Unsurprisingly, the records are already starting to fall.
It's likely the first of several records Activision's blockbuster Call of Duty: Black Ops II will set in the near future, so don't be surprised to see a whole of similar headlines in the coming weeks and months.
Today, mega online retailer Amazon.com has announced that Black Ops II broke their record for the most pre-ordered video game of all time on any platform. It broke the record held by last year's Modern Warfare 3 (another big surprise), although they didn't provide exact numbers for either game. In addition, GameStop has previously revealed super-high pre-order numbers as well, and they're expecting BOII to become the biggest launch in their long history. By the way, just in case you had a bout of temporary amnesia, the new Call of Duty arrives tomorrow. Don't take the day off work or anything.
And by the way, if you're in the area, Amazon will be hosting a BOII launch party at the House of Blues on Sunset Blvd. in Los Angeles.
