The Call of Duty franchise has always sold well, especially on the consoles. The Modern Warfare series specifically has managed to pull off some impressive sales numbers. The previous release, Call of Duty: Black Ops managed to make $350 at launch, and the series' latest first person shooter has made a record 400 million dollars in the first 24 hours of its release.
It seems that despite the lackluster graphics, the issue of the Call of Duty Elite service, and being more of the same game, Call of Duty is still something that gamers are willing to play and shell out top price for. According to Giant Bomb, the latest Modern Warfare game has more explosions than a Michael Bay movie and the gun-play is still sharp, so there are some positives to be had. Those positives make the game desirable for a lot of people with Activision selling 6.5 million copies at launch!
