    This game is actually amazing! I'm a 21 year old female and in NO WAY am I a geek at all, but I love playing this game! Give it a chance Perez!

    Wowzers! Does that include theatrical single day box office? That's amazing! We have the game and it's okay. See what happens when Kobe Bryant and Jimmy Kimmel are your pitch men?

    Re: highboo – Correction: my teenager tells me it's "pretty good".

    Yes the game really is that good. What a silly question it's CoD……

    You know why it made that much? Because the PC version of Modern Warfare was so shittily put together, rushed, without the option for dedicated servers so it was a hacker's paradise… they fired the designers of that game and redid it completely. Then they told all the PC complainers that they weren't getting their money back and had to pay full price for Black Ops. That's why. I love my COD, but that was bullshit.

    I'm not a geek and I occasionally play video games. What happened to you not bullying people? Why are you attaching an unnecessary stigma to a group of people. You, as a gay man, should be more considerate. Grow up.

    Yes its that good. Im a 30 yrs old wife to 2 kids and when they go to sleep me and my husband play. Its a great stress reliever. hahahah AND AGAIN YES ITS THAT GOOD!

    Since when do you gotta be a geek to play video games? video game sales trump all entertainment media sold at stores, sounds like the majority to me. I also online game with girls and some are even better than me.

    I think the sales are because of the hype behind it…they had a previous game that was super popular so I think people bought it because of the previous' games popularity. I think they sold a little more than expected but I think they knew it was going to sell bigger. Besides, who's to really say that in 5-15 days from now the customers will be trying to sell it to Gamestop or something.

    I play and i love my hello kitty playcard i made on it! and we waited in line at walmart not in the cold outside of gamestop muahaha

    Wow, you're retarded. Being a geek has nothing to do with video games. I think the term you're looking for is gamers.



  15. 15

    I bought it too!!! i love it!



  16. 16

    they do charge you 60 buck for each one…

    COD is amazing, and I agree that you should probably refrain from using words like "geek." Or is it okay to make fun of people, just as long as they are not gay? Love you Perez, but you shouldn't be such a hypocrite.

    This is the game that stole our boyfriends, the only way to get them back is to join them… and become an addict. I'm getting better.



  21. 21

    LOL, this proves that piracy doesn't destroy the media-sales.. This has been out on torrent sites for days, but people will still buy the original if it's good..
