Black Ops Sells a Boatload

Posted: 06:28PM

Call of Duty: Black Ops released only a few days ago, and details of its tremendous debut are now available. The game brought in $360 million in its first 24 hours on sale. The Call of Duty series continues to be a license for Activision Blizzard to print money, as Black Ops sold even better than Modern Warfare 2. Black Ops sold 5.6 million copies, while Modern Warfare 2 sold 4.7 million copies, or $310 million. That game went on to sell $550 million in its first week, and it will be interesting to see how Black Ops stacks up at the end of a week. Video games are coming on strong lately with other hits like the Grand Theft Auto and Halo series, bringing in big money for the companies that make the big hits.
