Call of Duty: Black Ops scores some big online play figures on launch day

One million play Black Ops on Xbox Live in the first day

It seems that, despite fears that Black Ops would not match Modern Warfare 2 it has still managed to clock up some impressive multiplayer numbers on launch day.

Treyarch's Josh Olin remarked on his Twitter account that there were almost one million player logged on and playing Black Ops at one point during the first day of sale.

Olin said: "Am I getting solid intel? Is there really almost 1,000,000 players on Xbox LIVE right now?"

On the PC alone Steam figures showed that the multiplayer mode of Black Ops peaked at 77,609 players at one point eclipsing PC stalwart titles like CounterStrike.
