PC Modern Warfare 2 can't be played until Tuesday, even if you get it early

It looks like a few game retailers, mostly in the Northeastern section of the US, have gone ahead and broken the November 10 street date to sell copies of Modern Warfare 2. In fact one retailer claimed that they had gotten special permission from publisher Activision to sell their copies of the Infinity Ward first person shooter now because others had already done so.

Activision sent Big Download an official statement on the matter saying, "Activision has not given any retailer permission to sell Modern Warfare 2 prior to the Nov. 10 street date. The company fully supports the Nov.10 street date." In addition, Infinity Ward's community manager Robert Bowling has also "tweeted" that if you have already bought the PC version of the game from a retailer, "you can play it on 11.10.09." That means the game, which uses Steam, won't unlock for those players until the street date, unlike the PS3 and Xbox 360 version which can be played right away. People who pre-ordered the game via Steam won't be able to play the game until November 13.
