Call of Duty: Black Ops managed to beat out movies and music releases like Avatar, Toy Story, Twilight, Inception, and many of the years most popular movies.  The ERA released the full list which you can find at MCV, but the numbers reflected for the top selling products showed a growth for the top sellers.

Black Ops bested Modern Warfare 2 in terms of initial sales of the game, and FIFA ’11 did better than it’s predecessor even in it’s long running franchise.
