The most anticipated video game of the year has made its way to and from the shelves.  That’s right, girls, say goodbye to your boyfriends; you won’t exist until Christmas (if you’re lucky).

Vince Zampella, CEO of Call of Duty’s developer, Infinity Ward, stated, “From day one the goal was to bring our fans around the world the most riveting and authentic experience we’ve ever created in Modern Warfare 2“.  And it seems they won’t be disappointed.

CNNMoney.com reports more than 10,000 retailers opened their doors at midnight to cater to eager gamers.  So if you are just headed to Hastings, don’t bother.  You probably won’t find a single copy of the newest COD on their shelves.
