Analyst: Blame CoD Decline on PC/Wii

Following up on a recent report that suggests sales of Call of Duty; Modern Warfare 3 are trailing behind those of Call of Duty: Black Ops, Gamasutra has a statement from an analyst blaming this on the game's afterthought platforms, the PC and Wii (thanks Joao). Word is: "Cowen's Doug Creutz said in his latest report that while life-to-date Modern Warfare 3 retail sales are indeed down 4.6 percent year-over-year compared to Black Ops, sales of the game on the Xbox 360 and PS3 platforms are actually slightly up year-over-year. However, large declines in sales of the versions of the game for Nintendo Wii, handheld platforms and PC have driven the overall decline, he suggests."

I actually liked MW2 accept for the lack of server support, BlOps ruined all the fun of unlocking weapons and attachments... But I still bought it for PC.

The reason I never even considered MW3 is all the DLC that was planned to come out... $60 bucks is enough, if you expect me to drop another $100+ for a few maps but the same gameplay your crazy!

And I get it, "you don't need to buy all the DLC". But if you don't you are fragmented from the larger community, and it may be a unnoticeable dent in their profits, but I refuse to support a company with that mind set.

Companies used to make games to make money but also to create a great game that will be remembered and cherished. Now its "How little can we give them and still justify the price, We need to save our ideas for next year" and it sickens me.
