Sell your Modern Warfare 2 Now

Once Black Ops hits, what'll happen to those 4 million copies of Modern Warfare 2? (Call of Duty: Black Ops, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Culture, Industry)

I sold it 2 months after launch.
vhero  +   1948d ago
Hahaha I sold mine 1 month after weirdly bought for £25 from morrisons and got £32 on trade so made £7 :). But yeah it was massively disappointing.
DirtyLary  +   1947d ago
Selling your games back to gamestop for a fraction of their value is such an idiot move. GS thanks you.
scar-leg  +   1947d ago
Gamestop doesn't even exist in the UK. So shutup.
DirtyLary  +   1947d ago
UK is irrelevant. It's the principle of selling a game and ripping yourself off.

I took a head start on getting rid of my never buying one.

Bought mine for 40$ and kept it for 4 months and then traded it in to Amazon for 35$. 5$ for 4 months rental is a pretty good deal imo.
BakedGoods  +   1947d ago
People who think trading is dumb simply don't understand the economics behind it.

It has nothing to do with ripping yourself off and everything to do with maximizing your utility from gaming.

wsoutlaw87  +   1947d ago
keeping a game you will never play again is ripping your self off. The best way is to sell it on amazon or something like that not gamestop. I just sold mine for 33$ last week
TengkuAmir10  +   1947d ago
I wanna sell my copy too! I haven't played it for 6 months now but whenever I go to game shops and ask for a trade-in, they won't give me cash but they'd trade games instead. I brought 6 games to them and they'd only trade it for ONE brand new game. So I told them to fuck off. Any tips?
Commander_TK  +   1947d ago
I borrowed it
It was fun, but it has a lot of problems that need to be fixed

tinybigman  +   1948d ago
sold mine 3 months after
iistuii  +   1948d ago
Yeah right
If everyone who comes on here has traded it in a month after launch, then how is it still the most played game online on both consoles you utter tools.
acky1  +   1948d ago
wow, angry much? why would people lie about something so trivial. I sold mine a month or so after I bought it cos I got all the trophys and realised the online was just infuriating...not fun. Tons of people have kept it tho, its not hard to understand that some people sold theirs but lots of people kept theirs.

tinybigman  +   1948d ago
wow itstuii
you are a angry person arent you. once i beat the single player mode i traded it in about 3 months after since i didnt really care about the online mode. the only thing i did was play a couple of the co-op missions after that traded in towards another game.

just because others are still playing it doesnt mean i am. oh yea who the hell you calling tool you tool?

lol wow...
acky1 and tinybigman chill out all he said was utter tools and you guys act like hes punched your mom in the womb and said "fuck your babies!" jeeze he doesn't even seem that angry but yet thats the first thing you guys mention.. personal attack?
mrcash  +   1948d ago
because the people here are the minority, we all just like to think we make up most of the gamers.
acky1  +   1948d ago
I'm sorry kunit22c but I don't see how pulling someone up for attacking someone with the words 'utter tool' is wrong? Maybe you don't like standing up for people or maybe you think it's ok to abuse people, but I don't.

Whoever agrees with your and stu's comment and disagrees with mine and tinybigman's comment are warped.

tinybigman  +   1947d ago
so kunit
why did he bother to reply under my name? he could have done that to someone else. like i said i only played CoD for the single player as im not that big an online fan. so i traded my game in after 3 months.

i see the word tool and it sounds like an attack.

It's quite simple really. N4G doesn't have a userbase of 4 million.

If you cannot comprehend that, I pity you.
wsoutlaw87  +   1947d ago
you know if you sell yours to someone there are still the same amount of people who own the game.
Kon_Artist  +   1947d ago
i sold mine a few months after launch 2
:) im done with call of duty.

call of duty 4 was the best 1 and thats why i still play it every now and then
kparks  +   1947d ago
IM WITH iistuii
u people are idiots i guess im the only one on here who didnt trade it in.. there is no way everyone in this whole comment section traded in the game not saying the game is great and not saying everyone or even the people im replying did not trade it in i can understand just playing the story. but look at all these ppl that say they have traded it in its BS kids jumping on the hate bandwagon
BISHOP-BRASIL  +   1947d ago
Earlier this year Sony said SOCOM Confrontatio was the game being most played online on PSN, it even had an article here in N4G.

