Activision released a statement earlier today, indicating that since it’s release on the 10th of November 2009, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 has already brought in more than $1 billion in terms of retail sales worldwide. Over $550 million was raised during the first five days of availability, breaking records and out-performing five-day box office performance of movies like The Dark Knight, Harry Potter and Avatar.

Averaging the sales so far, this means that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 has been bringing in an impressive $15.625.000 per day, which places it well above the the relative Gross Domestic Product of the Republic of Niger. This further boils down to an equally impressive revenue of slightly more than $180 per second.

    1. Yeah, cause game sales =/= ticket sales, a normal game is 5-6 times more than a ticket, so things don’t quite add up.

      Avatar still has earned more money than MW2 anyways, and Avatar has been out less time then MW2.

    1. I’m with you there, oh and don’t forget about the $10 price hike to add to that No dedicated servers and not being able to change the graphics.
