$3 Billion Worth Of Call Of Duty Sold

Illustration for article titled $3 Billion Worth Of Call Of Duty Sold

Activision somehow managed to shake off its turkey-induced coma this morning to announce that the Call of Duty franchise has generated more than $3 billion in sales.


With Modern Warfare 2 pulling in $550 million in sales within the first five days of release, the $3 billion certainly makes sense. From the original Call of Duty right on up to one many of you are playing right now, more than 55 games have passed to gamers' hands, which might give Activision CEO Bobby Kotick's accompanying statement and speculation merit.

"Call Of Duty has become one of the greatest entertainment franchises of all time. If you consider the number of hours our audiences are engaged in playing Call of Duty games, it is likely to be one of the most viewed of all entertainment experiences in modern history."

I'm probably going to get jumped for saying this but...

After playing almost 35 hours online and beating SP on normal and now 1/3rd of the way through the game on veteran, I've decided, in retrospect, that MW2 is just a mediocre shooter. I actually prefer MW1 more.

I actually spent all of last night playing Peggle. It was more fun than MW2.
