Modern Warfare 2 demo released


Activision has released a single-player demo of gargantuan first-person shooter Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 some nine months after the game launched.

The demo, which is available to download from PlayStation Network and Xbox Live, features the Cliffhanger level in its entirety.

Infinity Ward's Modern Warfare 2 is the most successful game of all time. It crashed past the $1bn mark after only two months on sale.

Which makes the decision to release a demo all the more puzzling. But there you go.

The next Call of Duty, Black Ops, is coming to PS3, 360, PC and Wii on 9th November.
