Black Ops could out perform MW2

Written by David Stellmack


Activision excited at pre-order pace
Despite all of the drama surrounding Activision and Infinity Ward, Call of Duty: Black Ops looks to be ahead of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2; at least if you are going by the pace of the number of pre-orders. Sources tell us that Activision is increasing their estimated sales numbers for Black Ops, which is set to be released this holiday season.

The Treyarch-developed Call of Duty title has Activision excited, as retailers are reporting significant pre-order bookings for the title. Our sources tell us that it is possible that Black Ops could sell as many as 12 million copies before the end of the year and the number could go even higher.

In the past the Infinity Ward-produced titles have outsold the Treyarch-developed titles, but retailers as well as several analysts are expecting things to be a lot closer this time around. “It would seem that players are attracted to what they have seen so far from Black Ops, and Treyarch might have gotten it right this time around; and while sales might not surpass Modern Warfare 2, it is possible that they could. This isn’t something that we would have thought possible prior to E3,” one analyst who wished to remain anonymous told us.

I can hear the noise of the lag switch industry collapsing.

I dont really see this game would have any problems defeating Modern Warfare 2 in popularity. In my opinion, cod4 is still the strongest game from them.

I'd say there's a lot of interest (not from everyone) in COD Black Ops due to the effort put into MW2. I enjoyed playing both of them and COD 4 definitely drove me to buying MW2 however credit should also go to the game itself - I enjoy it everytime I play it. Seemed to be some decent decisions behind it, it may have used an older graphics engine but atleast the masses can play it with some older hardware in uncertain economic times.. I could not say I am expecting the same for Crysis 2...
