The Canadian Xbox Series X Copies Of Modern Warfare 2 Say “Best-Selling On PlayStation”

Well, the misprint isn't anything wrong, per se.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is the latest installment in the Call of Duty franchise, coming in as a direct sequel to the 2019-released Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, which itself is a reboot of the original Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. Pretty confusing, right? Well, it is what it is.  

The 2022 shooter has had the biggest Call of Duty launch on Steam in recent times, with the number of concurrent players topping 238,000.

From marking the arrival of real-life footballer skins in the game to rumors of a campaign DLC making landfall for Modern Warfare 2 sometime in 2023, the title has garnered its fair share of success early on.

The Rundown: 

  • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 has just been released on October 28, 2022, for modern-day consoles and platforms, such as Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC via Steam.
  • Some copies of the game being sold in Canada appear to come with a misprint. On the backside of the cover, the text on the top reads, “La Franchise La Plus Vendue Sur PlayStation.” When translated from French to English, the text says, “Best-Selling Franchise on PlayStation.” 
  • Initially a mere misprint, many are referring to these error-apparent Modern Warfare 2 units as rather collectible items.  

As Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 gets pushed out into the world thanks to its recent release, one retailer in Canada apparently failed to get the memo. The back of the game’s physical unit says “Best-selling franchise on PlayStation” when translated to English from French.

The reveal comes from a Reddit user who managed to spot this unusual text on their copy of the game. According to the Redditor, the region in which they purchased the title is Canada, so fellow Canadians just might discover this eerie happening on their end as well.

Little misprint on Canadian copies of mw2 from XboxSeriesX

The individual on Reddit isn’t the only one who has taken their story online. Apparently, some Twitter users have also replied back with the same instance, thereby affirming that multiple Candian copies are presently appearing to look this way. 

Another person, who evidently claims to be a game store worker has conformed to the idea here, therefore making it a sure-fire case that several Canadian Modern Warfare 2 game copies have been hit with this misprint. 

While others are dismissing the situation as merely an error from the side of the publisher, some seem to think of these misprinted copies of the title as “collectibles,” ones that deserve a special place on your shelf at home. However, we don’t know what’s crazier. 

The fact that such a typo managed to grab a place on an Xbox Series X|S game or that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Burger King DLC skins are selling for $50 on eBay? Help us decide in the comments section down below.
