World At War Outsells Modern Warfare 2:1 In UK During First Week
According to the latest results as reported by GamesIndustry.biz, this year's CoD title outsold last year's during its debut week by an astounding 2:1 ratio. World at War topped the "All Formats" sales charts, and although we don't have actual numbers, it's still very interesting news. Other games of note on the list: the recently released World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King expansion is now the fastest-selling PC title in the UK (it came in at #2), and Football Manager 09, Gears of War 2, FIFA 09, and Guitar Hero: World Tour comprise spots 3-6. But we can't wait to see what the sales numbers are for World at War, because at this rate, the game will ultimately outsell Modern Warfare in the UK. It does stand to reason that many more gamers have either a PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 this year, so perhaps the 2:1 ratio isn't quite so surprising. But it's certainly added proof that Treyarch's effort really is worthy of your time.
Fans of the franchise adored CoD4 last holiday season, and thanks to the continued efforts of Activision and the two tag-team studios, they can have a blast with yet another CoD title in 2008.
