Modern Warfare 2 Sold A Lot Of Copies

Modern Warfare 2

According to Activision, the little game that could, Modern Warfare 2, sold 4.7 million copies in North America and the U.K., taking in $310 million. Shocking, I know. This makes the launch the biggest in gaming history, just as Activision predicted.

Keep in mind: The U.S., the U.K. and Canada are only three of the many nations in which the game was sold. For comparison's sake: The second best launch in history was Take-Two Interactive's Grand Theft Auto IV, which sold 3.6 million copies globally.

As for the long-term, analyst predictions range from total sales of 11.1 million copies this year to estimates as high as seventeen-bazillion copies sold. Activision stands to make between $803 million and $25.6 jillion on the game.

Reports that Activision head Bobby Kotick will use the Modern Warfare 2 profits to purchase a dormant volcano in the South Pacific in which to build an army of atomic robots bent on world domination have not been confirmed, although experts regard them as imaginary.
