Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Pre-Sale Surpasses 1.6 Million

Activision is banking on Modern Warfare 2 to sell a lot of copies. Well, if the recent pre-order stats are correct, Activision could be looking at selling more than 2 million copies on the first day. The game has been pre-ordered on the Xbox 360 1.6 million times, and a little less than 600,000 times for the PS3.

mw2 hater and boycotters,EAT THIS

muddygamesite2477d ago

You shouldn't be so excited that MW2 is selling so well. It will encourage Activision to treat the gaming SHEEP however they like. Ah well, so is life.

lol at the statement.
I don't hate MW2. It will be solid game but I played cod4 and cod5, to me it's more or less same material. Of course, I am not supporting their price hike. Not even buying used copy. I will wait for battlefield(march).Until then, I will be playing, demon's souls, uncharted2, forza2, assassins creed2, flashpoint2, possibly MAG and many others. In fact, I don't even know if I will be able to play all the good games that are coming out.

In reality, You will be eating their price hike and trail begins. And before you even know it, we will all be eating it as well.
Just like Halo ODST :D and Personally, I will be partially eating L4D2 or I could be wrong.

goes to play Demon's Souls

What are you talking about Sheep? You people know in America the price didn't move at all, it was $60 from day one and is still $60. 1.6 million 360 pre-orders are JUST from America, where the price didn't get raised. So, how does that make anyone a sheep?

BUt i guess it helps with shortages and stuff.

Alot of people keep treating the Activision situation like an isolated event! You gotta keep in mind that all of these companies want to try to get away with whatever they can. It's just that Activision was actually stupid enough to make their opinions known.

You ever hear that phrase, "You give someone an inch, they take a yard!"... Same thing applies to all companies. The goal of any company is to make as much money as possible. You want to try to keep the consumer happy, but at the same time you gotta pull a few tricks if you can. Any company who doesn't follow this model runs into financial trouble... and usually end up closing up shop.

Look at McDonalds for example... I can go to McD's and get 2 Double Quarter pounders and eat them both before I feel full. On the other hand, I can go to Culver's and get 1 double cheese burger and feel full. That's strange considering that 2 Culvers meat patties are about the size of 1 McD's quarter pound meat patty. Reason being that McD's puts High Fructose corn syrup in most of their food, which tricks your system into feeling hungry even after you've eaten alot.

Oops, got off topic... i'll leave it at that!

Have you fallen on your head this is Modern Warfare 2

GamerPS3602477d ago

I am not mad. It is just sad that we gamer can't stick together for our benefits.

N2NOther2477d ago

How does not getting a game that I want to play benefit me? You're the one with the problem. I don't know you so just because we like games doesn't mean I'm going to suffer because of that common interest.

GamerPS3602476d ago

Do whatever you want to dude. I don't really care. Have fun.

I am just type of guy who stands up for dignity. So, no buy for me, that's all.

N2NOther2476d ago

How is it undignified to buy what you want. Mind you, if you don't feel like you're going to get your money's worth then that's fine, but considering the fact that I STILL play COD 4 two years later means that I definitely got my money's worth and then some. So I could not care less if Activision raised the price a few dollars. Do you not see movies that play at IMAX either because the price is about $6 more than a regular movie?
