Black Ops 2 Achieved The Highest Pre-Orders In GameStop History, Season Pass Could Come To Wii U

GameStop’s Company president Tony Bartel has announced that Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 has achieved the highest pre-orders in the company’s history. Bartel thinks that the popular first person shooter could genuinely be GameStop’s biggest game launch of all time.

“Consumer anticipation for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 is tremendous and the company is seeing the highest pre-orders in history.”

“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”.

Activision has also told online gaming publication CVG that its working alongside Nintendo with the possibility of releasing the Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 DLC Map Packs and the DLC Season Pass for the new gaming platform. This has yet to be confirmed though, and is currently in the planning stages.

  1. I admit to have purchased this for the Zombie Mode which I hear is quite robust and more involved this time around.

    Capcom lost my interest with RE5. Sad I have to go to CoD for some Zombie action.
    … And of course, I pre-Ordered ZombiU :D

  2. I’m sure that Activision wouldn’t screw Nintendo like Electronic Arts did with the Mass Effect franchise.

  3. It’s crazy how people claim that the CoD franchise gets worse and more watered down with each installment, yet their pre-orders grow shit-tons greater with each installment.

    Either Gamestop is talkin out their asses or people need to stop bein whiney posers and confess they love CoD

    1. Because the people that you see talking about CoD getting worse are mainly on the internet. Contrary to popular belief, the internet community of (vocal) gamers does not represent even close to half of the gamers worldwide.

    2. yes and crap music sells in the millions and people q to see shit films thats the issue sane folk surrounded with insane fuks

    1. Says it’ll focus on new third-party games.
      That’ll be interesting, if they announce either unannounced titles or new details on titles we already know about.
      I’d be psyched if they released Bayonetta 2 details….

      1. Nintendo is publishing Bayonetta, wouldn’t that make it second-party (not sure how these things work)? I hope we get a solid release date for the Wii U version of Aliens.

  4. War game fetish lives on strongly, I see.
    I’ll keep an eye on it and see what it’s all about later on, but it’ll have to do something really special to actually make me want to get it….

  5. You know what would be a fun DLC Map Package for Wii U version:
    -Peaches Castle
    -Kakariko Village
    -DK Jungle
    -Yoshi’s Island

    1. I dont really buy CoD…only CoD I owned was CoD2 on GC. But wow if they included those maps, or other nintendo themed maps for the WiiU version I will probably definitely get it lol.

    2. Kinda wished they had specific weapons only available in those areas too like:

      Peach’s Castle: Shell grenades
      Kakariko Village: Rupee cannon
      DK Jungle: Banana barrel cannon
      Yoshi’s Island: Yoshi egg launcher

    3. That is a disgusting idea and you, and everyone who agrees with you, should feel bad.
      Why would you want to taint those locations with COD bullshit?

  6. How interesting. I’ve played black ops before and it actually held my interest so I might invest in getting this game in the future for me Wii U

    1. Pre-Orders for software and hardware are completely different.

      Also, just because something sold out, that hardly means that it sold more. That just means that the supply that was allotted to each retailer had run out for the time being.

      Pre-Orders for games (unless it’s a limited edition) don’t really sell out because they’re also used as a gauge of how many games to print when it goes gold.

      The CoD franchise broke records in the past, I don’t see why it cant again. Does it mean that it will that record forever? Not necessarily.

  7. The only company that wasn’t polluted this DLC bullshit and now…. this.

    I don’t mind DLC that’s made after a game is released, but they stop development on a game because they feel the half ass game they have at the moment deserves 60$, and the rest is left out to squeeze more money.

    I have an issue with that shit.
