Love it or hate it, the numbers are historic and that most certainly qualifies as big news.
Call of Duty: Black Ops already has the distinction of being the best-selling video game of all time in the U.S.; now it's time to give the mega-huge blockbuster from Treyarch and Activision that very same crown in a different region.
According to new results from Gfk ChartTrack (as cited by CVG ), Black Ops is now the best-selling game of all time in the UK: the sales total has reached 3,722,411 as of June 25, which tops the previous record-holder, Infinity Ward's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 , which registered 3,702,410 copies in the UK. As for the US, Treyarch's 2010 production hit 13.7 million units, which may seem downright insane but hey, such is the way of the biggest thing since sliced bread. Can Modern Warfare 3 set the records again…?
The overall worldwide tally may be approaching 21 million, by the way.
