Call Of Duty: Black Ops Sets Another Sales Record

It's even hard for us to wrap our heads around just how amazing the sales levels of the latest Call of Duty game have been. After becoming the best-selling game launch ever, it now also takes the cake for best first-week sales. $650 million by the end of its first week on the market, for the five day period from Tuesday - Saturday.

Once again, this number eclipses the previous record holder which was the previous game in the series, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. That game rang up $550 million in sales in its first five days. That was just one year ago.

"Call of Duty has become the first entertainment property in history to set five-day launch records for two consecutive years across all forms of entertainment," said Activision CEO Bobby Kotick in a statement.

Black Ops has set all sorts of records across the board, including being the most-played Xbox Live game on launch day, Amazon's most pre-ordered product of all time, and setting sales records at GameStop.

The Call of Duty franchise has definitely become the most valuable franchise out there. Every time we don't think it can do any better, it does. Even Activision didn't expect Black Ops to outsell Modern Warfare 2, but it has.

What will Activision have in store for us next? Can the record-setting franchise continue its awesome run ad infinitum? Only time will tell.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
