"But will the same hold true for this time next year?"

Even though there is no real innovation in the COD series, people need to understand its the only real 60fps shooter people do have on console.

Since console gamer's don't have another choice for a 60fps shooters, sure they have Rage and maybe another 1-2 titles. However none of them provide a real MP experience with 9 v 9.

Hence when you put all that together:
1. 9 vs 9 MP (sure it may not be much, but it doesnt require much to impress the console crowd anyways).

2. Smooth 60fps, Like i mentioned above its the only choice console gamers do have for a 60fps experience, sure most of them probably dont understand what 60fps is, however they can see COD is smoother than the other games they play and since no other MP shooter on console does the same COD has hit a sweet spot.

A lot of people on N4G really dont understand this. They keep complaining, why they wont upgrade the engine and improve the graphics. Well the reason is obvious..

Activision knows Console gamer's.. Dont care about graphics. For them its better to keep poor graphics so they can keep the 60 fps handle.

In my view, 60fps isn't a big enough USP. There are a good number of first-person shooters out there running at 30/40fps that trump CoD in terms of enjoyment and depth.

The "but our game runs at 60fps" statements just don't cut the mustard anymore - and the fact Treyarch has gone out of its way to innovate and better the franchise with Black Ops 2 proves it.
