Over 25 Million Modern Warfare 2 Virtual Soldiers

Infinity Ward's Robert Bowling tweets about how many gamers are playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2: "...annnd we JUST hit 25 MILLION unique players on Modern Warfare 2. Insanity! Also, got a lot of #MW2 DLC details coming this week! FINALLY!" This is followed by a clarification: "That's 25 million unique across all platforms. Most on Xbox 360, then a close 2nd goes to PS3, will millions more on PC."

What makes me sadder is the average 4 to 1 player ratio of people playing MW2 compared to BC2 on steam. These are the true PC betrayers.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 - Multiplayer... live: 74,574 peak: 91,798
Battlefield: Bad Company 2... live: 15,709 peak: 26,596

MW2 is a Steamworks title so everyone all across the world playing it is counted there. BC2 is not a Steamworks titles, so who knows how many more than that are playing.

I know for some people Steam is PC gaming period, but the vast majority of sales still come from other retail avenues.

This news makes me sad. Why do so many people support featureless garbage? What makes me sadder is the average 4 to 1 player ratio of people playing MW2 compared to BC2 on steam. These are the true PC betrayers.

MW2 is just for children who like to think they are playing war games, Bad Company 2 is more for the hardcore gamer as the fx/atmophere is more realistic.

Ha ha ha IW! Now you see what happens when you don't listen to the "community that made you what you are"!

I guess we can start talking about going pc exclusive now, eh? Perhaps a free dedicated server for each pc gamer? No, like a real server rack!

WHY ARE YOU LAUGHING?!

I don't believe the numbers. Especially as it relates to the PC game. If there were that many people playing, there would be no waiting for games. Sorry, but this is all bluff and mirrors.

Sorry, Bad Company 2 is a better game. Better ballistics, better infantry combat, vehicle, destructible buildings, better maps and the list goes on. MW2 is obsolete. It will ride high on it's franchise name and nothing more. I know the truth hurts DanL but don't worry, you'll always have your cute little game with it's instantaneous bullet travel and no skill requirements. The world isn't lacking for casual FPS players after all.

The MW2 kids are my favorite BC2 players. I killed 6 of them up on the ridge in Arica Harbour last night...with the engineer repair tool!

After having played FPS games since Doom (which I loved, of course), I am absolutely sick of them. I simply don't care anymore about shooting people/space aliens. I think I must have killed millions of them. No sensory stimulation whatsoever. It feels like work after doing it over and over and over for so many years.

Whats left of the other genres of games are the same as well. If you have played the original C&C or Civilization, you have played every strategy game since. "Mine resources and feed yourself on your own you stupid ai bot!" I want to build cities and whatnot. Not micromanage them. Silly micromanagement = tedious work.

I recently finished Bioshock 1, and hated it. The developers ruined what would have been a game with a somewhat decent story with actual characters(!) by making it an old and busted, mindless, violent shooter.

Havent played MW2.
