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.
I wasn't planning to buy black ops because of MW2 hackers, noob proners while shooting and such.
But I'm glad I bought Black Ops, it's definately better than MW2 and MEdal of Honor.
I'll pick this one up when it hits the bargain bin, and will still wait for MW3. Hopefully there's a little talent left at Infinity Ward.
