Analyst: Black Ops will sell 20 percent less than Modern Warfare 2
One analyst expects that Call of Duty: Black Ops will sell somewhere in the region of 20 percent less than Modern Warfare 2 did.
Doug Creutz of Cowan and Company has made his negative estimate despite Black Ops pre-orders outstripping that of Modern Warfare 2.
Creutz explained: "This includes an assumption that the upcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops comps negatively against last year's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, despite the fact that on several pre-release metrics cited by management Black Ops is tracking ahead of Modern Warfare 2. We think management's guidance implies Black Ops units down roughly 20 per cent versus Modern Warfare 2."
Call of Duty: Black Ops launches worldwide tomorrow on PC, PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii with a recommended retail price of 54.99 GBP.
