Call of duty smashes records

On the day Call of duty: modern warfare 2 was released last week, the video game raked in $310 million in North America and the UK, selling more than 4.7 million copies, writes Philadelphia Inquirer.

That amounts to a record release for any form of entertainment, eclipsing the one-day mark set by Grand Theft Auto IV last year.

Sony is already in the process of implementing stereoscopic 3D into its line-up of HDTVs, and the company hopes to get a PS3 firmware update out around the timeframe these new 3D displays are rolled out, to let early adopters witness the advantages of the technology from day one.
