Given a sneak peak of the game’s opening scenes attendees of the event hosted by TV and radio personality George Lamb were then invited to play sample levels of the graphically impressive title on a fleet of Xbox 360 consoles, seemingly confirming Xbox’s Director of Entertainment and Marketing, Stephen McGill’s claims that the Microsoft console is the best for playing the new CoD game.

Live video links to queues of fans around the world were interspersed with celebrity battles that  saw Wayne Bridge defeated by AC Millan’s Clarence Seedorf. “I was really nervous playing up on stage. I’m not used to being the centre of attention like that. When you play football you’re in a team and it’s different.” said the Manchester City defender.
