In a previous article, Patrick Sodurlund, executive vice president for EA Games (who was previously a Battlefield producer at DICE ), has publicly stated that EA won’t rest until its shooter is in the top spot. “I am not going to give up until I’m No.1 and I am going to make sure I’m No.1.”.

We’re all pulling for you Mr. Sodurlund.

    The only problem is Cod Ghosts at the top.

    • Nox

      COD:Ghost might win in sales, BUT it will never win in quality.

    As TotalBiscuit more than once said: “Pre-ordering only leads to more bad business practise by developers/publishers.” People should have the guts to say NO to pre-order bonuses and wait for final release, reviews, etc. The more people pre-order games the more publishers and retailers throw that EXCLUSIVE nonsense at us.
