17th PS3 '5' million seller.
Jozu (on 20 April 2013)
Obviously not. It should do in a few weeks though.
VGKing (on 10 March 2012)
Definitely has a chance to reach 5mil before the end of the year.
MrMofongo624 (on 03 December 2011)
I disagree with u, this games multiplayer is amazing. There is no bullshit in this one unlike the others. 100% fair
The_Joker_Product (on 20 November 2011)
This is the worst one.
MrMofongo624 (on 05 November 2011)

axumblade (on 30 April 2010)

Munkeh111 (on 21 February 2010)

zaMy (on 13 December 2009)
I miss this game, now that I'm playing MW2 too much
kyjoe9 (on 12 December 2009)
mw2 destroyed this game!
Trent (on 19 November 2009)
MW2 Outsell This Next Week??
The_Killer (on 19 November 2009)
MW2 will outsell it in a few weeks.
Skeeuk (on 18 November 2009)
just got this game back for the co-op
Bullza (on 05 November 2009)
Its surpassed Resistance.
zaMy (on 18 October 2009)
looks like this will outsell Resistance in a few weeks, making it the 4th best selling game on PS3
luvtospooge (on 25 September 2009)
I heard a map pack 4 is supposed to come out secretly...true?
zaMy (on 08 August 2009)
Der Riese, lvl 29 no glitches!
Already gotten most of the trophies
non-gravity (on 08 August 2009)
I don't know if Map Pack 3's trophies can only be recieved online or not, but I've listed them all as online. So please tell me if you do know.
FootballFan (on 13 July 2009)
cod4 is better than this.
Theo (on 12 July 2009)
Just beat the game, and technically it's terribly made and badly designed. But somehow still fun. And zombie mode is great :P
NKAJ (on 21 June 2009)
yeah nazi zombies is easly the best bit,mutliplayer exactly the same to cod4
TyePhoid_PAL (on 14 June 2009)
Just finished cod waw on hardened. quality game, I thought the russian lvls were better than the marines. Vendetta lvl opened just like enemy at the gates
yusuke93_ita (on 08 June 2009)
identical killzone 2 opening
Gearbox (on 20 May 2009)
@chido - nice but not hard .. new map pack wave 11, 1 person died because of raygun recoil (zombie got to close) wave 18 oringnal map 1 player (died because of unfindable crawler while i was being swarmed)
Trent (on 19 May 2009)
YAY , Just Beat Veteran ;)
dddddddddd123 (on 10 May 2009)
nazi zombies is the best bit about this game
Trent (on 04 May 2009)
I cant do the veteran trophies =( i need 6 more
Terrell (on 02 May 2009)
This game is beast
chido (on 27 April 2009)

Terrell (on 04 April 2009)

piccoro (on 25 March 2009)
metalgearmatt (on 21 March 2009)
No Japan numbers?
Signalstar (on 18 March 2009)
3 million. Nice
oliminator1994 (on 18 March 2009)
snyperdud (on 12 March 2009)
3 million next week...

Tracking well above COD 4.
Serious_frusting (on 01 March 2009)
I hope kz2 does better then this game
ocnkng (on 26 February 2009)
R2 is so much better then this one. I hate the grenade spamming and the movement mechs are absolutely terrible when compared to R2. Only COD4 made this game a hit.
Trent (on 23 February 2009)
140,000 more units then 3 Million

Xen (on 10 February 2009)
Heh, nearing 3 mil, nice!
Aj_habfan (on 09 February 2009)
The Germans don't seem to mind.
yusuke93_ita (on 09 February 2009)
3 Million in four weeks
Cowboys4u86 (on 09 February 2009)
I'm not sure this game will be hitting Japan. It'd be a bit insensitive...
Trent (on 04 February 2009)
Is there any Japan Sales?
Solid_Raiden (on 29 January 2009)
This game really surprised me. After playing Treyarch's last atempt at COD (COD3) I was really expecting to hate this game like I did that one. To my surprise this game is every bit as good as COD4 which has by far been my favorite in the series. I prefer the modern setting of COD4 but this game really is amazing for the time period it is set. Oh, and the nazi zombie mode is insane fun. Possibly more fun then Left 4 Dead and it was just an add on to an already amazing game.
chido (on 27 January 2009)
better than r2
Kaos24 (on 24 January 2009)
I like this game, though it is not nearly as good Resistance 2. its a shame that more people went and bought World at War then R2 cause i think R2 deserves better.
Theo (on 20 January 2009)
I think K2 will mirror the sales of this game because it's similar in alot of aspects, it's alot like COD 4 etc. But I think K2 will have better legs because it's a better game really.
MontanaHatchet (on 19 January 2009)
Damn, I was hoping this could spend its first 10 weeks above 100k. Call of Duty 6 needs to launch earlier.
Cowboys4u86 (on 19 January 2009)
This is riding on CoD4's coat tails. It's not nearly as good and it's a shame that it became a choice between this and R2 for many people. R2 is the better game but this wins due to CoD4 being a juggernaut.
foolpittier (on 18 January 2009)
how did this sell so much better than resistance 2
Skeeuk (on 18 January 2009)

