Video Game Makes $360 Million In One Day

How bad is the economy when a video game can generate $360 million in sales in just one day? That may sound far-fetched, but it literally just happened when Activision released their highly anticipated "Call of Duty: Black Ops" game for the Xbox, Wii, Playstation, and PC.

According to the company, they sold 5.6 million copies of the game in just one day. By doing this, they broke last year's record of selling 4.7 million copies of "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2" in one day - which generated $310 million in sales. They easily hold the title of having the two "biggest entertainment launches in history".

McDonald's Fast Food Weddings - Will It Work?

In Hong Kong, McDonald's is offering local customers an opportunity to get married inside the fast food restaurant. Apparently, people there love McDonald's that much!

While many people in America think the concept is cheesy, many in China are loving the idea - especially since it only costs about $400 US dollars to host a wedding ceremony and a reception for up to 100 guests. Local couples are saying that they met each other at McDonald's, went there for dates, and so why not get married there?
