Joel Taveras writes, "The biggest product launches always take place in the fall. And that stands true whether you’re talking video games or technology. This Friday Apple will be releasing the highly coveted iPhone 5 — their sixth generation phone that has already snagged 2 million pre-orders in its first 24 hours of pre-order availability.
Now, if there was one title to compare it to in the video game world, you need to look no further than the Call of Duty franchise. We’re not just talking about sales numbers relative to their respective industries here. We’re talking about the entire culture that surrounds it. I know, the iPhone is a piece of hardware and Call of Duty is a piece of software but, trust me, they’re much more similar than you think."
