Within its first 5 days of being on sale EA's Medal of Honor cleared 1.5m copies sold worldwide, but no dollar bills were mentioned at the time.
Now EA CEO John Ricitiello spills that the reboot has in fact earned a very handsome $100m in revenue for them, and it's not even Christmas yet.
While EA certainly wants to reclaim much of the first-person shooter genre back with their long-running Medal of Honor franchise, they still have a great journey ahead of them to challenge opening sales numbers of their biggest rivals.
Activision raked in $310m with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 from US and UK sales within its initial 24 hours of launching at retail. Microsoft pulled in a whopping $200m day one for Bungie's Halo: Reach which is exclusively available on one platform.
Medal of Honor is predicted at shifting a total of 3.5m copies by 2010's end. The full holiday season is yet to kick in and DLC will of course help draw in additional revenue for EA's rebooted MOH. Have you picked up a copy yet, videogamer?
