Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Reflex's Amazon.com sale rank is #258 and the current selling price is $40.54.
This is the first week that I have reported the play-time data on both of these games, that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Reflex has more players reporting play-time data on the Wii's Nintendo Channel, than The Conduit does.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Reflex now has approximately 2,261 more players reporting data than The Conduit, and has 2,236,924 more game-play hours reported than The Conduit.
As for the Amazon.com sale rank of The Conduit being so low, the game is still currently only available from 3rd Party Vendors on Amazon.com, as I reported back on June 13.
When I contacted Amazon.com about it today, they said to just keep checking the product's page for any updates, but wouldn't specify if they are still carrying the game itself.
If you own either Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Reflex or The Conduit, are you looking forward to the "sequels" for both games releasing later this year?
I don't own Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Reflex or The Conduit(anymore), but I am interested in both sequels.
I am really interested in Call of Duty: Black Ops, because Treyarch seems to have done the online really well in the two past Call of Duty games on the Wii; while Conduit 2 looks like it should be an improvement over the first in most areas, though I'm approaching it more cautiously.
If you are interested in either Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Reflex or The Conduit, you can see prices for them on Amazon.com below:
Even though Treyarch has earned my trust, one CoD game is enough for me so I have 0 interest in Black Ops.ReplyDelete
GoldenEye on the other hand has my attention.
As does Conduit 2, since the first is great and the 2nd sounds so much better with on/offline multi-player and co-op.
Wii is finally starting to get great FPS and say what you want about TCon, I think it really set the standard.
So is that why you're posting from an anonymous name?
Anyways, in short, i'm excited for Conduit 2. I have no interest in a new COD game, considering we haven't even got Modern Warfare 2 yet. Goldeneye is made for us, and Wii owners would be crazy to pass on it in favor of Black-Ops.
You own COD:MWR? I purchased COD:WaW, but still haven't played COD:MWR, though I want to play it.
I am interested in Call of Duty: Black Ops, Conduit 2, and Goldeneye, as I think they are all their own type of FPS.
"Wii is finally starting to get great FPS and say what you want about TCon, I think it really set the standard."
I think TCon set the standard for controls in Wii FPS games, but COD:WaW showed how to do online right in Wii FPS games.

If you could explain your thought in full, that would be great; I'm removing it though, as it doesn't really add anything to the conversation.
Thank you both for taking the time to comment!
We must have been posting at the same time!
I don't think the lack of Modern Warfare 2 though is Treyarch's fault, but more along the lines that Infinity Ward didn't want to make the game on the Wii.
Treyarch has supported the Wii, whereas Infinity Ward didn't with anything they made...Treyarch is the company that ported COD:MWR over to the Wii.
Goldeneye is interesting, and considering that I enjoyed the last game with Goldeneye in its name; I will probably enjoy this one as well.
Conduit 2 has me interested, as I like the idea of more boss battles and different locations that look more "open".
Thanks for the comment!
Order of sales prediction. Black Ops 1st, Goldeneye and then Conduit 2.ReplyDelete
People are saying they will give Conduit a second chance, but I doubt it. The Conduit was all hype and no return value. Black Ops will arrive in stores on the same day as the HD version. Gamers will flock to get it. The past games have been great, and all have sold 1 million despite delays. Goldeneye will get love from past fans even though most of them. Have moved on to FPS heavy HD systems.
So Black Ops is the game I'm buying first, and I will get Goldeneye because of past respect. The Conduit 2 is a rental or by used.
I own both The Conduit and Modern Warfare Reflex Edition. Hands down MWR is the better of the two games. I am looking at all 3 FPS games that are coming out in the fall. Right now I will probably only be able to get one when they launch which will probably be GoldenEye for myself and since my birthday is the next month I might treat myself to one of the other two games. Since both Black Ops and Conduit 2 are supposedly supporting headsets which ever game has a bundle with the headset will be the one I get.ReplyDelete
I think those sales predictions are going to be interesting.
I wonder if Goldeneye will actually sell well right away, or if people will wait on reviews for it.
If reviews are solid for it, 2nd is probably correct.
Conduit 2 would probably do better with either an early October release, or perhaps if they pushed it to January. I just think it would be more beneficial, but if Conduit 2 is a solid FPS, the holiday sales could be really beneficial for word-of-mouth sales.
For me right now, all three are up in the air.
I think Conduit 2 is likely to be bundled with a headset, and I know Black Ops is coming out with a headset as well...not sure if they will bundle it though.
I'm just glad to see an actual headset releasing, and I hope it works well; I'm not a fan of Wii Speak.
Thank you both for the comments!
It will sure be interesting this fall with the three fps games coming out.ReplyDelete
I will make a prediction though...
Even with the hype and nostalgia people will have with Goldeneye, I think Black Ops will still hold down the sales and playtime due to the Call of Duty name being more of a household name nowadays, especially with the younger crowd, than Mr. Bond.
Could be wrong though. We shall see.
