Second Disc

DudeSean
Okay, what do you guys think of the idea of a second disc for the Wii that contains all the maps that the other systems got or will get as DLC as well as Five?

    I'd love that! But the odds of that happening are small!

    Either

    A) It wouldn't work

    or (most likely)

    B) Activi$ion wouldn't spend the money to use an extra disc.

    A - Why wouldn't it work?
    B - They've spent the money to have every other disc they've released. Why would this time be any different?

    A- I don't know.
    B- Trust me, Activi$ion would much rather make that money than spend it.

    How would they make the money without making the product? Besides, this is Activision-Blizzard we're talking about. They have Call of Duty and World of Warcraft. How the hell is money an issue for them?

    They'd make more money than you assume.  Not to mention just getting it to the players would be a pain.

    They sold over a million copies of Black Ops. They are making a lot of money. Probably the richest cooperation out there.

    Yeah, they would definitely make a profit if they did this.

    If it's for a future game, it will be half the price. Black Ops is... well... might not happen.

    Although I won't lie, they sold quite a lot, but it wasn't quite a million.  My sources state it was over nine hundred thousand.  Pretty close though.  And, I doubt they're the richest, if anything I'd say Sony.  As much as I hate them, doesn't mean they aren't bloody rich.

    My reasons? Well, I've done some research and from what I've found, my sources state that just by 2009 Sony had lost 890 million on the PS3 specifically.  So if they've lost that much on their gaming, and continue to compete in the market, I just don't see any company with more money, not to mention how many other separate divisions from gaming, that make them millions, if not billions.

    If they did it would only be zombies maps, and they would have to make for every console. The problem is that if you want to play the zombies maps now, you would have to buy W@W and Black Ops and all they map packs. I would think that they make more money with out a second disk.

    Nintendo has more money than Sony (the company that owns PlayStation).

    Proof?

    What's that? It's old news? Let's see, Nintendo has been very successful since 2007 and Sony hasn't been doing as well. Especially not with PSN going down recently.
