Love them or not, this is why yearly installments of games will never go away.
People are excited about 'Call of Duty: Black Ops II.' Really excited. So excited that the day-one Amazon preorders for the game are ten times the day-one preorders for the first game. 'Black Ops II' isn't out yet, but it's safe to say that Activision is already happy with the results.
When compared to 'Modern Warfare 3,' 'Black Ops II' beats it by around 30%. Considering that 'Modern Warfare 3' is the most preordered game of all time on Amazon, that's a good sign of what's to come.
