Analyst: MW3 could sell 6 million units today

Tuesday, 8th November 2011 11:23 GMT By Johnny Cullen

Sterne Agee analyst Arvind Bhatia reckons Modern Warfare 3 could sell as much as 6 million units at launch today, 1 million more than what Black Ops did this time last year in its first 24 hours. “We expect MW3 to grow 10% versus last year’s Call of Duty: Black Ops, which has sold through more than 25 million units life-to date. We expect 5.5M-6.0M unit sales of MW3 on day 1 and nearly 18M units in the December quarter,” said Bhatia in a note. Big numbers, kids. Big numbers.

Thanks, IG.

    I don’t play FPSes at all.
    I despise Activision, and Kotick, yet reading the reviews I can’t help but feel a lot of attention has been lavished on this and they’ve tried to make it everything to everyone.

    Do all of us gamers a favor and join the anti-Kotick legion, buy used!

    @7 Please tell me this is a joke.

    Used or otherwise, you’re still supporting their game. It’s fucking lazy activism where *you* don’t actually sacrifice anything.

    @8: “Used or otherwise, you’re still supporting their game.”

    That’s something probably every publisher would disagree on.

    I very much doubt that. Remember all those Xbox Live charts that get trotted out every week? See how specific games never ever leave the charts? Thats amoungst the best publicity available, if so many people are still playing that game then it must actually be amazing right?

    Im kinda loving the metacritic user reviews though.
