Or something like that. ?
The latest COD has been out for what a little over a month now and has made more than $1BILLION in sales and I highly doubt Bad Company 2 has made that much to date even with it being out a long time before COD.

IM NO FANBOY just don't like seeing fanboys through around facts that are just opinion as compared to actuall fact. I enjoy both games with no real preference but sales figures don't lie. The rest of the world doesn't seem to agree with you (although plenty of people do)

Brittany Spears sells more albums than any decent artist out there, doesn't mean her music is better.

He said it was utter crap, not that it didn't sell well.

Yeah, there are a lot of computers sold every year, that doesn't mean they are good. Similarly a lot of people eat bagels every day, but everyone knows bagels suck amirite?

West & Zampella were the two main dev's behind MW and MW2. I thought they were fired by Activision also?

Anyway I guess Activision is worried that since they are under EA now that this will cut into their COD sales in the future so they are trying to subvert them with litigation.

Yes, this is what i was thinking. They are worried that these guys can make a game to compete against call of duty. And they should be considering they made the best call of duty game ever in call of duty 4. They know the formula for success. Treyarch basically copied West and Zampellas gameplay with world at war and black ops. Before cod4 treyarch didnt make a great call of duty game IMO

The only COD Treyarch made BEFORE WaW was COD3, and that was the worst of them all. COD2 however, is the best of the series by far.

It doesn't really matter, Activision is becoming too large to manage itself, and soon it'll fall just like other gaming giants have.
