Modern Warfare 3 premiere event set for May 23

We don't know about you, but we've just about had it with these mysterious viral campaigns. Take this, for example: A post on the Modern Warfare 3 Facebook page announces the game's world premiere is set for May 23 during "game 4 of the Western Conference Finals on ESPN."

The last conference meeting in the west? That sounds rather ominous. What is that code for? And why game 4? We thought they're showing off Modern Warfare 3? Where is ESPN, anyway? Is that short for España or something?

Please, Activision, we want to see your game -- just tell us how! As it stands, we're headed to the western part of Spain and looking for signs of dudes playing games together for the fourth and final time. Wish us luck.

[Thanks, H-F]
