Activision today decided to bombard us with yet more Modern Warfare 2 statistics in an attempt to grow their already humongous e-peen. The publisher today boasted that Modern Warfare 2 made the publisher $550 million in its first 5 days and according to Beelzebub Bobby Kotick, it was the "largest entertainment launch in history and a pop culture phenomenon." Its rivals in terms of sales figures from other various mediums are as follows:

  • The largest reported five-day opening worldwide box office gross figures, held by Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince ($394 million)
  • The largest reported five-day opening domestic box office gross figures, held by The Dark Knight ($203.8 million)
  • The largest reported five-day worldwide video game sales record, previously held by Grand Theft Auto IV (6 million units, $500 million)
  • The largest reported opening first-day domestic box office gross figures, held by The Dark Knight ($66.4 million)
  • The largest reported first-day book sales in dollars, held by Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows ($220 million)
  • The largest reported first-day worldwide video game sales record, previously held by Grand Theft Auto IV (3.6 million units, $310 million)

Modern Warfare 2's blast radius also extended to Xbox Live, in which the blockbuster title's epic release established the following new standards, according to Microsoft:

  • More than 5.2 million multiplayer hours were logged playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 on the first day alone.
  • More than 2.2 million unique gamers played Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 in one day on November 10th. A new one-day record for Xbox LIVE.
  • More than 11 million achievements were unlocked on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 on the first day.
So yeah, apparently it was quite popular...
