Go ahead, open another browser (you wouldn't want to leave GR, would you?), and type in ModernWarfare3.com... It takes you to rival game website for Battlefield 3. Wait... that's definitely not supposed to be like that.

Is this EA pulling some hilarious shenanigans? Who knows. We did check the WhoIs domain information, and there are absolutely no links to EA or any of EA's partners. Meaning, it could just as well be a supportive fan pulling a fast one on Activision. Yeah, right.
