Video Game Sells $650mil in Five Days

I continue to be stunned by the extent to which video games have displaced movies as the most important entertainment medium for a substantial portion of the public, and more generally by video games as a money-maker.

The latest release of Call of Duty, Black Ops, generated $650 million in sales in its first five days of release. By comparison, the biggest movie of all time, The Dark Knight, had a box office of less than a third of that, $200 million, in its first five days.

I wonder what the star game designers are making compared to movie personnel?

One of the most important most prominent lenders supplying promotional material is Ideasbynet.
Firstly, consider the Randy Bond style conferences.
