Activision knew this was going to happen.
The publisher today announced the first batch of downloadable content for Infinity Ward’s impossibly popular shooter “Modern Warfare 2” has sold over 2.5 million units in its first week.
According to Microsoft’s figures, the DLC sold a million in 24 hours, with the other 1.5 million trickling in later in the week.
Lest we forget, the DLC was set at the gargantuan rate of $15 so when Activision ups the ante to $20 with Modern Warfare 3 (just speculation) we’ll have no grounds of defense. Ouch.
