Do yourself a favor and read that above line one more time.
Using our remarkable math skills, we've concluded that in 55 days, Call of Duty 4 sold more than 99.8% of titles ever sell in their entire lifespan. Activision sent out a press release dubbed "Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Ranks #1 Title in Units Worldwide for Calendar 2007," in which they go on to report that according to The NPD Group, Chart Track and The GFK Group, Call of Duty 4 has already exceeded seven million units, with sales skyrocketing every single day.
Will Kassoy, senior vice president of global brand management at Activision commented, "We're very excited about this achievement especially given so many competitive titles this year. Consumer and critics agree that Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare is one of the best games ever created and further establishes Call of Duty as one of the premier brands in the industry."
Surprisingly, the title came third in US sales behind Halo 3 and Wii Play, but still managed to outsell them worldwide, thanks in great part to the ever-expanding European market.
