Here's a huge shocker for anybody who doesn't know anything about videogames: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 has made a lot of money. The game, which is still topping charts and selling ludicrous amounts, has made over $1 billion worldwide since its release last November. That is a lot. 

In the first five days of release, the game sold an estimated $550 million, raking in more cash than blockbuster movies such as James Cameron Presents James Cameron's Avatar By James Cameron and Harry Potter & The Half-Blood Prince
