    Modern Warfare 3: Fastest to make 1 Bilion Dollars

    Activision:

    Game publisher Activision Blizzard announced on Monday that Modern Warfare 3, the latest entry in their blockbuster shooter series, topped $1 billion in worldwide sales a record 16 days after its release on November 8th. That beats the previous record holder, James Cameron's 2009 3D film "Avatar", which took 17 days to reach the mark
    It took Activision 16 days to make 1 Billion dollars off a terrible game. Well played, Activision, well played. So, when are we going to see some of that money being used to give back to the gamers?

    Wow... just imagine if they used that money to improve the CoD series instead of paying actors to do those lame commercials all the time.

    regardless of my feelings about activision or call of duty or even specifically MW3, 1 billion is a cool number to hit.

    1,000,000,000

    and yeah you're right, not all but quite a few ppl who buy cod are sheep, like a friend I used to have, but don't anymore because he turned into a sheep and just followed the trends like a mindless sheep
    FOr example he says : Black Ops, modern warfare is the best anything else is gay

    Apparently some people like it...

    I really don't think its a bad game. I've been having a lot of fun with it in the spec ops portion. Even the occasional online game is fun just takes some getting used to as the play style of people is a bit different.

    Its a good day for gaming when a single game can rake in a billion dollars. Shows how gaming has come to dominate the entertainment industry.

    Those only been like 2 or 3 live action commericials that had actors in it iirc. And I find them funny/good. Also, if there has only been a few live action trailers with actors, how can that be all the time :stare:
