Thanks to the Troll who incorrectly 'reported' this story, thus not allowing it to be promoted like the dozens we have submitted beforehand. Is there any way to remove an incorrect Report?

Agreed; this article should not have been reported. Is there a way to remove this report status?

To the N4G community:
I feel that GraveLord incorrectly "reported" this article. His comment doesn't reflect the type of reason behind the report. He talks about the story being a duplicate (which it is not) & puts the reason as "Other".
We've posted our stories here many times without friction & believe this member to be acting out of spite.
I would like the "report" status to be removed from the story. Thank you.

1. This is a duplicate. These NPD numbers have been reported on numerous times. Your article just goes more in depth.(Too much IMO)

2. Out of spite? I don't know you, I don't know this site. You wish someone had spite against your no-name site.

3. My report doesn't matter. People can bypass my report if they feel it's worth approving.

4. I'm sorry if you feel my report wasn't justified. I'm just trying to do quality control.

What? You reported the article because "in your opinion" it goes into "too much detail"????
that sounds communist somehow..

Good thing Big Brother is over there reporting those articles with "too much info" to keep us safe.

I don't know about never, Berserk. Like I said in my article, first January sales of MW3 (386,000) were a little over half of the first January sales of Black Ops (750,000) and a bit more over half of the first January sales of MW2 (658,000). MW3 may still be breaking the launch sales records but its sales tail doesn't seem to be quite as long.

Activision's gonna milk this franchise out like they did Guitar Hero & I think we're seeing the first signs of Call of Duty fatigue. That's probably why they put up that Call of Duty Elite thing. Gotta get the last dollars before the train leaves the station.

If Activision insists on making another Call of Duty for the 2012 holidays, we'll see how it sells—short-term & long-term.
Then again, they could extend the power of the franchise by making a Call of Duty Kart. Hahahaha!

Just joking.

I am one of those people responsible for putting MW3 on the #1 most bought list. Take your anger out on me if you wish.
