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.)
