GameStop: Modern Warfare 3 pre-orders “significantly ahead” of Black Ops

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 isn’t due for release until November, but pre-orders are already open at many retailers. And according to US retailer GameStop, demand for Activision’s third Modern Warfare title places it ahead of where last year’s Black Ops was at a similar time.

And it continues... I'll be first on deck to get this!!!!

And will make my decision on Battlefield 3 when I behold some CONSOLE footage. Not getting fooled like the BF sheep.

You people never never learn do you, you have some nerve calling people who play battle field "sheep" BFBC2 overall had sales that round about 5 mill now tell me the sales of MW2 and black ops then ask your self who's a blind sheep just following the pack

Unfortunately they don't. I still don't really see what Activision has been working hard on, it's pathetic. They will remake the same game, same engine, different scenarios, online system that doesn't even support dedicated servers, and they'll do this every year but STILL people will go ahead and buy this game like their lives depend on it. Call of Duty died after Modern Warfare 1.

Console kids: doin work

now imagine the backlash when these uninformed idiots find out they gotta shell out monthly for their maps.

Thats sad. Not getting fooled by Battlefield 3 but you got MW3? Didn't you buy Black Ops and you wasn't fooled?

Its weird that every year COD sells more than its predecessor. You would think the installbase had reached it peak by now.

Even though everyone hates Activison you have to give them credit for creating a franchise that can be released every year and be the biggest selling game release ever. Truly crazy.

Its the word of mouth. When the BF3 trailer cam out I didnt hear anobody outside of the web talk about it. Whereas for the MW3 trailer even my facebook contacts were updating their status's and talking about the trailer.

COD is just part of pop culture now.

Sadly, true. TBH though I enjoyed MW2 but not Blops.

It just appeals to everyone. I often see people who barely even play games talking about CoD and playing it regularly. There's people who own consoles and only have the CoD games, nothing else.

Negative comments or not, you're still advertising it by complaining. Feel free to continue:)

TBM2719d ago (Edited 2719d ago )

Just proves that CoD fans don't need no improvements to the franchise at all, and it will still sell because of its name.

I think i'll save my money from now (even though I didn't buy Black Ops) when it comes to activision and this franchise.

I think i'll just support BF3 this time around since i'm more interested in that than MW3:
