@Kai Master
Yes, it does include bundles.
AceRandum (on 06 November 2012)
my favorite call of duty and the most sold cod to date
Kai Master (on 03 November 2012)
Does the number of sales include bundles ? (I bought mine with a 360).
ganoncrotch (on 09 September 2012)
@tomashart234 there is about 6 games on the wii that would like a word with you... solely from a sales point of view.
tomashart234 (on 21 July 2012)
nothing is going to top san andreas. san andreas was a beast of a game
Mr Puggsly (on 18 July 2012)
My mistake, San Andreas was the PS2's best selling game.
Mr Puggsly (on 13 July 2012)
Its not that far from outselling the PS2's best selling game, Gran Turismo 3. But unlike GT3, this wasn't heavily bundled.
AceRandum (on 10 July 2012)
ummm who cares as long as MW3 is still selling and it out beat blk ops in sales world wide and in North America i say this game is going to keep selling
tomashart234 (on 03 July 2012)
really you guys? MW3 sold 7.5 mil copies the first week and only 6.6 mil since. i think sales are slowing down
Mr Puggsly (on 18 June 2012)
@ VGKing - Yep, I was just listening to an IGN podcast a few days ago and they said sales for MW3 were down by about 5%. Appears that was inaccurate.
VGKing (on 16 April 2012)
Some funny articles going around that COD sales are dying down lmfao.
These COD haters are so minsinformed :D
T.Rexington (on 04 March 2012)
Haven't even played this yet, but it's plain shocking to see it be so successful. I mean, it's surpassed the top spot on the 30 best sellers list again! You'd think there would be a ceiling for the amount of people who play CoD, but it just keeps on growing every year. To think that this game has until November to sell even more. It could be at 15 by then.
AceRandum (on 26 February 2012)
Yes MW3 surpass blk ops in sales.
Propaganda (on 24 February 2012)
I used to like CoD... Well, you know the rest.
coolbeans (on 19 February 2012)
Thank you for taking the time to clarify. I meant for that statement to read more as a "typed soliloquy" (like that makes any f*****n sense :P) about the gaming public in general.
oniyide (on 09 February 2012)
@coolbeans, i have never played the MP for MW1, just the campaign, so i cannot properly comment on that
man-bear-pig (on 05 February 2012)
And that includes the fish!!!
man-bear-pig (on 05 February 2012)
This is the only cod ive ever liked!
coolbeans (on 31 January 2012)
@oniyide I found Blops a tad better as well. I find it ironic how ppl jump to the "MW 2.5" bit, as if to basically admit MW2 wasn't just "MW 1.5"
Marks (on 23 January 2012)
Who is it that keeps buying this brutal game? Still selling 100,000 per week. The game is as bad as MW2.
oniyide (on 22 January 2012)
am i the only one that thinks that Blops is better?? This really felt like MW2.5 to me.
Kai Master (on 21 January 2012)
in 2 weeks it passes BOps and next is Vice City !
yo_john117 (on 21 January 2012)
No i'ts really not the same as MW2. Their are a ton of similarities but it's definitely it's own game.
NintendoFanDj (on 19 January 2012)
same game as Modern Warfare 2 I call it Modern Warfare 2.8
UltimateUnknown (on 07 January 2012)
Great game, awesome sales. BEAST!!!
yo_john117 (on 05 January 2012)
Awesome game. Hard as hell if you don't have the perfect class but it's hella fun.
Etanclan4life (on 31 December 2011)
It dosent deserve this but hell, casual gamers love it so why argue
VGKing (on 30 December 2011)
Amazing. Well deserved!
Chunkysatsuma (on 29 December 2011)
If anyone is interested in organised matches www.placeforgamers.co.uk is going to attempt their first COD night Friday at 8pm Gmt time - Am hoping it will be fun this is the first COD game I have bought since COD4
Boutros (on 28 December 2011)
@pezus Black Ops did it in 7 weeks.
Barozi (on 28 December 2011)
@Vueguy that would be hard to accomplish because they want to keep the 60 FPS throughout the game. I mean they "could" upgrade the graphics in the campaign, but then it wouldn't feel the same as the MP
Vueguy (on 24 December 2011)
MW3 definitely better than MW3 in my opinion, probably better than BO as well, but i would said "it's time for IW to update teh graphic, it look the same copy and paste graphic from CoD4."
pezus (on 23 December 2011)
10 million in 6 weeks. How fast was Black Ops to 10?
Boutros (on 23 December 2011)
Fastest game to reach 10 million.
