Activision is reporting more on the worldwide entertainment sales domination of their newly released game, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. Game developer Infinity Ward and Actvision have set sales records not only in the video game industry, but in the movie and entertainment industry as well. Activision has estimated worldwide sales of Modern Warfare 2 to be $550 million. Even in this challenging economic climate, Modern Warfare 2 is selling big.

Here is the breakdown of Modern Warfare 2 sales in comparison to other entertainment industry records, as noted by Activision:

Modern Warfare 2's launch beat all previous first-and five-day entertainment industry box office, book and video game sell-through records*:

-- The largest reported five-day opening worldwide box office gross
figures, held by Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince ($394 million)

-- The largest reported five-day opening domestic box office gross figures,
held by The Dark Knight ($203.8 million)

-- The largest reported five-day worldwide video game sales record,
previously held by Grand Theft Auto IV (6 million units, $500 million)

-- The largest reported opening first-day domestic box office gross
figures, held by The Dark Knight ($66.4 million)

-- The largest reported first-day book sales in dollars, held by Harry
Potter & The Deathly Hallows ($220 million)

-- The largest reported first-day worldwide video game sales record,
previously held by Grand Theft Auto IV (3.6 million units, $310 million)

Modern Warfare 2's blast radius also extends to Xbox LIVE, in which the blockbuster title's epic release established the following new standards, according to Microsoft:

-- More than 5.2 million multiplayer hours were logged playing Call of
Duty: Modern Warfare 2 on the first day alone.

2 in one day on November 10th. A new one-day record for Xbox LIVE.

Warfare 2 on the first day.
