Need an idea of just how big Modern Warfare 2's launch has been? Here's one: Over the past week, Activision shipped three million copies of the game... to the United Kingdom.
Yes, while most other games on the planet would be happy to ship one million copies across the entire planet, three million units were sent just to the UK, a nation with a population of just over 60 million. So when you consider there are over 300 million people in the US, 33 million in Canada, 80 million in Germany, 21 million in Australia... yeah, you get the idea.
There are a lot of copies of Modern Warfare out there. Wonder how long it'll take to sell them all?
