I'm liking it more than the other call of dutys, but seriously? It's not like if you don't pre-order you will miss out on day one release. People are just too quick to part with their money. As much as I like it so far there are still immense amounts that haven't even been talked about yet.

Bottom-line: Ridiculous.

Must have been the horses in the trailer that attracted everyone.

Ok guys...HORSE ARMOUR DLC. You heard it first here.

Impressed? yes, surprised? no

Treyarch is putting a new face to an already high selling franchise, i had no doubts it would set records

See i'm one of those people who stopped playing mw3 a month or two after release, who when I get the chance will bitch about the cod series and what it's become over the years.

But, I *bleep*ing love me some zombies, and even if the multiplayers shit i'll still be getting this game just for that.

I Like some of the stuff they are on about doing, it's nice to see a bit of change - but at the same time, theres a very high possibility of whatever changes they make being super gay.

Either way, i've got more money than sense so don't mind throwing my coins at trey arch, even if I do hate cod lmao.

Why is anyone surprised? COD is obviously the biggest game on the market in terms of popularity

It makes me shudder when i think about all those millions of camping, glitching, dropshotting mother*bleep*ing bastards just waiting to get their hands on the game to be utter *bleep*

plus all kids

Haha jeezus.

Don't get me wrong, that is impressive and certainly something to tout, but a)

quote HU1CH13
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.
this, 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.

Sounds to me as well that a good portion of those gamers were just turned off my MW3... on that basis, I wouldn't blame them.

quote HU1CH13
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.
and I guess this too. ha.

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?

They 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.

I will be on halo 4 so personally I don't care what records they break but if the zombies is good I might purchase then again I might not because the rest of the package is broke before it comes out.

Every new CoD sales more that the former ones. So, yep, Black Ops II will sale more than the first one and then, MW4 or Black Ops 3 will sale even more.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 - More preorders than Battlefield 3
Battlefield 3 - Won over 50 awards whilst Modern Warfare 3 won none.
Both - Considered the Worst Games Ever by Yahtzee from Zero Punctuation, not because of gameplay, but what they represent.

Probably going to end up the exact same way, the only difference is that Black Ops 2's competitor is Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier.

It just proves the people wrong that say CoD is dying. The people that aren't happy with it are a small minority of hardcore players. The vast majority are still well and truly in love with it.
