It's tricky, people buy COD in massive numbers so why - and look at this from a business point of view, not a fanboy one - would you stop making them?

People will always just play what they want to, though I do think we're hitting a dangerously high level of over-saturation with games coming out. Look at this week alone, NeverDead, MGS HD Collection, Soul Calibur, do they all need to come out this week? It's getting crazier and crazier.
