Call of Duty: Black Ops the best selling PS3 game ever

Despite gaining notoriety for its “inferiority”, the PlayStation 3 version of Call of Duty: Black Ops has been today heralded as the best selling PS3 title of all time. And that, folks, is why Activision doesn’t have to bother shipping finished products!

The evil publisher did not release any definitive sales figures, but said it drew the conclusion from NPD, Chart-Track and GfK. To accomplish this feat when the game only released in November 2010 is pretty astounding, whether you like the game or not. 

As much as I criticize Activision, I have to stand in awe — it must be pretty swell to be able to do whatever you want and still make more money in a week than most of us could hope to save in our working life.
