There are no shortage of people picking up PlayStation 3s and XBOX 360s, and so it's no surprise to see the Call Of Duty fanbase grow with each release.

According to UK retailer GAME, this year's Modern Warfare 3 is set to break the myriad records set by last year's Call Of Duty: Black Ops.

"Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 pre-orders are already tracking significantly ahead of Call of Duty: Black Ops at the same time last year," managing director Tom Devine said.

"We know that the Call of Duty brand and franchise has the most amazing fan-base and we've got some great surprises lined up for those who pre-order with us. We're looking forward to an incredible launch on 8th November."

Expect some huge numbers come December, then.
