The Gold Box spotlight deal of the day over at Amazon today is Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 for Xbox 360, PS3, or PC for only $39.99 each (that’s 33% off the list price of $59.99).
This sequel to Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare sold almost 5 million copies in its first day of release back in November, so chances are, most of you who wanted it already own it, but if you were holding out for a sale — the day is here! But, this sale is only for today while supplies last, so grab it while you can before it sells out.
From what I’ve been told, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 combines a thrilling single player story with some very fine cooperative segments to make one of the best multiplayer games ever. This sequel takes place five years after the original Modern Warfare (all other Call of Duty games take place in a World War II setting), and sees you filling the shoes of multiple different characters as they fight in battles all over the world.
