The new “Call of Duty: Black Ops” innovated in entertainment records this week when it generated $ 360 million in its first 24 hours on sale, again proving that the game already has a permanent place in the central market of entertainment.
To the crowd of devoted fans who waited hours in line to get the new edition of the game, the profit potential is not surprising. For analysts, put a “Call of Duty” on the island is the equivalent to the habit of connecting the TV to watch the Super Bowl in the U.S.
The game, Activision Blizzard, sold 5.6 million units in its first day on sale, according to the company. His predecessor, “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2” had sold 4.7 million copies in its first day on sale last year.
The “Black Ops” debuted this week in North America and the United Kingdom. The game costs $ 60 and works with both Xbox 360 and Playstation 3
Call of Duty (first published on October 29, 2003) is a game of first-person shooter based on battles of World War II and keeps evolving.
This game is a simulator of infantry warfare, which combines the use of weapons of World War II. The game was distributed by the company Activision and developed by Infinity Ward and continues to be distributed in new versions of different scenarios (conflicts).
Cuba criticized the game because it allows players to assassinate the former president and leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro. The site said the game would be a “new American operation” against the island.
