Modern Warfare 3 was the first title on show at Microsoft's E3 press conference, with Microsoft seemingly attempting once again to convince the world that Call of Duty is an Xbox exclusive. We saw some live gameplay -- with an apparently disconnecting controller a few seconds in just to make sure we knew it really was "live" -- including a lot of underwater action and a dramatic speedboat chase.

The main thing from the Modern Warfare 3 demo, though, was the official absolutely positive confirmation of the game's release date. Watch for it on store shelves on November 8.