I don't know about 360 and PC but I wouldn't be surprised if MW2 isn't top in both too.

Maybe it sold greatly but the ammount of time people spended on MW2 multiplayer is nothing but a shadow of COD4 success.
TheGameFoxJTV  +   1948d ago
Sold mine the day after launch. One day of playing was enough to convince me to go back to CoD4, and BC2.
HungPHATx  +   1948d ago
I sold it 2 weeks after launched and never looked back ! Went back to COD 4 and World at War
xino  +   1947d ago
sold the piece of sh*
I sold mine after I finished Storymode.
-Ikon-  +   1947d ago
Sold mine 9 days after release. Was really funny, for a week me and my friend destroyed everyone. Got bored quick, realized how cheap it was to own every one.
sbizarre  +   1947d ago
I am keeping mine, I really enjoyed mw2 :) I like having a collection of games even when you don't play them much anymore. I still have my old n64 and nes games, on the rare occasion I play them and remember the old times and hours of enjoyment I had. :D

didnt have to sell mine because i dont buy horrible games
PopEmUp  +   1947d ago
I trade the game the next day I brought it, best decision ever
maawdawg  +   1947d ago
I'm still sitting on a dev team autographed PC copy that I got as a gift for my birthday. I should definitely sell it. If I kept a video game item collection it would be one thing but it is just sitting around the house.

I probably should have unloaded it when IW broke up as there definitely won't be any more of them made and that was probably the height of interest for it.

Listen...CoD4 MW is still played by thousands of people....even after WoW and MW2 have been released. If you like your MW2 keep it...the games are all so similar it'll just feel like extra levels anyway.

wont be bargain bing until new one is released there like FIFA games they never go bargain bin until the new one is released.
mikepmcc  +   1948d ago
I definitely won't be in the bargain bin...cod4 is still like forty bucks new and that came out in 07.

AKissFromDaddy  +   1948d ago
I believe
No COD from 4 and beyond will be obsolete because each one plays differently. Next, if anyone does commentaries or just records footage, that is another incentive to keep those games. However, the author still has a valid opinion for gamers that move from game to game, never looking back.

No thnx i got the hardened edition and im keeping it.
GilIsMunny  +   1948d ago
scar20  +   1948d ago
Umm maybe cuz i like da game and i got much more than it was worth.I dont know why everyone said mw2 is the worst modern warfare its not the games fault blame the players who hacked it and ruined the online.
visualb  +   1948d ago
loved COD1,2,4

MW2 is NOT a cod, its...a different game

Unreal Tournament with realistic setting.

you may like it, but its def the worst MW out of the 2. yes people ruined it, but hey, a game is based on its community right?

sh!t community + no support = sh!t experience
PopEmUp  +   1947d ago
you say
it not the game fault, right? explain to me the 4hr single mode?
Motorola  +   1948d ago
i got hardened edition too. COD classic is terrible. the steel book looks nice but I wish they put more focus into the game than the shiny cover art
visualb  +   1948d ago
e but I wish they put more focus into the game than the shiny cover art
too bad the cover art will contribute more to sales than the game...
Magnus  +   1948d ago
I traded mine in a month after launch and don't regret it. Lets just hope Treyarch did alot of beta tests for this new COD game cause if its the same as MW2 its going to be traded in aswell.
PhantomT1412  +   1948d ago
Didn't buy it in the first place.
RedDead  +   1947d ago
lucky you
KillerPwned  +   1948d ago much as i hate MW2 i will keep it i like to keep the games i buy and build up a collection. Every now and then i go back and play a little bit of MW2.
Dysmorphic  +   1948d ago
Single-player is a blast, co-op is solid and the multiplayer still addictive so... no thanks.
NewsForMe  +   1948d ago
The multiplayer is addictive in the same sense a batch of bad heroin is.
meatnormous  +   1947d ago
Is there such a thing as good heroin?
redDevil87  +   1948d ago
I never bought the POS lol
Jls1  +   1948d ago
Sold mine when gamestop offered 40 for it and got ff13
Urrakia34  +   1948d ago
Persuade me Treyarch
Only things that interest me about Black Ops are the new game modes and COD points. The rest? Rehashed content
latex  +   1948d ago
sold both of mine ps3 and 360 week after launch.
i too was massively disappointing.

