Game for Good Uses MW2 to Benefit Kids Charity

November 25, 2009 -

Retailer Game, Activision and Xbox Live have teamed up for a UK-based charity drive based around Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.

Activision will donate £1 to the War Child charity for every UK gamer playing MW2 on Xbox Live on December 5th and 6th. Additionally, Xbox Live Gold Memberships will be free that weekend in an effort to boost participation in Games for Good.

War Child benefits children affected by war.

a bit off topic this but I was just checking the back of the case of "jungle strike" (megadrive/genesis) and saw a screen shot of the whitehouse and rememberd that level set there the controversy of modern warfare 2 being set in america really is nothing new I dont remember any uproar with jungle strike though

I always used to say "Sod the mission" and missile the White House to death.

I like the idea of what the developers are doing. Good for them. There is actually some good on this game. But will this go on the news? NOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Resistance is futile.

Hey Activision, it's not charity if you have strings attached! Way to go, profitting on WAR CHILDREN! So if the War Children don't get a big donation it's all our fault for not buying your game? You sick, demented bastards!

Andrew EisenWhy the interest in Ghomeshi? Is it relevant to something we've been discussing? (Not saying it's not but it seems a rather random thing to bring up.)11/26/2014 - 6:39pm

Neo_DrKefkaThe Ralph Retort is a toxic mess and the guy is literally building his career on the back of the GamerGate movement. Whether you believe GamerGate is right or wrong this is a man profiteering on this war.11/26/2014 - 2:56pm
