UK Modern Warfare 2 sells 1.7 million in one week

Monday, 16th November 2009 11:08 GMT By Johnny Cullen


After selling 1.25 million in first day sales, Chart-Track has confirmed that Modern Warfare 2 has sold over 1.7 million units in the UK in one week. The Xbox 360 sold over 1 million alone.

It smashes the old record of 927,000 from Grand Theft Auto IV, with MW2 grossing over £67.4 million in the one week it has been on sale. In fact, it made almost double of the entire UK entertainment software market last week.

It easily enters the UK charts at No. 1. The rest of the UK charts are here.





    That’s quite a lot.

    MW 2 haked news up date…-console-tweaks-etc/

    MW 2 haked

    Now, it’s not this blog’s intention to post every little bit of gaming news (or is it?), but this is a more signal event than all the PR out there. Modern Warfare 2 for the PC, which infamously lacks dedicated servers, a console, the ability to kick players, and other things integral to a good PC game. Infinity Ward, maddeningly apathetic to the needs and requests of their users, has said that no changes to the stated areas are forthcoming.

    Well, you can’t keep a good PC gamer down. Certain cracks already allow some online play, and now the console has been enabled, allowing players to kick, change POV and FOV, and presumably do most of the stuff Infinity Ward decided had to stay in the cookie jar. Tut tut, developers. You didn’t see this coming? You could have made it easier on yourselves, but instead you turned a whole segment of your market against you.
