Modern Warfare 2: 3M copies shipped to UK

Immense shipment served to satisfy huge demand into Christmas

Activision has shipped a colossal 3million copies of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 to UK in a bid to satisfy the inevitable rush for this year's biggest game.

This enormous shipment should keep the game on shop shelves throughout the launch-day rush and well into the Christmas buying season, according to MCV.

GTAIV currently holds the UK five-day sales record with 900,000 copies - a figure Modern Warfare 2 is widely expected to beat this week.

Activision celebrated the launch of its epic shooter with a flashy party in London last night, with a giant screen displaying a countdown to midnight when the first copies of the game (not sold before street date, that is) would have been handed over to eager gamers.

CVG was there, taking pictures of Dizzee Rascal and Danielle Lloyd among other celebs in attendence. Check that out over here. And you can read our Modern Warfare 2 review here.
