"Call of Duty:Modern Warfare 2 has exceeded our expectations and shattered theatrical box office and video game records," said Robert Kotick, CEO of Activision Blizzard. "There are only a handful of entertainment properties that have ever reached the $1 billion mark, which illustrates the power of the Call of Duty franchise and mass appeal of this game."
Also, ELSPA just confirmed that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 was the best-selling game of 2009, followed by FIFA 10 and Wii Sports Resort.
