Modern Warfare 2 UK's best-selling game of all-time

MW2 overhauls Brain Training to take number one spot.

Modern Warfare 2 is now the best-selling computer game ever here in Blighty. Activision’s first-person shooter has stolen first place from the Nintendo DS’s Brain Training, having already become the fastest-selling game of all time, shifting £242.4 million worth on day one.

It’s all the more impressive considering MW2 only went on sale 41 weeks ago. It’s only slipped from the top ten games roster in three of those weeks, and currently sits at number 18.

Plans for a Modern Warfare 2 follow up are already being talked up, with studio Infinity Ward plotting a sequel for 2011. In the meantime, Call of Duty: Black Ops lands on 9th November, with a further COD title in the offing too.
