Just saw the teaser during the 3rd/4th quarter commercial break in the DAL/OKC game.

May 23rd I believe was the date, game 4 of this series.

Target audience + grabbing new players. Modern Warfare is at a point where anyone remotely involved in non-casual gaming has heard of it. They don't gain as much selling to the hardcore crowd as they do grabbing new players.

You're right to question their decision. Australian Open would have been a better idea.

I think he was joking. The battlefield 3 commercial (with actual footage) debuted during the first round of the NBA playoffs.

Spending millions of dollars showing a trailer 7 months after a game's release is so stupid only EA would do it.

Well if they could they would show it at the same time during an EPL game too, I'm sure they'll show it on tv in Europe too but NBA playoffs and CoD has a ton of cross-over, its all guys at work talk about.

Erm... Have no idea. TV is not a very popular over here. But I believe soccer is nine times more popular than basketball in Europe, isn't it?

Considering that MW2 was released in 2009, debuting a teaser a full seven months after release would seem a bit counteractive :)

That was what they showed tonight. The Am3rica teaser that you can find in the current MW3 hype thread.

Okay well since that's all they showed in a teaser than maybe they will actually show something significant on the night of the finals.

I think that's the thing... they will probably show some cut-scenes like with Black Ops and maybe a very short glimpse of the multiplayer (seeing how that's what sells the most), then cut to black and have the MW3 logo show up, and everybody gets hyped lol....

The gameplay trailers to Modern Warfare 2 and Black Ops debuted during the NBA playoffs. It's just a trend in the entire series now.
