Activision Overinflated Some Modern Warfare 3 Numbers
Last week, Activision told us something crazy. They said that 3.3 million people had played Modern Warfare 3 at the same time over Xbox Live.
Apparently, that was not true.
The truth is that the maximum concurrent players they had over Xbox Live was a more believable 1.4 million, while that larger number was referring to players, total, in one day.
That’s kind of a big difference, guys. Those two things are not the same thing at all. At all. But that’s OK. We don’t really care about this number anyway. At least you didn’t lie about something important, like the amount of money you grossed on the game. That would be more offputting. So we cool, Activision.
