Black Ops Is Biggest-Selling Game Ever in UK

Tell me about the numbers! 

In just over seven months, Call of Duty: Black Ops has become the UK’s biggest-selling game ever. As of 25 June, Treyarch has successfully shifted over 3.72 million units of the Cold War shooter. When you break it down, the figures are mind-boggling: that’s approximately twelve copies of Black Ops sold every minute in the UK alone. So successful has the game been that it has dethroned its record-holding predecessor, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, whose sales stand at 3.70 million copies as of the same date since 10 November 2009.

Commenting on the success to the tune of The Imperial March, Andrew Brown, MD of Activision UK said: “This is an outstanding achievement for the development team at Treyarch and the amazing Call of Duty community.” He then excused himself before being whisked away to a ‘moon’ near Alderaan.

You can safely bet your house and children on Modern Warfare 3 topping that record when it releases on 8 November.
