Not bad for PS3 and expected for 360 in the US especially now since the word around the web is there's no longer a safe way to play pirate games online without being banned anymore so pirates are buying a second console now for online gaming only.
Or the demand for the console is just there...
So does anyone know the total global numbers for MW3, BF3?
