What’s the best-selling game in the US ever? Black Ops…
Well, I didn’t really expect to hear this today, but there it is. I hope you are all proud of yourselves. It looks like people really enjoy themselves some Call of Duty: Black Ops. It’s a pretty fun game in small doses, but I personally can’t really stomach the Call of Duty series anymore. It would appear that the majority of you out there do not feel the same way. According to NPD analyst Anita Frazier, Black Ops has surpassed Wii Play as the best-selling game in the US… ever. Black Ops sold a whopping 5.6 million copies on its first day in the UK and US. Wii Play has apparently sold 13 million copies total and whatever Black Ops has sold must obviously be higher than that.
Nice work Activision and Treyarch. It paid off. I guess it’s sort of a shame because there were so many other great games that came out last year that deserved a lot of attention, but Black Ops effectively smashed the hell out of those games with its insane advertising blitz. I guess it just goes to show you having a lot of money will get you whatever you want… and really, I can’t think of any message more important than that.
Soak it in Nintendo fans… Black Ops > Wii Play. I know it’s tough to face, but I had to say it.
