Modern Warfare 3 Sells For Over $1,000 On eBay

November 4, 2011, By Christian Davis

There have been quite a few people getting a copy of Modern Warfare 3 early and maybe the best choice would be to sell it on eBay rather than throw it into your console. A recently ended eBay listing for an early copy of Modern Warfare 3 was sold for a whopping $1,725.

That’s around 20 times the price of the retail cost. The most bizarre thing about this purchase aside from the price? The game drops in four days. Yes, that’s right the game comes out in four days and some hardcore Call of Duty fan bought it for a ridiculous amount of money.

If anything, this shows how much of a fan base Activision has with their modern war shooter. People are willing to pay close to $2,000 for a copy of the game and that’s definitely something any publisher would want to hear. The sequel to Modern Warfare 2 has been constantly on the minds of first person shooter fans and it will obviously sell faster than any game this year. Battlefield 3 shipped 10 million copies in their first week and sold 5 million in that time. Those are great numbers for any game.

Modern Warfare 3 will probably sell that much on it’s launch night, November 8th. Would you ever spend that much money on a single video game? Let us know in the comments.
