Black Ops 3 Dominated Black Friday According to Market Study

According to a recent market study by stat-building firm Infoscout, Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 was the best-selling game on the bargain hunting weekend.

Black Ops 2 hit the market early in November and managed to rake in over $550 million in the first three days of launch, becoming the biggest entertainment launch this year. As the infographic shows below the Treyarch developed game took the top spot by some margin, beating off competition from EA’s Madden NFL 16.

The increase in sales is down to many retailers selling the game in flash sales and the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of the shooter seeing a substantial decrease in price.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is available now for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC.
