I think the game will make at the least $240,000,000 to $420,000,000 being the most in first week sales.
thats about 4-6 million between both systems, PS3, XBOX 360.

If I had to guess the exact, it's going to land about 4.75 million copies sold.. which would put world wide sales to 285,000,000..

MR. Michael Pachter = FAIL...

That's over 8 million sales. o_o

Edit: Assuming that all of the sales are of the non-prestige edition. Which they aren't.

So... maybe 7 million sales?

Activision needs to raise the price even higher!

Is this the same Michael Pachter who claimed Borderlands was put out to die by 2K Games? The same Borderlands that has sold more that 400K units in its launch week? FAIL!

cyberwaffles3366d ago

so pachter thinks MW2 is going to sell 8.3 million copies the first week?

ok, people need to start bookmarking all of his predictions and resend them to the agency pachter works for so they can fire him.

I hate when he states the obvious! He's as bad as a psychic telling you that you will be getting a large sum of money... You wanna say, "Of course i'll be getting a large sum of money, I get paid next week you dumb [email protected]$#!"

I played KZ2 instead of World at War so I'm ready for some CoD. Even if it is published by Activsion.

I except this to have a high burst of sales then decrease dramatically after the initial first week sales.
Look i am a analyst now /s

Analysts actually spew their bullsh*t with a rudimentary understanding of the English language, at least...
