Black Ops sold how many this week?

COD: no need to fish for compliments.

In one week, Call of Duty: Black Ops has sold an unprecedented two million copies in UK shops.

GfK Chart-Track totted earnings from those sales at £81.9 million.

Black Ops sales were 13 per cent higher than those of Modern Warfare 2 (1.8 million) and the new game made 21 per cent more money (£67.4 million).

To put things into perspective, that £81.9 million figure represents more money than the entire UK all-formats chart made in the past two weeks combined.

Call of Duty: Black Ops launched the same week as Microsoft's Kinect. Between them (and all other videogame software), the money-take this week was a record-setting £113.8 million. Christmas week of 2008 had held the record until now.

The UK all-formats top 40 was reported on Eurogamer earlier this morning.
