Call of Duty: Black Ops Sets New Entertainment Sales Record

Once again a COD game has proven that videogames have supplanted all other forms of entertainment when it comes to making money fast.  Call of Duty: Black Ops sold over $360 million in a 24 hour time span just in the US and the UK alone!  That is retarded money people!  Most summer blockbuster films need weeks if not months to make that much money.  I doubt Avatar even reached first day ticket sales of $360 mil, and that thing went on to be the most successful film of all-time.

These sales figures equate to about 5.6 million gamers lining up and buying Call of Duty: Black Ops in the US and UK at $60 a pop.  Even though I’m bored of the franchise as a whole, I must tip my hat to Treyarch for tapping into the bank.  Now you can guarantee that Activision will keep pumping these things out year after year.  You’ve been wondering what Russian faction or terrorist group you’ll face in Call of Duty 50…
