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!

Didn't MW2 and BLOPS have tons of DLC too?

Pretty sure of it. I think I have 6.5 days in MW3 multiplayer right now. No plans to buy any DLC - don't need new maps. I'm getting better every day and my K:D ratio is rising rapidly. If I only game for about 30 minutes it's much easier to do 3 rounds of this than half of a Skyrim mission, or start something entirely new, so I just keep falling back to it. I really expected about 18 hours out of multiplayer, but mowing people down is oddly satisfying.

Yeah, there's mild fragmentation, but those buying the DLC tend to be the most committed and best players. Weeding them out via DLC just means it's even easier to mop the floor with the remains.
