Call of Duty: Black Ops to Sell Over 18 Million Units Just This Holiday, says Analyst

Call of Duty: Black Ops ships in just a few days, and its launch could be absolutely massive. Activision Blizzard continues to say that it will be the "biggest entertainment launch of the year," and it (combined with the WoW: Cataclysm expansion) is a big reason the company believes it will have its "most profitable year" ever.

I wouldn't doubt it. It's not an Infinity Ward CoD but it looks great and has been getting good buzz

danmachine2787d ago

If modern warfare 2 is to go on then black ops is a sure fire winner. i loved WAW.

PRHB HYBRiiD2786d ago

hes right it's not infinity war.....cause iw sucks treyarch ftw!

TekoIie2786d ago

You obviously dont know talent when you see it. If it werent for IW there would be no such thing as [email protected] or black ops. Seriously stop hating on IW they only made one bad game (which isnt actually bad at all but just has a few balancing problems) and everyone thinks they're the worst devs ever.

EYEamNUMBER12787d ago

i actually think people are putting too much faith in this game
i actually see it selling below than what everyone is saying it will

BX812786d ago

I think people are tiered of MW2 and will migrate to this game

CombineElite2786d ago

As a Pc gamer hell I might even buy it just because Treyarch promised dedicated PC servers unlike Nofun Ward.

Sure Black Ops is just some arcade console port but hey if they fixed everything that was wrong with MW2 and keep the solid game play of MW1 then hell Black Ops should be good.

A fun game is a fun game and if MW34 35 36 and 37 are fun then I'll buy them too. Besides I have Arma II to play if I want realism, Stalker for my FPS/RPG, HL2 for the greatest game experience ever and Battlefield for teamwork and scale and last but not least Black OPs for just shooting a MOFO in the face.

Happy gaming!

You know, it is as easy to put a "t" in "nothing" as it is an "f" and a "i" instead of "u". Maybe leaving out the "h" and "g" is excusable but honestly, are you that thick? A skank could type better.


The graphics in this game are worse than MWF2... There are less Guns and The guns are overpowered with no recoil. There are no dedicated servers to this game and the same overpowered Perks like last stand to give noobs an unfair advantage. The story mode is a bunch of different opps with no real storyline (metal of Honor 2.0) The maps are boring and campy and the same maps you see in every shooter... at least MW2 had some of the best maps in any shooter because you had to use tactics and the map to your advantage.

From my time in the beta Black opps was not memorable... good but not great.

BXbomber2786d ago

When the hell did black ops have a beta?? Dude stop talking out of ur ass, are u even aware of the things ur saying?

TekoIie2786d ago

So they had SP in the beta??? Stfu and go troll on a site where people might actually believe you! :P

shovelface882786d ago


Jesus you are trolling hard.

First of all, the PC version DOES have dedicated servers.

Second of all, it's the SAME EXACT ENGINE, so the graphics are of the same quality.

Lastly, the perks are definitely NOT the same at all. If you had actually done any research, you would know this.

Go troll somewhere else.

So sad to see so many people brainwashed by this game.

-Alpha2787d ago (Edited 2787d ago )

What do you have against people buying the game and who are you to pass that kind of condescending judgment? Black Ops is looking great, a lot of people like the series, why is that so hard for you?

VenomProject2787d ago

Black Ops' looking great is a matter of personal opinion.

I think it looks like Modern Warfare 2.5.

Again, personal opinion.

Thecraft19892787d ago

Maybe because its campaign is shorter than its last gen counterparts or the fact that its online is just loads of noobs going around with sniper no scoping people or stabbing them from 50 feet away its terrible game when compared other shooters that get less attention.

-Alpha2787d ago (Edited 2787d ago )

Explain how it looks like MW 2.5

Why do you consider it half a sequel and not a full sequel?

Even if you aren't interested how can you deny that the devs worked hard on the game? This is what I don't get it, you don't have to like the game but the community ignorantly says it's just a reskin.


Oh, so you actually played Black Ops and know about the online?

iceman29292787d ago

If people said MW2 was really MW 1.5 and you say Black ops is MW2.5, does that make BlackOps MW 1.75 or perhaps the "real" MW2?

SpitFireAce852786d ago

Alpha-Male22 i happen to agree with scar20.
I also think to many great games get passed up
by gamers who think COD series is the only
game for them i remember a time when all sorts
of genera sold days all you see is
FPS after FPS Oct 2010 MoH reboot,Nov 2010
CoD:BO milk away activision..and here is 2011
Crysis2,Homefront,Bulletstorm ,KZ3,R3,Ghost
Recon:FW,Brink,Rage and of course another COD
in Nov 2011.Thats 9 FPS games thats a over
saturated market of FPS games...

-Alpha2786d ago (Edited 2786d ago )

It's nothing to me, but it's something to people who seem to constantly bash anyone who likes COD.

Even though the market is oversaturated there is still a division of good games and bad games. COD isn't a bad franchise. CoD4 was great. WaW was great, MW2 had its faults, and BO looks even better. Yet jealous fanboys will only resort to using MW2 to pain the whole franchise.

Ducky2786d ago (Edited 2786d ago )

I don't get how an over-saturated market is reason to dislike one game series.
FPS genre has always been over-saturated, this isn't anything new.

If anything, I'm grateful that at-least Activision releases only one CoD each year. EA has released BC2 and MoH, while announcing two new Battlefield (you missed Battlefield3 in your list) games thus far. The majority of those games are being done by one developer too. THAT's saturation.

When I'm deciding to buy a game, I see the features and see if the devs behind it put some effort. Them putting an effort to making a quality game is what motivates my decision to buy the game. It doesn't matter if the past iteration was released a year ago or 10 years ago.

yea cod is probably the most overrated game of all time. The only game to come close is halo but this is more overrated.

SSKILLZ2787d ago

more overrated and more fun than halo

ZBlacktt2786d ago (Edited 2786d ago )

Very well said.... it's easy to hack,cheat,glitch and boost on is probably a big factor in it's popularity. But I won't hate on the game. Many like it just like I like Metal Gear.

there is no way in hell it will sell that much this holiday.

SSKILLZ2787d ago (Edited 2787d ago )

CrazyForGames2786d ago

you must have a big family and a hell of a lot of friends to be able to make the game sell 18 million plus in 2 months

SSKILLZ2786d ago (Edited 2786d ago )

No genius ,I'm not the only one on this planet that has family and friends that also talk and know about the game,Fail.

EYEamNUMBER12785d ago
