TVGB: "That didn't take long; Activision has just sent over the Day 1 sales estimates for Black Ops. Let's dive right in."
So it didn't beat halo: reach's Day 1 afterall. Halo: Reach: 3 million on 1 console Black Ops : 5.6 million on 5 platforms (PC,DS,WII,PS3,360)
Who knows how even the sales were. I'd say there's the slimmest chance still. The real question is, do we really care? :) Both games are selling well.
This is relevant to my interests.
The title only sold around 6% of its sales on Wii, DS and PC.. Great sales anyway! No it DID beat Halo Reach. If Reach were on the PS3 too the 360 fanbase wouldn't care that much of the title anyway! So, Raikiri your comment is very random. If Heavenly Sword 2 were made an PS3 exclusive instead of multiplat Enslaved it would have sold way better too. Heck even Tekken 6 would have sold better if only on the PS3.
Last time i checked Acti make money from PS3 and PC, so they count. Anyway this third time in row VGChartz are debunked officially by Sony MS and Acti.
It's not THAT valid (VGChartz). BUT it gives an indication that it sold way less on the PC, DS and Wii. "... Xbox 360 takes the largest proportion of sales with 59%, 36% for PS3 and the remainder on PC, Wii and DS" http://gamrfeed.vgchartz.co...
u dare to mention Vgzhartz after they "reported" that it sold 7 million on day 1? Go hide in a corner.
lol ''it's not THAT valid'' 7 million vs 5.6 million Can anyone give me a VALID source that the 360 version alone sold more then PS3,WII,DS and PC combined?,Cuz only then it could have beaten halo: Reach's day one.
bunch of morons fighting about Activision makes Money out of this and that Reach sold this and that Vs this and that. smh
@Raikiri: "Can anyone give me a VALID source that the 360 version alone sold more then PS3,WII,DS and PC combined?" i know its not a real source, and im not pretending its an exact science - but within 24 hours of release, there were 3-3.5 million people playing Black Ops online on Xbox Live. that gives you at least some indication of the number of copies it sold on the 360.
To be fair they are talking about the US and UK only, and even though they are the biggest regions I think the rest of the EU like COD more than Halo. Although I think its safe to say it would definitely be close. @Hellsvacancy I agree with you about COD, after playing 10mins of COD2 back at the 360 launch I've never played another COD and probably never will. Halo on the other hand is a lot better imo but that said I still haven't got round to completing Reach yet.
Both COD and Halo Reach r rentals imo I dont see the big fascination with the COD games, their fun for a week or two online but thats as far as they go, people will now play Black Ops pretty much EVERY day now till MW3s out next November, oh dear Guess im more of a team based player, Bad Company, Team Fortress (dont play TF anymore) etc, And yes, i WILL b buyin K3, it looks SUPER!
VGchartz reported 7 million...
More like guessed, I think they relay on a psychic squid.
Read the article - 7 million worldwide, 5.4 million USA+Can+UK compared to 5.6m for Activision
@ bmw69. Show me in the article where it mentions VGChartz. Maybe you should read the article. Even if VGChartz was somehow able to miraculously get close to actual numbers - the think the other 99.8% of the time they're not even close (they are just a fan run site who don't have any concrete sources, what do you expect) should really stop most thinking people from using them as a source for anything. Even Greenberg ripped on VGchartz on twitter yesterday. No one in the industry uses them, no one quotes their numbers, no one takes them seriously. It's a fan run site. Get over it.
With 60% of sales being on 360 and these figures being from just NA and UK, that's a total of 3.36 minimum.
Thats bad logic. You have no point
Xbox takes 60% of sales, I think it's around 3 million on the 360 day 1
There's a problem with your logic, Raikiri -- you don't know how many bought it for their PS3 when if it was exclusive to the 360 would have instead have bought it for that. I don't know why we keep treating everyone as if they only own a 360 or a PS3. What we do know is that CoD is the best selling third-party IP on HD consoles this generation. We also know that Treyarch is finally out from under IW's shadow.
I'm proud to say I am not one of those 5.6M.
Wtf does reach have to do with this? Dbag.
But everyone who wants Halo, has an xbox!!! Anyway, well done for selling so many games, shame that Black-ops online is unplayable on my PS3! Back to Fifa 11.
Over hyped game....
Now i swear i just seen an identical article saying the game sold 9 million hmmmmmmmm?
Your paradoxical words make my head implode.
Next year MW3 is going to be even bigger.
Next year won't be MW3 will it? Isn't it the Sledgehammer developed CoD?
