Will MW2 be the best selling game...EVER?

If you put any weight in Gamestop's Executive VP, Tony Bartel, then MW2 just may smash records and be the best-selling title of all time.

That's what Mr. Bartel told his share-holders recently when speaking at their quarterly earnings report. That may be a tough feat given the wildly popular Nintendo title, Wii Play has reached over 11 million copies sold in the US. If we're counting bundled titles, Wii Sports is sitting at 24 million copies in the US alone.

That's a lot of Modern Warfare to move, but it's definitely attainable. With the current state of the economy, many gamers are purchasing less games while waiting for "the one". If MW2 is to be "the one" for most of you, this could certainly be the biggest title the gaming industry has ever seen. It wouldn't hurt if we all had a little more change in our pockets though.
