Best Call of Duty
hudsoniscool (on 09 April 2011)
9 million lifetime
yahoocom1984 (on 11 February 2011)
10 million
Mr Puggsly (on 24 January 2011)
In 2010 this sold almost 440K. This could have pretty good legs even when this gen comes to an end.
axumblade (on 13 January 2011)
I still see 10 million being possible at the very end of the'll be a while though...
MonstaMack (on 26 May 2010)
It's now available for digital download through XBox Live Marketplace at $40.
Boneitis (on 22 December 2009)
@ Seece
Another 2 million will be easy if they cut the price to $30 or lower. New copies still go for $50.
zzyoshiman (on 15 December 2009)
nearly 8 million
Seece (on 12 December 2009)
Wonder if it's insane legs will now be cut short, 30k this week.

Another 2 mill will not be easy.
Bullza (on 07 December 2009)
It not only passes 8 million next week but COD4 as a whole passes 13 million.
Boneitis (on 25 November 2009)
I think MW1 and 2 will hit 10 million each sometime in the life of the 360.
Barozi (on 24 November 2009)
Will hit 8 million pretty soon
zaMy (on 08 November 2009)

well deserved sales! Best FPS I've ever played
Bagaren85 (on 05 November 2009)
Crazy japanese legs! AAA game.
Bagaren85 (on 05 November 2009)
8m, no problemo!
Metallicube (on 27 October 2009)
Really fun single player mode, even though it's pretty short. Online is fun but I suck at it ha.. I'm REALLY looking forward to Modern Warfare 2.
IxisNaugus (on 20 October 2009)
I will buy this when Modern Warfare 2 is released because over here in the UK it is still at full price.

I considered getting Modern Wiifare as i already have World at Wii, but i think i want to try the X360 original version this time round, that and i want to own a friend of mine at this :3
angrypoolman (on 12 October 2009)
i have this game
Strategyking92 (on 10 October 2009)

Because he assumed you were a ps3 fanboy I guess. No matter, I think it's overrated to. It's pretty good, but all those games you listed are superior.
But for a console fps, this ranks up there with halo 3.
Gearbox (on 13 September 2009)
still my favourite fps of all time
TiagoCosta (on 07 September 2009)
this one will reach 8 mil
HelloMotto (on 31 August 2009)

correct, it's KZ2.


i find FPSs like team fortress 2, bioshock, half life 2, battlefield to be better than CoD4.

and why do you automatically assume it's KZ2?
Rawnchie14 (on 25 August 2009)

While FPS is better then? And it better not be KZ2.
HelloMotto (on 11 August 2009)
quite overrated, but still fun.
coolbeans (on 07 August 2009)
FootballFan, I don't jest when it comes to things like this. If you possibly think this is a the best MP experience ever, it is your opinion yes, but I suggest diving more into FPS from past gens. Heh now that I think of it, try diving more into some this gen FPS' as well.
Aion (on 22 July 2009)
Best fps ever.
RockSmith372 (on 18 July 2009)
top 50 best selling games ever! Congratz
st_muscat0 (on 26 June 2009)
last comment has to be a joke post surley? Seriously FootballFan if you think this is the best multiplayer experience anywhere than your got to be joking. Yes COD:4's is great but its the best, if you want the best go play some PC games, like the Battlefield series.
FootballFan (on 20 June 2009)
last comment has to be a joke post surley?
coolbeans (on 11 June 2009)
Bit overrated on mulitplayer if you ask me. Very solid but not the best MP experience IMO.
CatFangs806 (on 12 May 2009)
Best multiplayer experience ever.
candy2500 (on 03 May 2009)
i just picked this one up and its great, in fact its to real. you really need to see it in action to understand. also IMO the single player isn't as short as a lot lead you to believe it is, its just one of those game you don't wont to ever end.
numonex (on 12 April 2009)
One of the best games on XBox 360 this generation. Best Call of Duty game ever made and one of the best FPS games ever made.
shinyuhadouken (on 24 March 2009)
finally passed 2 mill in others
halogamer1989 (on 15 February 2009)
Congrats IW for 7 mil!
Picko (on 09 February 2009)
@ deathgod33: There is absolutely no chance of that happening. Getting at attach rate equal or in this great greater than Halo 3 is almost impossible.
Cheat1011 (on 04 February 2009)
Why exactly would it have outsold Halo 3? You sell more copies being multiplatform.
MrBirdTurd (on 03 February 2009)
7 million Congrats Infinity Ward What a great game
deathgod33 (on 31 January 2009)
it would of at least outsold halo 3 if it were xbox 360 exclusive, trust me.
toastboy44562 (on 29 January 2009)
8 million is a lock at this point...
HappyPerson14 (on 29 January 2009)
7 million
Picko (on 28 January 2009)
@ deathgod33:

