I'm going to be waiting. We have no clue what were getting in terms of features or graphics. It's quite possible it might not even be worth the $50 being asked if to much is cut. This would be the version I get first as I have a problem with buying PC games for $60 and that would be the only other version I'd get.
Having bought the previous few I have little chance not to think this won't be just as good and better. This is the console's last COD and Treyarch has said they want to go out with a bang, no pun intended. I will not be waiting but have it pre-ordered already.
It is a shame the Wii version always gets shafted in terms of promotion and everything, most retailers have no idea it exists. People can come on and say Wii is not a real console or whatever but in the end the fact remains it was never really given a fair chance at this series. COD3 was ported over with terrible controls and stripped of any multiplayer... how is that for a first impression especially when you compare it to Black Ops how many years later with a far deeper online then most people thought possible on the console. As usual it has been a major pain to even pre-order the game now I have to wait and see if I actually get it. As with black ops I had to go up to the counter to see if they had it in their system as posters, pre-order cards, ads, etc all fail to mention it coming out on the system. Last year I went to a few places and successfully pre-ordered at Blockbuster only to go the day it released to find out they weren't even getting it in for Wii. It seems a little extra would go a long way and why they chose to center the marketing on people who have the highest chance of already knowing everything about it anyway is beyond me. An extra 3 letters, another pre-order barcode, it's not much considering you could increase your profits and the franchise is one of the few 3rd party franchises on the console to have had 1 million+ every single time with no struggle what-so-ever.
I wouldn't pre order right right now. I would wait a few more days at least. I think there is about 16 days till the release. Maybe they'll show some footage. Most likely not since they didn't for Modern Warfare Reflex or Black ops. But hey you never know...also Amazon usually has the best deals on things when they're about to be released. You can probably get a bonus gift card or an extra. So wait a few days. I would
