It amazes me that mediocre games do so well in the mainstream. Call of Duty MW has great single player play, but the stories are too short and the multiplayer is mediocre at best. I can't believe it sells so well.
Well since each game cost $60 and a movie ticket costs 10 or less, takes a lot less to make more in the video game industry I would. guess. Still a awesome feat. I am sure this great reception economically will give them reason to ignore the cries of failure from the PC gaming community.
A video game has conquered the entertainment industry, gosh I thought it was pirates that were crippling the gaming market. I hope the other gaming companies are taking notes, if you create a good quality franchise you'll make some serious $$$.
[citation][nom]_cubase_[/nom]I see the so called "boycott" worked like gangbusters.[/citation]
Sales breakdown in the UK:
XBox - 57%
PS3 - 40%
PC - 3%
PC Boycott working as intended. For every 1 person who does not purchase this game for PC, you are hurting Activison/IW. If you think they are okay with their sales figures, you are dead wrong. The potential to make more money will ALWAYS drive companies to do just that, therefore each dollar they missed out on, hurts them.
That being said, the massive sales were to be expected. The PC marketshare could have been 10% though.
I won't pay for this game no way and i am on a PC.we also need to think of boycotting Hollywood.I no longer buy any new films nor will i be after all the greedbag things hollywood has been doing pertaining to the internet and the SOC BS Stuff among other reasons.
