Did Modern Warfare 2 Sell 7 Million Copies in One Day?

 Pages PREV 1 2 3 4 5
 

Such an unprecedented selling is just a bit... suspect. There have been reports in the past of companies purchasing copies of their own games in order to boost sales figures. I wonder...

But then, it's not too unreasonable if you think of Modern Warfare's sales as an extension of fans that had built up around the Call Of Duty franchise for several games.

I heard 4.7 million in the first 24 hours of launch in North America and Britian combined.

Green Tentacle:
I don't get what's so big about this, another will beat it's record in a few months.

Possibly a Nintendo Game?

HA.

WOW REALLY!?!?! So the creators of a game say it sold amazing?! We'll gee I, the creator of the game, no not the game you are thinking of that you just lost by the way. No I'm the creator of the much less successful real life game "Ass in the Pants" you wanna know the rules I hear you yelling well lets say everyone was doing it for awhile... except for the one weird guy that you know down the block that asks about your sister every morning as you trot off to Sheepville. Well anyway "Ass in the Pants" has sold a staggering 14.7 billion no easy feat considering their are only 7 billion people in the world well golly be. And I invented the game so you can definately trust my estimates yippie you dumb bastards.

I misspelled definitely as definately and if you noticed and were about to call me "stuupid" or "nun l337" I did it on purpose and I seriously recommend you get sunlight but don't fret your skin is supposed to get color from the sunlight and that feeling in your stomach? Joy

Also to Zed Zero the NPD group already predicted Mario to be the highest selling game this year and they are more reliable than fanboys and glory mongering creators

I wanted someone to read it get ready to call me on my mistakes then see my next post and hopefully feel shame. However the one I wrote to Zed Zero was there because I hadnt seen his comment until after I was already done with my previous posts
I'm not a mentally challenged mongoloid, I have used forums before although it is usually when I have my life stolen by Ewoks not when I want to make fun of fanboys like this time. In this case I gladly gave away my life for 2 sardines and a crotchful of pudding.

Pray tell, what on earth would you - or indeed, most gamers anywhere - need functional nightvision goggles for?

I believe that is a question best left unasked. Besides, do you really need to ask what hormone-driven teenage males will do with night-vision goggles?

Activision: Breeding a whole new generation of voyeurs.

Don't forget high-budget turbo-failures, like Prototype and 007: Quantum of Solace ;) (I'm frankly amazed Firefox recognizes that last word as a real word when it doesn't even recognize the company's name :| ).

Activision: Publishing a whole new generation of perversion and boring ripoffs of better games.

Probably because solace is a real word, whereas Activision is a made up word. Probably a combination of Active and Vision.

The game sucks and the people that bought it and pl..er enjoy it suck more....its no wonder why games suck these days people will buy anything they make and rarely complain about it.......oh ya I suck too since I hate most modern games....then again...it just could be me.... naww...the world dose not suck that much....I think...

WOW, the greatest selling game ever.

Unfortunatly, I can't play the f*cking thing online. What the hell is up with that Infinity Ward?

I take it you're on either the PS3 or Steam.

Steam has no explanation. The PS3 servers are run externally, and they are overloaded.

Thanks for explaining the PS3 issues.

I've been having a major sh*t storm over it all day.

Really? It's been fine for me lately....

*EDIT* Oops, didn't read the date. Sorry.

I dont belive you took canadas selling numbers into account.

Can't say that I'm surprised by these numbers.

I'm not sure if I should call up an Inquisitor or print screen and put it as my wallpaper.. Either way, awesome.

Not quite what I meant. I was calling attention to your triple-posting. You can easily post your first thoughts, then go back into your original post with Edit and flesh it out once you think of more to add. It keeps the pages less cluttered and all your thoughts organized in one spot. It's especially handy if you quote somebody, because then they don't have to look all up and down the page for anything you might have added later that applies to them.

Ramble as much as you want, but at least this way all the rambling is in the same spot.
