Forums - Sales Discussion - Black Ops II sells 8m day one apparently

According to one daily newspaper in the UK, they have today revealed that Black Ops II has shifted 8 million units globally on PS3 and Xbox 360 in just 24 hours of going on sale, putting any rivals to shame.  Black Ops managed to squeeze around 5.6 million units for the same period and the recent Halo 4 sold an impressive 3 million in its opening day but this is an Xbox exclusive. Assassin’s Creed 3 also sold well with numbers in its opening week around 3 million on consoles. Still, when Activision reveal the full numbers, which undoubtedly they will do with much gusto, it will be interesting to see how the momentum has carried through the week.

Lets just hope it ends well. (unlike with Modern Warfare 3 and Infinity Ward *knocks on wood*)

Yep, without any surprise, this is the biggest release of the year (and might possibly shatter the "all time" record).

Week 1 will be crazzzzyyyyyyyyy

I hate that this game sells so well when people complain and rage about t every year. Then reading people commenting about it on facebook who doesn't even play games just to get a little attention annoys me even more.

The number that complain about are vastly outnumbered by those that love it.

Game seems fun. The maps are much more colourful. The UI and weapons are tweaked. Will have to get used to that. Killstreaks are harder to get compared to MW3. One thing that remains constant is people saying bad words and blaming it on lag, hacks, camping etc when you kill them. When they kill you though it is complete skills. Muahaha.

OT: Massive sales :O
