Let's be honest with ourselves, we knew that the new Call of Duty was going to sell well. It should come as no surprise then that Activision released a statement today saying that Call of Duty: WWII sales have hit half a billion dollars in its three-day launch weekend. That's a cool $500 million+ of sold-through units around the world.

One thing I hate that they do is how they compare it to theatrical film releases. You're comparing a game that is, at its cheapest, $60 (USD) to a movie that has tickets that are maybe $10 a pop. Regardless, over $500 million is still a huge number despite the silly comparisons to totally different forms of media.
