    That's what I though too but then, we have this on TA:
    Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare : 10,982 tracked gamers
    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered : 8,144 tracked gamers

    So I'm not too sure about that, now.

    There is no 360/PS3 version, That is the simple reason sales are less

    Nailed it I'm sure. Give it time though, franchises like this with diehard fans will sell consoles.

    Disagree. 4 of my friends have played the remaster but only 2 have started IW. Only 1 has played both.

    Not nailed at all. 360/PS3 sales only accounted for 8% in opening week. Opinions are not facts. wink

    I'd be more interested to read which game sold the most units in its first week.

    All I can find is B1 had more players in the opening week than B4 and Hardline doubled.

    I find it hard to believe that only the deluxe editions of an unbelievably popular franchise beat out all sales of another unbelievably popular franchise.

    Wow I'm actually pretty surprised at that. The last gen was just zombies and multiplayer, right? The only two modes that really make enough profit for Activision to care too much about? I guess more people upgraded consoles than I thought.

    So I'm not too sure about that, now.
    These could still be off as many got MW Remastered for the multiplayer, and the achievements are single player so they could have played tons without the site registering that they started it.

    Also, my guess is many at least booted up the game they payed for, IW, to see what it was about & then moved on the MW Remastered multiplayer with friends.

    That seems a likely scenario and would account for the skew.
    Fear is the mindkiller.

    From the source of this article:

    However, it’s not enough to outperform last year’s ‘Black Ops III’ launch week with sales down 48.4%. There is no Xbox 360 or PS3 version this time round, although even comparing just PS4 and Xbox One; sales are still down by 43.6%.
    Here be dragons.
