Over 5.6 Million CoD: Black Ops Copies Sold Day 1

Blowing out of the water box office juggernauts such as "Avatar" and "The Dark Knight" as well as beating Modern Warfare 2's opening sales, Call of Duty: Black Ops was a definite hit on tuesday.

After a huge success with Modern Warfare 2, Activision launched a major ad campaign for Black Ops spreading through gaming websites, television and even billboards. The hype surrounding the game was so massive, that even a group of armed robbers decided it would be a good idea to steal 100 copies.

The excitement for the games launch definitely paid off for Activision as they sold over 5.6 million copies in one day, netting over $360 million dollars.

Did you contribute to these numbers? Let us know what you think about the game below.

    As a die-hard CoD fan with over 1000 hours in both CoD 2 and 4, no. This franchise has begun to bore me to tears, and kind-of-sort-of-dedicated servers aren't enough to make up for the fail that was MW2's multiplayer. I really can't believe that many people bought the game.

    Sorry to say this, but so much for Activision suffering from the massive Infinity Ward walkout.
