Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Breaks GameStop Pre-Order Record

By Chris Faylor, Nov 03, 2009 8:26am PST Pre-orders for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 are "the highest for any title we've ever sold in our 6,200 store network," retailer GameStop has informed USA Today.

The impending blockbuster--Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare has sold over 13 million units, Call of Duty: World at War has now exceeded 11 million--has caused several other games to be delayed, including Call of Duty publisher Activision's own Singularity, as companies attempt to avoid going head-to-head with one of the year's biggest titles.

Infinity Ward's anticipated (and controversial) shooter sequel hits PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in exactly one week, on Tuesday, November 10. Various retailers are hosting midnight events to commemorate the release, including GameStop and Walmart.

  • Xbox Live MW2 menz,

    The day is almost here. Hostilities are set to commence shortly and to poor trash talking teens of Xbox Live will soon feel the full fury of the Shack Rape Squad. This is your team captain, DrCube, reminding all you 360 players that an Xbox Live gamertag has been created to coordinate the Xbox Live Modern Warfare 2 Shack Rape Squad. The friends list on this account will make it easier to find other shackers when it comes to mutliplayer matches or the Special Forces coop mode. The current player count stands at 60+ so there's still room for more gamertags. Post a reply or shackmessage me to get an invite.

    Original thread here:

    Dr. Alco already has a Steam group set up for the remaining few of you that still intend to buy the PC version.

    My copy isn't slated to arrive until the 16th-23rd and since that's very close to Thanksgiving I may not get my hands on the game until December. In my absence kodiak is second in command. Good luck and good hunting, gentleman. I'll look for you on the field.