No, it really would not have.
MrBirdTurd (on 25 January 2009)
Should hit 7 mill this week It wont get that much higher. Wonderful Sales
Aj_habfan (on 20 January 2009)
Halo 3 didn't even come close to that...
deathgod33 (on 08 January 2009)
it would of sold 12 million if it were exclusive for 360.
toastboy44562 (on 12 December 2008)
Go,.... Go to 7 million!!!
Seece (on 11 December 2008)
Finally slipping off the charts, should reach 7 mill lifetime.
MrBirdTurd (on 01 December 2008)
It was a nearly perfect fps in all respects.
RockSmith372 (on 26 November 2008)
could get 7 million...maybe
Never Try (on 24 November 2008)
Great game with piss poor higher difficulty, gave me a head ache.
thetonestarr (on 19 October 2008)
Put my first real play into this today. Really fun game - the flash grenades are a LOT of fun to toy with. And the P90 is the favored gun in my present favourite TV show (Stargate SG-1), so it's a lot of fun to toy with on here too. =)

If only I could also get a staff weapon or a Zat'Nik'Tel.
RockSmith372 (on 28 September 2008)
outsold Halo 1.
Barozi (on 07 September 2008)
that's not surprising cause here on vgchartz are more PS3 than 360 owners
deathgod33 (on 28 August 2008)
more people on vgchartz own the ps3 version than the xbox version but the latter outsold the ps3 version by 2 million.
Egghead (on 18 August 2008)
Because IW are busy making a true sequel while Treyarch cash-in between
konnichiwa (on 15 August 2008)
We need a official COD4 thread were we can plan to play together ^^''.
Bagaren85 (on 15 August 2008)
Insane sales! What a succe, and great fps. XbL = Awesome!
Simulacrum (on 14 August 2008)
What a legs.
toastboy44562 (on 13 August 2008)
The more practice you get the more you will like it. :)
Chibilobolib (on 13 August 2008)
I never liked this game. Ive played it with my friends and wasn't keen on it at all...
toastboy44562 (on 08 August 2008)
because then cod5 will be comming out next year not this year
RockSmith372 (on 02 July 2008)
why does activision not let IW do every call of duty game? every one they touch turns to gold (Call of Duty 1, Call of Duty 2, Call of Duty 4)
toastboy44562 (on 20 June 2008)
i think it will
wareagle372 (on 16 June 2008)
could potentially outsell the 1st Halo
toastboy44562 (on 11 June 2008)
This is the best fps game on the 360 so far
Oemenia (on 31 May 2008)
This game is trash in comparison CoD 2, at least SP wise
jerseyboy609 (on 30 May 2008)
6 million selller in the bag
MontanaHatchet (on 22 May 2008)
You bet I am!

Ha ha, it's no big deal man.


This game might hit 6 million when the American data comes in. Incredible.
wareagle372 (on 19 May 2008)
wow montana u really on my back about every comment i say huh?
segajon (on 19 May 2008)
one of the best online shooters ever
MontanaHatchet (on 19 May 2008)
Ha Wareagle, it really won't. It had several chances to and it didn't, so it ain't going to happen now when the PS3 version is only selling 14k copies less.
wareagle372 (on 17 May 2008)
it will probably double the ps3s COD4 soon
playnext3 (on 16 May 2008)
combined with ps3s numbers its already outsell it by a larg margin
Picko (on 15 May 2008)
Its hard to believe that this could literally outsell Halo 3, although it'll still take some unbelievable legs to do so. Halo will continue to sell well for the rest of the generation.
Mummelmann (on 18 April 2008)
Completely insane sales and fully deserved!
Strategyking92 (on 13 April 2008)
4 million next week!
DeadOnArrival06 (on 10 April 2008)
I cant believe how well this game is selling on the 360. I have both PS3 and 360 consoles and I got my copy on 360, but damn, I never expected it to get this big.
PSXMASTER (on 08 April 2008)
this game will out sale Halo 3 counting just the 360 sales
deathbeast (on 08 April 2008)
The little justice that exists on the internet banned you, Patriot7me. Don't come back. We prefer it without your ignorance.

