Gamestop’s executive vice president for merchandising and marketing Tony Bartel revealed that next week’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 will be a record-breaking one for his company, stating “the number of pre-order reservations we’ve taken for the game is the highest for any title we’ve ever sold in our 6,200 store network.”

I’m curious if these supposed numbers are really because of fan interest or because of Gamestop asking it’s customers to pre-order the HELL of it? Also, this is all well and good, but what’s the point of purchasing from a company that just wants you to trade the game in a month later anyway?
