Black Ops II Outsells Black Ops, But Not Modern Warfare 3
Call of Duty: Black Ops II is yet another blockbuster for Activision, as if that comes as any gigantic surprise.
But although the title managed to outsell its predecessor in the first week of availability, it apparently didn't top last year's Modern Warfare 3.
According to VGChartz, Black Ops II moved 11.22 million units in the first week; the 360 version sold 6.21 million, a 55% market share. The PS3 version sold 4.61 million and the PC version sold a little over 400k. This means that BOII outsold the original by 5% (or about 550,000 copies), but the first-week record remains with MW3, which sold 13.45 million in the initial seven-day period. These stats are just freakin' astronomical.
Of course, the numbers aren't official until we see them from the NPD or Activision but they're probably pretty accurate. Are you one of the many millions to have already played Black Ops II?
