    Default Modern Warfare 3 hits $1 Billion in Sales

    Modern Warfare 3, the first-person shooter video game, passed $1 billion in sales in just 16 days, according to Activision Blizzard, the game’s distributor. Modern Warfare 2, an earlier installment of the game, took 60 days to reach the same milestone.

    The sales did not just shatter previous video game records, but also surpassed benchmarks for movie sales. The popular 3-D movie “Avatar” took 17 days to reach $1 billion in sales.

    Interesting how video games are such a force in the entertainment industry, but I hate when they compare what they gross to movies. Average price of a movie ticket is about $8 whereas COD: MW3 goes for $60. Still impressive though.
