Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Becomes UK's Best Selling Game

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 has now become the best selling video game in the UK ever.

Tech news site Tech Radar reported on Monday that, according to data released by online sales monitoring firm Gfk Chart-Track, Modern Warfare 2 has overtaken Dr Kawashima's Brain Training on the Nintendo DS to become the best selling video game in the country, only 10 months after its release.

A product of Activision, Modern Warfare 2 took less time to overtake Nintendo’s memory test game than Dr Kawashima's Brain Training took to surpass Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

Dr Kawashima's Brain Training took nearly 36 months to overtake Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

Although Modern Warfare 2 has caused controversy and debates over the 'realistic' violence and gore shown throughout the game, it was still completely sold out within 24 hours of its release in the UK - the most successful game launch of all time.
