According to internal Activision estimates, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 shattered day-one launch monetary figures of every other entertainment form to the tune of nearly 5 million copies sold on the game’s first day of availability.

Available at over 10,000 retail outlets, Modern Warfare 2 sold approximately 4.7 million copies to the tune of over $310 million, according to Activision, making it the biggest launch in history across all forms of entertainment. Halo 3, GTA:IV..can you taste it?

Now, it’s important to consider MW2 is a $60 pickup, not the $10-ish a movie goes for today, but it’s impressive nonetheless.

The kicker? These figures come from North America and the UK alone.
