“Call of Duty” sees launch day sales of $500 million

The latest “Call of Duty” videogame had worldwide sales of more than $500 million in the first 24 hours of its release, a new record, game publisher Activision Blizzard Inc said on Friday.

People said the pressure was on Call of Duty after Halo 4 saw $220 million in sales on launch day. I guess Activision responded.

  • Halo is only available on Xbox where as CoD is available on PS3, PC and even Wii. So not necessarily a fair comparison.

    • Don’t popular games drive adoption of the hardware?
