Black Ops 2 Crushes Amazon Pre-Order Sales

    May 8, 2012

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 has broken the Amazon single day pre-order sales record, The Inquirer says. In fact, they demolished it, tripling sales of the previous record holder.

Activision revealed the game last Tuesday with a trailer aired during the NBA playoffs. In the first 24 hours, pre orders on Amazon smashed that of Call of Duty: Black Ops, the previous record holder

And Amazon didn’t even have the best Pre-Order bonuses, even though they are well-known for having the goods in this regard. It will be interesting to see the pre-order sales figures from some of the other retailers. Best Buy is offering free dogtags, and Gamespot actually has four tiers of prizes, encouraging gamers to buy early.

“Set to be one of the biggest games of the year, it’s great to see so much enthusiasm and anticipation for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2,” said Amazon UK video games manager Graham Chambers in The Inquirer: “Bolder and better than before and with everything from a futuristic storyline through to single player mode, Zombies and multiplayer”.
