Call of Duty: Black Ops is not just a popular game. It's a very popular game. More popular than Modern Warfare 2 was one year ago, its creators said today.
Activision executive Thomas Tippl told an audience of investors in New York that Black Ops has sold $US360 million worth of copies in its first 24 hours of release in North America and the UK this week, compared to $US310 million in the first day of release for Modern Warfare 2 a year ago. That's an increase, of course, though Tippl didn't specify whether Black Ops actually sold more copies (the games are sold in a variety of editions, all at different prices.)
