Call of Duty: Black Ops II is Amazon's most pre-ordered videogame of all time

black ops 2 logoIt's not often that Amazon themselves toots their own horn regarding pre-order records for videogames, but today the company wanted to do a little bragging.

Call of Duty: Black Ops II is now officially Amazon's most pre-ordered game of all time… among all platforms. Not surprisingly, the previous record holder was CoD: Modern Warfare 3.

Maybe it had something to do with the various pre-order incentives that they have been running, which are also still in effect (check or link below) in case you were wondering.

Read on for the press release.

This week, Call of Duty: Black Ops II broke Amazon’s record for most pre-ordered video game of all time (of any platform), shattering a record previously held by its predecessor Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. The game will be released on November 13th; customers who pre-order the game from Amazon will receive an Amazon exclusive Kindle backstory, Rightful King, on villain Raul Menendez, the Nuketown 2025 bonus map and an Amazon exclusive Call of Duty: Black Ops II Wallpaper.
