Activision clarifies concurrent Modern Warfare 3 Xbox Live figure

It was 1.4 million people, not 3.3 million.

Activision made an error when reporting the astonishing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 week-one statistics last week.

Modern Warfare 3 was not played concurrently on Xbox Live by 3.3 million people.

Modern Warfare was played concurrently on Xbox Live by 1.4 million people.

Activision clarified that the 3.3 million figure referred to the record number of people playing Modern Warfare 3 on Xbox Live arcade in one day. Black Ops set the previous record of 2.6 million people in one day.

Which version do you play, PS3 or Xbox 360?