AceRandum (on 22 December 2011)
its only in its sixth week and it already has 9mil, by the 10th week its gonna surpass halo 3, and be real close to mw2, and i think in its lifetime surpass blk ops, giving its life total atleast 16mil
Mordred11 (on 20 December 2011)
great,great boost this week in the US
Wh1pL4shL1ve_007 (on 19 December 2011)
HALO 4!!!!
sub-zero-TM (on 18 December 2011)
playing it right now and the SP is actually pretty good! better than BF3 in my opinion, oh and killer numbers KICK ASS! :D
acdcste (on 17 December 2011)
Very impressive numbers for 6 weeks of release. Nearly at the 10m mark already.
lordmandeep (on 16 December 2011)
Well based off the fact its still ahead of Black Ops and selling more per week, it should pass 14 million.
Kizmi (on 16 December 2011)
Halo 4 yeag =D I think the same
Halo4 (on 16 December 2011)
I Hope it doesn't go to 14 Mil on Xbox 360, so H3 could still be Best Selling Xbox Game (:
The_Joker_Product (on 15 December 2011)
Course it did, itll increase next week and the week after aswell just like they always do.
Mordred11 (on 15 December 2011)
even MW3 increased this week O__o
enrageorange (on 14 December 2011)
are we looking at the same picture?? This guy is pretty clearly buff. His chest is far bigger then his stomach and hips. Unless you think he is wearing a corset he doesn't look fat at all.
PullusPardus (on 14 December 2011)
One thing that bugs me about this game's cover is why the guy is a fatass? , i mean seriously what kind of soldier looks like that? must be a good reflection on how the military just except everyone nowadays xD
yahoocomReborn (on 14 December 2011)
will reach 15 million
Kai Master (on 13 December 2011)
Best selling 360 game ever in USA and Europe except in Japan where FPS are selling worse and worse each year.
lordmandeep (on 09 December 2011)
Based on current trajectory should, pass 11 or 11.5 million by New Years...
The_Joker_Product (on 09 December 2011)
This game is stomping Black Ops in Europe.
NintendoFanDj (on 06 December 2011)
This is still selling well it may end up slowing down once it reach 10 million.
nilli (on 02 December 2011)
Muppet0000 did I ever say anything about not being able to play pirated games on consoles. NO I did not so you really should shut up if you can't read. There is piracy on consoles but it is nothing when compared to pc.. Witcher 2 was just estimated of being pirated 4,5 million times. NO console game will ever reach those numbers and that was a game worshipped by pc community the exclusive without drm etc... You have to mod your console and risk it getting bricked. You lose your online access and in worst case scenario your online purchases with your account.. Not to mention if you wan to pirate on consoles you need a freaking pc to do it. Unless you wan't to buy them at blackmarket.. On pc piracy is easier than getting the actual game. This is why every multiplatform game sells better on consoles and gets pirated way less. HERE YOU GO: http://torrentfreak.com/call-of-duty-black-ops-most-pirated-game-of-2010-101228/ The real questino why do the game developers even bother with pc when they make single player games. Everybody I know get the pc version off the internet free but if it were a consoles exclusive there would be a chance they would buy it.. Like many did with RDR.
Wh1pL4shL1ve_007 (on 02 December 2011)
@Kai Master... If your talking about Physics, Halo is an exception. The physics is deliberately done like that for extra fun...
Wh1pL4shL1ve_007 (on 02 December 2011)
@Mupet000 Actually no, MS has success fully patched All hacks with XGD4 or 3 was it? Anyway, Xbox Live was not hacked, I believe it was over loaded servers. Im sorry, your wrong. Plus, To hack the XBox 360, you need Jtag which you need a special engineer for... unlike the Ps3 where you just need a simple USB to successfully hack the ps3 and even play online without getting banned! O.o
mupet0000 (on 01 December 2011)
Now now nilli, you should really try and shut up if you don't know what you are talking about. The 360, PS3 and Wii are all hacked and capable of playing pirated games, infact the 360 was only hacked a few months after it's release and every single update microsoft has released to try and patch these hacks have failed.
Kai Master (on 26 November 2011)
I at last bought a CoD game for the first time (MW3) just to see why 26M+ gamers buy it every year, and I'm very mixed : the physics engine is better than in Halo (there's tons of weapons acting very differently, shooting accuracy is better, etc.) BUT it is so boring and uninteresting to play... I see MW3 as a "RPG-FPS", when you start at level 0 and have bad weapons, you get XP even if you're 8th/8, unlock a bazillion things when getting levels, etc. All is done to push kids (that's definitely a kids' game) playing to get a better arsenal... I think psychologists must have been hired to create this game ! That's just a game that reward and reward and reward... Halo is far more fun and competitive IMO. Anyway, I still play MW3 for a while longer (i don't like to waste my money)...
nilli (on 23 November 2011)
Rexar you do know that is why most of the developers focus on multiplayer games on pc. You also know that it is most definately possible to play on pirated servers and over the lan using tunneling software on pc. You are a pathetic loser who is running out of excuses. Black ops got over 4 million illegal dowloads on pc last year you retard little child. Modern warfare got over 4 million illegal downloads on pc year before that. You are a freaking joke. Pc piracy has shot through the roof in the past few years it is so easy and yeas you can play most of the games illegally even if those games have multiplayer. On consoles you have no chance.
