Once Black Ops hits, what'll happen to those 4 million copies of Modern Warfare 2?
I sold it 2 months after launch.
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.
Selling your games back to gamestop for a fraction of their value is such an idiot move. GS thanks you.
Gamestop doesn't even exist in the UK. So shutup.
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 copy.....by 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.
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.
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
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?
It was fun, but it has a lot of problems that need to be fixed
I sold mine after I got BFBC2 haha.
mikepmcc.. YOU MADE THE BEST MOVE THERE!!
I should have sold BFBC2!
sold mine 3 months after
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.
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.
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?
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?
because the people here are the minority, we all just like to think we make up most of the gamers.
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.
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.
you know if you sell yours to someone there are still the same amount of people who own the game.
:) 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
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
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.
Sold mine the day after launch. One day of playing was enough to convince me to go back to CoD4, and BC2.
I sold it 2 weeks after launched and never looked back ! Went back to COD 4 and World at War
I sold mine after I finished Storymode.
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.
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
Or a long time ago when you could of gotten some real money for it.
didnt have to sell mine because i dont buy horrible games
I trade the game the next day I brought it, best decision ever
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.
one step ahead of the author
i sold mine for ff13
What did you sell that for? lol
circle of life
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.
2nd hand bargain bin for xmas.
wont be bargain bing until new one is released there like FIFA games they never go bargain bin until the new one is released.
I definitely won't be in the bargain bin...cod4 is still like forty bucks new and that came out in 07.
so you not gonna be in the bargain bin?
*IT...sorry man, typo lol.
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.
each one plays differently my face when
No thnx i got the hardened edition and im keeping it.
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.
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
it not the game fault, right? explain to me the 4hr single mode?
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
too bad the cover art will contribute more to sales than the game...
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.
Didn't buy it in the first place.
Eh...as 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.
Single-player is a blast, co-op is solid and the multiplayer still addictive so... no thanks.
The multiplayer is addictive in the same sense a batch of bad heroin is.
Is there such a thing as good heroin?
I never bought the POS lol
Sold mine when gamestop offered 40 for it and got ff13
Only things that interest me about Black Ops are the new game modes and COD points. The rest? Rehashed content
sold both of mine ps3 and 360 week after launch. i too was massively disappointing. note sure to even bother with black ops
What!!!!! 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
Already sold it and got Enslaved
I only rented MW2.
Gamestation'll probably do a trade in on MW2 & some other games for black ops..
