Monday, 1st June 2009 09:40 GMT By Mike


Activision boss Mike Griffith revealed in Activision’s pre-E3 press conference yesterday that “Call of Duty products have totalled sales over 35 million.”

He also revealed, via Gamespot, that World at War has sold 11 million units in just six months, and Modern Warfare has sold at full price for six straight quarters.

Griffith also announced that Modern Warfare 2 pre-sales are already breaking records and the November 10 launch should rank as one of the biggest entertainment releases ever.

So, Call of Duty doing well, then?

    Pretty much ‘everyone’, by the looks of it.

    I finished it. It was OK. You get to shoot people for hours and hours.

    Plus one more.

    I didn’t buy it either. I can’t say I’m particularly proud of that though.

    I’ve never bought a Call of Duty game. I did play the demo of WaW, though. Does that count?

    I still haven’t bought COD:MW. Maybe because it’s been top whack for six quarters

    tbh though, the only thing that really got me into the COD series was the COD4 MP Beta.

    I wasn’t really interested in it up until that point, but it was the Beta that convinced me.

    I got WAW, but I have barely touched the multiplayer and just went through it once on the hardest setting for the Gamerpoints. The only reason I usually have a quick blast on it is if I just want to mess around in a similar MP without caring too much about my COD4 stats potentially going down.

    I bought COD2, 3, 4 and 5 and ended up incredibly disappointed, I’ve never played a more shittastic multiplayer game than COD4

    Sold the first two on Ebay so that’s -2 sales

    ever since the first dash across the cow strewn field toward a bombed church in the original Call of Duty demo I got a sense that Infinity Ward knew how to make a game ‘cinematic’ and they were going to succeed

    well that’s the thing, infinity ward didn’t make cod5, it was the guys at treyarch. and actually, they didn’t make the game, they copy/pasted it, but couldn’t do even that right. somehow they f**ked it up along the way. it’s a complete mess if u’r used to cod4, like i am. that’s why i’m so puzzled about how this game sold so much.
