Forums - Gaming Discussion - Modern Warfare 3 sells 9.3 million copies Day 1!!!

A reported 1.5 million people queued at midnight globally to get their hands on Modern Warfare 3, with a total of 9.3 million copies sold on the first day. The Xbox 360 version sees around a 54% share, meaning it's the first game on one platform to pass 5 million on its first day. The PlayStation 3 version held 42%, which is around the 4 million mark. Both day ones are only slightly behind Black Ops entire first week sales. The PC version and the Wii version held the remaining 4%, which is around 370,000 units.

As a whole, Modern Warfare 3 is up 33% over Black Ops' first day sales, and a whopping 55% up on the previous Modern Warfare. the US and the UK combined account for 7 million, which is just over 75%.

Early data suggests first week sales are on course for around 12 to 13.5 million. With just over 87 million Call of Duty games already sold on home consoles and PC this generation, by the end of this week the Call of Duty franchise will have sold over 100 million games this generation.

WOW



YNWA

Thats actually very close between the PS3 and Xbox 360. 5.02 million vs 3.91 million. A gap of only about 1 million. Just looking at the Black Ops Day 1 article from last year it says this

"Xbox 360 takes the largest proportion of sales with 59%, 36% for PS3 and the remainder on PC, Wii and DS."

PS3s share went up 8% with MW3. Xboxs share went down 7% and the others version share went down 1%.



ah,i think you should post it to sales disscussion



Oh that is just ridiculous!

thats before adjustment

and MW3 week one gap is likely 1.6m again like black ops



all 9.3 million should be ashamed of themselves imo



Now that's a lot of discs, manuals and plastic packages...
