CoD: MW2 set HUGE records.
First off it sold almost 5 million copies in 24 hours.
Second, it made $310 million in those 24 hours in North America and the UK. No, not the world, North America and UK.
It made more money than the biggest movie release, last year's "The Dark Knight."
Flat out--Biggest release in entertainment history. [Activision]
UPDATE: Kotaku breaks down other entertainment media vs. MW2.
