Modern Warfare 2: Heading to Nintendo Wii soon?

By Posted 18 Apr 2010, 10:08

While you may want to take this with a pinch of salt, we have some very exciting news for Nintendo Wii owners. A recent email scan sent by retailers GameStop has revealed that Modern Warfare 2 could be landing this year.

As reported from SystemLink, an image of the supposed Modern Warfare 2 box art for Wii can be seen just above the box for The Beatles: Rock Band.

While this could just be the work of a very talented photoshopper, it could also be a terrible slip by GameStop. As most of you will be aware, Infinity Ward didn’t handle Modern Warfare on the Wii, that was developed by Treyarch instead, under the name Reflex.

Could Modern Warfare 2 be getting the same treatment on the Wii this year? Lets hope so. If there is any truth to this, we’ll surely hear details on it at E3.

Do you think the image is real or not?

    • spetnaz

      ik its going to be fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!on wi-fi

  • Truth

    The wii is a technological garbage heap. Any game released on it wil look like something out of the late 90's and play badly due to the sub-standard controls. Destrutable scenary and vehicle physics will also be poor due to the Wii's pathetic processing power. If they are releasing it on the Wii, its only to make a quick buck off all those who bought into this media hyped white box of rubbish. If you want to experience entertainment of the 21st century by a PS3 or Xbox 360. END OF.

      The Modern Warfare games don't even have drivable vehicles / physics or destructible environments.

      CoD4 Wii port was excellent, I have it on 360 and Wii and the only difference is some minor graphics changes and lowered framerate.

      *Laughs at the fact you tried extra hard to support your ignorant statement by naming yourself "truth".

      Im pretty sure that the Wii isnt about graphics. O.o
      What happened to just played video games with the whole family.
      I have a PS3, and it would be awesome if the wii did have awesome graphics but thats not why it sold the most.

    • David

      wii is more sold than ps3 and x box 360 has 2 pay for internet bitch

  • Jorge

    I want it to be true. It would be a def buy for me. and to me it does not matter if the graphics don't meet up to the Xbox and Ps3 versions. As long as the game is fun I will buy it. MWR is fun as hell,good graphics or not. I have already spent like 20 days of play time on it since Nov 2009. Graphics are the least of my concerns. It's irrelevant. I just want some good games for my Wii. and I can't/rather not buy another console.

    • Jenson

      I think that "Truth" may be telling the truth here. He's also brought up an important point. Gaming isnt all about graphics, but then neither is processing power. With more processing power you can make better AI, more realistic physics and just programme more stuff in general. Games are just computer programmes and the end of the day and the better the computer the more stuff that programme can do. The Wii has just a fraction of the power of the XBOX 360 or PS3 and therefore in case you havnt noticed, no big processor intensive releases like GTA have come out. Any games that do come out on the Wii after being released on the other 2 consoles are stripped bare as this game will HAVE to be. You Jorge, as you mention are one of the suckers who failed to distinguish the fact that you were being ripped off by Nintendo. The extra 50 bucks you pay for the PS3 or 360 is a much better deal considering the better multiplayer experiences, better controler and the many many many times more powerful machine that can have better games. There is a reason the Wii is only for mini-games.

    @ Jenson – Until Sony starts putting out peripherals like the Zapper for it's motion product Move or until they come out with Wii HD, this will have to do… dual analog sticks on an FPS are sooo last century. Motion + FPS = Next Gen.

  • Jack

    I agree with Jenson. The PS3 and X-Box movement and controls for Ca ll Of Duty are just pathetic. Where as the Wii controls are much better, since its like you're actually holding a gun, not a remote. The P/X movements are very choppy since you have joy-sticks and it is much harder to aim and maneuver, and it is not as smooth as the movements with the Wii Remote. With the Wii you have a joy-stick to accelerate with and a "gun" to aim and turn with. With the P/X all you have is 2 pathetic joy-sticks that have terrible control.

  • Aaron

    speaking of control issues, I have played cod4 on both x360 and wii, and although the 360 graphics are much easier on the eyes than the wii, i would rather play a first person shooter on the wii simply because of the ease of maneuvering and aiming. i would much rather flick my wrist from target to target than push on a joystick and wait up to a few seconds, if the target is farther away, in order to take my shot. i predict that the next version of the wii will blow sony and microsoft out of the water. nintendo just needs to veer away from so many cute, cuddly minigames.

    WELL I AM A PREVIOUS OWNER OF THE 360 AND OWN THE WII AND I SEEN IT ON THE PLAYSTATION HONESTLY THE WII IS JUST AS GREAT AS THE OTHER TWO SYSTEMS SO WHAT ITS NOT BLUE RAY SO WHAT YOU CAN'T THROW A DVD IN IT EITHER BUT THE GRAPHICS ARE GREAT AND THE ONLINE GAMING IS FREE ALSO. I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO MW2 COMING OUT ON THE WII IT WILL BE A BIG SELLER GUARINTY. I WILL BUY IT FIRST DAY.

  • o.o

    Modern warefare 2 + Wii = so much better than mw2 for ps3 or lunch box 360

  • Commentor

    I hope Modern Warfare 2 comes to Wii. I have Modern Warfare Reflex, and its awesome! I hate how Infinity Ward always skips the Wii, they has TreyArch make Reflex. Even Black Ops is going to be on Wii, so when Modern Warfare 3 comes out for the 360, 720, PS3, aNns PS4, the Wii and Wii NG are going to miss out. I have a friend with A 360, All I have is a Wii and PS2, (I'll buy something from the eighth generation) and Modern Warfare 2 is awesome, I loved mowing 'em down in "No Russian", and the knife throw at Shepard was Epic.

  • jkfjdk

    well i have mw and mw2 on 360 and i also love to play reflex on the wii so if mw2 came out on the wii i would buy it i like the wii pointer controls better than the 360

  • sammy assil

    first of all the wii controls like most of you said are so much better than the xbox360 and ps3 and everybody whos saying it shouldnt come out to wii why did you search this so you could make wii owners missout on modernwarfare 2! if they make modernwarfare 2 for wii ill buy it on the first day it comes out!

  • the man

    i hope mw2 comes out for wii

    • daniel

      me to

  • Jim

    I love how you fanboys are saying how the wii graphics aren't good and all that other useless bullcrap! I don't know about you technosexual freaks, but I care more about the gameplay, than I do the lame graphics. Wii is fun, and Nintendo is amazing when it comes to video games. I would love to see Modern Warfare 2 for wii. It's sony and microsoft copying from Nintendo, not the other way around (kinect, ps move). For those of you saying the wii controls aren't the best, then why is ps3 and 360 doing the same thing. F!!! all of you nintendo haters, go die already!

    • K3vin

      hey it sony thts copying u guys n, not microsoft . atleast microsoft respects nintendo enough that they did kinect without any controller , unline Sony who copied the remote and nunchuk only to give u a " wireless" nunchuk and a wii remote with a lightbulb on top .

  • lol

    its fake, if you look at the 2 in the name and search the logo on the internet you can see that they don't compare

  • daniel

    whare can i buy it when it comes out?

  • Kuro

    u no wt, just stop fing being negative about wether it comes out or not! If it does, ill buy it, and ill love it! however, if it dont come out, so wat? there is always that vague hope that sony, microsoft, and nintendo will join into 1 video game company. (Ya right.)

  • GodGui
  • Aaron

    People its fake.

    how? black ops just came out and if mw 2 whas for wii it would come out before black ops
