Call of Duty:Black Ops Surpasses Records Far Beyond Expectation

If your boy friend has recently purchased the newest edition to the Call of Duty franchise "Black Ops", be prepared to end your relationship now. He won't be seeing you, or the light of day for quite some time.

The seventh edition to the Call of Duty franchise has surpassed predicted sales of any other video game, so far. It has earned 1 billion dollars in sales since it's November 9th release, just 42 days ago. It set the record for biggest launch, best opening week and fastest selling video game in history, beating the previous installment "Modern Warfare 2". The first day of sales Black Ops earned 360 million dollars in the U.S and UK. Black Ops beat out the opening of Avatar or any other movie for that matter, combined, including Titanic.  Activision, the company which created the game was surprised at it's untouchable success.

"Even more remarkable than the number of units sold is the number of hours people are playing the game together online which are unprecedented", says Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing.

Call Of Duty is a competitive, interactive game. It mostly takes place during the World War II era, with the exception of Modern Warfare I and II which are set in modern times. Call of Duty Black Ops is set during the Cold War. Black Ops is rated M for Mature, for blood, gore, intense violence and language. It's available for a variety of consoles including X box 360, PlayStation 3, Nintendo DS and personal computers.
