Call of Duty: Black Ops Multiplayer Reveal Hands-On

Activision has announced that Call of Duty: Black Ops sold over 23 million units and over 18 million map packs in first nine months of sales. Holy crap. I'm still new to Game Dev Story but I'm pretty sure that's an incredible number. CEO of Activision Eric Hirshberg said that the average Black Ops player really spent $76 on the game by the time they finished purchasing their DLC. At $15 for each map pack, Activision made around 270 million bucks in gross earnings from DLC alone.

"There are over 30 million unique players of Black Ops who collectively have amassed, incredibly, more than 2.3 billion hours of play," said Hirshberg. "To put that number in perspective, that's more than a quarter of a million years of play and that means our millions of fans spend more time per day on Black Ops multiplayer than they do on Facebook."

And Activision is looking to hit big again with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 which releases on November 8 for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC, and Wii. Are you one of the 30 million people still playing Black Ops on a daily basis? What has kept your interest in the game for this long?
