Wow, I must say that's impressive, however I also say that MW2 is perhaps the best examples of why sales =/= quality.

This is a fine example of hype. $3 billion worth of it in fact. And you know what $3 billion of hype does to a game? It turns it into a disappointment for lots of gamers. The CoD franchise is a great franchise, but it doesn't deserve $3 billion IMO.
