Analyst says: Call of Duty 4 can sell over 4M copies

cod4shotAccording to analyst Todd Greenwald, Call of Duty 4 has been selling like hotcakes, even to the point where it’s selling out in retailers around the U.S.

He said, "Call of Duty 4, which was released two days ago by Activision, appears to be in extremely high demand and is sold out across the board. We’ve checked with a wide range of retailers (GameStop, Wal-Mart, Target), and only pre-orders are being satisfied-stores are otherwise sold out of the title."

Since the game has been flying off the shelves, Greenwald estimated that Call of Duty 4 might break records and hit 4 million copies sold around the world. He also talked about how reviewers and critics were responding to the game.

"Thus far, the game has an average score of 9.5/10 on, which is almost unprecedented and puts it on par with Halo 3. It is certainly the highest-rated game Activision has ever created.

Keep in mind, CoD4 is launching on four times as many platforms (360, PS3, PC, DS) as Halo 3 (360). Halo 3 has so far sold about four million units. A year ago, Call of Duty 3 sold about three million units, and we anticipate this year’s version could do four million or more."
