    Activision was the number one U.S. console and handheld publisher for calendar 2007, according to The NPD Group. The company increased its market share for the year to a record 17.7%, a 7.2% increase over the same period last year. Additionally, Guitar Hero was the best-selling franchise in the U.S. for the full calendar year and Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock, which was released on October 28, was the #1 title across all platforms in both units and dollars, according to The NPD Group. For the month of December, Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock and Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare were the #1 and #3 best-selling titles respectively in dollars across all platforms, according to The NPD Group. Robert Kotick, Chairman and CEO of Activision commented, "For the first time in our history, we were the #1 U.S. publisher for the calendar year. We are well on our way to delivering sixteen years of record revenue growth and by far our most profitable year ever."

    a lack of games from Konami and Rockstar is the only reason Activision have this accolade. I think GTA and MGS will change it this year.
