Like others have said, selling a lot doesn't mean its good. Many people overlook the fact that its all down to marketting. Activision being Activision usually spend more money on sales and marketting their cod games than the actual development of it. With enough going into marketting one can sell anything to anyone.
In my first job i worked for a major sales company. Ive actually witnessed a guy sell a cable tv package to an old lady who admitted she never watches tv and is probably half blind.
Cod has got to the stage where they could make any sub-standard game and regardless of if its actually good or not, it will sell because of it's name! Its sad to see a once great franchise get to that state.

Leave EA alone!! They are in much crap as it is, I don't want some of my favourite games that are with EA (unfortunately) to never give a crap about gamers! :'(

Are you crazy? I love EA. Got Vietnam for 75% off :3
Activision didn't put anything on sale except Modern Warfail, and it's not what you call a "sale" price anyway :|. EA > Activision.

I see a desperate company who is trying to hold as tight as they can to the "title", but eventually the streak is going to end.

They messed up with all the things that happend right after mw2 was launched.'

Now they see that they are going down, so the money hungry bastards is trying their best to stay on top.

Look at all the major companies . There are no limit to MAX their income. They only care about making more and ALOT more money. I dont think they got a number in their head that they wanna reach. And ofc IF someone is making a better product then them, they try to shut them down, how? sue them and and make them look like the badguy. Do I hear a Boycott?
