Black Ops hits a million XBL users

New COD enjoys unexpected popularity.

Call of Duty: Black Ops' servers have had a busy day, with nearly one million Xbox 360 users logging on to check out Treyarch's highly anticipated shooter during its first 24 hours in the wild.

The developer's community manager Josh Olin tweeted, "Am I getting solid intel? Is there really almost 1,000,000 players on Xbox Live right now??"

Impressive figures when you factor in all the PC, PlayStation 3 and Wii gamers no doubt getting stuck in too.

Perhaps we shouldn't be too surprised though. Yesterday, a GameStop exec told Eurogamer that it had taken more pre-orders for the game than any other title in the store's history.

If you're still on the fence about whether to enter the fray, you might want to look towards Tom Bramwell's 8/10 review for guidance.