I think it will come down to advertising.
It currently seems Activision is promoting Goldeneye on the Wii, and not even allowing any footage of Black Ops on the Wii to be shown...which is usually the case with the CoD Wii games.
I just wonder if a Wii FPS actually gets a massive advertising campaign, how it would sell?
Thanks for the commment, and the mention in your article at RespawnAction.com.
I say it'll be a tough job porting MW2. MW:R took two years, and they had to cut alot of corners to get it on the Wii. So I guess it's fair that MW2 isn't on the Wii yet. On another note, Treyarch has done a great job keeping Wii owners happy. Thumbs up for bringing a giant like MW over to the Wii, and being able to patch it on a regular basis. Something High Voltage failed with the first Conduit title.
I don't think Treyarch took 2 years porting MW:R, I think it was Infinity Ward wasn't going to do it, Treyarch was already in the middle of developing COD:WaW, and once that game shipped...either Treyarch approached Activision or vice-versa, and pitched the idea about porting COD:MW to the Wii for a holiday release the following year.
I remember reading that Infinity Ward was pretty upset about the whole deal, and didn't want Treyarch to get any credit for it, even though Treyarch is the company that ported it over...now, that was all from comments in message boards and sites, so I'm not sure how accurate those are, but I can see the MW:R port not being started until after COD:WaW was shipped on the Wii.
If Call of Duty: Black Ops is more impressive than Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, then Wii owners should probably expect Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 sometime in 2011.
I'm definitely going to get Goldeneye. And since the price is really low for COD:MW, I may pick that up for the PC.ReplyDelete
I just finished reading the spread in OXM July edition and Black Ops is going to rock our world from the looks of it. Treyarch is a great studio and hopefully your Wii version, which will release on the same day (Nov 9th) as the other platforms has everything in it that is planned for 360 and PS3. I have a question though, do you have to use the wiimote to aim or can you use a console controller?ReplyDelete
I was an owner of The Conduit, and I played a borrowed World at War for 6+ months. Overall, I have to say that single player did go to TCon, it was better looking and just a little more interesting IMO. Obviously the between mission production values on WAW are better.ReplyDelete
For Multiplayer, as a Day 1 Conduit owner, I found it 100% unplayable. It took to long to start a match, there were too many bugs and delays and the hackers were horrible. I literally put about 40 hrs in WAW multiplayer and love the whole set up. I really like being able to customize your character and weapons and the little RPG like elements thrown in.
Also, I like how Treyarch designed a proving grounds of sorts dividing those with a rank of 8 or lower from those with 8 or higher.
Here is what I think of the upcoming shooters:
Black Ops: This is Treyarchs 4th Wii Shooter and them coming into their own. Each game (even on Wii) has improved and I expect nothing less than an improvement here. I had heard that COD:BO was not going to support Wii Speak, but if you end up with a headset-voice chat option for it, it is the winner hands down.
Conduit 2 - No doubt it will improve from the first, but will sales? Conduit was not the disaster that Red Steel was, but it had a lot more hype and didn't deliver. I would wait to hear reviews, I expect a great single player, but need to know about Multiplayer before buying. The headset is the X-Factor here.
Goldeneye - Dark horse, I have no idea. Better or worse it's legacy is a decade old and I personally never played it. It looks like it allows you to use stealth and silently take out guards to complete you mission. If they make a Theif type bond game, I could very much change my mind but right now this is in last place since it does not have a good look to it IMO and I don't know what the real hook is for someone who never played the first Goldeneye.
Right now, I plan to pick up Black Ops. I feel it will likely be the best overall FPS this fall.
The more I see of Goldeneye, it does look like it should be a lot of fun.
I may go on a media black-out of it though, as I don't like seeing a lot of games before I play them.
"Treyarch is a great studio and hopefully your Wii version, which will release on the same day (Nov 9th) as the other platforms has everything in it that is planned for 360 and PS3."
I really respect Treyarch, for them supporting the Wii the way they have so far.
I don't know if the Wii version of Black Ops will have all the features though, as World at War on the Wii didn't have Zombie Nazis; perhaps though, it was because that was the first Call of Duty using the COD4 engine?
"For Multiplayer, as a Day 1 Conduit owner, I found it 100% unplayable. It took to long to start a match, there were too many bugs and delays and the hackers were horrible."
Same here for the most part. I tried, really tried, to enjoy The Conduit's multiplayer; but coming from playing Call of Duty: World at War prior to it, The Conduit's online felt like a step-down, because of the reasons you stated.
"I had heard that COD:BO was not going to support Wii Speak, but if you end up with a headset-voice chat option for it, it is the winner hands down."
Yea, headset-voice chat has been confirmed I believe, for COD:BO and Conduit 2.
When you said, "I would wait to hear reviews, I expect a great single player, but need to know about Multiplayer before buying.", about Conduit 2; I just don't trust reviewers for most Wii games.
Thank you all for the thoughts/comments!
