There was a minor faux pas with the packaging of the Xbox version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 in Canada.
On the back of the cover, the shooter is unceremoniously touted as a PlayStation bestseller.

At the top of the back cover is the following sentence in English: “The best-selling Franchise on Xbox.”
So far, so right. Directly below is the same sentence in French, but with PlayStation instead of Xbox at the end.

Sony fears that the takeover of the publisher and thus also the Call of Duty series will have disadvantages for its platform. Meanwhile, Microsoft says it wants to keep the series on the PlayStation for a few more years after the takeover.
