179w ago - An ongoing petition by hodsey77 and Facebook group is requesting a patch for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.
According to the petition, those with a particular type of red/green color blindness, to quote, "cannot tell friend from foe in the online matches, as their names appear in these colors, and the radar uses the colors too."
Infinity Ward's community manager fourzerotwo has acknowledged that he will bring up the concern to the team, as follows:
"Blue is actually already used for people in a Party while playing #MW2. I will be bringing up the color blind concern though."
Considering color blindness is relatively common, especially among males, it's surprising that it isn't tested for more regularly.

Downloadable content is set to include online map packs alongside missions for the successful Spec Ops.
Additionally, Infinity Ward recently released a small (non-downloadable) update for the console versions containing new gamemodes dubbed 3rd Person Team Tactical, Team Deathmatch Express, and Mosh Pit.
Here are their descriptions, to quote:
"3rd Person Team Tactical 4 vs 4 in the 3rd person perspective with mixed game types such as Domination, TDM, etc.

There is no official reason for the delay yet, although it is speculated that it is due to insufficient manufacturing output to have enough PC copies ready by November 10 to meet demand or that Infinity Ward wants to implement more stringent copy-protection to combat piracy.
In related news, Activision UK managing director Andrew Brown has defended the publisher's decision to price Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 at £55 RRP.
When Activision originally revealed the price, retailers warned of the effect that the increase would have on consumers, which is £5 more than other Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 titles on the market.
But Brown is confident that consumers will feel that they are getting a good deal with the content provided by Modern Warfare 2.
To quote from MCVUK: "At the end of the day, there is a spectrum of what people can afford and what people are prepared to spend. These things are key," said Brown.
"This is an industry where things cost a lot to develop...
