Game-Debate News: MW2 Smashes UK Sales Record

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 has broken sales records by selling 1.23 million copies on the first day of its release - almost double that of the previous record holder Grand Theft Auto IV.

Activision have predicted CoD could sell 3 million copies in the UK before Christmas with 10 million copies being sold worldwide.

The media hype and the price war between retailers have perhaps helped add to the first 24 hours sales figures.

Some analysts have predicted MW2 could sell 11.7 million across the world in its first week - just short of the 12 million units the game was expected to sell during the whole October to December quarter.
