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.
