News: If you didn't believe that Modern Warfare 2 was the biggest launch of all time before, you will now.



After putting up $310 million dollars in sales on its first day of availibility, Activision wants everyone to know that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is continuing to sell well.

As "the biggest entertainment launch in history", Modern Warfare 2's first day sales of $310 million push it past the following entertainment milestones:

  • The largest reported opening first-day domestic box office gross figures, held by The Dark Knight ($66.4 million)

  • The largest reported first-day book sales in dollars, held by Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows ($220 million)

  • The largest reported first-day worldwide video game sales record, previously held by Grand Theft Auto IV (3.6 million units, $310 million)



    Not only that, but the game's continued worldwide sales of $550 million after five days have surpassed a few more entertainment sales records:

  • The largest reported five-day opening worldwide box office gross figures, held by Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince ($394 million)

  • The largest reported five-day opening domestic box office gross figures, held by The Dark Knight ($203.8 million)

  • The largest reported five-day worldwide video game sales record, previously held by Grand Theft Auto IV (6 million units, $500 million)

    Not only is the game selling well, but it is also being played on Xbox Live like no other game before, setting a trio of usage records on Microsoft's online service.

    According to Microsoft, Modern Warfare 2 now holds the following Xbox Live records:

  • More than 5.2 million multiplayer hours were logged playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 on the first day alone.

  • More than 2.2 million unique gamers played Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 in one day on November 10th. A new one-day record for Xbox Live.

  • More than 11 million achievements were unlocked on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 on the first day.

    Wow. After that kind of performance, the only question that remains is will any game not titled Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 ever top it?

    With Infinity Ward's two year development cycle, we might just find out in 2011.
