If you don't mind the routine of either releasing 'compilation' packs, or..

Activision bringing huge hit to our white wonder waggle box

Those of you who've dabbled in a spot of other console gaming over the past few years may have tried a somewhat unheard-of game known as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.
