I have just discovered that Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 2 has cross game invite. I was playing resistance 2 when sand-man sent me a invite from CODMW2. Out of curiousity I tried joining from the messaging service whilst i was playing R2, and when i clicked join, the console asked me if I wanted to quit R2. I clicked yes and then it asked me to insert CODMW2 disk in and click ok, and when i did click ok it sent me into the matchmaking. There was no menus , it was heading straight for the lobby, with the message on screen telling me it was trying to join, but there was a problem at my end where the game crashes at this point. When sand-man tried it whilst he was in uncharted 2 and when he accepted my invite it worked for him. He went from uncharted 2 to CODMW2 with no problem the first time but other times there was problems like the game completely freezing and when you quit the game it reboots the whole system. It seems like there is a glitch in this cross game invite system or it could be a clitch with CODMW2 that needs fixing.
Also you accept to join a game invite from MW2 whilst your not playing any game from the XMB but that one also has a glitch where it gets to the lobby screen then crashes.
I really hope Sony or Infinity Ward fix this issue.
What gets me the most is that the cross game invite has probably been a feature of 3.0 update yet i don’t remember sony saying anything about it, when it was one of the most asked for features.
I guess we will have to see if other game developers in the future use this feature.
Thanks to sand-man for testing this out with me.

Try to get two hits in one when possible and switch to your second pistol instead of reloading your first pistol. The video below may help you more with this trophy.
|Plant the C4 in ‘Cliffhanger’ without alerting or injuring anyone in the blizzard. |
TIP – The guys you are forced to kill at the beginning of the level do not count for this trophy, but when you and Sargent split separate ways you cannot alert anyone or injure anybody but the Sargent can who is still helping you from a vantage point, when you land your cross-hairs on somebody, sarge will automatically kill them out front, when you get inside the fenced in area you will have to do some stealth moves around a few people, the video guide below will help you out more.
|Kill 7 chickens in under 10 seconds in ‘The Hornet’s Nest’. |
TIP – When you arrive at the market area in the “Hornets Nest” (the area with all the chickens in cages), find a big stack of cages of chickens and toss a grenade at them, than start shooting at nearby cages of chickens that are alive. The grenade should knock out quite a bit of chickens which helps you in kill amounts, if you don’t succeed, kill yourself and try that checkpoint again.