Barozi (on 19 November 2011)
*current lifetime sales
Barozi (on 19 November 2011)
Haha with Japan sales the opening will outsell World at War's lifetime sales
Marks (on 17 November 2011)
Outsold BF3's 2 week worldwide total in just 1 day of release in just America.
Iveyboi (on 16 November 2011)
Wow...4.55M in AMERICAS
NintendoFanDj (on 16 November 2011)
call of duty is good to me anymore Black Ops killed it for me. So this isn't in top 100 best game to date.
lurkerwithnosoul (on 16 November 2011)
Thank God you never hated anything that's popular Joker. All those low rated Nintendo games you have on your profile are all legit.
The_Joker_Product (on 16 November 2011)
People hate whats popular.
DevilishSix (on 16 November 2011)
People love to hate on this game but someone seems to enjoy because sales don't lie. I picked it up and I have to admit that I wasn't going to buy it but the Spec Ops mode with survival is so much fun.
alonsodono (on 16 November 2011)
LEGS
pezus (on 14 November 2011)
It had almost the same engine on consoles yes (or looks almost the same), but the difference between BF3 and BC2 on PC is vast. So you agree that the problem isn't that PC is dying, but that console gamers don't like 30 FPS. And larger maps? As far as I know, BF3 has vastly bigger maps than MW3
nilli (on 11 November 2011)
pezus BC2 was no way console focued it had almost the exact same engine. Oh and nobody gives a fuck about the first BFBC. BF3 sold like shit. It was suppose to be this challenger for COD and they made it pc focused because they don't know how tro make console games. 360 version of CODMW3 will sell more than BF3 on every single platform. If Dice will get the next BF game run on 60fps on consoles and introduce split-screen and do larger maps etc... then they have a chance to challenge COD.
markimsoad (on 10 November 2011)
Commercial trash... like backstreet boys or justin bieber... Assassins Creed Revelations will better than this game!!!
Mr Puggsly (on 09 November 2011)
Glad I played BF3 first, it makes me appreciate the quality of CoD more. BF3 may have a more advanced graphics engine, but CoD blows it away in over all quality. My advice for Dice, stick with an engine and work on the game.
pezus (on 09 November 2011)
I seem to recall it selling much more than the console focused BCs
pezus (on 09 November 2011)
So BF3 sales are bad now?
sales2099 (on 08 November 2011)
learn EA.......making a shooter caer to the PC guys leads to bad sales.
nilli (on 06 November 2011)
will sell more on 360 than BF3 sold on all systems combine. Why? Because activion knows how to make console games and couldn't care less about pc.
elmerFudd5 (on 03 November 2011)
i scene videos of this from ondemand and it looked like the exact same thing as black ops, im gonna see what reviews say about this b4 i picked it up, i wasnt into prestiging or anything like that

rexar (on 01 November 2011)
I agree that this game sale most on xbox360 but you will see that bf3 will sale most on PC, becouse that suck on console.
fedfed (on 01 November 2011)
not sure first weeklife time will be same as black oops!I hate this games!
rexar (on 31 October 2011)
Another sales record, 12 millions first week acros all platform and 40 millions lifetime.
yo_john117 (on 28 October 2011)
The elite pass is complete BS
nilli (on 24 October 2011)
Call of duty will sell loads of more than Battlefield 3. Why? Because dice don't know how to make games run nice on consoles. If they would have figured out that developing for consoles is the way to go they would see same kind of sales numbers. Now they focus on pc and see shit sales numbers.
Etanclan4life (on 13 October 2011)
There is no way this will sell more than black ops people are crazy.
AceRandum (on 11 October 2011)
i predict 7.2 mill first week and 25 plus in lifetime
GuiltySpartan77 (on 11 October 2011)
25 million lifetime
yahoocom1984 (on 06 October 2011)
No, 6.5 million---7 million copies first week
yahoocom1984 (on 06 October 2011)
No, 6.5 million---7 million copies first week
yo_john117 (on 24 September 2011)
I'm really looking forward to this game actually. It will probably do about 6.2 million FW
mexer (on 31 August 2011)
Another sales record, 40 millions lifetime across all platforms.
feng5430225 (on 30 July 2011)
20 Million life time
IIthesaviour (on 25 July 2011)
Can't wait!
AmericanAli (on 29 June 2011)
