PC gamers used to get the absolute best games back in the day. I’m talking about pre-PS2 days here. The days when, if you wanted the best version of a multiplatform game, it was the PC that reviewers pointed to. This has, in most cases, completely reversed now. Publishers and developers prefer gaming consoles instead of PC because of the relatively less piracy and the greater demand. This issue can be seen in all its glory in the recently released Call of Duty: Black Ops.
If you thought $200,000 earnings on first day were big, get this: Call of Duty Black Ops has made a mind-blowing $360 million in retail sales in its first 24 hours in US and UK alone.
