Pretty sad, with all the issues with this game it still sells tons.

And 1.22 million of those are Xbox 360 version which is sold out everywhere ....

Expect a PS3 version price drop tomorrow as no ones buying it .... because they're too busy watching blue ray

Can't wait to see the pathetic droids defending their "cell shaded" unfarted game, which barely any of the 28 million PS3 owners could even bother to buy ... oh wait ... they were free blue ray players with HD Tv's bought by 60 year olds who don't play games ....

Game of the year no doubt.
Looking forward to the bitter replies from so called "gamers".

Modern Warfare 2 --- the 'Titanic' of the games industry.

ultimately a mediocre product that will go on to gross billions much like the film.

That being said i thoroughly enjoyed playing the game yesterday. I would give it a 9.

I don't think its the second coming like some critics would lead us to believe though.

Game of the year needs to be a game where the game actually works instead of full with glitches and not being able to get online plus the goty actually needs to do something new and not just new skins and casual perks that make the game even more arcade style then it already is. Has to have a killer single player longer then 5 hours. Pretty much leaves 1 game and thats uc2 nothing even comes close to it this year and especially not mediocre warfare 2 that just rehashed the same multiplayer with new skins and perks. Activisions new slogan pay more for less.
