Modern Warfare 2 breaks UK records

GTA IV's record is smashed

Activision and Infinity Ward's Modern Warfare 2 has broken first-day UK sales records, Chart-Track announcing that the game has already sold 1.23 million copies.

Apparently, this sees the game double the previous record, set by Grand Theft Auto IV, which sold 631,000 copies on its first day.

The grand day one total is 1,230,588 copies - one in 24 UK homes having bought the title on average.

The game could sell five million copies worldwide this week. More soon.
