PostSubject: Modern Warfare 2 sells 7 million copies on day one   Wed Nov 11, 2009 6:21 pm

Early data is in and the confirmation that Modern Warfare 2 will become the fastest-selling game of all time isn't a big suprise in itself, but the margin with which it looks to take the record is astounding.




VGChartz preliminary day one figures puts the sales to date (including the midnight launches) at over 7 million copies worldwide across Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. Around 55% of sales are on Xbox 360, 33% on PS3 and the remaining 12% on PC. In terms of regional breakdowns, over 4.2 million units were sold in the Americas (3.7 million USA), 1.2 million in the UK and 350,000 each in France and Germany.

Based on the day one figures and the Tuesday release, week one figures should come in at close to ten million units which smashes the 5.92 million week one record set by Grand Theft Auto 4 last year and positions Modern Warfare 2 as the most successful game launch of all time.

In fact, even on a single format (Xbox 360), week one sales are projected to come in at around 5.5 million units - this alone is enough to be the fastest-seller of all time, even without the PS3 and PC versions as you can see below:

Over HALF of its sales are from the 360, meaning 3.85 Million copies of the 360 version were sold on the FIRST DAY, putting CoD:MW2 in the position of "10th BEST SELLING 360 Game!"

More than half of those sales are on 360. Just goes to show that 360 gamers know how to support the developers. IW Should just make COD a 360 exclusive. Even after all the Slim sales the PS3 still only accounts for a meager 33%. What a joke.

LMAO PS3 only accounted for slightly over a quarter of the sales despite all the Slims being bought while 360 accounted for over half. How is that good? Time for a petition.

LMAO What an ignorant statement. The vast majority of 3rd party games sell way more on 360. JRPGs and fighting games are the only genre that doesn't. So to say Halo, Gears and fable are all that sells on 360 just shows how misinformed you are. And look at Killzone 2 for example. Released last Febuary with massive hype and finall just now broke 1 million while Halo ODST an expansion sold 2 million in 24hrs. You guys dont even support your exclusives. So 26 million PS3 owners decided Killzone 2 wasnt worthy of a purchase.

Thats because killzone 1 flop and killzone doesn't have a bigger fanbase as halo or call of duty, and half of the playstation fanbase are not into fps's and it wasn't that hyped as halo 3 or gears of war

The Playstation fanbase isnt into FPS??? Seriously???? Killzone 2 is all we ever hear about from you Sony fantards. That and Uncharted. And Killzone 2 wasnt hyped? Where have you been? LMAO Sony even spent big money on an agressive marketing campaign for that game.

You say I dont know gaming history yet you have failed to refute any of my counterpoints. Like most brownies you just resort to insults and the old and tired RROD argument. I have countered every misinformed argument that you have tried to make so now youre just mad. Hillarious.

No you said it was because "The Playstation fanbase isnt into FPS." And you said it "wasnt hyped".

Yeah youre right its 2 million. But my point still stands. Killzone 2 should have sold at least 4 million with all the hype,advertising and 4 years of development time. PS3 owners bought almost as many copies of COD MW 2 in 2 days as Killzone 2 has sold from last Febuary until now. PS3 owners have spoken with their wallets and have said COD MW 2 is a better game.
