Modern Warfare 2 UK sales top 1.7 million

Chart Track has revealed that Infinity Ward juggernaut Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 has sold a whopping 1.7 million copies in the UK in just one week.

The stellar shooter smashes previous records set by Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto IV, which managed 927,000 in the same time frame. Apparently, the Xbox 360 version of Modern Warfare 2 shifted the most copies, accounting for one million units sold. In total, the game grossed GBP £67.4 million.

Unsurprisingly, the sequel muscled its way to the top of the UK All Format Charts, knocking former contender FIFA 10 off the top spot in the process. Our review of Modern Warfare 2 can be read here.
