Modern Warfare 2 is GameStop's most pre-ordered game ever

Some may have been up in arms about arguably disturbing material and unarguably juvenile advertising in and for Modern Warfare 2, but it doesn't seem to be showing any signs of stifling anticipation for the game. In fact, GameStop told Game Hunters that Infinity Ward's baby is the most pre-ordered title in the company's history. Like ... ever. GameStop VP Tony Bartel told the site, "As of today, the number of pre-order reservations we've taken for the game is the highest for any title we've ever sold in our 6,200 store network."

So feel free to grouse all you want, but unless Activision replaces the FPS gameplay with first-person putting puppies into a wood chipper and renames it Osama bin Laden Pushes Jesus Christ Down a Flight of Stairs Made of Baby Skulls, we're not sure there's any amount of controversy that's going to slow Modern Warfare 2 down.

The story is too old to be commented.

This is because it is also the most over-hyped game ever too

never played call of duty 4, huh?

NateNater3325d ago

Yea actually I own it. So what?

For something to be "over-hyped," it cannot match its expectations.

No one doubts that it cannot match its hype except you.

Got this game off Amazon. Should arrive Nov. 10 and once it ships I get $20 towards Amazon video games. Any one who knows more about this correct me if I'm wrong please, but that's a great deal on a great game.

I pre-ordered at Best Buy and will pick up after work next Tuesday.

From everything I've seen and heard, this game will be better than CoD4MW. I can't wait to play this.

Over 1.7 mill. copys, nice number and I paid for the Prestige Edition, over 217 dollars spent at GameStop for preorder games for this month.
