Review scores often dictate sales potential in this industry. But when a franchise rules the earth as Call of Duty does, do those scores even matter anymore?
CoD is like Apple products, upgrade it a little and you will still have people buying. Even if tech sites gave the iphone4s a bad review a mass of people will still go out and buy it. If most of the top gaming sites gave MW3 a low score people would still go out and buy the game. CoD is mainstream so it doesn't matter just like Apple have brand name products.
Well Steve is dead and the iPhone 4s got very poor reviews and I have seen apparent Apple ultimate fanboys scream blue and get a different phone. CODs days could be numbered if they keep this up. Just like Apples.
COD is the one game that most people won't worry about reviews. It's the only reason why it would sell millions in one night.
Like most Hollywood blockbusters that get killed on Rotten Tomatoes (ie. Transformers) no, it won't matter. It'll still outsell everything this year most likely.
