Kanye West to headline Call of Duty XP - yay?

Kanye West to headline Call of Duty XP - yay?

Activision is pulling out all the stops for its Call of Duty XP event, including the ego-tastic Kanye West. Is the shark jumped yet?

We spotted this yesterday, but in all honesty it seemed more of a joke than a real announcement, and we let it slide. However, with the official release now sitting in our inbox, it seems all too odd and real - Kanye West, hater of country music singer-songwriters and fan of odd eye-wear, is headlining the upcoming Call of Duty XP mega-event.

So, uh, yeah.

 

“We’re pulling out all the stops,” said Eric Hirshberg, Activision Publishing CEO in today's breathless release. “We promised our attendees and fans around the world a once-in-a-lifetime experience for the first Call of Duty XP, so we’re thrilled to have Kanye on board. Everything about XP will be as epic as the games themselves.  Whether you’re competing for one of the open slots in the $1 million tournament, playing Modern Warfare 3 for the first time, dodging paintballs in a spectacular life-size recreation of Modern Warfare 2’s Scrapyard level or just mingling with developers and fellow gamers, Call of Duty XP is a celebration of one of the greatest games in the world.  So what better way to top it off with one of the greatest artists in the world?”

What better way, indeed?
