[UPDATE] IGN’s Modern Warfare 2 score mistakenly released or possibly leaked online

Update: IGN has just confirmed that it is indeed a fake.

Original: In what appears to be a legitimate screenshot of IGN’s front page has popped up online, featuring a review for Modern Warfare 2.

While we can’t be too sure these days, what with photo doctoring software in everyone’s hands, someone posted a shot of it over on the PlayStation forums, and claims that the offending page was hastily removed from IGN.

If real, and just a posting mistake on someone’s, it looks as though the site gave it a 9.5/10.

    What an astonishing coincidence that a site might accidentally leak their score for the most talked about and anticipated game of the year! No doubt they’ll get loads of coverage and a flood of people rushing to their site the moment the review is genuinely put on display.

    Meh.

    I highly doubt someone is gonna photoshop some like that.

    Nothing to gain, nothing to lose either.

    Real for me tbh.

    bdh, you’re not going to buy this game because you’re upset that it confirms that console gaming is more lucrative than PC gaming, and that’s about it.

    I’m going to help arrange for a console related prize for you when you inevitably win the (deranged) Fanboy of the Year award BDH. We’ll just need a camera man there when it’s delivered to see the fireworks. :D

    Uncharted 2 is only 9.0- you take off 0.5 for any console exclusive.

    Modern Warfare 2 for the 360.

    I say fake.

    IGN’s score postings don’t look like that, and even if they did, they wouldn’t post a review score next to a “preview” article.

    How is the competition judged? Most pointless irrelevant links posted in comments?

    I can’t believe IGN is still as slow as it was the last time I visited it years ago. :)
