A few weeks ago, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 pleasantly surprised market watchers with its strong debut in the Japanese market, selling 178,000 units in its first week across the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360.
Data from Enterbrain has now additionally confirmed that the original Modern Warfare has topped the "Best" line — similar to the "Platinum range" or "Greatest hits" re-releases in the West — on the PS3 at 88,573 units sold. The following are the available numbers for all versions of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare in Japan:
|Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare||113,957||PS3||Ubisoft|
|Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare (The Best)||88,573||PS3||Square Enix|
|Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare||54,752||Xbox 360||Activision|
|Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare (Platinum Coll.)||24,567||Xbox 360||Square Enix|
Other strong performers in the "Best" line on PS3 were Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds at 88,346 units and Valkyria Chronicles at 81,625 units. We would recommend glossing over the complete list at the link above; the remaining entries across both the PS3 and 360 are interesting.
