‘Black Ops II’ Makes Half A Billion In First 24 Hours, Quickly Dethroning Halo 4 As The Biggest Entertainment Launch Of The Year

BlackOps2

Well that was quick (and unsurprising). Just a week after Halo broke records and Call of Duty: Black Ops II has already gone and curb-stomped Halo 4’s impressive $220 million day one haul right in the face. In its first 24 hours, Black Ops II took all the monies, raking in half a billion in sales. It’s a multi-platform game, whereas Halo 4 is an Xbox exclusive, so really, both games have proven insanely successful. “With first day sales of over half a billion dollars worldwide, we believe Call of Duty is the biggest entertainment launch of the year for the fourth year in a row,” said Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick. Which of these games, if either, are you more interested in? Let us know which side you’re on after the break.


Which side are you on?

      Did an Xbox touch you inappropriately when you were a child? I want to get to the source of your anger toward the Xbox. It’s okay, this is a safe place, now show me on the doll where the Xbox touched you.

        Adam’s right. We have no judgment here. Help us help you.