note sure to even bother with black ops
zackacloud  +   1948d ago
this why I saw these days too many new level people ??

whatever who said that i will buy (Call Of Milk : Black Cows)

dev just 7 months mybe they want to enter into geniss record
Dellis  +   1948d ago
Already sold it and got Enslaved
TheLastGuardian  +   1948d ago
I only rented MW2.
Irnbruguy  +   1948d ago
Gamestation'll probably do a trade in on MW2 & some other games for black ops..
ambientFLIER  +   1948d ago
Not going to sell it. I like collecting games, and going back to older ones sometimes.
GCNSeanFoster  +   1948d ago
I will never sell it... I need something to frustrate me and piss me off from time to time...
IWentBrokeForGaming  +   1948d ago
I remember I bought MW2 for $40 from Best Buy
and about 2 months later is when Gamestop was offering $40 trade in on it around when GOW3 came out... so that was my down payment for GOW3, and I can honestly say it was a damn good decision!
emekcrash  +   1948d ago
Didn't buy it. I'm not retarded and I don't like getting milked every year (CoD 4 - 2007, WaW - 2008, MW2 - 2009 and Black Ops - 2010. See a little pattern yet?). Only had CoD 4 and rented WaW.
Jaws902  +   1948d ago
Between 15,000-20,000 STILL play COD4 (360)
ExitToExisT  +   1948d ago
4 million? they should have said 25 million
Close_Second  +   1947d ago
MW2 was hyped...
...beyond belief. Activision is doing the same for Ops and people are buying into it again!?!

The COD franchise ended after the brilliant COD4 for me. Biggest complaint is the price. No way are the COD games worth so much new, especially when you consider its basically the same game engine and the games are getting shorter and shorter.
vickers500  +   1947d ago
"Activision is doing the same for Ops and people are buying into it again!?!"

They've only f*cked up one game so far. Have you given up on Grand Theft Auto as well just because of one bad game?

"and the games are getting shorter and shorter"

You actually bought a Call of Duty game for the single player? Lol.
Irnbruguy  +   1946d ago
Why should it come down to buying a game because of its single player or its multiplayer? thats so dumb.
whitesoxfalife  +   1947d ago
Bromeslice  +   1947d ago
I'm really sick of everybody hating on MW2. Yeah, the online is frustrating at times, but if you're sick of all the hackers then try not playing ground war. Everybody says how much it sucks, how shitty it is, etc., but it did sell over 11 million. I fell as though when anything gets popular people suddenly think it sucks. Hate the people that cheat the game, not the game itself.
Kran  +   1947d ago
agreed. Its not such a bad game people say it is. People are just annoyed they couldnt get what they wanted from IW. Dunno about you, but they're the ones who made it. BE GREATFUL... well.... after the whole IW incident.... i dont think we can xD
GilIsMunny  +   1947d ago
I agree
There is a trend, especially in the gaming community, where players will veto a brand once it starts making headlines. Activision / Ninja Theory / Harmonix I agree.

I had my fun with MW 2. But for me, it's just time to move on.
Kran  +   1947d ago
Im gonna keep my copy. I have all the CoD games in the main series, so im gonna keep it for the collection :) I do it with all my games. Its either sell a stand alone game, sell the whole series, or keep it :P