i dunno what it could be, im on 2meg conection i use it wirelessly, 92%

and it plays fine with me, so i dunno whats wrong with the game u have
headshot91 (on 18 January 2009)
definitely not as good as cod4 both on and offline
chido (on 14 January 2009)
too much lagg.
Yawnier (on 11 January 2009)
I'm losing hope this game is gonna sell as much as cOD4.
darthdevidem01 (on 11 January 2009)
wow astonishing we know why resistance 2 wasn't a big big big hit....
chido (on 10 January 2009)
i hope they fix the nazi zombies lobby finding issues. it takes me atleast 20 tries to find a game with people in them. that is the only thing i dont like about it.
MontanaHatchet (on 06 January 2009)
Everything took a dive. It's not the holiday season anymore.
scabab (on 06 January 2009)
Wow took a nose dive in others this week what happened?
geddesmond2 (on 04 January 2009)
at skeeuk----nah its nothing to do with my connection.ive a 4mb connection and every other online game i play is fine.its playing outside my region thats the problem and to many people glitching online now.
Stats87 (on 02 January 2009)
I got this for Christmas (rather unexpectedly) from my brother.

It's pretty fun, I love the option of doing Offline Co-Op for most of the Missions
Papazx (on 01 January 2009)
wow i hate online for this game all this game did was make people start playing cod4 again truly terrible online makes you wanna break a controller
Skeeuk (on 28 December 2008)
at copy of cod5 works perfectly online, check your connection
scabab (on 26 December 2008)
Over 2 million
leo-j (on 26 December 2008)
well this was adjusted up..
Kantor (on 24 December 2008)
2 million next week. I should get this, but I'm shootered out, plus I'm getting Killzone 2 in February.
oliminator1994 (on 24 December 2008)
jacezo (on 23 December 2008)
I love this little fight going on, just get both games like me. By the way its on sale at gamestop for 50 bucks, I got it today and it is AMAZING.
Theo (on 22 December 2008)
I have this and R2, and I can say that I'm pretty sick of WWII clones and much prefer 60 player 1000k's death matches. But the 8 player co-op is the thing I play the most.
Fenristh (on 21 December 2008)
I've got it and I never get any lag issues.
geddesmond2 (on 13 December 2008)
i forgot to mention alot of people are holding out buying this game because of the lag issues.just check the eu ps forums and youll see wat im saying
geddesmond2 (on 13 December 2008)
bigjon.ps3 owners dont hate this because it killed r2.the european delay they stuck on r2 killed r2.i was gonna get r2b until they delayed it and now im never gonna get it.codww is doing great on ps3 but in treyarch got there acts together and release a patch youll see these sales doubling quickly because the ps3 version suffers serious lag at times.
SSurTails (on 12 December 2008)
id rather buy this over r5
headshot91 (on 07 December 2008)
cod4 is better than this but i dunno about resistance 2, its defenitily better in singlplayr
bigjon (on 05 December 2008)
looks like the hardcore sony fanboys hate this game because it killed Res 2's sales... Dont be bitter. The game is better in everyway than COD4, unless of course you prefer Modern Setting, I like a modern setting better too. But I still love WW2.
Dark Odin (on 04 December 2008)
Re2>>> COD4>>>> this.
--OkeyDokey-- (on 04 December 2008)
No, Resistance is crap. WAW is better in every way.
s-grandi93 (on 03 December 2008)
Who are you?? resisance 2 is waaaaaaaay better, it shits and pisses on cod5
bigjon (on 03 December 2008)
i love this game.
kazuyamishima (on 03 December 2008)
yep, but vgchartz down the sales for the ps3 version, and up the sales for the 360 version
iron_megalith (on 02 December 2008)
I liked COD4 more though...
kunaixhaku (on 01 December 2008)
@kazuyamishima, mgs4 is pass 4 million, konami sales report from i believe it was last month showed mgs 4 sales pass 4 million. i dono wutss up with vgchartz but im pretty sure cod waw is suppose to have more sales
Gearbox (on 29 November 2008)
@ warner_v
nahhhh res2 is better then this, because all this is, is cod 4 in the old days.
warner_v (on 29 November 2008)

this game pisses all over resistance 2 so fall back!!
kazuyamishima (on 29 November 2008)
Why is always vgchartz down the sales for a ps3 game, in it first game this game made it like about 810k, now vgchartz adjusted the sales down about 70k, in other hand they up the sales for the 360 versión.
It´s just like mgs4, right now the game should be at least at 4 million
scabab (on 28 November 2008)
Damn adjusted down another 60k
FPSrules (on 27 November 2008)
this game isn't that good, don't buy this game. Get RESISTANCE 2. R2 is way better than this game

everything this game has was taken from infinity ward or the medal of honor series. Treyarch really sucks at coming up with their own ideas

chris1_16 (on 27 November 2008)
PS3 games are always behind

that sucks
RED53DEVILS (on 26 November 2008)
million seller in bag
Aprisaiden (on 26 November 2008)

