Call of Duty: Black Ops breaks UK opening day records

Black Ops kicks off the record-breaking in emphatic style

Call of Duty: Black Ops racked up record day one sales in the UK, beating Modern Warfare 2 opening day sales in the process.

According to UKIE/GfK Chart-Track, Black Ops which launched at midnight on Tuesday earlier this week, sold 1.4m units in the UK which works out to £58m in revenue.

In comparison, Modern Warfare 2 in the same period sold 1.23m units generating £47.7m revenue in the process.

Yesterday, Activision announced that Treyarch's cinematic shooter had broken all opening day entertainment sales records taking an estimated $360 million (£223m), $50 million more than last year’s Call of Duty offering, Modern Warfare 2.

With Black Ops now likely to surpass the success of last year's CoD instalment, Activision also told MCV that launching the game on Xbox 360, PS3, DS, and Wii platforms would help to surpass the record-breaking success of Modern Warfare 2
