Gamestop: Modern Warfare 2 could be biggest game of all time


It's no secret that people are putting a lot of stock in Infinity Ward's Modern Warfare 2. Evil publisher Activision believes it will dominate this holiday season, and retail chain GameStop agrees, going so far as to say that the shooter could become the biggest game in history.

"We expect Modern Warfare 2 could be the best selling title of all time," says Tony Bartel, EVP of Merchandising and Marketing. He points out that pre-orders for the game have been incredibly strong, and that many customers upgraded their base copies to the Prestige Edition once it was announced, which is a "very good sign."

Bartel has also named Halo 3: ODST and Assassin's Creed 2 as two other titles he believes will drive videogame sales through the holidays. Both will likely do incredibly well, but let's face it, with most big games being pushed back 2010, there's not much competition left.
