MW3 Breaks All Sales Records

This weeks release of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 took in almost half a billion dollars in one day, breaking all previous sales records. A whopping 6.5 million copies of the game were sold in North America and the UK in the first 24 hours of release, pulling in over $400 million, according to Activision.

This beat the first-day sales of Call of Duty: Black Ops by 0.9 million copies and beat its prequel, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 by 1.8 million copies.

Such sales make this the biggest gaming launch in history, almost in league with the Largest movie blockbuster opening weekend. Currently that title is held by Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows at $483 million. However, this is taking into account two days not just the one, which means MW3 could have beaten this milestone, making it one of the largest releases across the whole of the entertainment industry. Impressive, huh?

  1. I preferred MW2 to Black Ops I feel that game took a step back. I've had MW3 almost a week now I really like the survival mode and the upgrades it's a nice touch. However the single player game was short. They are obviously focusing on online play now, which i hear is very good. As far as the sale are concerned I'm nor surprised I think only GTA 5 will be able to compete next year.
