Forums - Sony Discussion - COD fatigue finally settling in? Black Op2 USA pre-orders significantly behind MW3.

Is COD fatigue finally settling in?  The USA preorders for BO2 Xbox360 is significantly pacing behind MW3.  Looking at the current trajectory, the BO2 xbox360 pre-orders could be about a million less than MW3 xbox360 on release day.    The PS3 BO2 is a little behind MW3.  Is COD finally going the route of Guitar Hero?  Will COD 2013 sell much less? Gamestop says Black Ops 2 is heading toward the biggest launch, so this website data could be undertracked?

Many are waiting for Wii U pre-orders of it.

To put it simple:

Halo 4 - Undertracked
Black Ops 2 - Undertracked
Assassin's Creed 3 - Undertracked



I hope so, its success encourages developer laziness by demonstrating that copypasta sells.

Bet with fatslob: Watch Dogs on Wii U will be technically worse than on PS3/360
Bet with mZuzek: Zelda Wii U will run at 720p (He says 1080p)

16 October: GameStop president Tony Bartel revealed the news...“Consumer anticipation for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 is tremendous. We are seeing the highest pre-orders in history,” he said. “With its current pace, this Call of Duty is on track to break records and is likely to be our biggest game launch of all time.”



Don't trust VGC on pre-order figures lately.

I would love it if this were to happen then maybe all those "hardcore gamers" will fade away, but VGC numbers have been very sketchy as of late so I wouldn't put to much stock in it...

also...why is this in the Sony section?

I wouldn't go off VGC sale figures or Preorder for accuracy over the last year. They contradict a lot of press releases. Just waait for the companies to tell us. Then either believe them or VGC.
