Hey Jordan, looks like over 7 million other people love the game you weren’t too crazy about. Yeah, that’s right, Modern Warfare 2 became the greatest selling video game in one day. Tuesday’s numbers came in and it sold over 7 million copies worldwide, with 3.7 million copies being sold in the U.S., 1.2 million in the UK, 350,000 in France and Germany. But wait there’s more.
Not only did it sell 7 million copies in one day but it’s on pace to sell over 10 million copies in one week and become the all time greatest game in “week one sales” on a single platform (Xbox 360) with a projected number of 5.5 million copies sold in week one. That means it’ll beat the second place game Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas (PS 2), which sold close to 4 million copies in itss first week. For you Playstation 3 folks (ahem, Yuliya), that console sold over 3.3 million copies.
Below is a chart of Week One sales for all time games. (chart from VGChartz)
Are you surprised that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 has become the all time highest video game sold? How many copies did you think were going to sell?
