Black Ops is the Biggest Entertainment Launch Ever (probably)

Call of Duty: Black Ops earned $360 million in real money on day one in North America and the United Kingdom. That tops Modern Warfare 2′s opening day total of $310 million in those territories, and it seems reasonable to think that it will eclipse MW2′s $400 million worldwide day-one earnings once the full numbers are released down the line. By the way, that $360 million represents 5.6 million copies of the game, which is a lot of copies. Also, $360 million is more than Halo: Reach made in its first 17 days. Watch your back, FIFA 11; Black Ops is hot on your tail.

Isn’t amazing to think that Sam Worthington is in the biggest movie ever and what might end up being the biggest game ever? How f**ked would that be, particularly considering he’s terrible in both of them? (Hint to the world of entertainment: nobody is ever going to be excited about your thing because Sam Worthington is in it. Also, he couldn’t do an American accent to save all of existence, so stop making him play American.)

Phil are you trying to rub it in my face or is it just that moderate gamers are just…people who like to play a well made crappy game. Just surprised how so many people bought the thing, only way I played the title was when my bro got it and said “was just going play it with his buddies”, now I hate the game extremely hate the game read the review I left for it. Now I only play it with my bro when he lets me cause I want to spend time with him, and apparently its the game he is playing. Now the only good thing that was in the multiplayer(you–>”OMG he is saying the game is good after he wrote the bad review?) yes you heard me say something good about the game…is the split-screen mechanic that Warhawk for the PS3(F*#%ING retarded gaming companies renaming the game the same title cause they think its cool!!) did but its on ranked games. Now that is pretty cool and I think Treyarch got most people to buy it because of that mechanic. I think that FPS titles should do this more often. But NO CO-OP SINGLE PLAYER CAMPAGIN. Big miss for a game that you want to play with friends. Now I have never seen the single player mode played and I have only played the online, but isn’t Call of Duty about both. You want to give gamers a more fun experience for a 60 dollar price tag then put the most effort in it for making it enjoyable for local and online play!! Like motorstorm did but online has no split screen. I think Warhawk for the PS3 and this title are getting something going and getting close to something that will have it all!!
