Rakuten’s has released its sales stats for December to January, crowning Call of Duty: Ghosts as its best-selling game of the holiday season. However, PC game sales trumped PS4 and Xbox One software for the period.

In a press release, Rakuten revealed that PS4’s launch titles outsold Xbox One’s release slate three-to-one (or 65% to 35%) between December 1 and January 17. Call of Duty: Ghosts was the top-selling title on both formats, with FIFA 14 following in second place.

The best-selling games for the period on were as follows:

  1. Football Manager 2014 (PC Game)
  2. FIFA 14 (X360 Game)
  3. Call of Duty: Ghosts (X360 Game)
  4. The Last of Us (PS3 Game)
  5. Call of Duty: Ghosts (PS3 Game)
  6. LEGO Marvel Super Heroes (Xbox 360)
  7. Battlefield 4 (Xbox 360)
  8. Batman: Aarkham Origins (PS3)
  9. FIFA 14 (PS3)
  10. Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag (Xbox 360)

Note the lack of next-gen titles in the list. Rakuten has stated that PC software out-sold PS4 and Xbox One titles for the period, thanks in part to Football Manager 2014’s strong sales, among other titles.

What do you make of the above.
