Sony Appreciates MW3 For Increased PSN Activity
It's certainly true that Call of Duty is more popular among the Xbox crowd.
But hey, it's just plain popular everywhere. While there were 3.3 million unique players and 7 million multiplayer hours logged on Xbox Live, the PlayStation Network experienced quite the uptick in activity as well after Activision's new shooter arrived.
Jack Tretton, President and CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment of America, had this to say concerning the impact MW3 had on the PSN:
"In just over a week, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 has been hugely successful on PlayStation 3, and continues to drive millions of gamers globally to PlayStation Network with its unprecedented and engaging online multiplayer experience. The Call of Duty franchise is one of the biggest entertainment brands on the planet, delivering gameplay experiences like no other which is why we're also excited to bring the Call of Duty franchise to our highly-anticipated next generation portable, PlayStation Vita, where we expect fans will continue their dedication to the most amazing Call of Duty experiences whether in the home or on the go."
See? It isn't just Xbox players who love the game; CoD is always a worldwide phenomenon. We could add that a game like Alan Wake sold like crap on Microsoft's platform, while a game like Heavy Rain succeeded beautifully on the PS3, but that'd be making some sort of judgment about the two sets of owners, and besides, there are always other factors involved. 'cough'
