After the success of CoD4, no doubt about it really.
But, first I need to see how the system works when the host leaves.
If its bad as before, I'll just stick with Cod4.. no need to upgrade :(

They have host migration now.

If a host leaves, all players will see a brief (few seconds) "black" screen, the player with the best connection will then become host and the game continues as it left off.

dude that sounds awesome.
Do positions reset like in uncharted 2 or do they start off from where they were?
I hated how you had to goto the lobby and crap in CoD4

"has the potential to be the biggest-selling game ever,"

i don't think it will be the best selling game but will be the best selling FPS game.

Super Mario Bros and Tetris are both hoovering around 40+ million, it isnt going to beat that, but more than likely the biggest selling game of the last few generations.

Well Wii Sports has topped 50 million recently.... and New Super Mario Bros is approaching 20 million.... so if MW2 is going to be the biggest it has a long way to go.

Good point, forgot about Wii Sports, although that's mostly down to the bundles. To be honest I forgot largely about all the Nintendo games, they've pretty much all sold like crazy.

Oh man I knew it ever since I was playing the First Call of Duty on PC, It was the best FPS out. Sorry but nothing has beaten it on multiplayer or single player story mode it gets better every year and trust me I have played a lot of COD, it will always be teh win!

I agree with the MP mode.. but the single player modes have always been.. unappreciated by me. I didnt like em at all
