A week after the 2012 Presidential Debate, U.S. citizens formed lines again in anticipation of the release of video game Call of Duty: Black Ops II. At midnight on Nov. 13, 2012, the video game was launched in 16,000 stores worldwide such as GameStop, Wal-Mart and Best Buy.
Within 24 hours of its release, the game earned more than $500 million making it the biggest entertainment launch of all time.
Call of Duty: Black Ops II is a first-person shooter game made for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Microsoft Windows. It is the ninth series in the Call of Duty video game franchise and the sequel to Call of Duty: Black Ops, released in 2010.
This game brings back online multi-player availability via Xbox Live.
Unlike its eight predecessors, Black Ops II is the first video game to feature future warfare technology projected from 2025.
As Finals Week quickly approaches, this game might be the prime example of why procrastination has a primitive spot in students' study habits.
