Cheats and Walkthroughs
There are currently over 2.8 million people playing Call of Duty: Black Ops multiplayer on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC at this very moment, just 16 hours since Treyarch's much anticipated title (legally) hit shelves. Tuesday is still a school day, correct?
More interestingly though is the fact that there are almost 1.5 million more 360 players online than PS3, and over 1.4 million more than PS3 and PC combined.
The official tally looks something like this: 2,156,469 on Xbox 360, 664,982 on PS3, and just 55,071 on PC. Consulting my hallway-length abacus, I see that that is a difference of 1,491,487 for 360 vs. PS3, 2,101,398 for 360 vs. PC, and 1,436,416 for 360 vs. PS3/PC.
I’m sure we’ll be hearing some kind of official statement from Activision later in the week regarding Black Ops’ launch day sales. Of course, those figures won’t include a breakdown of how many sold on each platform, but if I had to guess, I would say that the percentage difference in the number of online players between the two consoles is probably pretty close to the percentage of 360 copies sold versus PS3 copies (i.e. around 3x as many for 360 vs. PS3).
Just for fun, I popped in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare for 360, and there are currently 11,275 devoted players online. I’m going to jump on Modern Warfare 2 later tonight and compare those figures to Black Ops as well, so check back tomorrow for those figures.
In the meantime, would you mind letting us know on which platform your playing COD: Black Ops?
