Bestseller Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare has seen over 10 million unique online users on the Xbox 360 and over 4 million on the PS3, according to detailed online statistics revealed by Infinity Ward community manager Robert Bowling.

As of January 3, the game has seen 10,006,606 unique users on the Xbox 360, writes Bowling on his regular blog IAMfourzerotwo.

Total game sales for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC versions had already hit 10 million as of June 2008, making Call of Duty 4 one of the most successful video games ever.

Detailed statistics for the PlayStation 3 version were not available, but Infinity Ward was able to estimate approximately 4,381,276 unique users on the PlayStation Network, pushing the multiplatform online console title to over 14 million players. The PC version of the game was not mentioned.

Other data revealed for the Xbox 360 version alone included the fact 7,111,508 people (71.1 percent) had completed the game's F.N.G. mission - more than the entire population of Hong Kong -- although the figures also suggest that 28.9 percent of players never got past the first level.

A total of 5,654,643 people had beaten the game on any difficulty level (46.5 percent), which, as Bowling points out is more than the population of Finland. Only 283,632 people -- 2.8 percent of players -- had completed the Airplane section on Veteran difficultly.