Great visual update, the fanboy rating score needed to be removed. Nobody cares what a bunch of sony and nintendo fanboys think of all the games.
nathantay (on 30 March 2008)
Very solid game but is way too short. 8/10
Aj_habfan (on 28 March 2008)
This game will never die.
rogerioscaff (on 17 March 2008)
best war modern games.
MontanaHatchet (on 15 March 2008)
It's the 360's 2nd best selling game now!

360 owners love their shooters!
slipknot0129 (on 14 March 2008)
cod4 will pass halo 3 in sales on the xbox 360
fred (on 13 March 2008)
The PS3 owners come here to give this game a bad score and it just keeps selling more and more, I think buyers have now got wise when they see a low score but good sales they know its going to be a good game ..
Daddo Splat (on 13 March 2008)
Its content that gives games awards not hype Halo3 and COD4 are the 2 best games on the 360 with a bunch right under them. H3 online is a bit deeper IMO the campaigns were both great! still I give the edge to COD4 as game of the year sorry SMG and H3 Bioshock and Mass effect and MP3 and zelda for that matter! Cod4 is awesome its shoild be around a 9-10 here, but there are a lot of geeks who hate here!
slipknot0129 (on 07 March 2008)
i didnt think cod4 would outsell halo 3 but it did

Wii7me (on 07 March 2008)
Lame game that's overrated.
Oyvoyvoyv (on 05 March 2008)
This game is actually, alone, outselling SMG in America! That's quite something. Now just release one of these a month, and Activision will take on Nintendo :P
erikers (on 22 February 2008)
You have an inability to understand the difference between using common sense and defensive rukusa. Somebody saying a game on two platforms will pass halo 3 really means nothing. By the end of this generation there will probably be 30 or 35 games that pass halo combined on multiple platforms...who cares? I would like to see a game pass it head to head on the system it's on, because that would be a feat.

As for deathbeast, thousands of people on forums said what you just said about HALO 2 and then halo 3 comes out and is selling much faster on a platform that had a smaller userbase than Halo 2 did. You really lack intelligence or you just have no knowledge of sales. If halo 4 was to be released on the 360, I bet you it would end up selling more than Halo 3. You also have no knowledge of what "millions of people" think of any game. You're another genius who's decided his own personal opinion and few friends has translated to millions of people because you can't differentiate fact from your own opinion.

I have both games and I don't really care about either game in particular as both have short, disappointing single player campaigns and stellar multiplayer modes. I only feel the need to post because of the stupid responses I get for thinking a game on multiple consoles beating a game only on one isn't that suprising.
deathbeast (on 17 February 2008)
Erikers, it's amazing that COD4 took so many sales and awards from Halo 3 given the absolutely crushing hype and marketing behind Halo 3. Myself, I was fooled by the hype and marketing and wrongly assumed halo 3 would be a good game, so I bought it. Big mistake. 20 of my friends did as well. All of them hate it and prefer COD4 in every single way. Millions who bought halo 3 were disappointed. The next halo game will not sell nearly as much after a fiasco like this, with this kind of negative publicity and word of mouth.

However, in the end the better game prevailed. Major game industry awards didn't even NOMINATE halo 3, whereas COD4 walked away with either overall game of the year or runner up and many other awards.

rukusa (on 12 February 2008)
why are you being so defensive Erikers? ;)
erikers (on 08 February 2008)
Gee wow, a game on two platforms will pass one. I can name a bunch of other games on multiple platforms that will sell more than Halo 3 combined. That doesn't mean anything. Wake me when a game passes it on the same platform head to head.
naznatips (on 07 February 2008)
It will easily pass Halo 3 combined. It's now less than half a million away.
segajon (on 02 February 2008)
^^^^ I doubt it will pass Halo 3, but it will definitly pass Gears of War.
Of the three games, it will be like this sales wise,
1. Halo 3
2.Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare
3. Gears of War
I think it should be the opposite though, more like this......
1. Gears of War
2. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare
3. Halo 3
Kasz216 (on 30 January 2008)
It should. It's much better that halo in my opinion.
naznatips (on 28 January 2008)
Hah, this game could actually pass Halo 3.
Damstr8 (on 27 January 2008)
Sweet lord 4.3 Million? god this like....almost halo sales
PATRIOT7ME (on 25 January 2008)
Game sucks. Everyone just likes it cause they are just idiots who like to shoot people.
wareagle372 (on 24 January 2008)
this game is doing better than even infinity ward thought! this game could make 6-7million easily
fred (on 24 January 2008)

