Black Ops: First Strike dated for PS3/PC

Sells 1.4 million in 24 hours on Xbox 360.

The First Strike DLC pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops launches on PlayStation 3 on 3rd March, publisher Activision has confirmed.

A firm PC date hasn't been announced, but Activision promised that it would be available before 31st March.

Over on the Xbox 360, which got first dibs on the pack last week, the DLC has set new platform records with more than 1.4 million downloads in the first 24 hours on sale.

Impressive, and not entirely undeserved. Eurogamer's Will Porter awarded it 7/10, proclaiming it "a well-balanced collection of different styles of map."
