amazing.
  • ShadowReaper666 - September 3, 2011 11:49 a.m.

    Remember when call of duty didn't suck dogs balls?
  • ThatGamerDude - September 3, 2011 11:33 a.m.

    I cant believe this event is only 3 blocks from my house! To bad its sold out... ill try sneaking in maybe?
