GGG writes about why the news of Call of Duty Advanced Warfare having substantial less pre-ordes than its predecessors could be a good sign for where the industry is moving, at least for fans.
once people found out what the CO-OP mode was, they canceled pre-orders lol. Me and many other's freaking hate Survival mode! ik I was looking for something better.
While I liked what I saw of the multiplayer, after the co-op reveal all of the momentum they had built up with me dwindled. Part of what makes the Treyarch package so appealing, and worth the sixty dollars, is you are getting three entirely different tiers with their games. This, just is not good enough for me.
Who DARES to give me a disagree?!?! SHOW YOURSELF COWARD!!! haha
Good luck chasing those Stealth Disagrees. ;) Few people want a mature discussion about different views. Much easier to click and move on.
@SteamPowered NO! I demand answers. I will not be disrespected by someone saying they disagree with something I have said. /parody
At least Aliens blows away the bland survival mode.
Its hard to know with pre-orders is this just pre-orders at a retail store? You can pre-order on PS4 and x box 1 have they been given the data to confirm pre-orders are down everywhere?
I completely passed on Ghosts. I'll definitely be giving AW a go though. I have bothered preordering yet though, as there really hasn't been much of a reason to.
I think gamers are hesitant due to issues like Resolutiongate as well as all the delays we have seen this year. Personally, I wouldnt pre-order a game, seems like too much of a gamble. I can patiently wait for the midnight prior and DL it.
I am sure there will be no shortage of COD copies in every store imaginable, hence the low pre-orders.
Could also be that people are buying digital more this year
Good point especially the next gen versions in addition to pc players.
That's not a good thing and what the hell is Activision going to do about it. They best worry about their true money maker and let that POS game that's out now fall. Activision Best get making sure Advance Warfare is ready and great out the gate.
I didnt like Black Ops 2's chaotic map design then Ghost looked like the extreme opposite. It's like the developers are lacking the perfect balance that some of the earlier games' maps had. I'll wait and see if advance warefare is worth it. I completely passed on Ghost. Also did they ever deliver on their promise on dedicated servers? Maybe Activision should stop lying to their fan base.
Companies should try to make creative games either way. CoD selling well shouldn't stop the other companies to make new and good games. It's the fault of the companies if they just try to copy CoD.
Either people are smartening up and realizing call of duty sucks or they realize preordering a game is a stupid idea unless its a super niche game a store will get 1 or 2 copies and never carry again.
Funny I skipped the last 3 COD games and this is the first one I am excited for in a long time?
Huge selling games like COD & Fifa are better being bought at the supermarket that has the best deal which you find out in Thursday's papers the day before launch..Why pre-order & lose out.
I'm sure the decline is due to Ghosts. That game was just such a huge step backwards, and Infinity Ward should be ashamed. A lot of the hardcore CoD fans we're not a fan of it. Hell, I've been playing CoD since 2005, and I honestly enjoyed Ghosts to an extent. I'm eagerly awaiting this CoD, as it reminds me of Black Ops 2 and that CoD was my favorite. But I'm sure AW will blow it out of the water.
