Modern Warfare 3 - the latest title in Activision’s popular Call of Duty series of first person shooters - went pass the $1 billion sales mark in just 16 days, Redmond Pie has learned.
There's no doubt that Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 was one of, if not the most anticipated game in history. Just ask one of the workers at the 13,000 worldwide outlets providing special midnight openings for last Tuesday's launch - or indeed one of the many millions of avid gamers that queued up to grab their copy.
Just a year after Call of Duty: Black Ops shattered video game sales records by selling over 7 million copies in its first 24 hours, its successor - Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 - has obliterated the franchise’s own sales record by reportedly selling 9.3 million copies in the first 24 hours. The game is now set to become the highest selling game of all time.
The wait is finally over - and the 30 million+ COD fans can finally breathe a huge sigh of relief as the world's most anticipated game has finally begun retailing worldwide: Modern Warfare 3.
Whenever a popular game like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is getting close to release, there's always a great amount of hype in the air.

Activision has released a new trailer for the upcoming game Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. Although there are still many unanswered questions, gamers are finally getting a feel for what the game will look like.
