If preliminary reports are to be believed, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is shaping up to be another Call of Duty mega-blockbuster, as it seems the title has sold an astounding 9.3M units on the very first day. This would be the largest videogame launch in history. The Xbox 360 version alone reportedly sold 5M day one units.
UPDATE: Activision has announced 6.5M day one sales, which is still a record breaker.
