COD Black Ops best selling UK game ever

Modern Warfare 2 surpassed.

Call of Duty: Black Ops has edged past Modern Warfare 2 to become the best selling game ever in the UK.

Call of Duty: Black Ops has sold, as of 25th June, 3,722,411 copies, according to GfK Chart-Track data supplied to MCV.

Modern Warfare 2 has sold 3,702,410 copies.

Black Ops, released November 2010, got off to a rip-roaring start, selling 1.4 million copies in one day in the UK. That's nearly double Enslaved's worldwide lifetime total.

Black Ops went on to become the best selling piece of entertainment in the UK last year - bigger even than DVD/Blu-ray sales of Avatar and CD/download sales of Take That's new album Progress.

Call of Duty: Black Ops became the best selling US video game of all time earlier this year.

It's no surprise then that EA, with Battlefield 3, wants a piece of Activision's lucrative pie. Can Battlefield 3 spoil the annual Call of Duty party this autumn?
