Activision’s Call of Duty 4: Modern Warefare has been announced as the winner of the top-selling video game title across all platforms for 2007. There was nothing close as they were exclusives.
Halo 3 you’re thinking had to have beaten it right? It had sold over one million copies before the game had released! Well this was a great feat,but what really hurt Bungie was that it is a Microsoft exclusive game. This may be the reason Bungie has left Microsoft, although they lose the rights to Halo. It sold a total of 4.82 million copies in 2007.
Then you have the big game for the Wii, Wii Play. Selling 4.12 million copies makes you wonder does Nintendo have to put any effort into it’s games to sell them? This is a rather comical game for those of you that don’t know. You get to play a bunch of mini games. That’s not exactly what I’m complaining about. I’m saying the graphics are horrible yet people keep buying them. This was an obvious knock-off of their Wii Sports title which to say the least was fun, yet again a low quality game.
How many copies of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warefare were sold then? They reported selling just over 7 million copies across all of the platforms. Retailing at between 50-60 dollars each that is quite a lot of money. Don not expect the CoD4 franchise to end anytime soon as it is the best realistic war game on the market.
What do we have in store for us in 2008? Just wait and see, or you could read my article on up and coming 2008.
