Only 200k behind MW3. It's actually catching up to MW3. I just noticed that amazon and gamestop are selling this game at a higher price than MW3, too. Weird, but I thought BO was a better game so I'm not mad or anything.

Europe undertracked if you ask me
CoD normally sells 4m+ on 360 in europe

oops wrong page !
Kai Master (on 03 November 2012)
Is the number of sales including bundles ?
Kai Master (on 21 January 2012)
the site is totally buggy, on Global wekly the game page has not the same sales as when you click from SW Totals page... very weird !

@lordmandeep, ty looking at halo 3, you'll see legs there!
lordmandeep (on 09 November 2011)
The legs are still better than a lot of the hardcore fanbase games imo
Mr Puggsly (on 07 November 2011)
The CoD series tends to have weak legs. Probably because there are so many used copies floating around and annual releases.
yo_john117 (on 28 October 2011)
No this won't get to 15 million IMO. But there is nothing sad about it. COD can have pretty addicting MP. Campaigns are usually meh but overall it's a great game.

kids just want stop telling their friends about Black Ops do they
-girgosz- (on 29 September 2011)
I don't think it will. It has BF3 as a competition this year. :D
hudsoniscool (on 26 September 2011)
john117 it looks like this will sell 15 million which is very sad.
yo_john117 (on 24 September 2011)
Man this makes me think MW3 might be able to make it to 15 million LT
Mordred11 (on 02 September 2011)
i wonder how this will perform this holiday
Kizmi (on 25 August 2011)
5 weeks and 13 million... Massive.....
yahoocom1984 (on 28 July 2011)
PS3+ XBOX360 numbers surpassed 23 million copies with PC and WII version, this game can easily break 28 million copies mark
yahoocom1984 (on 28 July 2011)
14 m lifetime
Iveyboi (on 10 June 2011)
PS360 sales are outrageous...the San Andreas of this gen
Mr Puggsly (on 01 June 2011)
I wonder how far this will go in lifetime numbers. 15 million is my guess. If with new games every year the legs of this series are pretty strong.
yahoocom1984 (on 20 May 2011)
Best selling XBOX 360 game
Machina (on 13 May 2011)
Best selling 360 game in a couple of weeks :/

