Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Breaks Digital Day One Launch Sales

Treyarch are working on a fix for Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4's emote peeking

It's not much, but for a guy with a lousy kill/death ratio, it's the best match so far in a few days of playing Black Ops 4, which is having a stellar launch (see Dean's latest stories about this on VentureBeat/GamesBeat).

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 has set two new records for day one digital sales. Perhaps more impressively it also set a new PlayStation record for day one digital full game sales on PlayStation Store, globally. Furthermore, Activision didn't share any unit sales numbers, physical or digital, for Black Ops 4 - but that is in keeping with modern games industry practices. Digital games sales reduce costs of manufacturing of disks, cases, and other materials, but also push gamers towards the company's engagement-driven revenue streams that include microtransactions, season passes, and other additive content. According to GI.Biz, UK launch day sales of the physical, boxed game are down 50% from the last game - which is the lowest physical sales tally in 11 years. Probably not, but it manages to integrate Battle Royale gameplay into the core Call of Duty experience with impressive seamlessness, while serving up reliable multiplayer and Zombies thrills as you'd reasonably expect.

A third-person view in a battle royale does allow players to see a lot more, potentially spotting opponents who should be behind cover, or conversely letting them be more confident that the way forward is clear.

We're aware that players have been able to use Gestures (often referred to by the community as "Emotes") to peek around corners in modes where that can create an unfair advantage. "This is just the beginning, it's going to be an incredible journey with Black Ops IIII".

At the moment, all we know for sure is that Black Ops 4 is the second best-selling physical game of the year, behind Federation Internationale de Football Association 19, with 58% of sales on PlayStation 4, 41% on Xbox One, and 1% on PC.
