So apparently, gamers in the UK liked Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. They liked it a lot.
MCV’s Tim Ingham is reporting that sales figures for the UK launch of the game moved roughly 1.23 MILLION units of the highly anticipated title earlier this week. From MCV:
Incredibly, that’s double the number GTA IV sold through in its first 24 hours on shelves – making MW2 by far the fastest-selling video game in UK history.
The figure – which represents close to one in 24 UK homes – comes from official GfK-ChartTrack data obtained by MCV.
DOUBLE?! Really? Wow.
I wonder how many of those gamers are going to play through ‘that’ mission. You know the one that I mean.
