According to reports from insider videogame news site IndustryGamers, the imminent November 10 release of Modern Warfare 2 is causing American retailer GameStop to experience the largest pre-order demand in its history.
GameStop, which operates over 6,200 stores and also owns the EB Games and Micromania brands, said that they received "more pre-orders on this game than all of the games that were sold system-wide globally on the last Call of Duty ( World at War) in its first month. This is clearly going to be the biggest entertainment release of our history."
Modern Warfare 2 is released worldwide for Xbox 360, PC, and PlayStation 3 with a multitude of retail options available starting from $59.99 / €59.99 / £54.99. There are also companion versions being made available for Nintendo Wii and Nintendo DS.
