Modern Warfare 3 Sells 12 Million In Week One
Nobody is going to be surprised but when we're talking about one of the fastest selling entertainment products in history, it still qualifies as news.
Estimated first-week worldwide sales for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 came in at a whopping 6.5 million and now, according to VGChartz, Activision's latest has broken yet another record: the one-week sales tally.
The biggest video game launch of all time has resulted in 12 million MW3 copies sold in about seven days. The Xbox 360 version sold 7 million units (57%), the PlayStation 3 version sold 4.8 million (39%), and the Wii/PC versions comprised the final 500,000 copies. The 7+ million for the 360 makes it the single biggest game launch for any console, outstripping last year's Call of Duty: Black Ops. We still have to wait for the NPD numbers before we get more official stats but even so...this is nuts.
