Modern Warfare 3 is best day-one selling game ever, Elite fail’s to launch

Activision’s money making series Call Of Duty has once again broken worldwide records for the biggest day-one launch for a video game ever. This year’s entry in to the franchise, Modern Warfare 3 has supposedly surpassed last year’s record-breaker, Call Of Duty: Black Ops which made £225 million on its first day. According to sales data from Activision, Modern Warfare 3 sold 6.5 million copies within its first day on the market (roughly £250 million). If that is
true, then MW3 actually fell short of analyst’s predictions, which had the game pegged at 9 million pre-orders… Now if only Activision didn’t feed us all the same crap they did the year before, gave the DLC a reasonable price and offered
something new within the game itself, we would be happy to contribute to such sales.

This year however, Activision has found more ways to take that hard-earned money from your wallet. Introducing Call Of Duty: Elite. For those of you who don’t know what Elite is, it’s an online service which gives a user access to their Call Of
Duty statistics across multiple COD games, the ability to take part in tournaments or clans, and share HD videos of your greatest kills. The basic use of this service is free, but of course there is a premium version available to those willing to pay a yearly subscription.

Unfortunately for COD fans, Elite has failed to launch successfully; having been developed by Beachhead Studios for the last 2 years, the service was meant to go live in time for Modern Warfare’s deployment. Due to such a demand for the service, with so many users attempting to sign up, Elite effectively crashed on day one. Beachhead say they are working around the clock to fix this and assure it will be fully operational within the next week.
