Modern Warfare 3 Fails to Beat Black Ops in the UK

THE BUZZ: Modern Warfare 3 might be knocking records down left and right however there is one that eluded it. The game didn’t manage to sell as many copies as Call of Duty: Black Ops during its first week of sale.

Even though the game enjoyed the biggest ever day-one sales in history, it manged to ship only two million units in the UK, which is 1.6% short of what Black Ops managed in its first week.

EGM’s TAKE: This won’t make a manage difference to Activision, but it’s odd that it didn’t manage to sell as many copies in the first week. Is this the first slight sign of a cool down for the storied franchise?

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
