Feign Surprise: Modern Warfare 3 Breaks Entertainment Records
Another year, another Call of Duty game, another report of this one breaking all previous records held by the entertainment industry as a whole. In just five days Modern Warfare 3 has grossed over $775 million dollars. For comparison, Black Ops and Modern Warfare 2 did $650 million and $550 million in the same time span, respectively. Of course all that money obviously translates into players as well.
Modern Warfare 3 players logged over 7 million man hours by the end of launch day and set a new record for most players online at once on Xbox Live with 3.3 million also on launch day. Say what you want about the game, the series and their fans but the numbers continue to speak for themselves.
