Gamestop Says Black Ops Pre-orders Are Exceeding Those of Modern Warfare 2
Years ago back in July of 2010, we heard that the newly 3D Black Ops was outpacing Modern Warfare 2 in pre-orders. Today, we hear that Black Ops is keeping up that torrid pace as we approach the game‘s release date. This comes from Gamestop themselves. From Gamestop’s high-up guy Bob McKenzie:
GameStop is tracking to all-time, record reservations on Call of Duty: Black Ops. We are ahead of where we were with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 last year, which previously set the industry standard.
He didn’t give any actual numbers, but that’s beside the point. The point is that Black Ops is tracking to be the biggest game release of all time, even if, as our previous report stated, it may not reach the total number of copies that Modern Warfare 2 sold. Halo: Reach is gonna be small fries come November 9.
