Amazon: Black Ops 2 day one pre-orders higher than Black Ops, Modern Warfare 3

4.8
Amazon's pre-order numbers indicate Activsion's Call of Duty gravy train is still going full steam. Earlier today, Amazon UK told MCV that Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 pre-orders were three times higher than its predecessor, Black Ops, two years ago. We wanted to know if that anticipation crossed the pond.

"Pre-orders from day one of Black Ops 2 were more than ten times the amount of pre-orders for the first Black Ops on its first day of availability," Amazon US told Joystiq this afternoon, but that's not all the buzz.

"Black Ops 2 even out pre-ordered the first day of availability for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 by more than 30 percent. Modern Warfare 3 currently holds the record for the most pre-ordered game of all time and was amongst the top 20 pre-orders ever on Amazon.com, including books and movies."

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 went on to gross over $775 million globally in five days, flying past Call of Duty: Black Ops' $650 million record and the $550 million record before it, set by Modern Warfare 2.

Ska It only sold more pre-orders then the previous game because it is the next installment. The more games they make means more costumers. This has nothing to do with the changes in the games.
Not true, you cannot say a 30% increase is only because it's the next installment in CoD. MW3 didn't get a 30% increase from MW2 or even Black Ops from WaW. The reason it's such a high increase is because of actual fans who wanted to buy the game not just because it's the next installment.


MW2 got a 20% increase from Cod4. You know how many people bought Mw3 and hasn't even played any other CODs?

TTG_NEM3SIS Only if Activision could use the money to make a game alot better from the last instead of making them worse yearly.
Infinity Ward is worse.
