MW3 sells 6.5 million first day

Written by David Stellmack



A new one day record again


As predicted, Activision’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 has set a new one-day sales record. With only numbers for North America and the U.K. to go on, the title racked up 6.5 million copies sold in the first 24 hours of release for a new one-day sales record.

With 6.5 million sold, Modern Warfare 3 tops previous record holder, Call of Duty: Black Ops, which moved 5.6 million units in day one sales. Because currently they only have day one numbers from North America and the U.K., before it is over the 6.5 million number will go even higher after the other regions report their day one sales numbers.

This means that Modern Warfare 3 generated an estimated $400 million in the first 24 hours of release across the three platforms that the game was released on. Our sources tell us that the Xbox 360 version has sold the most copies, followed by the PlayStation 3 and the PC version of the game.
