Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Passes 10 Million Sold - Report

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 once again set an entertainment record with 6.5 million units sold in its first 24 hours and $775 million generated in the first five days. Since the game's first day sales, we haven't gotten an official unit sales update from Activision, but we may have been given an idea by Activision's rival EA. Peter Moore, EA COO, was talking about how he still believes that Battlefield 3 managed to take share from Call of Duty, and he noted 10 million sold for Modern Warfare 3.

Seems about right. It's probably even beyond that now. I'm guessing MW3 will finish close to 20 million this year.

BioWareShocker2178d ago

MW3 will probably end up with 20 million like you said. Maybe Title Fight can compete? But then again it's only on one console and fps > fighters in terms of sales.

"Maybe Title Fight can compete? "

Was that a serious statement? You have to be joking, Title Fight could and will never see COD #s, 99.9% of games will never see COD #s.

The only impressive thing about this franchise is its sales.

@MajorJackHoff:

The only thing right about your statement is "its sales".

potedude2178d ago

I asume we can see a similar version with similar sales figures next year? With sales like this why wouldn't they keep releasing it every year? Cash Cow!

donniebaseball2178d ago

Next year it switches back to Black Ops dev Treyarch. But yeah that game should post huge numbers too, unless gamers finally get sick of Call of Duty. That's always the danger with annual releases.

potedude2178d ago

It is a danger, but with those sort of numbers? Thats the stuff most devs dream about.

They are going to keep on milking that sucker until it runs dry...

Faelan2177d ago

Even if half of them said "enough is enough" and simply left, it would still be a financial success. Basically, if slashed in half, those are still crazy numbers.

LOL funny image! So true. COD is absolute sh*t now. COD4 and MW2 were and will most likely be the last good COD games. Black Ops and MW3 are total crap!

chanmasta2177d ago

Lulwut? No, COD4 was the last awesome COD game. World At War was good, but everything after that sucked complete ass.

GrumpyVeteran2177d ago

Disappointed, gaming community.
