Activision said Friday that Call of Duty 4 was the top-selling game of 2007, with unit sales of 7 million. But Microsoft said earlier this year that Halo 3 sold 8.1 million 2007… so who was on top?
A press announcement made rounds Friday, coming out of Santa Monica, Calif.-based Activision. The publisher trumpeted how Call of Duty 4, released in November 2007, has sold 7 million units worldwide, which makes it the "#1 Title in Units Worldwide for Calendar 2007." Activision cites figures from NPD Group, GfK Group and Chart Track.
But you may recall that Microsoft announced in early January that September's Halo 3 had sold 8.1 million units worldwide. So that would appear to be the top-selling title of '07, according to Microsoft anyway.
So which one was the top-seller?
