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.
