MW3 Beats Avatar to $1B

Activision Publishing announces an impressive sales milestone for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, saying the military shooter sequel has surpassed USD $1 billion in sales in a mere 16 days, eclipsing a record for fastest run to a billion set by James Cameron's Avatar. "Call of Duty has become that rare entertainment franchise that transcends its own genre. Core gamers love it, as our stellar reviews show. But every year, new people are drawn into Call of Duty," said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing. "And while the franchise continues to set records, our fans still seem to want more, demonstrated by our record setting start on Call of Duty Elite. We are committed to helping everyone connect, compete and improve their game, Call of Duty style."

i own every modern warfare game, on pc. amazing campaigns. loved how modern warfare 3 tied it up with makarov, first rate ending to a story i found engagingly presented. hem and haw all you want, the sheer scripted spectacle of modern warfare changed how games are made. "no russian" is one of the first things that comes to my mind when the tired "games as art" argument comes up; it never fails to provoke an emotional response from people.

never played any of them online, though.

so in which camp do i fall now? the ones who hate modern warfare 3 because it became so popular that it is now a popular thing to hate, or the guys who hate battlefield 3 even though it's basically the same thing.
