Call of Duty: Black Ops

After the announcement of Call of Duty: Black Ops on the Xbox 360 becoming backwards compatible on the Xbox One, sales of the game rose astronomically. On Amazon, sales rose by 13,400 percent while the Classics version sales increased by 5,971% percent.

The game is currently second on the retailer’s PC & Video Games sales chart (which changes by the hour), putting it ahead of DOOM and just under Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. That’s a pretty strong jump especially since it was previously ranked in the 100s with regards to sales.

Despite the popularity of Black Ops 3, many fans have fond memories of the multiplayer in Call of Duty: Black Ops. Of course, it was also the first title in the series to introduce Zombies as a separate mode and helped cement it as a major staple in the franchise moving forward.

What are your thoughts on the Xbox 360 version enjoying such brisk sales? Let us know in the comments below.

    It’s a nice change of pace. .no boosting around the maps, no sci-fi gadgets or specialists, just run and gun (or camp…lol)

    Black ops wasn’t the first CoD game to include zombies. That was World at War, two years before Black Ops.

    Activision has been sent a clear message people want these type of COD games back traditional boots on the ground gameplay none of these sci fi crap where they are trying to rip off Halo and Titanfall. The reason why Infinite warfare we met with such negative feedback is because people are tired of the sci fi shooters. Halo, Star Wars Battlefront, Destiny, Titanfall, The last 2 CODs which were mostly sci fi enough already. You look at the trailer for Infinite Warfere and it doesn’t even look like COD anymore. Also Activision must be seeing those dollar signs… After seeing how sales for Black Ops went up 13000% I wouldn’t be surprised if they allow MS to put more COD games from last gen on the backwards compatibility catalog…
