Well for the legions of people why can't run BF1942
probably don't mind. You can sell much more to a lower common denominator.
What I want to know is how many of those people haven't bought Half-Life
yet. I mean, the original game can still be had for like $30 or less (non-precious metal versions) and you can just download the mods for free.
How many copies could Counter-Strike
have possibly sold
? Maybe that's what's really going on here - Counter-Strike
performed like a dog at retail and Sierra passed on DoD
. I wonder what Activision is thinking then?
