The game's first week sales have only previously been bettered by 2010's original Call of Duty: Black Ops, last year's Modern Warfare 3 and 2009's Modern Warfare 2.


So the worst COD launch for Activision in four years then? I'm sure you like the way you spun it better, though eh?

Not exactly the kind of game people queue for at launch. More the kind of thing kids will get from aunties for Christmas.

'Only' the 4th biggest launch of all time? Could it be... That CoD over-saturation is setting in...?

it's you who's spinning it, because you deliberately mis-quoted by leaving this line out:

"although it should be noted that each of those titles launched on more than three platforms."

also, the fact that the 3 titles it didn't beat, were the 3 biggest launches EVER. so, 4th biggest launch EVER, i doubt activision are really that fussed about :lol:

Ironically it's the best COD yet. Single player's good, zombies is good, and multiplayer is good.

Oversaturation has well and truly hit, because this game is bloody brilliant.

Actually the press normally spin things negatively. We've been lucky this time. Besides this year its pretty good, although I have missed out on MW3 so im not cod'd out.

That's absolutely terrible! Do you think we should have a whip round for Activision? I'm sure you wouldn't want to see them go without... :wink:

Thing is I bet you this Blops will end up grossing more than MW3 and perhaps Blops1, it is clearly the best online for a while.
