"It's been a rocky year for video games sales, but don't tell that to Call of Duty.

Game publisher Activision Blizzard announced on Monday that Modern Warfare 3, the latest entry in their blockbuster shooter series, topped $1 billion in worldwide sales a record 16 days after its release on November 8th. That beats the previous record holder, James Cameron's 2009 3D film "Avatar (**http%3A//", which took 17 days to reach the mark. "

I thought it was terrible- the sound is god aweful. gameplay to close to previous! and no improvement in graphics- just some niffty modes and stats. BF3 is glitchy but at least showed signs of improvement- not to mention a 3GB patch that has seemed to help a lot- o and did I say vehicles. but we all know that already.

Fewer people bought the game, then went to see the film though, surely?

£8 - 10 vs £40 / 50+

Anyway I hate these type of 'omg this product made so much money in such few days'.

Concentrate on the actual quality of the product, not the amount of money it's made off people.

Personally I thought the GFX were much improved over BlackOps. Gameplay was lacking tho @ Just around 5 hours for the main mission on Regular mode, and around 24 hours actual gameplay on Hardened Mode. I mostly love it for its multiplayer though.

There's a video going around, that showed assets from the last game, being reused in the new one. We're not talking about small props, but bldgs you can move in and out of. That pretty much summed up how I felt about the game. Same old, same old....

I thought both BF3 and MW3 were both pretty flawed, gameplay wise, but at least BF3 has advanced the genre visual wise.