Hmmm Shouldn't you ask that on the PS3 or PC section ? why would you ask that here, do you need a spoon ?. anyway back to the 360.

9.6/ 10

Great game and 4.32 million and rising can't be wrong..
tokilamockingbrd (on 23 January 2008)
Should I get it for PC or PS3 someday?
Bass.exe (on 22 January 2008)
I just got this game and loving it. 9.4 out of 10 (gave it a ten though)
tokilamockingbrd (on 20 January 2008)
add maybe as much as another million to this one from the US....
Jessman (on 16 January 2008)
God i hate when fanboys put down a game just because its on xbox.
fred (on 16 January 2008)
3.21 Million whew.....
--OkeyDokey-- (on 08 January 2008)
this game absolutely incredible!
best graphics i've ever seen and the best first person shooting in any game EVER!!

20 out of 10 :D
fred (on 31 December 2007)
2.80 million and still going strong..
SergeantPwn (on 21 December 2007)
Great game. 10 from me. Multiplayer is fantastic. Definite must-buy.
Jessman (on 19 December 2007)
Awesome game, i have it on PC and Xbox.
Picko (on 18 December 2007)
Seems to be an issue with the sales data on this page. It says that it has done 1.07m in the US, whereas the charts say 1.70m
Daddo Splat (on 13 December 2007)
If this is a one then they should burn supermario galaxy and get rid of all games! damn this was and is a great gaming experience! mario was my first console gaming experience. robotron in the arcades was the best game ever not as good on xboxlive though so ripping shooters all the way platformers are for passing time! this was truly a great game!
Myahon (on 23 November 2007)
I gave it a nine. The multiplayer could have been better and the single was short and when you play the US side, annoying, but otherwise AMAZING. The good maps are few and far between but the great leveling system making it a sort of FPS RPG.

I loved it and am still playing it. It's the second best online shooter i ever played second only to battlefield 2, it's even better then halo 3
Dyunak (on 19 November 2007)
cool game...dont know why the grade is low...anyway i was expecting more..
erikers (on 18 November 2007)
"The Xbox 360 version of ‘COD 4’ is huge, claiming 63% of total sales over the formats and is the 11th biggest weekly sell-through ever and second only to ‘Halo 3’ in terms of Xbox 360 titles."

Yes that's right, 11th biggest opening week ever in the Uk and it has debuted at #1 for the 360 version in almost every country chart that has been released including UK, Germany, and Australia. Globox, stick to the PS3 game threads where you spell every game wrong, leave the trolling to the professionals.
Globox (on 18 November 2007)
Fake EU numbers, what is the source? Give me a brake.
erikers (on 18 November 2007)
Damn right, I should have made a "which 360 game will sell 1 million next" the day before the numbers came out then put COD 4 and I would've already won my own thread ;/
MontanaHatchet (on 17 November 2007)
Gee, that was an easy million seller for the 360.
RaptorGTA (on 15 November 2007)
awesome game. Simple...
Lost tears of Kain (on 11 November 2007)
Wow, 1st vote gave it a 1
Fucking fanboys go away
moedameyer (on 20 September 2007)
If you liked COD 2 more than COD 3 then you will surely like this game. I've been playing the MP beta since the first day, and to sum it up, COD 4 plays like COD 2 except its more modern (duh), has way better graphics (especially lighting), and you can create custom classes (choose your grenade type, weapon, weapon add-ons, weapon skins, special abilities, etc.) and more.

If you liked Call of duty 2, you will love this game. Must buy.
waterbear91 (on 12 September 2007)
*NO INFO CAUSE I DONT HAVE 100 POST...* This game looks awsome. Single player and Multiplayer...if you have not seen videos or anything about the game you must check it out. This game is a must buy!
