According to one daily newspaper in the UK, they have today revealed that Black Ops II has shifted 8 million units globally on PS3 and Xbox 360 in just 24 hours of going on sale, putting any rivals to shame. Black Ops managed to squeeze around 5.6 million units for the same period and the recent Halo 4 sold an impressive 3 million in its opening day – but this is an Xbox exclusive. Assassin’s Creed 3 also sold well with numbers in its opening week around 3 million on consoles. Last year’s Modern Warfare 3 garnered a staggering 6.5 million day one sales. Still, when Activision reveal the full numbers, which undoubtedly they will do with much gusto, it will be interesting to see how the momentum has carried through the week.
