Just not that many AAA titles this winter for me besides COD and GT5. Booooooo! Maybe the spring will bring more awesomeness with SOCOM 4 and hopefully Ace Combat.

Well done Treyarch. COD is starting to become a little bit long in the tooth, but this is without a doubt the best game in the franchise, and well worth the purchase.
