IGN: According to the latest U.S. sales data provided by research group NPD, Black Ops sold 8.4 million copies combined on Xbox 360, Wii, PC, DS, and PlayStation 3 during its launch month.
It came out on the DS too?
And there going to include that in the sales numbers? Really?
Of course it did. It came out on every frigging system available. I'm pretty sure I saw a copy for Microwaves and another one for Toasters at Wal-Mart the other day.
dont forget the copy for ovens...that ones a hit for the parents
7th doesn't sound really impressive :S i wonder who's number 6,5,4,3,2 and 1.
7th of ALL TIME not impressive? You are hard to impress my friend, lol. Off the top of my head, above it will be wii fit mario 3 new super mario bros DS Mario Kart wii Modern Warfare 2 and i THINK san andreas.
The original half-life sits at 9+ million retail sales. Half-Life2's retail sales are 6.5 million Considering those numbers don't account for steam sales... I'd say, those two games would be on the list. However, the numbers in the IGN article are for US only. Whereas the ones I mentioned are worldwide I think.
Its not total sales, just sales after the first month.
list of best selling games http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... number 2 is Super Mario Bros. – 40.24 million number 1 is Wii Sports – 41.65 million units how much did black ops sell 8.4 million so far ? i don't see how its the 7th best selling game ever :S that would kinda be a lie.unless I'm completely wrong.maybe if its sales keep up and i don't think it will because a new one comes out every year people will drop black ops and stop buying it and buy mw3/the next cod game.

lol, thats not even a game just a gimmick. It just feels like a product you would find on QVC or HSN. Its for soccer moms.
i had to read it to figure out what they are talking about...apparently they are just talking about the 7th best selling game ever in US only
it would if you realize its ALL TIME and only been out for a month...i didnt buy it, but thats impressive for treyarch
NOOOO!!! There are so much more games that deserve those kinds of sales.
But majority are little kids.
Us console gamers, yes ps3 360 and Wii should unite and stop buying call of duty. I agree it does not deserve those kinds of sales.
After playing it for awhile, it's fun, but I don't think this franchise deserves the hype nor the sales it gets. .
World of Warcraft did pretty good as well. ;)
Best COD MP since COD 4 imo.
Whenever you live off IW's games & ideas, you're bound to get noticed.
It's far from being the 7th best selling game of all time.So far from it, it's not even in the top 20.
call of doody.
That's a lot of hype for a undeserving game
Considering the online is half broken this is amazing. Sometimes i can click join game and ill be playing right away other times it can take up to 10 mins just to get into a game. and considering the game doesnt disconnect in the middle of the game you can finally start playing.
Best sales for movies, books, or games are never for the best movies, books, or games. FACT. the reason ? people are brainless, and sheeps brainwashed by tv adds.
... I think the game is fun. =/ I think therefore I am ... brainwashed? Edit: "Best" game is subjective. Even I have trouble picking out the best games. I just clasify games as either good or bad. BO, from my experience thus far, would be in the good category. TV 'adds' can't make you keep playing a game, can they? =/
Any game can be fun even if it is not the best game.
yep, you are most definitly brainwashed by Kotick. It's ok, all you have to do is end your own life. There is a knife in the drawer (Don't worry, we can just wish you back with the Dragonballs).
I disagree. I think Harry Potter is one of the greatest series ever and I don't think that because of the sales. I've read the books several times and am damn near studying them and they are great books. It's one of the few times that the best-selling books happen to be fantastic works of literature. And then there are books like The Da Vinci Code which are not very well-written but still sell like crazy.
The only COD game that deserves these kind of sales is COD4 and COD2.
Overrated is the only word to describe Black Ops
How about "crap"
Less is more. Unless you're some rich prick like Kotick.
I really hope this FPS craze dies out soon. I mean one good one is cool every few years, but nobody needs to keep buying the same game every year. COD is turning into Madden......(not sure why people keep buying that one either)
I am loving it. I know how you must be feeling though. that's how i felt during the RPG craze of the PS1. I HATED those stinking RPG's...still do. I played a couple Ff games and at the very first random battle bullcrap it lost me. and at the take a turn to hit each other and i must just stand there and watch a guy doa spell that takes 5 minutes and not just run....yeah, u get the point, i hate rpg's. But as you said, it won't last forever. the next gen will be the gen of dating sims :)
I decided to check some sources to see if this was accurate, there were so many more games above 8.4 million copies that I just stopped cataloging. Almost all of them are Nintendo games too.
