Call of Duty: Black Ops has shattered theatrical box office, book and video game sales records for five-day worldwide sell through in dollars. It has broken last year’s record set by Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. Two other records have also been set. More than 5.9 million hours of play were logged by end of launch day, November 9. This was on Xbox Live. And, more than 2.6 million unique gamers played it on launch day. Also, on Xbox Live.
To show its support of the massive Call of Duty: Black Ops Xbox Live community, Activision will launch all map packs on Xbox 360 first. The game has also been a success on the PS3.But second place is the first loser. With its record breaking sales, Call of Duty: Black Ops has already made video game history. And the sales just prove, video games are a forced to be reckoned.
