“Call of Duty” Sells $550 Million in Just 5 Days

November 18, 2009

Wow! “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2” scored record sales of $550 million in its first five days.

That number just blows my mind! I’m sure that a few of my friends helped raise that total 🙂

From Reuters:

The game, a “first-person-shooter” that lets gamers portray elite soldiers hunting down targets in locations ranging from South America to Afghanistan, beat last year’s blockbuster “Grand Theft Auto IV” from Take-Two Interactive Software Inc. which sold more than $500 million in its first week.

Activision did not say how many units were sold in the period. Last week it said it sold 4.7 million copies for sales of $310 million on its first day in the U.S. and United Kingdom alone.

Get Ready For Lego Rock Band

April 21, 2009

Lego Rock Band has officially been announced for the 360, PS3, Wii, and the Nintendo DS. All versions will hit near sometime near Christmas later this year.

From Ars Technica:

The game “will allow families, tweens and teens to experience a wild journey to rock stardom where they can ‘Build a Band and Rock the Universe.'” Was the original Rock Band not already pretty family-friendly, as long as you pick the right songs? Do we really need to dissuade our children from rocking?

“Players will become rockers as they embark on a journey to stardom that the whole family can enjoy as they work their way through local venues, stadiums and fantasy locations on Earth and beyond that mimic the imaginative settings that the LEGO world offers,” the game’s information states. “Also continuing the LEGO ‘build-and-play’ gaming experience, players will be able to create their own LEGO Rock Band style as they customize their minifigure avatars, band and entourage, including roadies, managers and crew. LEGO Rock Band supports Rock Band instruments, as well as other music game controllers.”
