Modern Warfare 2 to Feature Cameo by 50 Cent

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 62 comments

It's Fifty!

50 Cent is no stranger to video games, after all, he has starred in two of his own. He'll be back this fall in what will surely be one of the biggest titles of the year in Modern Warfare 2.

50 Cent visited Infinity Ward, developer to Modern Warfare, and it was later revealed that the rapper will be "one of the squad voices in Multiplayer / Spec Ops," and it seems he won't be the only one.

Robert Bowling, Infinity Ward's director of communications, told Kotaku that 50 Cent is just one of the many casual voice cameos that'll appear in Modern Warfare 2.

Any guesses at who would be the other ones? My bets are on Carrot Top.

    Can we get some real heros from Iraq/Afghanistan to voice this instead of wana-be gangsters?

    man that was close, it's just voice 'acting'! for a second i thought they meant he was gonna be featured in the game as a character......that would have killed it for sure.

    mlopinto2k1Um, do you fucktards realize that you are bashing a multi-million dollar icon? I smell the faint odor of assholes and jealousy. Besides, he's a pretty good actor. Get over it.


    I personally hate the man and everything he stands for. Woo, a wannabe criminal who can put up a generic beat with lyrics an 8 year old could write, with excessive use of cussing, and derogatory terms, that helps re-enforce stereotypes, embarrasses his entire race, while re-enforcing negativity. I hear 50 cent, and the first thing I think is "fuck that asshole." I guess "Icon" doesn't mean much nowadays. He's good at marketing TRASH.

    If they are using 50 already, I guess no harm done really, its just a little annoying. I prefer giving no-name actors a little break rather than enlisting pieces of shit nobody likes.

    People will complain about anything, IW is using someone's voice who they dislike and now the game is awful. The game is going to be awesome and I bet that if they had not mentioned this you wouldnt have had two thoughts about who's voices are being used in game.

    hovaucf: if it's anything like the annoying voices in BF2.. they'll just disable it anyway... that constant chatter annoyed the hell out of me... tho i'm the type that disables all music and extraneous noises anyway... just the noise that's pertinent to the battle. can't hear someone creeping up on me with some douche yelling, 'give in to the swarm!' ;)

    oh.. and come on.. how many of you haters wouldn't have welcomed a chance to send 50 to the digital grave repeatedly? i would have relished in finding new and more horrific ways of dismembering him!

    Woopy doo. Everyone has to make a fuss about a famous rapper doing a professional voice acting job.

    I was hoping he would have an actual character that would pop out at one point of the game and you blow his ass away with a grenade launcher. That would be one sweet easter egg.

    "50 Cent is just one of the many casual VOICE cameos." shortest article ever and all you read was the title.

    hehe... his monetary worth makes him something more than normal? hell, paris hilton is worth far more and i doubt anyone would argue that she's a 'good actor' or much of anything else other than a spoiled brat.

    Do we care? Can anyone out there actually recognise the 'Voice Of 50 Cent'? Unless they have a flashing neon '50 Cent Now Speaking' banner everytime his voice is used i'm not going to have a clue.

    You can't compare 50 cent and Paris...thats just not right. He may acutally be richer than Paris...but even so i admire the fact that he is a smart business man. He is making money in so many other avenues that many rappers ignore. If you read about him a some you might be surprised at how smart he really is...

    Before someone dings my comment, no i'm not a fan of 50 and not defending him or anything. I just know some facts about him...
