Games sales went ballistic.

The most anticipated First Person Shooter (FPS) of the year has broken some records. Convincingly. This time it’s sales records and sales in a day.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 set the highest record sales in a day, making over $500 million. This was recorded from the launching day, globally accumulated from various countries, various platforms and not only in the US.

Notably, the COD Franchise Sales Figures Has Been Increasing With Release of Each New Ones

The feat has left many mouths agape to the staggering figures produced from just a single game title. This has even exceeded beyond movie ticket sales of Star Wars franchise and even Harry Potter .

Additionally, their “Surprise” trailer on YouTube received around 32 million plus viewers since its launch. Not bad for a short trailer with some recognisable Hollywood and YouTube stars in it.
