Not only has Black Ops 4 proven to be a critical success with great reception from the community but it has also broken some records along the way.

Despite some being hesitant about the game’s lack of a single-player campaign, Black Ops 4 released on October 12 to acclaim from the community as players quickly began to discover all the game had to offer.

Given the newest sales reports released by SuperData Research, a record-breaking number of people picked up the game during the month of October.

In October alone, the Black Ops 4 sold a whopping 4.2 million units digitally, which is a new record for digital sales in a single month.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 sets a new high mark for console digital units. We estimate Black Ops 4 sold an estimated 4.2 million units in October on consoles, a new single month record for digital console sales.

SuperData also noted that the PC version of the game grew significantly compared to WWII’s release in 2017, but concluded that it was still a minority of the overall user base.

Black Ops 4’s main competition was Red Dead Redemption 2, which was released on October 26.

While it didn’t manage to break the monthly sales record given that it released near the end of the month, SuperData did confirm that it sold four million digital units in its first seven days of availability.

Nonetheless, SuperData reported that the video game industry had its best October ever, which is a good sign for video games in general.

Better than Karma & FormaL? Aydan reacts to Dr Disrespect praise | CharlieIntel Podcast #11

In Episode 11 of the CharlieIntel Podcast, battle royale superstar Aydan addresses the bold praise he recently received from Dr Disrespect, which caused quite the stir on social media.

Dr Disrespect recently raised a lot of eyebrows in the world of online gaming, particularly in the Call of Duty community, after he made bold comments claiming Aydan “could be the best controller gamer the world has ever seen.”

He called the former Fortnite pro “something else,” while insinuating that he was above and beyond the likes of Karma and FormaL, two CoD legends (and in the case of FormaL, also a Halo standout) who most consider to be the ‘GOATs’ (greatest of all time) in the console/controller scene.

When asked about it on the CharlieIntel Podcast, Aydan admitted to feeling very honored to be given such praise from the Two-Time and humbly named off some other controller players who he felt also deserved such recognition.

“It’s very honorable, of course, especially from Doc, how big he is,” he said on the CharlieIntel Podcast. “I think there are a lot of other talented controller players out there. For example Shotzzy, he won a Championship in Halo and CoD recently. FormaL also played Halo, so I definitely give them a lot of props.

“I’ve played Fortnite and Warzone and I’ve been doing well so I understand where he’s [Doc] coming from and on top of that, the world record game, which probably convinced him a little more. But I’ll take it, I’m happy with that.”
