Let me be honest, no I did not think Black Ops could outperform the herculean day one sales of Modern Warfare 2, I mean how could it. Well, I now stand corrected. Based on the latest Activision estimates, their latest upgraded Modern Warfare clone has amassed over $360 million in sales and counting from both the US and UK combined.
This accounts for 5.6 million copies being sold on launch day. This number crushes the day one sales of Modern Warfare 2 which managed to push 4.7 million copies. Based on these early results it’s safe to say that Activision will once again be singing all the way to the bank throughout the holiday season.
