Hey, buddy -- how're you feeling
? Perhaps a little fatigued, due to your late-night odyssey to your local games retailer to grab a hot and fresh copy of Call of Duty: Black Ops
? According to GameStop merchandising senior VP Bob McKenzie, you probably did just that. In a recent interview with Gamasutra
, McKenzie explained that he's "convinced it'll be the biggest launch that we've ever had, that the industry has ever seen."
McKenzie attributes his claim to the unprecedented number of pre-orders the game has pulled in, as well as a general consumer interest shown by GameStop shoppers. He added, "I think it's a loyal fanbase for the franchise and [Activision has] done a great job of really getting out in front of it and really making this an event." Yeah, like a gamer holiday!
