Call of Duty Black Ops set a five-day record for getting people to part with their money, according to its creators today. $650 million in copies sold around the world in the span of a work week.
Black Ops publisher Activision, you know, the one a lot of gamers love to hate because of their Death Star reputation, said today in a press release that the company topped the five-day mark of last year's Modern Warfare 2, which hit $550 million in its first five days. Both achievements have been records for any form of entertainment, according to the publisher. Just last week, Activision boasted of Black Ops selling 5.6 million copies in its first day of release in North America and the U.K.
