Previous records shattered.
After selling 6.5 million units in just 24hrs, a week has gone buy since Modern Warfare 3′s been on sale, and we’ve gotten first week sales results from VGChartz. According to the site, Modern Warfare 3 sold over 12 million copies in its first week and has become the biggest launch of all time in the videogame industry.
“The Xbox 360 version sold over 7 million units (57%), a milestone no other game on a single SKU has ever passed before. The PS3 version also saw impressive numbers with 4.8 million (39%), whilst the remaining 0.5 million was split between the Wii/PC. Of course, Japanese sales are yet to come and could push the PS3 version to 5 million units, a record in itself. Americas held 63% of sales with the remaining 37% going to EMEAA.”
This is… this is just crazy.
