I need to get mine pre-ordered. You get the code for the American baseball bat for pre-ordering through Gamestop. Those extras promotions always get me.

Yep. I'm getting both. I skipped L4d, but I'm getting 2 on day 1 just like MW2.

But let's be real, there's going to be more people playing W@W than L4D2. And that's just the older COD.

Doubt it. I really dont see many going back to COD4, COD WaW no time soon if at all. L4D2 has a pretty nice following and will have folks active moreso than COD4 or COD WaW. Achievements is the only reason I can see someone playing WaW. Might wanna get those zombie achievements, prestige once, those challenges in co op missions. Stuff like that.

Better question, why would anyone like gamestop?

-pennies on the dollar for your used games/systems.
-pricing.
-poor promotions (even though the in game content exclusive to gamestop preorders aren't my thing, check out the modern warfare2 promotion)

So? I don't like CoD.

1. I never buy used games or systems. Besides, everywhere you go that buys used games will give you pennies on the dollar.
2. The pricing on new games are the same as anywhere else(not including Amazon and other online stores).
3. The promotions are a nice extra if you already plan on buying the game. Why not pre-order it to get an extra weapon, character, or something else?

I see a lot of Gamestop hate. I suppose it has to deal with the used games/systems, which is probably why I have no issue. I just go to Gamestop whenever they have a promotion for a game I want to buy new.

That's your opinion, fact is, the L4D franchise has never put a dent in the big 3(Halo3,CODW@W,COD4). Even when the title was new the activity reports have still been H3, CODW@W, Gears and COD4. W@W is going to get the same treatment as COD4. Which is, despite there being a newer version of the title out, there's still going to be thousands of players playing the older version. W@W probably averages 90,000 players a day. L4D or L4D2 would kill for those numbers.
