Black Ops II – Your Time, Their Money

By
Posted on December 6, 2012 AT 06:11am

Call of Duty: Black Ops II has officially surpassed $1 billion in retail sales. And it only took 15 days to do it. Surprised?  To give you some perspective Modern Warfare 3 reached $1 billion in sales after 16 days. Not too shabby for a franchise title that people moan about being a rehash of the previous Call of Duty game (that’s a generic statement that can go for any CoD game released at any time). If you want another little factoid to tuck in your hat you should know that since the game launched more than 150 million hours have been logged for online play between Xbox Live and PlayStation Network.

What are your thoughts on the numbers? Are you more surprised by the profit Black Ops II is pulling in or the hours people have been playing it?
