Modern Warfare 3 pre-orders at 9 million?

Written by David Stellmack

Analysts say it could be that high

While Activision is not talking numbers yet, Analysts that we spoke with tell us that retailers could have as many 9 million copies of Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 pre-ordered. If that isn’t enough, several analysts suggest that the first day of sales could top 6 million worldwide, with 9 million sold by the end of the week. If this comes to pass, it will be the fastest selling game ever released.

An analyst we spoke with says that by the time the dust settles he fully expects Activision to sell between 27 and 30 million copies of the game, which is more than the two previous releases in the franchise. Activision is said to be prepared for the sales, and retailers should have plenty of copies to fill all of their pre-orders and enough extra for those who didn’t pre-order.

It isn’t clear how much impact Battlefield 3 will have on Modern Warfare 3 sales. Several retailers we spoke with expected to see a lot of copies traded in for Modern Warfare 3. “Let them trade in Battlefield for Modern Warfare 3, as we still have plenty of customers looking for used copies of Battlefield 3 despite the use of its online pass,” one retailer told us.

MW3 is so over rated... I don't know why anyone bothers with that game. Mabye if they were still in development with mw2 and not release a game every single year... needs a longer development time!

You coudnt be any more wrong, not only is each CoD title 2 years in development, this one had 3 (Infinity Ward, Sledgehammer Games, Raven Software) studio's working on it over that time. unlike Battlefail with 1 studio pussing out a half backed title every year.

yes every year.... lets turn this into a flame war, BF3 is different from previous battlefield games, while MW3 is (based on the trend since COD4) going to be the exact same.

Yes, yes, by all means sheople, give Activision mountains of cash to reward them for the new pay for DLC model that gives zero real support to the mod or dedi- server community.

Eventually, you'll have to pay $9.95 a month to log onto their servers, $14.95 for a couple of maps, and $69.95 for each expansi... er I mean new release.

You couldn't be more wrong. I counted at least 5 different developers and all had their own story lines etc...

That's a VERY good and true fact. I like it so far. Different doesn't always have to be good, however I never really used to be a BF fan until now. I played World at War, and MW3 and BO, but now that I've tried BF3, I do not, in the foreseeable future want to ever go back. :)
