    Are you sure that’s actual sales? The press release doesn’t really specify. The World at War and original Modern Warfare packs were free on PC.

    If those aren’t included, I’d say that’s a blow to the whole subscription hype. 20 million units on an installbase of 30-40 million is insane.

    Looks like they’ll be reducing the price of the next set of packs, then – the consumers obviously voted with their wallets and said ‘NO!’ to that shit. :-)

    @DeSpiritusBellum – Whilst it is 20m sounds like a lot. How many players bought all the packs? I’d say a large proportion. I’d say you’re looking at 4/5million players buying the packs meaning around 15% of players (all guess work of course). Wonder how that compares to Killzone, Gears or Uncharted.
