Nov. 9, 2010— -- One of the most highly anticipated video games of the year hits stores today. Call of Duty: Black Ops is the latest in the franchise of first- person combat games. The last one set a single-day sales record of more than $400 million. USA Today's Mike Snider says this game is as much of a thrill ride as that one.
"Players are going to get to go all over the world, battling in Cold War scenarios -- in Russia, Cuba and the Vietnam War," Snider said. "Now this game looks spectacular. It's the best work by Treyarch, which is the other developer that does Call of Duty Games. And I think people are going to really enjoy this game, feels like you're playing in an action movie."
Call of Duty: Black Ops is available for all the major gaming consoles and PCs.
The iPhone is going 3-D. Hasbro is unveiling a device today called My3D that attaches to the iPhone and iPod Touch. It will work with 3-D movies, TV shows and apps. It goes on sale next spring for $30.
