Modern Warfare 2 breaks all records

Lined Essay Paper Modern Warfare 2 has been a success even Activision could never have imagined, breaking all records and making $550 million in just 5 days. Infinity Ward staff will all be laying on their personal yachts right about now wondering what to do with Modern Warfare 3 next year.

We had a quick chat today with Activision and they wanted to show just how phenomenal a success this game has been.

  • The largest reported five-day opening worldwide box office gross figures, held by Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince ($394 million)

Modern Warfare 2’s blast radius also extends 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.

It wasn’t all good news however, one kid from the UK found the game so disappointing and upseting that he tried to punch through his wall and film it himself. After only playing it for 17 hours straight… poor lad.