TIP – Play through every Special Ops mission and complete them all in “Regular” difficulty to get this trophy.
|Ten plus foot-mobiles|
|Kill at least 10 enemies with one Predator missile in Single Player or Special Ops. |
TIP – The simple way to get this is in the “Wolverines!” level in the single-player campaign. When you make it to defending the Burger Town restaurant there will be large groups of enemies rushing from many areas, press the right button to open up the predator missile interface and launch a missile at the center a large group of enemies, you should get it but if you don’t, no worry’s, you will have quite a few times to do this while you are defending Burger Town.
|Use a riot shield to beat down an enemy in Single Player or Special Ops. |
TIP – A quick and easy way to get this is by going into special ops and picking the Terminal level in the Delta Stage, choose “Regular” difficulty and launch the mission, when you start, get your gun, and walk out of the room, some guys to your left will come at you, kill them, now some guys with shields will start to come down the escalator, kill some of them, grab a shield, run up to someone, and beat them down with the shield by pressing down on the right analogue stick. If you don’t have access to this special ops mission, go in the mission select and choose “No Russian” or “Gulag”, choose “Recruit” difficulty and when you find a shield do what was said above.
|Kill 4 enemies with 4 shots during a slow-mo breach in Single Player or Special Ops. |
TIP – You get many good chances in the mission, “The Only Easy Day… Was Yesterday”. Before you are about to breach any door get out your secondary weapon (SCAR-H Silenced Thermal Sight). This is a powerful gun so shoot four guys in a row with one shot each. If you feel you didn’t get four one-hit kills in a breach, kill a poor hostage to try that checkpoint again. I got the trophy on the second breach in this mission.
|Some Like it Hot|
|Kill 6 enemies in a row using a thermal weapon in Single Player or Special Ops.|
TIP – Kill six people with a thermal weapon, a weapon with a thermal scope. You start off with a thermal weapon as your secondary in “The Only Easy Day… Was Yesterday”, shoot everyone you come in contact with including the breaches, after six kills, you should get this trophy. If you have the Echo Stage for Special Ops unlocked then you have access to thermal weapons when you first start both “High Explosive” and “Armor Piercing”. Play these on “Regular” difficulty to get this easily.
|Two Birds with One Stone|
|Kill 2 enemies with a single bullet in Single Player or Special Ops. |
TIP – A way to get this is on the single-player mission “Cliffhanger” when you are on the runway and snowmobiles are rushing towards you, shoot at the driver when the front of the snowmobile is facing you and is close to hitting you and the bullet should go through the driver and also hit the passenger, killing them both. If you had no luck, kill yourself and try it again until you get the trophy.
|The Road Less Traveled|
|Collect 22 enemy intel items. |
TIP – Find 22 enemy intel laptops in the single-player campaign. The video guides below will help you find the first 22.
|Leave No Stone Unturned|
|Collect 45 enemy intel items. |
TIP – Find all 45 enemy intel laptops in the single-player campaign. The video guides below show you how to get intel 22 – 45. for the first 22 intel laptop locations, look at the tip above.
|Kill 20 enemies in a row while driving a vehicle in Single Player or Special Ops. |
TIP – The easiest way to get this trophy is at the “Endgame” level ion “Recruit” difficulty n the single-player campaign since you have access to the boat right when you start, you have unlimited ammo while in the boat so just keep shooting at enemies and enemy boats until you get this trophy. When you finish the game you can always go back to this level in chapter select.
|The Harder They Fall|
|Kill 2 rappelling enemies in a row before they land on their feet in Single Player or Special Ops. |
TIP – Go into Special Ops Alpha Stage (unlocked already) and choose the “Suspension” mission. When you start the mission run on the right side of the bridge by the speed limit sign and you should see a few enemies rappelling off the right side of the bridge, shoot two in a row down before their feet get on the ground. If you didn’t get the trophy, simply restart the mission and do it again.
|Kill 5 enemies in a row using 5 different weapons or attachments in Single Player or Special Ops.|
TIP – In the mission “Team Player”, while you’re in the Humvee, shoot at least one enemy with the turret (1st kill), when you fall out of the Humvee rush in the building ahead of you on your right side and run to the stairs with your pistol wielded and shoot the guy coming down the stairs (2nd kill), quickly pick up the gun he dropped by switching it with your pistol as you won’t need it anymore. Now kill the guy at the top of the stairs coming towards you with your new gun (3rd kill). Switch to your primary and kill the next guy that runs towards you (4th kill). Get the AK-47 Grenadier at the top of the steps and shoot the next guy (5th kill). Now you should get this trophy but if you want to be sure the AK-47 also has a grenade launcher attached to it you can use. It’s recommended that you play this chapter on “Recruit” mode. The video guide below may help you out more if you’re having trouble.
|Look Ma Two Hands|
|Kill 10 enemies in a row using akimbo weapons in Single Player or Special Ops. |
TIP – Akimbo weapons are duel-wielding weapons. You will usually find these on the ground many times, usually in the form of pistols, run around and shoot people with them to get this trophy, It’s recommended to do it on “Recruit” mode for the single-player campaign on “Regular” mode for Special Ops since it’s easier that way.
|No Rest For the Wary|
|Knife an enemy without him ever knowing you were there in Single Player or Special Ops.|
TIP – A way to get this is available at all times, go into the Alpha Stage of Special Ops and choose “Evasion” on any difficulty (Regular difficulty recommended). When the mission is loaded, walk forward, you notice four guys ahead of you walking towards you, hid in some bushes and wait for them to walk past you, when they walk past you they will keep walking and eventually stop close to where you started the mission, walk behind an enemy without getting spotted and quickly knife him to get this trophy.
|Kill at least 3 enemies with a single shot from a grenade launcher in Single Player or Special Ops.|
TIP – A good place to get this trophy early-on is on the second mission in the single-player campaign, “Team Player”. At the start of the mission you’re told to kill enemies across the river with your grenade launcher. Crouch behind the rocks to stay safe, press your left button to equip the grenade launcher and shoot at the enemies across the river (preferably at the stairs they’re running down to the bank of the river. If you have only one round left for your grenade launcher and you haven’t gotten the trophy, kill yourself and try the process again.

Nolan North the voice of Nathan Drake was interviewed on the latest OPM UK podcast and stated he was interested in playing Nathan Drake in the movie, but says he understands Hollywood, and as of right now they are strongly going after Hugh Jackman who is known for playing Wolverine in the X-Men movies.
“I would love to do the movie, obviously I’d love to do it as Nathan Drake, but I’ve done film and television and I understand the reality of the business,” he went on to say,
“Jackman is who I’d like to see. I think the producers would like to see Jackman too, because he has that tough guy exterior, but there’s also a lot going on behind his eyes. A lot of emotion and sensitivity on that brusque exterior, and he has great comic timing. He’s a phenomenal actor.
“I just hope I get a part on the movie so I can work with Hugh.”
