Modern Warfare managed to sell almost 5 million copies on day one, and that is only preliminary internal sales figure from Activision. The numbers could be much higher if we include total worldwide sales. Some are even expecting at least 7 million copies on day one itself.
Regardless, the company managed to rake in almost USD310 million on day one itself. It has already make its mark as the biggest entertainment launch in history and it’s no small feat. We have to wait and see the official figures from NPD or something. Meanwhile the hype is at fever pitch. I can imagine millions are glued to their TVs playing the game right now, absorbing it all in, with online game rooms packed full with people competing their way to the top. Kudos to Infinity Ward.
