Activision 'humbled' by the launch of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2

GameZone writes, "If you're an FPS fan, you probably don't need me to remind you that Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 released today. The highly-anticipated sequel, which is being called "the most ambitious Call of Duty ever", has already shattered pre-order records set last year by Modern Warfare 3. Activision obviously hasn't yet revealed the numbers of Black Ops 2, but did say its on its way to a "historic launch" — one which has "humbled" the publishing giant." (Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Activision: "I'm so humbled grateful $$$ I love you."
Snookies12  +   1111d ago
Yeah, "humbled" isn't the word they're looking for... Obviously they knew it was going to sell millions... -_-
sinncross  +   1111d ago
Then maybe you should have put some effort into the PSV version.. like seriously Activision...
Pushagree  +   1111d ago
They will probably be humbled when GTA V beats that record too. We need a good game on the best sellers list for once.

Isnt Halo 4 on the Best Sellers list

Yeah they're humble reviewers once again gave them a pass and consumers will flock in a bevy to buy cod as well.

Shame that a piece of crap like this outsold great games like Red Dead Redemption, Uncharted 2 and The Witcher 2.

@Pushagree: Agree, GTA V will break this record next year, hopefully.

Of course they're greatful for your money, any publisher would be.

Are you implying Activision is the only publisher to love money? Let me remind you they are one of the few publishers that have yet to implement online passes. Think about that for a second.

Activision? "Humble"?

Doubt it.
Intentions  +   1111d ago
They are going to be 'humble' for Modern Warfare 4, then year after Black ops 3.

The single player was awesome, it was different from any other cod. Everyone should definitely play it up to the colussus level.
MattyG  +   1111d ago
Why just up to Colossus? The whole thing is awesome. But Colossus was my favorite.
Bobertt  +   1106d ago
Some people only like multiplayer unfortunately, so playing the entire story might seem boring to them and they wont even try. But if they play up to that level they will see a lot of what single player has to offer and most likely want to finish it then.

Haha, right. Good one

Bobby Kotick must have stepped out of the sweat sh... I mean office, providing another employee at Activision with the opportunity to quick post such a msg to the fans. Please, there's not a humble bone in Bobby "Douchebag" Kotick's body, so it most certainly couldn't have been on his watch!

Somebody in activision watched Charlotte's Web recently....

Oh it's also impossible for them to be "humble" "grateful" "pleased", there money hungry business drones who think it's okay to sacrifice quality and slap a new name on an old game and call it new

Activision = Worst company in the universe

Bro, EA is winning that battle.
Summons75  +   1111d ago
Nah, EA maybe scummy but I'd much rather buy their few good titles than activisions yearly crap. Lose lose battle so choose the one with quality games, as few as they maybe.
2v1  +   1111d ago
next year when the best call of duty is out they probly say the same
Farsendor1  +   1111d ago
well hopefully they make a new engine for next gen and change up the multiplayer.

im not buying black ops 2 until next year
Mikeyy  +   1111d ago
It just sucks that Infinity Ward gets the first crack at the Next Gen COD, instead of Treyarch.
Farsendor1  +   1111d ago
iw isn't really the iw that made cod4 or mw2 i think they should close iw down and have trey bring out a cod every 2 years
MasterD919  +   1111d ago
Bobby Kottick is busy changing into a golden diaper right now somewhere I'm sure...

Good for TreyArch. They've already surpassed IW...and IW is probably already working on a sub-par version called MW4.