Ya. And I really dont think imma gonna buy from Sledgehammer. CoD is already starting to get kinda old so when you mix in a brand new dev that is probably gonna skrew something up, then it just adds up to a bad game.
IS there any of old staff at infinity ward staying on to join sledgehammer team ?
It sure doesn't help when you see "Cod Multiplayer now free with every copy of Cod sold" be grateful it's free is I guess what they are trying to say.
Add me to 1 million sales, i dint buy REACH i dont like kiddie games. Even this i find i wasted money on but will play it till EA releases Vietnam for BC. Than i'm putting this up for sales after finishing single player for chevos.
Good game so far. I got 11 kills with my puppies.
The game is pretty good, plenty of competition. Less camping and I haven't been Noob Tubed yet. I wish more people ran "Spy Plane" or UAV, but it's still a more solid outing and more fun then MW2. I am enjoying it.
A lot of people are hating on the game because they think it is a tired franchise, but I thoroughly enjoyed the campaign. It had a cohesive and compelling story. I haven't tried the multiplayer yet...
Looks like VGChartz was right on the money: http://gamrfeed.vgchartz.co... (5.4m for North America + UK vs 5.6m from Activision)
I say 3 millions on 360 2 millions on PS3 And the remaining between wii and pc. I went to the midnight launch and there were like 80 ppl and i didnt see anyone get the wii version.
I thought another article here said it sold 7 million copies hahahaha everyone is lying to make it look good
7 million vs 5.6 million. 5.6 is still a crap load though
The article says 5.6 million ONLY in NA and UK. Now correct me if I'm wrong but I recall VGChartz saying this: "Breaking the data down, we estimate over 3.6 million units were sold in the USA, 1.4 million units in the UK, over a million units in continental Europe and 350,000 units in Canada." Now, factor in the PC digital sales and VGChartz is almost spot on!
jeez dont be an arse i am so sorry ok i didnt read the article cause i thought that activision would be talking about world wide sales not just north america. And i still dont trust VGs charts.
Well, sorry if it looked as I was trying to be mean but I was just trying to show you that VG Chartz was spot on.
Hmmmmm so I went out for a coffee with a buddy of mine after seeing Due Date (Lol funniest movie I've seen in a while) and we saw people lining up in front of EB Games. It was Midnight launch for Black Ops, there must have been at least 300 if not more .... lol anyways most of them were teens and I spoke to a few of them they said they are gonna play till 8 am and end up skipping school because their parents let them ?! o_o I felt sorry for the young girls that were bringing their boyfriends coffee and moms driving them around at 1 am in the morning just so they can play a videogame at launch. Can't you just pick it up the next day after school ? Anyways my younger brother got the game the next day, and I checked it out, and let me tell you .... graphics are garbage, and I thought it was bad in single campaign but multiplayer graphics are when worse, black ops is a rushed piece of shit, MW2 is much better IMO. How does it sell Millions in day one ? well number one - it was being advertised like there is no tomorrow number two - It's Call of Duty so it's gotta be good and number three - people just arent very smart, clear example Americans choosing president bush ..... TWICE!! that is all :)
Ya its sad that some of those moms and girlfriends were being a little too nice for no good reason... But the game is good, because sorry but MW2 is the most unbalanced game there is... Black ops removed commando perk, one man army perk and improved the pros for every perk. They also made the grenade luncher the most expensive attachment to prevent noob tubing and they also made it hard for snipers to quick scope and no scope ... Then again who doesn't skip school for a new game ;)
I broke down and ordered it on Amazon last night :( I'm weak. Medal of Honor died once this game came out.
Level 30 online with Black Ops, haven't even touched single player. This is one of the best fps this gen. Great maps, very well balanced, lots of things to unlock. And it makes a mockery of the unbalanced piece of shit that is MW2.
Absolute disgrace, flock of sheep is the best way to describe them, just shows how low the human intellect is going
dont worry its purely a system designed to craft the most putty like of minds into brain dead lemmings willing to fight wars and shoot stuff for no apparent reason and die like chickens in a factory with zero discernement.
With all that money they can fix the broken matchmaking and spawns!!!
like lambs to the slaughter. Cattle comes to mind also.
It's pretty sad how many better titles won't even get to half as much in years after their release.
Out of that 5.6 million sold ( or 7 mill ). I've seen about 3.8 million say it sucks ( PC guys ), many issues with it ( PS3 guys ) and a re skinned MW2 game ( Most of the rest ). So yes, I see them for sale already on Craigslist.
