COD Black Ops: Best Selling Game in History – Can Modern Warfare 3 Compete?

Despite being released back in November, Call of Duty: Black Ops continues to receive accolades and this is the biggest of them all. It has just been confirmed that the game is now officially the biggest selling game in the US in history.

The news has come from the NDP Group who confirm that Black Ops’ 13.7 million sales in the US beats Nintendo’s Wii Play to become the best selling game in history, as reported from CVG – quite a remarkable achievement when you put it into perspective against some of the amazing games we’ve seen over the years.

It also may be a surprise to some of you who were previously thinking that Black Ops would never touch Modern Warfare 2 in terms of both gameplay and sales, but it looks like Treyarch is having the last laugh.

The question on our minds though, is will the upcoming Modern Warfare 3 be able to top Black Ops? It’s meant to be releasing in November, just like Modern Warfare 2 and Black Ops did, and it will also be going head to head with Battlefield 3 which is worth a mention.

Do you think Modern Warfare 3 will beat Black Ops, or has Treyarch’s game set a benchmark? We all said at the time when Modern Warfare 2 was breaking records that it wouldn’t be beaten, so don’t be surprised if Modern Warfare 3 ends up doing the same. Let’s hope Activision and Infinity Ward, what’s left of them do not disappoint.

    Can Modern Warfare 3 compete? Are people really thinking it wont? Black ops sales came from hype. Modern Warfare 1 & 2 had great gameplay…well up untill people brought in the mods. The problem is, MW3 is already basically trying to bring in hype with all this Infinty Ward, even though the leads are gone and Sledgehammer & Raven Software are basically in charge. So either way sales will be big, but we can only hope they wont try to overhype it on that alone.
