Well you do have to admit though in Real Life Kill/Death ratio has to be a big concern...as it better be #/0
Other than that yes you are right...running around like Usain Bolt with a subM and a throwing knife doesn't really work outside of COD...

Its probably not about first-person shooters....... its more likely to be about terrorists and criminals communicating and planning over Xbox live headsets. There have been a few articles about this being used as a communication medium recently.
