Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 stands to break a number of sales records, but will it be the best-selling game in history? Some analysts believe the game could sell an upwards of 10 million copies globally by Christmas.
It's going to have to beat Wii Sports and Wii Fit to have that distinction. Not only does it have to sell huge early, but it needs to have some serious legs inorder to beat those 2.
who approved this? better give them one year suspension for doing so!
This game will be the most sold game this year, that is for sure. As for most sold ever... That is to be seen. I know I bought two copies and that is all that matters to me. I have two PS3's so it's to be expected.
"I know I bought two copies and that is all that matters to me. I have two PS3's so it's to be expected" Fools and money. Seriously, what a waste to buy the same game twice.
No more than spending money on two game systems in one generation.
But it sounds more foolish to me to make a general assumption about somebody that would buy two copies of a game. You guys sound bitter and reading your post history I see one of you is a Modern Warfare hater... *clicks ignore*
I have no doubts it will sell massive amounts but to be honest I think it's the most overated POS ever next to GTA4. COD4.5 and Cod4 was better. Last gen graphics, 2d effects, no story, no charm, no length, and broken mp. It a good game but completely play out and the wow factor is gone. Lots of explosions but just boring as hell.
Here's the top 5: 1. Wii Play (Wii – 24.43 million) 2. Wii Fit (Wii – 22.5 million) 3. Nintendogs (DS – 22.27 million, all five versions combined) 4. Pokémon Red, Blue, and Green (Game Boy – 20.08 million approximately: 10.23 million in Japan, 9.85 million in US) 5. New Super Mario Bros. (DS – 19.94 million) Good luck with that.
lol Top 5.. *smirks* Ninten-owned.
Super Mario 64 sold over 40 million.
Um, masterg? N64 didn't even sell 40 million consoles. Super Mario 64 sold less than 12 million copies.
How about the original Mario that sold like 140 million.
Yeah, that list is only of the releases from this gen. Heck, Sims and Myst would beat most of those games on the PC, let alone some of the classic N64 and SNES games.
Biggest Selling Game in History?! I guess some analyst started gaming with PS360
is up there too right? mw2 will sell alot but i dont think it will be the best selling game ever, thats just the claim infinity ward made a while ago EDIT: ^^nevermind, pokemon is definitely up there
maybe the biggest selling western game in history
probably in 360 and ps3
Any of those so called Nintendo games are garbage, they should not have sold any, one copy was one too many.
take your chosen usernames advice captain **** cheese. Nintendo have done great things for the gaming industry.
price of 1 ps360 game = price 3or 4time price of those Nintendo gmaes ,, price of PS3/360 = 10time the price of DS, they are more kiddy-friendly, way more cheap,, funny how people still compare apples with oranges
More like shortest SP game in history, lol. An still charged $60.
Except this game is mostly about the multi-player. As short as the SP is, it's still a great campaign. What can you say when MAG get's released which has no SP at all, just like Warhawk. It will be purchased for it's multiplayer just like MW2.
What can I say about MAG? How about 256 players for starters. Not some small little fight with 9 vs 9. I can say maps that are 10 times larger than anything COD has ever put out. I can say ranks actually means something in MAG. Because now you give orders. If people were to really see all COD is. There would not be so much hype. Look, BCBF2 came along and just blew COD out of the water in advancement game play and graphic's. Just like that... Besides, was IW ever going around saying the SP game was only 5 hours long before it was released? Nope, because people would be like WTH? 5 hours? Two years in the making and 5 hours? Like I can start it at breakfast and be done by lunch? LOL....
Look at the source, "brandnewgamers"
lol....yeah. They're probably new to gaming and don't know s**t about gaming history.
farmville best game of all time? -Brandnewgamers
I couldn't careless if CODMW2 will be the greatest selling game ever good on IW, I guess. It's just sickening to see people line up or camp the vid store for a copy of a video game.
Well the list is already full off mediocre games except for 4,5 those are actual worth the sales.
You mean this? http://www.youtube.com/watc...
The "boomerang lag" thought to have disappeared from PC gaming 6 years ago is back with MW2. Thanks for nothing, Infinitely Woodenheads.
Don't bother...people will justify murder if they are on the wrong side of it. People try to justify anything if they have absolute faith in it. Look at religion. Videogames have kind of become like a religion, and people will defend their games like many people would defend Christ or Allah. Best is to laugh at their absolute delusioned devotion. The again, I'd love to play MW2 and ima get it later on. But i do enjoy seeing people trying to defend this overhyped mess =)
Fack you whale(Activision) and a fack you dolphin(Infinity Ward)!!!
Lols. A lot of guys were saying that at the midnight launch here in Decatur, IL.
Hopefully this will pull more big time investors to start up more game devs.....It could change the game-
Before MW2 half my PSN friends were playing Uncharted 2. Since MW2 released all my friends are playing that. I didn't bother but clearly it's gonna be a massive selling game.
are boycotting MW2 and the PS3 !!! simples
so now you say 360 is 3rd lol
I said they're boycotting the PS3 - i.e. all the PS2 nerds who bought a wii and Xbox 360 this Gen instead of a crappy PS3. Get it!!!
have amassed 4 to 5 billion loss with the first xbox and 2-3 billion loss with the 360 so that takes it up to around a 8 billion loss :P
16 million xbox's have died? ouch 360 broke records of being the most unreliable electriconic piece of sh1t ever released
It's a shame, because I completed MW2 on the 6th of Nov (I know, I know), and I didn't think much of it all, Uncharted 2 is much the better game, but hasn't gained the publicity that MW2 has. I mean, a game that has silenced shotguns that shoot 8 rounds a second...(CoD:MW2), imagine people jumping round corners with that online! No thanks...
I've played through both...and I give it to Modern Warfare 2.
THE SIMS? Super Mario Bro's? Man kids these days don't know anything about gaming....
sadly, you're right.
This is a stupid article, try beating supermario bros which sold or 10 other Nintendo titles that sold over 20mil copies, so unless this game sells 50mil it wont be the best selling game in history, and i don't see that happening, its sad that articles like this actually get posted.
That title belongs to the N-Gage!!!
These guys are dreaming. Nintendo says hi.
