    Is Activision even trying anymore?

    So I was looking for wallpapers, and I saw this wallpaper for MW3
    http://blog.mad4flash.com/wp-content...-wallpaper.jpg

    So then I thought to myself "Hey, didn't I have a wallpaper for Endwar that used to look just like that?" So I look some more, and sure enough,

    After that I thought "Only one of these can be legit..." So I looked up the cover title of Endwar and saw the troop with the same type of head gear,

    I did a bit more searching and found; http://media.desura.com/images/membe...0040030764.jpg , and for those ospreys.... http://images.wikia.com/endwar/image...lkyrie-JSF.png , http://images.wikia.com/endwar/image...eep_strike.jpg

    So at this point I rest my case. They just slapped a recolor on it and the logo on it, and called it theirs.

    Is that an official MW3 wallpaper? The lack of Activision logo makes me think it's a fan-made thing.

    What's the source for the MW3 wallpaper?

    Source of the wallpaper? Because slapping "Modern Warfare 3" onto anything does not mean that it was intended for Modern Warfare 3 or created by Activision.

    Doesn't help your case that there's no Activision logo.

    I think someone slapped a filter on the Endwar poster and added a MW3 logo. Just seems a little fan-made, I wouldn't break out the torches and pitchforks quite yet.

    EA does the same for ME3 promotion, it shared the exact same shit as some other game (can't remember which the other one was though), just with added Reaper hitting the roof of abandoned building instead of it just sitting there.

    You did plenty of research on EndWar, but none on MW3?

    Or someone did the PS work themselves and activision had nothing to do with it? Godforbid a game use the same type of headgear or the same type of chopper. Go cry about a game studio you hate somewhere else.

    Wait wait wait wait wait.

    You're telling me that real technology can't be used in two different games? Well crap. I better stop working on this game that has cars in it.

    I gotta admit, I was mindblown until I saw the same possibility everyone else did.

    Photoshop a Modern Warfare 3 logo on to a picture and it's easy to call BS.
    Nice effort though, but until you show some sources for the MW3 wallpaper, I don't think I'll believe it.
    Although it wouldn't surprise me.

    Ok, to all those saying I used PS on it, you can find this wallpaper on many websites, some of which I shall link here

    None are official, but then again, I could find a source for official MW3 wallpapers, and none of the ones Ive seen have the Activision logo

    I don't think anyone was saying YOU did it, I think a lot of people were just saying someone other than Activision did it.

    I think what most are saying that there's no proof of that being an official Activision wallpaper, thus you're pretty much ranting off for nothing.

    Yeah, still no proof Activision did it. Looks more like a fan wallpaper, given all those sources that, you know, aren't Activision. They do tons of stupid things. This doesn't look like one of them though.

    Yeah I may not like Activision, but thats clearly a fan-made wallpaper using the End War picture.

    My God, what a horrible creation. People seeing what they want? Thank God they tried to shy away from that. I know it pisses me off when I'm in an heroic raid, yet in the back of my head all I can think is 'some casual player is playing a heroic dungeon and not wiping.' -Vodkarn

    An official wallpaper by Activision would have their logo or even something belonging to them stamped onto it somewhere, I can almost guarantee that.

    I've poked around and one blog that has the endwar picture with the layer tint and the MW3 logo on it also has a lot of other community created stuff.

    It's not Activisions.
