Huh, people wanted to play this game. Who knew?
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, an obscure first-person shooter by developer Infinity Ward and publisher Activision, has become Amazon.co.uk’s most pre-ordered game in the history of ever. It actually received 32% more pre-orders than Black Ops, proving that gamers have their priorities right in this economic climate.
The interesting thing is that this more or less proves that even with Battlefield 3 to give it tough competition, Call of Duty is still king of the hill and that Modern Warfare still gets more pre-orders (and presumably sales) than any other game franchise.
If this mostly unknown and surprise game interests you, and you happen to reside in the UK, then you can purchase it for £38.91 for Xbox 360 and PS3, and £34.91 for the PC. Alternately, you may invest £0 if you have certain eyepatch-wearing contacts. Go ahead, we won’t call the police.
