Estimated pre-order data is in and Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare has an alarmingly low number of pre-orders.
I'm glad. Not because I want the game to fail, but for once it would be good to see gamers actually stick to their guns instead of bashing a game constantly, claiming it's a waste of money, down voting the trailer into oblivion... and then buying it anyway.
Yes, for years there is complaining what COD has become but the sales were always good. So why would they change it? If now finally the game won't sell well, they might listen and go back to what COD should be about
Oh it's gonna sell more than any other shooter no matter what. That is the cold hard truth.
I actually want the game to fail.
Same here. It's the Michael Bay of gaming.
I'm not sure why you think "gamers" are one collective entity. You realize the people bashing the game are not the same as the ones buying the game right? There are some, but vast majority of the buyers are from the casual market, or people who don't participate in gaming website comments.
Yes, but I've seen comments from tons of people on YouTube who say they hate the direction of the new Cod, think keeping MW Remastered exclusive to the legacy edition is a dick move, that Activision is just milking them, but they're going to buy it anyway because they want MW Remastered. And that's just the people who are being open about it. I guarantee many gamers who say they won't get it and down-voted the trailer will put down a pre-order. Also, I'm pretty sure the casual market uses YouTube. If IW can sell gangbusters after having the most disliked gaming video on YouTube, I'm just not sure what to think.
I couldn't give a shit, they did a cheap move by locking the remaster behind the space warfare base game and there's far better shooters e.g. Battlefield 1 and Gears 4 coming this fall anyway
Clicked disagree downvote thing by mistake. Hopefully the preorders stay like this and that people are not duped by Activisions adverts pumped out with some random celebrity
We'll see this e3 i guess. Quick question. During their presentation, how much time do you think will be devoted to infinite warefare, how much time for modern warefare and how much time for the dlc and seasosn pass. Im feeling bone for modern warfare and 40% on infinite warfare and 60% on the seasons pass and dlc you dont get at launch lol
@Goldby I think a lot of the time will be devoted to Infinite Warfare by whichever conference it is in to make it seem like it's a great addition to the Cod series, and mentioning some random stats from advanced warfare/blops3 to make it seem like people want this sort of thing. Then only a brief mention of the remaster.
Oh right..I totally forgot there is Gears 4 going after the COD demographics this year. Big factor!
Good. Force them to release COD4 remaster separately or risk losing sales.
Better, force them to make a good game instead.
Not happening, the studios have been gutted, just like EA's studios, they are devoid of talent.
@annoyedgamer Dont be surprised if Bungie begins making COD installments. Sure Acti hasnt taken over but it wouldnt be shocking if they did. Besides Bungie are no longer the flaming ninja masters we once knew.
Nobody's seen any substantial gameplay yet.
Bingo. I swear we get these types of articles with every single Cod release around this time of year before any gameplay has been shown, yet it'll no doubt go on to sell 20+ million. I'm keeping an open mind until something is actually shown.
Good. I'll buy AW 2 next year. Treyarch and Infinity Ward need to keep their ass on the ground. Sledgehammer should be the only game with advanced movement. Cod needs to be like a Oreo, same bottom and top cookie, with that special something in the middle. Activision, you fudged up.
Ironically, next year when they go back to the same unoriginal gameplay and same unoriginal plot then you will be crying because they don't try anything different. If you think Infinite Warfare is going to be drastically different minus the space backdrop then you probably need to rethink the COD devs creativity because every COD has been the same game since 4 with a different backdrop.
What hes saying i think is sledge hammer should focus on future, infinity ward on modern and treyarch on history. At least that way itll be easier to fool everyone because of the rotations in yhe backdrops lol
Wow. That is some dive. (it's VGchartz so it won't be that accurate but still...) At this time Black Cops 3 had combined preorders of 711,000. While COD:IW has combined preorders of 63,500 only. This is like a drop of 89%. I'm not saying I'm happy but...I kinda am. Lets see if this shakes Activision to get something right with COD.
Yes finally it is over
1. VGchartz 2. No it's not.
Damn. You'll defend cod to the death won't you...
VGChartz may not be 100% accurate, but it's in the ballpark. It's not like the game currently has a million pre orders and the website just says it has 100k.
