If you were watching last Thursday's Early Show on CBS, you witnessed Michael Phelps's nerdly joy rise beneath that olympian facade when he was handed over the "first" copy of Activison's upcoming FPS, Call of Duty: World At War, for the Playstation 3.
Well, it turns out it wasn't actually the first copy, as developer Treyarch stated on their blog:
"As it turns out, Michael Phelps is a big Call of Duty fan, so we wanted to give him the first copy of CoD:WW. It’s well deserved Michael!...Now what you didn’t see is the “I O U” card that was contained within =D… Yes, unfortunately the game isn’t quite finished yet, but it’s close. We’ll be sending Michael the first disc off the production line though later this year, we promise!"
Better keep your promise, 'cause we know Mr. Phelps will be waiting for it while he shines his eight gold medals. Call of Duty: World At War, published by Activision, will be out this November for the PS3, 360, Nintendo Wii, DS and PC platforms.