hitman2500 (on 29 March 2011)
Most laggy multiplayer ever
yahoocom1984 (on 25 March 2011)
Black Ops will sell over 27 million copies across all platforms, this is beast
newwil7l (on 20 March 2011)
Worst call of duty ever
AmericanAli (on 19 March 2011)
and now its even outsold MW2 in america....this is sad..
Barozi (on 17 March 2011)
@Kai Master: You forget that there are people that have both 360 and PS3 (I think the last study showed 10-15% have both) so the real userbase of HD owners is actually the same as the Wii
Kai Master (on 13 March 2011)
but in 17 weeks against 68... so BOps is a sales monster
Kai Master (on 13 March 2011)
...but if we convert to the same user base as Wii it would only be at 18,3M against 21.49M for NSMBW,
Kai Master (on 13 March 2011)
BO just beat the record sales pace in reaching 21.55M (PS3+360) in 17 weeks against 68 weeks for MW2 and NSMBW ! Insane !
Kai Master (on 13 March 2011)
yahoocom1984 : You forget PC, Wii and DS versions
yahoocom1984 (on 11 March 2011)
This is undertracted, Black ops sold 13.7 million in US alone across all platforms
chris100185 (on 10 March 2011)
Black Ops>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>MW2. MW2 was a glitch filled, lag filled, hacker and cheater filled unbalanced PoS. NEver let IW make a CoD game again and hand the series off to Treyarch exclusively.
yahoocom1984 (on 01 March 2011)
what a beast
mangoman10 (on 27 February 2011)
hard to beat MW2
yesloow (on 09 February 2011)
Whoa, Japan barely has 50K sold
weezy (on 02 February 2011)
Oh, this game is off the hook
MiSan7573 (on 01 February 2011)
@dsage01 yeah the PS3 version did look like the better of the two.
SSurTails (on 30 January 2011)
MW2 >>>>>>>>>>>>>>> black ops. Can't beleive this much people are getting ripped of by activision for buying the same game over and over again. Sad.
mangoman10 (on 22 January 2011)
slowing too fast
dsage01 (on 20 January 2011)
this game sucks like shit omg this made my xbox get rrod i had to get on ps3!
Bagaren85 (on 16 January 2011)
Just insane sales.. I really liked Mw2.. Might give this a buy
NotStan (on 14 January 2011)
Jesus f'ing christ. Crossed the 10m mark in less than 10 weeks? Oh my god, unholy numbers x)
yahoocom1984 (on 13 January 2011)
Call of Duty the undisputed FPS king of all time
mangoman10 (on 13 January 2011)
Call of Duty the undisputed FPS king of HD Gen
thranx (on 09 January 2011)
Fun single player campaign even if the story is a little out there. I enjoy the MP but prefer reach or MoH to it. I mainly play the multiplayer because so many people I know in real life play it. If they didn't I would probably pass it over and only play the single player campaign.
toastboy44562 (on 06 January 2011)
yay 360 needs a 15 million seller. kinect will get their first i imagine though
yahoocom1984 (on 06 January 2011)
Call of duty Black ops will sell over 26 million copies across all platforms, mark my words
yahoocom1984 (on 06 January 2011)
insane sales
eliasg (on 06 January 2011)
an other one 10 million seller for XBOX 360. Congratulations!!!
postofficebuddy (on 01 January 2011)
15 million lifetime? I'd say it's a distinct possibility.
zgamer5 (on 01 January 2011)
gonna be 10 million by the end of this year. holy shit.
PullusPardus (on 25 December 2010)
While i don't mind this game, its the only thing that is "Featured" nowadays on youtube , and then there is the whining commentary, well it isn't better than the crap that is featured before, but it just shows that youtube is full of gamers :-D
toastboy44562 (on 24 December 2010)
amazing sales
--OkeyDokey-- (on 23 December 2010)
lol. This destroyed Reach. Was expecting a closer race.
hmduong (on 21 December 2010)
10M by end of the year?
Barozi (on 11 December 2010)
@Michael-5 - Totally not comparable. Opening and the weeks after launch are naturally higher. It's not the same boost.
yahoocom1984 (on 04 December 2010)
2 more weeks and it will reach 8 milion mark
Mr Puggsly (on 03 December 2010)
@ Chairman-Mao - Another PS3 fan happy that CoD is selling better than Halo. But he's running around defending GT5 for not surpassing GT4's opening week. :-(
Michael-5 (on 03 December 2010)
@ Barozi - Thats true, but Black Ops already outsold Halo: Reach despite both benefiting from the same holiday boost and Halo being released months ago.
Barozi (on 02 December 2010)
I think people are forgetting that COD gets the holiady boost much earlier than Halo Reach does., so sales are naturally higher for Black Ops..
Lazthelost (on 30 November 2010)
Lol Halo Reach sales > Everything else besides Call of Duty
Chairman-Mao (on 30 November 2010)
Lol Black Ops in 2 weeks > Reach in 10 weeks.
reviniente (on 28 November 2010)
It deserves whatever it sells. And it's selling like hell.
Senate34 (on 28 November 2010)
Deserve less
Vueguy (on 26 November 2010)
it already pass Hao Reach sales in just 2 weeks? wow. just like the PS3 version, its 4.7m in just 2 weeks and already pass Uncharted 2 sales as well, wow.
elvacano80 (on 26 November 2010)
ill be the first 1 laughling at him...yahoo ur sad
Calmador (on 26 November 2010)
Yahoo I dare you to make a thread about your thoughts on how COD supposably destroyed Halo.. please do it. You'll be laughed at for a week. Do it see how that goes.
Calmador (on 26 November 2010)
Yahoo... too bad your an idiot and THAT's the truth.
Barozi (on 26 November 2010)
in the end it will be a few millions above Halo, but it hardly "kills" it...
yahoocom1984 (on 25 November 2010)
Calmador, too bad that's the truth
yahoocom1984 (on 25 November 2010)
Second week sales also good above modern warfare 2 and Halo reach
Calmador (on 22 November 2010)
@yahoo... your an idiot.
monlosez (on 21 November 2010)
This game is laggy online.

Call of duty surely kills Halo

Mr Puggsly (on 19 November 2010)
Crazy opening. Well anyone who doubted this will be a 10 million seller is eating crow now.

Xbox live is the only way to go.
yahoocom1984 (on 02 November 2010)
Call of duty Black ops also can sell up to 20 million (PS3+XBOX360)
Deano (on 25 October 2010)
Can't wait for this!
