Will you trade in MW2 for CoD:BO? or is MW2 worth keeping?

Will you sell Modern Warfare 2 when Black Ops comes out? Or will  you keep both?... I don't think that Black Ops will make MW2 obsolete necessarily, but I do think that MW2 is going be partially eclipsed by the release of Black Ops... The reason I ask is because there are so many games coming out that I want and not enough money to go around, so I've been contemplating selling MW2 to get some cash for Black Ops... Since I can't make  a decision I'm turning to the GB community for advice - whats your opinion? Will you keep MW2 or sell it?

I sold MW2 a long while ago so I'm not doing any of that to get Black Ops.

Black Ops is made by Treyarch, and they haven't won my trust just yet. I'm keeping MW2 incase this turns out to be a trainwreck. Just like I kept MW when WaW came out.

Til this day, it still puzzles me why I still maintain my copy of Call of Campers: Modern Brokefare 2, when I haven't touched it since 7 days after it's release. I'm probably going to trade it int for Black Ops, considering Black Ops looks to be what Modern Warfare 2 should have been in the first place.

I would, but MW2 was a gift from my brother. And I don't really like selling gifts.

But MW2 was a trainwreck.

I'm keeping MW2, but I have a good feeling that Black Ops will be the better game in all aspects.

I'm really tired of MW2 hate.

Traded my copy of MW2, not because it was a bad game (I actually enjoyed the hell out of it) but because I got sick of the griefers and cheaters in the MP.  The single player was great while it lasted, and we had a lot of fun in the MP, but I just got tired of people exploiting the game.  I'm thinking about getting Black Ops, but worry that the same thing will happen.

@SethPhotopoulos: Yeah, I only got burnt out on the game after playing it for months, and I have never put so many hours into any other multiplayer games. The haters are obnoxious, vocal minority though, since a lot of people still play the game.

I liked MW2 and I don't like getting $15 for a game I paid $60 to buy.
 
so no.

Already traded it in on my Wii.

I don't get why people would buy a high profile, $60 game, and then just trade it in for around $30.

Huh?  Why not?  Maybe because they're done playing it and they want the money to be used for something else?

Fuck no.  I'm not getting Black Ops, and I'm going to keep playing Modern Warfare 2 until a better military shooter surfaces (which none has)

Cause the game was shit I'd never play again and 45 dollars is easier to eat than 60.

@ComradeKhan: Naw man, I am going to trade in my copy of MW2 for AC: Brotherhood. I am done with military shooters for a while now.

I got rid of MW2 a while back and got Forza 3. I will not be getting BO. Thinking of getting Dragon Age instead or another game well worth it.

I actually did snap my 360 copy after it made me snap.
