According to initial estimates from Activision, it looks like they have a mega-hit on their hands with Call of Duty: Black Ops. Everyone knew it would do well, but sales of the new game are beyond expectations, having sold 5.6 million copies on its first day. That beats last year’s record set by the Modern Warfare 2 launch of 4.6 million copies sold.
It’s the second year in a row that the Call of Duty franchise has set day one launch records. A shame no one is reading this since you are all playing the game.
