Where are you getting the "sold more copies" info from?...does that include returns and refunds and the price of three games that was the "care package edition"?

I mean check out amazon and the game is now selling for $10 dollars less...your telling me that is a good sign that 3 WEEKS after release a big name game like this has dropped in price by $10 dollars??

There are no refunds for games and returns don't count towards anything.

I just checked some articles and you're right about that. It seems like sales have picked up while early articles from just a few weeks ago claimed that it failed to beat MW3's first week.

I think that being on the Xbox 360 as well as being an "old game" is what can be killing the series.

I understand completely how someone can get tired of the same game on an old console.

They could be holding onto the franchise until the 720 (whatever) comes out.

What I find comical is the people talking about "Modern Warfare 4". First of all, the series of MW ended with MW3 being the resolution to the plot of Captian Price and Mackrov, for the IW, Sledgehammer and Ravensoft contingent to attempt to bridge upon that would be very unstable, and albeit, slightly dumb. The idea of future and present day warfare has had is fun in the sun for the Call of Duty franchise, perhaps this could be a benificial time to explore something slightly different.

Black Ops 3 is another rather radical assumption. With all the downfalls the current game has, who's to say Treyarch will still stand behind the Call of Duty franchise in the near future, or will they want to for that matter. When MW3 was coming out, the whole company looked in dissaray, and now, that we have our 2012 COD release, the future is uncertian and foggy. Any money, Call of Duty ends here, with us left to pick up the pieces from this long drawn, expertly marketed and made series, which has provided nearly over a decade of entertainment. I look to Relic and Dice to continue the Modern Warfare contingent of gaming. Call of Duty is loved, but like all games, will one day be put on the shelf.

I hope there isn't an MW4, but I wouldn't put it past the suits at Activision to push for a Modern Warfare 4, since MW3 sold so well.

Leaks suggest that it will be MW4 and Price will still be the main man.

To be honest, I actually like BO2 for the most part however I don't find it worthy of best shooter or multiplayer compared to the some of the other titles that have released this year. (i.e. Borderlands 2)

Activision will keep bragging about their sales so gaining no awards from the VGA won't really matter to them.
