Modern Warfare 3 sold more than 6.5 million copies in 24 hours of launch and with over $400million in sales is the world’s biggest entertainment money maker.
More than the biggest movie, CD, book or anything.
Consider this, the most recent Harry Potter movie, part two of the final book, sold an outstanding $80million in tickets on opening day. That was a film industry record.
But with 13,000 stores selling the new video game, this is the biggest entertainment industry launch of all time of any medium.
