Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Pre Orders Top 6.5m Worldwide - NewsMiles Taven, posted on 07 November 2011 / 11,046 Views
Final pre order data is in for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, which will shortly become the biggest videogame launch of all time.
VGChartz estimates around 6.5 million pre orders have been placed on Modern Warfare 3, up 1.5 million over last year's Black Ops, and 2.2 million over the last Modern Warfare. Predictably, America sees the largest share of pre orders, holding just over 60%. Also - unsurprisingly - the X360 SKU managed 60% of total pre orders, with the PS3 version at 35% and the last 5% split between Wii and PC SKUs (moreso the latter, however).
Check back on Wednesday when we'll have full day one figures.
