COD4 tops the 7 million mark

Still short of Halo 3's 8 million sold


According to industry statistics trackers, Infinity Ward’s modern FPS title Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare has surpassed the 7 million mark in sales. While Halo 3 was still the leader in sales in North America with over 4.28 million copies sold, COD 4 earned a respectable 3.04 million copies sold. Outside of North America, things are a little different with over 7 million copies of COD 4 sold worldwide across all platforms. (COD 4 is available for the PC, Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and Nintendo DS.)

It seems that Microsoft is claiming that Halo 3 has sold over 8.1 million units worldwide, which is still more than the over 7 million units that Activision is claiming for COD 4. It appears that it all has to do with the way that the count is tallied. While it has been suggested that the Microsoft 8.1 million figure is the number that they have shipped to retailers the Activision number is the actual number of copies that have been sold across all four platforms on which COD 4 is available.

It really does not matter, as both titles were two of the best selling titles in 2007.  The fact that Halo 3 was Xbox 360 exclusive does make Microsoft’s numbers a bit more impressive, when compared to COD 4 selling across four different platforms.
