COD: Modern Warfare 3 Sets New Five-Day Record


In its first five days, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 became the first entertainment property to set five-day launch records for three consecutive years.

According to Microsoft:

  • More than 7.0 million multiplayer hours were logged playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 by the end of launch day, November 8, a 19% increase over last year’s 5.9 million multiplayer hours logged playing Call of Duty: Black Ops last year’s launch day.
  • More than 3.3 million unique gamers played Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 in one day on November 8 up from 2.6 million unique gamers for Call of Duty: Black Ops.
  • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 set a new record for concurrent players on Xbox LIVE with 3.3 million simultaneous users on November 8.

And Modern Warfare 3 made more than three quarters of a billion dollars in its first five days!

That’s crazy!

What does this say about our culture?

With other parts of the world in such dire need, what the heck are we doing?

Don’t get me wrong, I love video games, and these are in now way “Church statistics,” but it did make me pause and think and I wanted to hear what the ChurchMag community thought.

Please share!
