My fascination with computers and hardware came out of a fascination with video games. I started on consoles and migrated to gaming PCs as time went by. Eventually the PC and its related hardware were as interesting to me as video games, such is the evolution of many a gamer and hardware enthusiast.




Of all the video games I have played over the years, some of my most favorite have been in the Call of Duty franchise. The latest game in the franchise, Modern Warfare 2 launched this month and racked up over $500 million in sales during its first five days of availability.


Activision has now announced that the entire Call of Duty franchise has surpassed $3 billion in sales around the world. That is a lot of video games sold and makes the franchise one of the most successful ever. It should also guarantee that fans have new CoD games to play for the foreseeable future.
