We’ve seen how some of the Modern Warfare 2 boycotters went about stickin’ it to the man. But how about in Australia? Did the alleged boycott have any impact on sales?
To judge by the chart positions below, probably not. It’s absolutely no surprise to see MW2 take the top two positions, and no surprise to see the 360 version outsell the PS3, and even less of a surprise to see the PC version in there as well.
However, what we don’t know is exact numbers. We’re still waiting on Activision to release their launch sales figures for Australia, as they’ve already done for the US and the UK.
Expect to see New Super Mario Bros., Wii Fit Plus and Wii Cricket continue to hang around the top of the chart all summer.
Next week should be interesting. Will Modern Warfare 2 hang on against Assassin’s Creed II?
