CoD: Black Ops London launch - Pics

Monster FPS goes on sale with a bang...

Last night CVG (and most of the minor celeb faces in The Sun) attended the UK Call of Duty: Black Ops launch event. It was good.

Minor celebs including Billy from EastEnders and Goldie descended on London's Battersea Power Station to drink sweet cocktails and stare at the 20ft Xbox 360 logos projected on the side of the crumbling monument.


Festivities included an on-stage demo by Treyarch developers, a performance by rapper and Black Ops fan Tinie Tempah and CVG's Tom Pakinkis embarrassing himself in front of Keisha from Sugar Babes.

Perhaps the highlight of the evening, however, was a Deathmatch session between various sports stars at launch events across Europe. London's combatant, Manchester City's Wayne Bridge took to the stage to a smattering of boos (mustn't be many Mancs in London on a Monday)

"I don't get to play it much," said the defender, before ensuring he shot, stabbed and grenade-d the flump out of his opponents, including Dutch legend Clarence Seedorf. Presenter George Lamb retorted: "Bollocks, you play this five hours a day!" (We've got a video of this going up shortly).

Having left Battersea sans any complimentary copies of the game, the CVG team finished the night like you lot - bothering the nearest 24-hour Tesco's customer service to go round the back and get us one.