I'm sorry, but using VGchartz makes this article useless. VGchartz is not reliable whatsoever.
Is that the website run by that prepubescent in his moms basement making up sales figures, making it look like xbox sales are close to PlayStation sales?
Ya thats the one.
Atm it says X1 sales are only a third of PS4 sales.
Please include the link that shows Xbox's sales are close to PS' sales. I've seen nothing of the sort.
Don't think so cause they do nothing but undertrack everything so you're probably thinking of another site.
Exactly this, they are always corrected when real data is released.
If this game tanks, i'll throw a party. It's about time the COD bubble burst, still expecting it to meet sales expectations but these early signs are extremely encouraging.
Why? You people are odd. You do know you don't have to have anything to do with this game right lol?
Well for starters, if the downward trend continues, it could force Activision's hand into releasing COD 4 remaster as a standalone product. And if it's released and the COD bubble really does burst, Activision would likely have to look at rethinking their strategy which would mean a better quality product.
Quality. I find it funny that there are 3 companies making COD games so they can release every year, yet ever since that trend started they've gotten worse.
How about you just not play COD instead of wishing for it's downfall. It has its audience. Apparently you're not apart of it. And don't get me confused with a COD fanatic. I am NOT.
I'm wishing for COD's downfall in hopes that they rethink their strategy and release a better product. COD's downfall could be terrible for the industry but Activision realizing that people have stopped drinking their koolaid and actually have to make some real effort would benefit everyone.
I want the bubble to burst so bad! It's about time we stop getting rehashed, trash games that appeal to the masses that are riddled with DLC and all about big numbers. @deadly Once again, I believe this bubble bursting will be good for the industry. COD is not healthy gaming for the industry. It's a poor attempt at making something mainstream and now every game strives for that kind of reaction from the consumer. I stopped buying into COD long ago. I'm just sick of seeing all the companies do what COD is doing and ruin their franchises because of it. Nobody is "odd" for thinking this way. Why should we be Activision's "sheep" and just buy into all their poorly produced games?! I'm not wanting them to completely change everything every year like many claim. I wouldn't mind it of the gameplay and things stayed the same. I just want them to do it right! Graphics should be way better than they are. Maps should be bigger. We shouldn't continue to see all the multiplayer issues with each new release. Map packs should be free as they shrink the user base. The list goes on and on...
There was a beta for pre-orders only last year. I don't see the point in pre-ordering game so earlier, will do it one week before the release date.
Donr borher pre oderinging. Just like every single othwr preoder bonus for any other game, itll be avaiable after the fact, give it a month and you can buy mw remaster in stores or online. Preorder bonuses are the fucking devil. No value what so ever. Just stupid flashy bits to get their monwy early
The developers should re-think about new cod
It doesn't release for another 5 months...
Nah, people just starting to realize that cod is the same stupid broken hame that drops every year and that Battlefield is a better game.
COD and Battlefield are very different types of games to me. Yeah they're both FPS games but they play completely differently and aim for different audiences. Kinda annoys me when people compare them. Also when has COD ever released "broken"? I know BF has but I can't recall COD ever doing it.
Battlefield is the same stupid broken game each year also. Hardline was complete garbage and should have been a 30 dollar expansion. Battlefield 3 was broken for several months (when we played the beta nothing was changed into the full release, and most of us hated the focus on close quarters combat, it took them a long time just to introduce some proper maps), and so was Battlefield 4. And then Dice released a Battlefront game which is WORSE than its 10 year old prequels. Bad Company 2 was the last good game DIce put out. It's funny how you're comparing a turd to a turd and trying to pass off one of them as a better turd.
im thinking Titanfall will give COD a run for its money! BF4 isnt really shooting for the COD audience. I only think they get pinned up against each other because they are both huge AAA shooters and come out the same season.
