In November Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 sold more than 6 million copies. 4.2 million copies only on Xbox 360. The PC-version is lagging behind with only 170,000 retail-copies.
PC sales of COD4 lagged behind the console versions too! Wow, didn't see this one coming.
It's a Steam Powered game, most the sales must be Steam. There are about 170 000 playing it on PC at any one time. So unless we are that hooked, Steam must have outsold retail by a considerable margin.
Infinity ward removed everything that made it worth owning the PC version. I am not surprised it is lagging.
Yeah, this is definitely not suprising. The fact that it is a Steam game (already mentioned), and lacks the refinements and ammenities expected out of a PC game is a likely indicator of the sales. I'm sure lots of people bought the PC version, but I won't until they fix the situation.
