upcoming new gen is obviously taking it's effect

I don't see why this is so hard to understand that there are people waiting for the Next gen release.

COD was still able to extract $1 billion from the human race... this is unacceptable.

TomShoe1655d ago

The fact that it's an ugly game and not nearly as fun as Blops 2 doesn't help.

Actually them selling $1 billion wasn't exactly true.
They SOLD IN $1 billion (which means thats how many units were sold to retailers)
The SELL THROUGH was less than COD:BO2( Which was actually sold to consumers)

thats what ive been saying's obvious people are buying the next gen versions

bestofthebest1656d ago

yea i think 50% are waiting for the next gen version

Could be C.O.D. fatigue.
I don't think the sales numbers have anything to do with how bad the game is.

It hasn't mattered how bad it was in the past.

I bought BO2, and i'm not buying ghosts because of the reviews. I'm included in those %50 numbers. If there are more like me, then that %50 is not going to be recouped on the new systems.

Been waiting on my copy for the release of the PS4. I'm sure that is not uncommon.

Wikkid6661655d ago

I bought the combo pack for $70...

Probably, but launch buyers tend to be more aware so that could be a problem for COD. Those are the customers most likely to know that there isn't much of a reason to buy a slightly improved game on consoles with a lower install base.

how bad will be determined when when we get actual numbers that include sales from Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4, Wii U & PC. but i think it safe to say that there will be a another dip in sales when compared to black ops 2. it's inevitable, call of duty has been continuously losing market share since MW3.

Even though this has a lot to do with next gen consoles, I still don't believe overall sales will be as strong as previous cod's. There just hasn't been a lot of excitement for it this year. In fact, I don't know anyone who even bought it where I live.

its because of next gen consoles
