The latest video game in the Call of Duty series racked up a record-breaking $400 million US in sales in North America and the U.K. on the first day after its release.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, a first-person shooter set in modern times, was released at midnight Tuesday at 13,000 retailers around the world.

Within 24 hours, it had sold 6.5 million copies of the game in North America and the U.K. alone, reported the game's Santa Monica, Calif.-based publisher Activision Publishing Inc., Friday.

Activision said it's the third consecutive year that the Call of Duty franchise has broken first-day video game sales records.

It seems like MW2 with different maps, honestly. I haven't played it, but I've watched youtube videos of it, and meh.

If the old game plus some new maps nets $400m, it may not be a great game but it's a great business model!

There is grandeur in this view of life
Where one becomes many through struggle and strife,
But the Mother of Mysteries is another man's call:
Why is there something 'stead of nothing at all?

So... Battlefield it is then?
We are alive, so the universe must be said to be alive. We are its consciousness as well as our own. We rise out of the cosmos and see its mesh of patterns, and it strikes us as beautiful. And that feeling is the most important thing in all the universe.
