Black Ops II is making big money
If you're a fan of the video game franchise Call of Duty, you may be wondering how well the latest installment in the franchise is doing. Black Ops II achieved a significant milestone 15 days after its launch. By November 13 the game racked up $1 billion in gross sales.
So far over 150 million hours have been logged online playing Black Ops II via Xbox live and the PlayStation Network. The huge amount of money the video game grossed in 15 days makes it faster to the $1 billion mark than the massive hit 2009 3-D movie Avatar.
It took avatar 17 days to reach the $1 billion mark. Activision is using this as a breaking point to prove that people are increasingly turning to video games for their entertainment dollar.
