Blockbuster on Call of Duty Black Ops 2 sales: ‘We sold over 10,000 copies of the game in the first five minutes alone’

One of many 'ten thousands' to come.

Posted By | On 13th, Nov. 2012

Call of Duty Black Ops 2 has been a resounding success. Blockbuster, a UK retail outlet has sold over 10,000 copies in the first five minutes. That is more than 2000 copies a minute and and almost 35 copies a minute. I wonder how people from Blockbuster were actually distributing the game and collecting the cash. Quick pair of hands, I guess.

Blockbuster UK’s commercial director Gerry Butler was pretty pumped and happy (why won’t he be). “It was fantastic to see thousands of people turnout at over 450 Blockbuster stores last night and our staff really getting into the spirit of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2,” he said to MCV.

“We could not have served all our customers so quickly without the dedication of our staff so huge thanks for them for working so hard on the biggest night in gaming.”

“We sold over 10,000 copies of the game in the first five minutes alone and we anticipate that our stores will continue to serve hundreds of COD fans today as the rush continues to get the latest game in this record breaking franchise.”

Will Black Ops 2 break sales records of it’s predecessors? Well, if it sells 10,000 copies every five minutes everywhere, it sure has a good chance of doing so.

Call of Duty Black Ops 2 was released a few hours ago for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. Stay tuned for our full review of the game.
