Modern Warfare 3 - 6.5 Million Copies

Modern Warfare 3 was sold 6.5 million times on its first day - only in UK and US. That's the biggest entertainment launch in history.

Call of Duty knows what 'biggest entertainment launch in history' means. Looking back:
  • 2009: Modern Warfare 2 sold 4.7 million units, making $310 million the first day
  • 2010: Black Ops sold 5.6 million units, making $360 million its first day
  • 2011: Modern Warfare 3 sold 6.5 million copies, generating $400 million its first 24 hours

There has never been another entertainment franchise, except for Call of Duty, that has set release day world records three years in a row, said Bobby Kotick, the boss of Activision. These numbers only regard the US and UK market but there has also been millions of sold copies in Asia and in the rest of Europe. At least, there are 6.5 million and 1 units sold so far because I've bought Modern Warfare 3 myself.
MW3 was released worldwide on Tuesday for PS3, Xbox 360, PC, and even Wii, which version was made by Treyarch.

It's normal, in my case is one of the games I enjoyed more (multiplayer with buddies or zombie mode).

I had heard they broke a record which they set when they broke their own record.
