Activision sells 18 million map packs for last year’s shooter; Modern Warfare 3 preorders to break Black Ops’ record “by a significant margin”; Elite pricing to make it a “no-brainer” for fans.

 

Activision’s Call of Duty XP fan convention doesn’t kick off until tomorrow, but company executives gathered on the site of the event today to give analysts an update on the business behind its first-person shooter series. During the event, Activision Publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg revealed a number of stats to underscore both the size of the Call of Duty fan base and its willingness to pay for more of the series.

Hirshberg said to date, Call of Duty: Black Ops players have combined to purchase 18 million map packs for the game. Since the game launched, Activision has released four separate map packs, each with a price point. The post-release content has pushed the average amount spent on the game to per user, Hirshberg said, enough to buy the game and a map pack at full price and then some.

By comparison, the average Modern Warfare 2 player spent roughly on the game, while Activision pegged the average for Call of Duty: World at War players at . (World at War map packs cost each instead of the commanded by its successors’ add-ons.)

Successful as Black Ops has been, Activision has even higher hopes for November’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. Hirshberg said the game is posting record preorders and that Activision expects it to break the record set by Black Ops “by a significant margin.” To help boost that margin, Activision is supporting Modern Warfare 3 with what Hirshberg said is the largest marketing campaign in the company’s history.

Hirshberg also touched on Call of Duty: Elite, the social service surrounding Modern Warfare 3. While he didn’t say how much Elite’s premium-tier service would cost, Hirshberg said it would be priced to be “a no-brainer to the community.” It won’t just be the hardcore crowd that gets into Elite, he suggested. According to Activision’s internal research, 25 percent of Call of Duty players who don’t buy downloadable content expressed a strong interest in Elite’s premium-tier service.

Yu-Gi-Oh! Nightmare Troubadour (Nintendo DS)

Yu-Gi-Oh! Nightmare Troubadour marks the first appearing of the famed duelling game on Nintendo DS. Recreating the many intricacies of the trading card game, where players use monster, trap and spell cards to defeat their opponents in a series of duels, Nightmare Troubadour also makes full use of the Nintendo format`s capabilities. The dual-screen and stylus-based touch-screen elements provide a perfect basis for the duelling action, with players organising their decks using the stylus, with the monsters brought to vivid life in real-time reaction to the cards that are drawn. To this end, the bottom screen presents an uncluttered 2D view of the cards, with Nightmare Troubadour including recreations of over 1000 of the latest and greatest cards. As players organise their decks to block and counter attacks, so these battles are shown on the top screen in 3D sequences. Yu-Gi-Oh! Nightmare Troubadour also makes extensive use of the hardware`s wireless connectivity. With Yu-Gi-Oh! very much a social phenomenon, this is reflected in the Nintendo DS game which allows players to embark on two-player duels against likeminded friends. The wireless system facilitates full games against each other, but can also be used to trade cards.
