quote Lee Bradley - xbox360achievements.orgSource: Black Ops II Already Breaking Retail RecordsLove it or hate it, expect more stories like this in the coming months. Black Ops II is already breaking retail records.
According to Amazon, day one pre-orders for the latest Call of Duty game are three times higher than those achieved by its 2010 predecessor Black Ops.
“Set to be one of the biggest games of the year, it’s great to see so much enthusiasm and anticipation for Call of Duty: Black Ops II,” said Amazon UK’s video games manager Graham Chambers.
“Bolder and better than before and with everything from a futuristic storyline through to single player mode, Zombies and multiplayer, Black Ops II promises something Call of Duty fans have never seen before.’’
Why is that news, you ask? Because Black Ops remains the biggest-selling game in the history of the CoD franchise, and by extension one of the biggest-selling games ever. Blops II looks like it might be even bigger. Must be the horses.
quote The HazardThey will keep making titles until they see more than a 20% drop in sales. They will then tweak the formula which knowing the fan base will be enough to give the series another 5 years of record breaking sales.d) they're just gonna keep on making and churning out titles until those records are no more... or even further, until sales really start taking a dive. So ETA around Modern Warfare 6, maybe?
quote HU1CH13this, and b) this is basically an open invitation to those money-grubbing sumbitches to get more profit by doing the same map pack/DLC practices they've been pulling off for years, and they might even make more bullshit moves this time around. Won't be a complete negative nancy yet but we'll see.The CoD fanbass are full on window lickers. Complain every year about how shit and annoying the game is, yet they go and *bleep*ing pre-order the next one without knowing *bleep* all about it.
quote HU1CH13and I guess this too. ha.But this breaking records so early isn't because of how good the game looks, but simply because of how stupid and brainwashed the fan base is.
