Call of Duty: Black Ops Sets All Time Entertainment Record

Quick- what entertainment opening has totaled sales of $360mil in one day?

Yeah, that'd be CoD:BO. Which, I just learned, is not short for 'body odor'.

The newest shooter in the Call of Duty franchise has blasted the sales of it's predecessor Modern Warfare 2 to smithereens by selling 1.1 million units more in just 24 hours. And that's not all- that total, 5.6 million units BTW, has set the all time record for an entertainment release. It seems like every year there's something that does this, but it is still impressive on some level isn't it?

I guess there won't be any problems filling up an online match then?
