Relying on data from the NPD Group, Chart-Track, and GfK, Activision announced today that Call of Duty: Black Ops is the highest selling game on Sony’s PlayStation 3 since the console launched in 2006. The PS3 is in its fifth year on the market, and CoDBlOps managed to accomplish this feat in less than four months. The announcement came with the arrival of the First Strike DLC map pack on the PlayStation Store this week.
We recently compared the game with its immediate predecessor, Modern Warfare 2, and came out with Black Ops as the superior game. While Call of Duty isn’t necessarily the greatest series in the world, it’s nice to see Black Ops surpass the records of the last one.
