THQ's recent shooter, Homefront is off to a good start. Following reports from THQ of 375,000 sales on day one in the Americas, week one sales for the game reached 850,000 units worldwide according to VGChartz estimates. Roughly two out of every three units sold were in the Americas in the initial week.
The game also sold around two thirds of the total on Microsoft's X360 in its first week of availability with the remainder on PS3 and PC. Despite generally mediocre reviews, Homefront has managed to outperform recent titles such as Bulletstorm, Dragon Age II and Marvel vs. Capcom 3 in week one and should pass 2 million units over the summer.
