Call of Duty: Black Ops sets record with $360M in day-one sales

Call of Duty: Black Ops racked up $360 million in sales in the first 24 hours that it was on sale in North America and the UK. What are your first impressions of the game?

Call of Duty: Black Ops may not be on many gamers' holiday wish lists this year. It's not because the first-person shooter isn't getting good reviews, but rather because many fans of the series have already purchased the game.

In the first 24 hours that Call of Duty: Black Ops was on sale in North America and the UK, 5.6 million units were sold, and the game pulled in $360 million; this is now the day-one sales record for games (the record was held by Modern Warfare 2).
