Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Has $600M Opening Weekend

Activision announces the recent launch of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has raked in over $600 million in revenue in just three days. They call this the top-selling new premium release of the year, the biggest-selling digital opening in Activision history, and the biggest-ever Call of Duty launch for PC. They also note this once again compares favorably to a Hollywood blockbuster, saying the military shooter sequel's take outstripped the box office take of the number one movie of the moment:
Activision’s Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® had more than $600 million in sell-through worldwide in its first three days of release. The title has sold more units in its first three days than any other Call of Duty® game sold in its first three days in this console generation, and is the top-selling new premium game release of 2019. Modern Warfare also established a new record as the #1 top-selling digital opening in Activision history. With its blockbuster launch, in its first three days of release, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare more than doubled the box office opening of Joker.

Modern Warfare set new records on the PlayStation Network for the highest digital pre-orders and highest three-day digital sales ever on PlayStation 4. Modern Warfare also has become the #1 top-selling Call of Duty PC launch ever, as opening weekend PC sales on Blizzard Battle.net® were significantly up over last year.

You've had no problem interjecting religious discussion where none belonged before so /shrug

I actually don't really enjoy political discussion online anymore, its too polarized between the far left and right so people in the center are lambasted for not being on a "side". But that being said, its allowed here so when I see someone being full of poop, I'm going to point it out.

Why do you hate freedom so much? Must give you a hardon when you see the police beating the protesters in Hong Kong.

Or maybe he is just amused that you're getting so emotional about this yet continue to use Chinese products everywhere else in your daily life.

Disagree with me? YA FREEDOM HATER!!!!

I mean I get it but maybe tone it down a bit.

I would have thought you would supported his boycott of the company that kowtows to the godless Chinese government. A government that imprisoned a religious minority and murders them for their organs.
He stays out of all obvious political threads, I thought you'd have known that by now. Wink

How many times do I need to post "I stay neutral of politics" ?

Pretty sure by now most of you should know my stance on it.

I really liked the SP campaign. That ending spoiler aside, it had a reasonably interesting message as a mass-media device that will influence millions of people.

I can divorce myself from the actions of Blizz re: HK protests and this game. The campaign is actually pretty subversive, and doesn't paint Russians in particular in a very positive light. The game is banned on the PS4 in Russia, I'm guessing because of the campaign. Oh, also, one of the unlockable skins for the "bad guys" in MP is a fucking dead ringer for Putin. Pretty funny shit.

I think the most interesting thing technologically that no one's talking about is that this is a DX12-only title, and they are using some VERY cool rendering techniques to be able to have the scope magnification separate from the periphery. I think I want to make a youtube video about it with my wife to break down the physics of optics. That plus cross-play that actually works and doesn't feel weirdly imbalanced, those are some serious wins for the franchise. Then there's the 64-player mode that''s trying to be Battlefield, and while the infantry (especially sniper) gameplay is really tight in the big maps, the vehicle play is laughable, and they clearly have a lot of catching up to do vs. DICE.
Why do you need your wife to make the video? Is she going to narrate with a bikini top on in order to attract viewers?

There's a more civil way to express yourself instead of resorting to gutter speak and excessively generalized metaphors.
