Black Ops will still outsell Reach

Written by David Stellmack

Multiplatform is the only advantage needed
While Halo: Reach is burning up the sales charts, it seems that many are wondering if it will turn out to be the most successful game of the year with the highest sales. Top analysts are agreeing with us that the one advantage that Call of Duty: Black Ops has over Halo: Reach is the only one it will likely need to achieve the better sales numbers: Black Ops is multiplatform and being released on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC platforms.

The fact that Black Ops is a multiplatform release is clearly an advantage that Microsoft and Bungie didn’t enjoy with the exclusive release of Reach on the Xbox 360 only. While the sales of the two titles might be a bit closer than expected in total, there is pretty much no question that Reach will become the highest selling Xbox exclusive title in the history of the console.

We do believe that Reach will likely outsell Black Ops on the Xbox 360 platform; but once you add in the numbers for the PlayStation 3 and PC sales, it is easy to see that Black Ops will outsell Reach in total.

Blah blah blah. While I hate Activision as much as the next guy, you probably said the same thing about MW2 and their IW "servers". And still look @ it. Most played Steam game STILL.

BTW, has anyone noticed the new modes in the game are all based on CS/CSS mods? And they call them 'community ideas'. They should call them CS(S) ideas!

I'm gonna stick with SP and maybe some MP on vCod 1.5, or more specifically "when it was truly a game"

But don't listen to me, I'm old and still waiting for HL3. Gabe Newell may you rot in hell you fat bastard.

Well that totally depends on whether or not the game is any good.