Its actually not a bad game its just that its WW2 ... and it doesn't have Infinity Ward magic to it.
Hthierry (on 26 November 2008)
bonsoir je cherche des joueurs francophones pour ma team pour call of duty 5 sur PS3
Hthierry (on 26 November 2008)
Hello, I search some french players for my team (call of duty 5)
s-grandi93 (on 26 November 2008)
imagine how much cod6 will sell : O........... i wish res2 would sell this good, o well, il b gettn it (res2) for christmas, cant wait!
kunaixhaku (on 25 November 2008)
y does vgchartz continously keep adjusting all ps3 numbers?? cod had over 800k not its below it
Judeophobia (on 25 November 2008)
awesome sales. Once its out in Japan it should be 800,000 week one worldwide.
Snake612 (on 25 November 2008)
Great sales. I didn't really think it would sell this much. I will pass this game and wait for them to go back to modern wafare on the next call of duty.
erikguy (on 25 November 2008)
great sales for a crappy game.

*sighs* when will people learn?

If you stop buying bad games, they'll stop making bad games.
saxophonehero (on 24 November 2008)
its already a million dollar seller.
KLucifer (on 24 November 2008)
Treyarchy looks good thanks to Inifinity Ward. COD4 was i believe reason people bought COD5. Wat a POS game. It's COD4 all over again in WW2 setting...can't stand WW2 setting. Uninstalled. Can't even return my pc game sucks. I should have bought it for my ps3. at least i could have traded it in. Back to COD4.
FilaBrasileiro (on 24 November 2008)
I maybe will buy this when it reaches the bargain bin, waiting for CoD6 by IW.
SmokedHostage (on 23 November 2008)
This game sold fairly poorly in its first week, considering that CoD4 has the title of Halo Killer. I guess once you got Iraq, you don't come... err go back.
Jo21 (on 23 November 2008)
the last one it's a wii version screenshot fix that please!
Gearbox (on 22 November 2008)
same here :) resistance 2 was phenominal ending was genious (dont wana give it away tho)
s-grandi93 (on 22 November 2008)
i loved cod4 but im gunna give this one a miss, i think ill just rent it for the story, im gunna buy resistance 2 :)
scabab (on 22 November 2008)
Its opening is double COD4's wow
Aj_habfan (on 22 November 2008)
Great sales.
SpartanFX (on 22 November 2008)
This game is very good(call of duty 4 feel which i love)
kunaixhaku (on 21 November 2008)
*extremely well
kunaixhaku (on 21 November 2008)
it cud've been better but the 360 version had a lot to offer for pre-ordered people exclusively also a limited edition exclusive to xbox 360. ps3 did extremely wekk though considering r2 just came out
zoppo (on 20 November 2008)
WOW at CoD5:WaW

CoD5 1st week 800k
(US 453k + Others 347k),

CoD4 1st week 444k
(JPN 32k + US 233k + Others 179k)
kunaixhaku (on 20 November 2008)
suprised that cod is not only a multiplatform genius but tends to outsell exclusives on each platform as well (R2 wuts hapeenin wif youuu!!!)
SSurTails (on 20 November 2008)
id rather buy this than R2
leo-j (on 20 November 2008)
All those sales could have gone to R2..oh well this is a good game as well =/
--OkeyDokey-- (on 20 November 2008)
Nice opening week. After GTA and MGS of course, would this be the biggest for a ps3 game?
Dark Odin (on 20 November 2008)
great opening!
cochise313 (on 20 November 2008)
this game is way better than i thought i was going to be. i just miss the acog scope lol
derwarre (on 19 November 2008)
i think W@W is a tad bit better than modern warfare...a lot more crispier, accurate and more so for the elite player

PSN: yungder
scabab (on 19 November 2008)
Wow 347k opening week in Others, COD4s was 179k
SHADYVILLEQUEENSNY (on 19 November 2008)
cod 4 is better the game is ok but the weapons and tanks suck so do the bmaps they are so big
Skeeuk (on 17 November 2008)
cool game, online is as adictive as ever, has full trophie support also
FatBoyPT (on 15 November 2008)
got this yesterday, its really great! if anyone is up for co-op, message me!
headshot91 (on 15 November 2008)
i got this! i will give my impressions after ive finished the single player campaign on veteran
SHMUPGurus (on 13 November 2008)
I told you guys! xD
--OkeyDokey-- (on 13 November 2008)
It actually is better than COD4.
nextgreatchamp (on 11 November 2008)
dare i say...better than cod4
K-DOGG (on 11 November 2008)

CATCHORA (on 10 November 2008)
