$775 million to be exact. That's so much money, I am almost tempted to declare it an illicit amount.
I bet Bobby is happy, and so am I, since unlike vocal internet men, I think MW3 is a fantastic product.

I respectfully disagree. Haven't touched the multiplayer or spec ops but from a campaign stand point it was lack luster. I borrowed it from a friend and returned it to him the same day... Too short and no where near as good as Call of Duty 4's campaign, Modern Warfare 2's and even Black Ops.

@Mikewrestler5: Read the article. It destroyed the record. Largest five day gross used to be 650 million, set by Black Ops. This one grossed 775 million in five days. I'm actually rather disappointed with the news, as unsurprising as it is. Doesn't directly affect me, but it certainly affects the industry.

Voting with your dollar doesn't seem to be terribly effective when there's 775,000,000 votes against you.

How unfortunate. The campaign was hideous and dumb. No pacing. Just non-stop "eleven". And I was ready for a wild ride . . just not . . . this. Then, the multiplayer felt like a huge step back. After one day, I assumed COD had finally made a huge misstep and while it may have big sales numbers (purchases based on liking previous titles rather than merit of the current one), it would be regarded as a real disappointment. 
Instead, I keep reading reviews that it is "clearly the best in the series and another big improvement over the last game".
I can't even wrap my head around it. Campaign aside, have these people actually played these shitty and ugly maps? Have they seen the return of predator missile rapes and heartbeat sensors?
We're just sending the complete fucking wrong signals and they're left thinking they hit it out of the fucking park . . . ugh.

Guys, be nice. It takes WAY less than that to rent out the Staples Center. But to rent it out AND have all those acts play...

I can't help but wonder what this thread looks like to people who aren't up on all the memes from last year's E3 livecasting.

I bet we all look crazy.

so where is the funny news story on GB about this?

Alex doesn't mind snarking it up for every other news story and here is something that is actually kind of funny to the GB community for once and we get nothing.

Ironic thread seeing as you don't have to look too hard for a "Call of Duty is for boys who are virgins and don't like cool games like I do like Ico and they're sexist and don't judge me because I'm a woman, etc" article on her blog... Google SVGL, there's one on the front page. Again.

Okay, okay. I must have missed some epic Giant Bomb meme this time, because I surely do not understand the "<>"
