Modern Warfare 2 Multiplayer Preview »


Infinity Ward’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is still a week away from being released, but it's already breaking records. As USA Today reports, the game has set a new pre-order record at mega-retailer GameStop. No official numbers or info on the previous record-holder was released, but I’m waiting to hear back from GameStop. I’ll keep you posted.

Looking ahead to the game’s release, the retailer’s executive vice president for merchandising and marketing, Tony Bartel, also predicts that Modern Warfare 2 will be "the biggest entertainment launch of all time.” The current record holder is Rockstar Games’ Grand Theft Auto IV, which sold 3.6 million copies and brought in $310 million on launch day.

Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare sold around 2 million copies in its first month of release back in 2007, so it will be interesting to see what kinds of numbers the sequel does, since, basically, it will have to sell around twice as many copies in one day as the previous game sold in its entire first month of release. That would be mighty impressive, but if there was one title this holiday season capable of pulling that off, it would be this one.

Do you think Modern Warfare 2 will break GTA IV’s launch record, and become the biggest entertainment launch ever?
