Wedbush Morgan analyst Michael Pachter believes global sales of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 will "exceed $500 million in the first week following launch".

In his Activision Blizzard Q3 Preview, Pachter also estimated that the highly anticipated title will "easily sell 10 million units in Q4 [Oct-Dec]"

Speaking on GT's Bonus Round last month, Pachter said that with the right marketing the title could achieve Q4 sales of up to 14 million units.

"Last year sold about 8 million in the Christmas quarter, I think most people think this will do 10-12. It really depends on marketing - if they blitz the airwaves and we see ads on every basketball game, football game, college football game, every beauty pageant … maybe 14," said Pachter.

What's wrong with Pachter? He doesn't ask that his opinions are spread across the internet, we handle that for him. All he does is his job, nothing more.

And yes, 10m copies is a safe bet for 09.

The game has caused spamming of in boxes on xbox & more recently ps3 mths b4 it came out which has heiped advertise this title .Mw2 is one of the most anticipated games of the current gen as well as being the highest priced lol. That aside the replay value of the cod franchise on & offline has really what has got ppl hyped with new spec ops which was mentioned on podcast is a good 20/30 hrs of play . I would be suprised if this doesn't hit the 20 million units by end of jan 2010 especially now MAG is delayed though i personally preying a jan sale special @£35 will get me to buy a copy.

I already like pre-ordered 4 copies lol.. jk. Modern Warfare 2 is going to be great. new story, maps, weapons and updated graphics is a welcome to us COD fans.. Don't expect any BIG changes tho. It's most likely like COD4 with those changes I mention above!!!

2 of the most boring things in gaming combined, Pachter and MW2.
