Activision just announced the musical headliner for Call of Duty XP, the company's CoD themed fan-fest. It's going to be, get this, Kanye West! The controversial Mr. West hasn't publicly performed since the release of Watch the Throne, his most recent album. He goes on during the final night of XP on Saturday.
All XP ticket-holders are guaranteed a spot at this blockbuster closing night performance, and I don't think anyone will want to miss it. No matter how you feel about him or his music, Kanye is an interesting, charismatic performer.
But this got me thinking: You guys know the "crowd" of CoD players; what do you think reaction to Kanye's inclusion at the show will be? If gamers come out to the show for the zipline, the paintball, or the big prizes for multiplayer, I wonder how they're going to greet Mr. West when he takes the stage?
