Black Ops II pre-orders tripling 2010's Black Ops numbers

What do the numbers mean? Quite a lot, if we're talking about Black Ops II pre-orders. Amazon UK says Treyarch's near-future shooter has already tripled the number of pre-orders seen for Black Ops in 2010. It seems that a Call of Duty title is yet again going to be the year's leading release. 

"Set to be one of the biggest games of the year, it’s great to see so much enthusiasm and anticipation for Call of Duty: Black Ops II," said Amazon UK's Graham Chambers. "Bolder and better than before and with everything from a futuristic storyline through to single player mode, Zombies and multiplayer, Black Ops II promises something Call of Duty fans have never seen before."

It's funny that Chambers talks about enthusiasm, because if you believed the comments from the gamer community, this is the most hated and least popular franchise in the world, despite pre-orders and inevitable sales saying otherwise. It seems that, while gaming won't get its fabled Citizen Kane ... we've found its Twilight.
