The busiest 48 hours in UK games retail history

Back-to-back midnight openings herald the arrival of Kinect and Call of Duty: Black Ops.

Tuesday and Wednesday next week just might be the most lucrative two days in games retail history.

On Tuesday, November 9th Activision will launch Call of Duty: Black Ops – the follow-up to the UK’s biggest selling game. The very next day Kinect for Xbox 360 hits shelves – complete with a 15 game launch line-up.

The story is too old to be commented.

What's this based on? They're just guessing that it could break retail history. In the US, Halo 3 had a bigger launch then Kinect, and Black Ops doesn't have nearly the buzz that MW2 had for example. It could make UK games retail history, but I think it's highly unlikely given the magnitude of other launches we've seen in the past.
