A British computer games fan has become the first in the world to start queuing for the new ''Call of Duty'' - days before it comes out.

Taylor Pelling, 19, is already queueing for ''Call of Duty: Black Ops II'' ahead of its global release on Monday.

Black Ops 2 is expected to be one of the biggest entertainment releases of all time.

It is the sequel to a game which earned a billion dollars in 16 days.

James Cameron’s Avatar, Hollywood’s biggest-ever hit, took 17 days to hit the same figure.

Taylor is waiting outside HMV Oxford Street in London - where he is sleeping in a tent.

Student Taylor, of Twickenham, is thought to be the first person in the world to start queuing for the game.

He says staff at the shop are looking after him - giving him food, hot drinks and letting him use the toilet.

Taylor said: "I've attended a few midnight launches, but I have never been first in line. This time I was determined.

"I love Call of Duty and I know the launch is going to be pretty spectacular, so being at the front of the queue to buy it will make it an even more memorable experience.''
