Call of Duty: Black Ops Breaks UK Sales Record

Call of Duty: Black Ops has surpassed series predecessor Modern Warfare 2 to become the best-selling game ever in the United Kingdom, selling over 3.7 million copies since launch.
Activision and Treyarch's Call of Duty: Black Ops is now the biggest selling retail video game of all time in the United Kingdom. According to tracking firm GfK ChartTrack (as reported by UK site MCV), Black Ops sold 3,722,411 copies between its November 9, 2010 release and June 25 of this year. The previous record holder was Infinity Ward's series predecessor Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, which has sold 3,702,410 copies since its November 10, 2009 release. "This is an outstanding achievement for the development team at Treyarch and the amazing Call of Duty community," said Activision UK's Andrew Brown in a statement. Black Ops quickly hit $1 billion in worldwide sales soon after release, faster than Modern Warfare 2. According to predominantly U.S. retailer GameStop, preorders for the next game in the series, Modern Warfare 3, are outpacing those of even Black Ops.
