Someones getting a nice bonus in the new year*








As long as you continue to work for Activision or Treyarch, if you leave, they'll sue your asses through the courts*

3arc's version of elite was always free and was called 'Combat Record' on BO1.

Isn't this the case almost every year? Not to say it's not true, but it's hardly surprising.

Why would they sue you for leaving, and what are you (*)linking to?

Yes but overall black ops 2 is tracking quite a bit less in the US compared to MW3 in the same period.

One retailer is not the whole picture. Still got in pre-ordered though :) Peer pressure and all. And that 20% tesco discount helped as well.

It's the same statement every year.Are there more people every year buying COD? I blame a lot of parents for buying little Timmy these games.

If Halo was multi platform we wouldn't be having this conversation today.

Nah Halo even on 360 doesn't sell as much as COD on that format.

Except Halo 3 which was up against the weak World at War..

All Halo's after have sold substantially less than the equivalent COD iteration. They will both sell like mad though but I prefer better games than yawnfest FPS games. Man shoot man games.

I prefer dwarf sexing up elf games ala Dragon age :)
