Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Videogame publisher Activison has claimed a second sales record for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, based on the game’s five-day global “sell-through” figure.

The title has achieved five-day sell-through sales of $550m (£329m/€369m) across the globe, according to the publisher. This is a record, it claimed.

Last week, Activision said MW2 had notched up a combined $130m (£77.5m/€87.4m) sell-through figure across the UK and US during its first 24 hours on sale – another record, apparently.

Both figures are based on internal Activision estimates, not actual point-of-sales figures.

Until now, the largest reported five-day worldwide videogame sales record was held by Grand Theft Auto IV, which notched up 6m units sales totalling $500m over the period. ®