I'll pre order mine digitally closer 2 release
now that's a dedication,show them that their game suck and gamers won't buy shit like that
Thank god, maybe some people will start investing their FPS time into a real god tier shooter like ARMA 3. Disagree?... Hmm. https://www.youtube.com/wat... Ask yourself, have you EVER once had an experience like that in COD/BF? No, nobody has, nor ever will, "Don't lie to yourself just because your afraid to take 15 minutes to learn a better game!" OH MAN DON'T YOU KNOW FRANKIE SCRIP- I've had these moments so many times over the years with the Arma series it's not even funny. And i'd trade both COD/BF for just 1 of them. OH MAN SOME PPL JUST WANNA HOP IN A GA- Play king of the hill. 20x better than any COD/BF mode. And it's hop in and play. It saddens me marketing is so powerful that 1 second of gameplay in a trailer with a song you'll never hear in the game can win the world. I'd say, "Children man...", but kid's aren't supposed to play these games right? Their marketed to adults!.. Yea... *rolls eyes*
What a drama queen. Did you put on your lipstick before or after that cringeworthy final sentence?
For once I'm happy with the mass-gamer market, hopefully this means CoD4: R being released separately, I loved the original.
Is anybody really surprised? The trailer's the second most disliked on YouTube! If that's not a good indication that people aren't happy, I don't know what is. R.I.P CoD I guess ... However, just because people hate the setting, doesn't mean the game's neecessarily gonna be bad. There's no reason why you can't have Black Ops 2 game mechanics, theoretically. Whatever the case though, CoD is not really the same genre as Battlefield, it's way more individual, so people will continue playing and buying one of the games. No doubt they should sell the remaster separately though. That's just scandalous.
Yes, although I thought the dislike trailer thing was a bandwagon thing people jumped on and actually upped the game's sales chances. Evidently that doesn't seem true
This year will be a bad sales year for COD compared to the previous titles. Battlefield One in October Titanfall 2 and the COD 4 remaster is behind an Infinite Warfare Paywall. I feel so sorry for Greedivision /rofl This only means If the game gots released they need more supply drops to compensate the low sales. F*** them.
Let's see if they roll off the COD 4:R paywall in the wake of this information. On the one hand, releasing it separately will partially salvage the supervillain-esque greedy reputation Activision has earned with these tactics, but on the other, I imagine a decent proportion of those sales are based on the inclusion of CoD 4:R alone. I imagine those callous hard-nosed gits at Activision will focus solely on that second point though. As much as I want it, I'm not going to be roped into buying a game I don't want (Infinite Warfare) just to play what's being included as a "bonus".
Yeah , I hope these cheap gimmick sites go down including this one, let's hope gaming goes the way of Atari for all the years of bullcrap
Nice! If people want Activision to stop being the way they are, they need to stop freaking supporting them. I'm glad that gamers don't fall for CoD4 remaster
Hopefully this is a sign that the age of CoD is over. I'd like it if everyone moved on to something new now.
The games made by what is left of Infinity ward lately have been proven to be the worst in the series. Can't blame people for hesitating. Also there is Gears 4 going after the shooter demographics this year!
They finally manged to run COD into the ground, just like Guitar Hero and Tony Hawk before it.
I'm not going to miss or wait for the cod4 remaster. Thats all there is to it for me. If I have to buy the new cod (which could be decent for all we know) then so be it. it's a shitty tactic but the judgement hammer on infinite is purely emotional.
Why would anyone blindly pre-order ANY game before any real gameplay has been shown?
I'm not really a cod fan, or battlefield for that matter. I don't play online so that portion means nothing to me. I'll buy them when they drop to 25 or lower on psn though. I've picked up battlefield 4, hardline, ghosts, advanced warfare and they're all generic cliche shooters I don't understand whall of a sudden this one is getting so much hate.
Gamers are an emotional train wreck like little girls. Veruca Salty. https://youtu.be/TRTkCHE1sS...
I'd wait a few months. This game will still sell a ridiculous amount, regardless of hate. Half my friends list pre-ordered the game as soon as they mentioned Modern Warfare Remaster. I personally will not be buying it, unless they release MW separately.
I'm curious to see what the preorder numbers are for the version that comes with Modern Warfare. That could be where all the preorder are. I say this because gamers aren't known for sticking to their guns when claiming to boycott certain games.
I pre-ordered just for COD4 alone, but I just happen to get 2 games for the price of one.
