Default Modern Warfare 2 sells "millions" on PC

http://www.joystiq.com/2010/03/09/mo...-bowling-says/

It's been in the Steam top sellers since it launched last year, so this is no surprise. The Xbox leads and the PS3 is second he says, but the PC version still sold millions already.

Let's assume it's 3 million, that equals $180,000,000. Not chump change, certainly.

Thats good for the PC Platform, shows signs that it can sell a good amount of units. Sadly few other titles would ever outsell MW2.

Bad Company 2 is doing well I assume, since we beat the other 2 platforms post-launch. Still, it's not GREAT news because it shows online games are the still the only ones really making a lot of money on PC, be it MMOs or online warfare.

It's singleplayer games we are seeing the death of.

Well they said that they have more players online on the PC then the consoles for BF:BC2 but I bet it sold more units on the consoles. Remember, online play still still not as big on the consoles as it is on the PC, it's still in its infancy.

That is likely to be solved by the 2nd update when we can make use of the dedicated BFBC2 PC servers.

btw: PC currently has more people playing and are in game servers than both the consoles.

Noticed on Kotaku that this post was taken the wrong way. The PC had more players than either console not more than both consoles combined. You'll need to work to beat both consoles combined effort

MW2 isn't as bad as most people put it out to be. That or I just really enjoy it so far. BF:BC2 is awesome as well. Both games deserve to be #1 spot contenders.

Yea, but its not an MMO and we dont have to pay monthly. I dont want them thinking that is the way to go, no way I'm paying monthly for any game.

+1, they are both really different games online too. MW2 is about fast reflexes as most of the combat is up close and personal. BF BC2 2 is alot more teamwork and wide open battles. Need to stay behind cover when moving, etc.

I really wish they would start selling the SP and MP parts separate at appropriate costs. Would really like to play Bad Company2 SP but I don't see the value at all in its current way of sale.

Sucks when the console guys can just rent it for $9 and play the SP.

The problem for me is that I have no interest in MW2 multiplayer, so until it goes on sale (sometime in 2015) it's not conveniently priced as a singleplayer campaign. BC2, at least, I stand a better chance of playing multiplayer - assuming it reminds me of BF1942.

It would have sold quite a lot more on PC if it had been shipped with dedi servers.
