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.
