Default will Modern Warfare 2 become the highest selling game ever?

http://xbox360.ign.com/articles/101/1017295p1.html
They're saying this due to the many ppl who are reserving a copy now; which is what the article says.
it might get up there but i dunno if it'll be the highest.
what was the highest selling game? one of the Halo games?

Yep. Wii Sports is a sure-fire winner, due to being packed in with a MASSIVELY successful system. The games shipped with the console still count as sales, I believe, so Wii Sports is a juggernaut.

At this point I've gotten so cynical about the popularity of the FPS genre that I'm convinced COD: MW2 could sell for $300 retail and people would just sell their infant sister to get their hands on it.

It doesn't have the massive casual audience of Wii Sports, but everybody went insane over COD4, so with a multi-platform release it wouldn't surprise me if it beat Halo numbers.

I'm still hoping to be surprised by zombies. They've had to see how successful WaW was with this game mode.

I doubt it. The only reason why Treyarch added the whole Nazi Zombie mode was because WaW was too similar to MW (in terms of gameplay, and modes). They needed something "extra".

No chance whatsoever. Even if you throw out bundled games from consideration.

If this sells more than GTA: San Andreas which is sitting at 20+ million, color me shocked.
