HMV: Black Ops could be biggest game ever

UK entertainment retailer has predicted that Activision’s Call of Duty: Black Ops could become the biggest selling video game of all time after it hits global retail shelves on November 9th.

We’re seeing some exceptional interest for this title across its different formats,” HMV’s senior buyer James Brooks told Eurogamer.

Based on all this initial demand and the huge excitement that’s clearly being generated, I’d say this title has every chance of being the biggest game release ever, and it’s certainly shaping up to become the largest pre-order that we’ve seen in-store and online on”

HMV is one of only three retailers (the others being GAME and Gamestation) who will be stocking the impressive 129.99 Black Ops: Prestige Edition, which includes a remote control car.

Stock is nearly sold-through now and very little is left,” Brooks added of the SKU.

Last week US retailer GameStop said it has received a record number of pre-orders for Black Ops, bettering even the huge pre-sales enjoyed by Modern Warfare 2 last year.
