MMGN: Bitch, please. I don’t care what the figures say, we all know Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 will dominate the sales charts in November, that is, after it has officially been announced.
people say that it isn't in decline, but it really is. It didn't pass Black Ops sales, but people say that "they can't grow anymore because it's fanbase has reached its peak." But if it reached its peak, MW3 would have more sales!
If vgchartz is to be believed, Black Ops on xbox 360 has sold a total of 13.27 million in the year and odd months that it has been out, MW3 on the other hand has sold 13.79 million units in the 5 months since its release.
I don't think there's a decline just yet, if VGC is to be trusted that is.
@ Hufanpuf I don't know where you're getting your information from but Activision announced that Modern Warfare 3 had outsold Black Ops only 3 months after its launch. MW3 is selling slower now than Black Ops did at this time last year, but I think that's because most of MW3's sales were front loaded.
Gametrailers says different: http://www.gametrailers.com... Modern Warfare 3 are off by 4.2 percent, behind Black Ops' figures. Sales are slowing!
Uhhhh.... nope. MW3 has sold more than Black Ops. But the game is broken though. Its very rage enducing. Not because I suck at it, its just the maps are so poorly layed out and the spawn system does not help either. Why in hell would Acticvision even let a new developer take charge of their flagship title's online is my question
Uh, it DID pass Black Ops in sales. And its only been out for 5 months. Call of Duty is STILL growing each every year. It hasn't reached its peak yet. If MW3 was the peak, we wouldn't know until this time next year.
I can't wait for sales to drop, when Guitar Hero sales slumped greedy old Bobby Turned to COD, but has he got something else to fall back on and milk, no! The end is near!
In terms of quality for me? Yeah.. CoD4 was the last good COD game
It will always be the best because it was fresh and new back then. It was like nothing else out there. But now, after playing pretty much 4 of the same game (I'm not counting waw because the guns were dramatically different in that one) it's getting old, now. I'd like to see it do something crazy and change it all up rather than it die, though.
I hope to God it really is in decline.
I hope So!
This time of year everyone keeps saying it's in decline and those loyal sheep start looking for greener pastures talking about how boring cod is getting and how they won't buy the next version. Then November comes and they buy it again and rinse and repeat the same process this time next year. Maybe it's slowly starting to decline but lets be honest, everyone is trying to copy it's formula and failing.. simply put there is nothing else out there for the people looking for that "wow I'm so awesome" feeling cod gives people.
Battlefield isn't released every year. The main series that is.
Battlefield is slower paced and much larger and actually takes skill to fire the guns and deal with the recoil. The ADD/ADHD generation of cod players generally hate battlefield.
All the people hoping for CODs decline are fools. Why on earth would you want a franchise to go down when it makes devs like DICE provide a different and in my opinion, even better experience? If COD keeps raking in sales, then people will be vocal about how each game is just a .5 version of the last. GOOD! Helps the competition. I haven't played COD since MW2 but I certainly dont hate it. Its just not my thing anymore. I remember when Epic screwed up Gears 2 online (Gears 1 was my favourite online game ever) and after a few complaints I never played Gears again because the best way to protest is to not play/buy their games. Bitch about COD all you want but don't keep bitching about it if you keep buying it. And if you don't buy it and are into something else then why do you care?
Stop talking about Call of duty please .. i beg you ! every freaking time i hear that word it makes me sick .. Ugh i'm sick of it !
Every time someone mentions 'that' game a fairy loses her wings
. . a What !!? No freaking way .. you compare fairies with this !! I'm done .. this is too much for me ಥロಥ .
I just like black ops and call of duty 4. Waw was nice too. Not a fan of mw series though. I'll see how blapck ops 2 turns out. The first black ops had all kinds of new stuff, split screen online, wager matches, more customization, gun game, and bots in training mode. Not to mention it was the most balanced since 4.
Lets see, it broke the record set by Black Ops for biggest launched ever, so that is gain. It was the number one selling game as well, its over 20 million units in and over 1.5 million people pay for Elite at $50 a pop. Decline? Never happen. The thing that Call Of Duty has going for it is pop culture status, its in television, movies and everywhere. It brings in non gamers and hardcore gamers alike. People that try to compare it to Guitar Hero are just wishful thinking, there was never a Guitar Hero that sold 20+ million units. The problem with Guitar Hero is that they would make more than one game per year and try to use bands that couldn't carry a whole game by themselves. People buy COD because its the "cool thing to do" and because there friends play it. I like the franchise and buy every one, MW3 is probably me least favorite and I did the typical "Never gonna buy another cod after this one" but then I see BO2 is gonna release and I'm like "day one!". I know I'll buy it and you will too. Bottom line is that there just anything else out there as competitive or with the community size that COD has.
I have only played Black OPs and Modern Warfare (the first one), and I like both of those games. I don't understand the hype, but they aren't bad games either.
yep because ive stopped playing it and took about 15 friends with me the rest still play black ops. lets c black ops 2 changes things
COD? Declining in Sales? LOL. COD has been top seller for years knocking Halo off the top spot and Halo has been seeing declining sales every time. Where do you think those players went to?
people will buy COD based on title alone regardless if its the same game every year.MW2 was the first COD game I bought and the last. I bought the first DLC and I knew why it was called MW. MW=MONEY WASTED.
