Retailers Report CoD: Modern Warfare 3 Pre-Orders Up “Significantly” From Black Ops

Can Infinity Ward reclaim the “best selling CoD” title from Treyarch?

Both GameStop and UK video game retailer Game have reported that they are receiving more pre-orders for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 than they did for last year’s smash hit Black Ops (for the same time period last year). Neither company would state exactly how many more pre-orders they are getting, but Game described it as being “significantly” larger.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 pre-orders are already tracking significantly ahead ofCall of Duty: Black Ops at the same time last year. We know that the Call of Duty brand and franchise has the most amazing fan-base and we’ve got some great surprises lined up for those who pre-order with us. We’re looking forward to an incredible launch on November 8.” – Game Group’s Tom Devine

I’m not going to claim to be 100% right on this, but I have a feeling that MW3 will fall short of Black Ops’ LTD sales when all is said and done. If I’m wrong I’ll admit it, but it’s just a feeling that I can’t shake.
