Did Call of Duty’s YouTube Streaming Break Already?

As probably all gamers know, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 releases on 11/13/2012. Here in America, that’s tomorrow; elsewhere in the world, that’s today.

Live Streaming and CODcasting in Call of Duty

Today at GamesCom, Treyarch streamed a demo of Call of Duty: Black Ops II that highlighted multiplayer. I didn’t care.
