Modern Warfare 2 Conquers Amazon

Apparently Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 was the best selling item on last year.  Not the best selling game, but the best selling thing. Incredible.  Here’s the rest of the chart, there’s some oddities in there for sure, but to see a videogame conquer the mighty Amazon sales charts (where it wasn’t even the cheapest) is great news for the industry.  Isn’t it?

Brian McBride, Managing Director at, said video games had “climbed up the food chain in terms of quality” while DVDs had “become a little passe”.  He said “clearly with the success of Nintendo’s Wii console, many families have a games console somewhere in the house. It’s no longer just for teenagers. Lots of the family sit around and play games”.
