Black Ops Day-One Sales – Higher Than Modern Warfare 2

By Updated on

Last year Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 broke sales records, now we are hearing that Black Ops has outdone MW2′s impressive day-one sales figures.

Exact figures are not clear, however Activision‘s “internal estimates” suggest that 5.6 million copies were shifted by Novemember 9th (taking into account pre-orders), last year in the same time-frame 4.7 million copies of MW2 were shifted upon the game’s release date.

At the moment exact figures have not been revealed, however I am sure that Activision’s estimates are not too far away, I would love to see how many of these 5.6 million people are entirely happy with Black Ops.

I’m sure that this trend will continue each year, despite Black Ops not being perfect it is still a great game and should keep me busy, however I can’t help but look forward to see what the next game in the series does to better it.

Will you buy the next fame in the franchise? Or has Black Ops put you off?

    They're making so much money out of this game and yet, they get it out full of bugs. Never had that with problem with God of War, Uncharted, Infamous, MGS4 or any of the PS3 exclusive title. Its really a shame seeing them being so happy about all the money they're getting while the game is plague with problems. Same thing for Fallout Vegas, lots of sales, lots of bugs.
    Congrats! I wish you'd put as much efforts into making a game equal on every console and bug free rather than counting money.

    Sam, you say that black ops is full of bugs. What bugs? I have played the game since it’s release at midnight and think it’s a vast improvment on what modern warfare 2 was. I’m glad that infinity ward has went there own way because I feel treyarc make the better versions of the series for activision and I’m really happy with this new instalment.
