Call of Duty: Ghosts is already emerging as “the leading next generation title at retail,” according to Activision. Citing pre-order figures and sales at North American retailers, the game is the number one selling title in retail sales on PS4 and is the number one pre-ordered Xbox One title at Best Buy, GameStop, Target and Walmart.
“Call of Duty: Ghosts is the No. 1 best-selling game on PS4 in North America at Best Buy, GameStop, Target and Walmart, and also the No. 1 pre-ordered Xbox One title in North America at those retailers for launch,” said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing, Inc. “We couldn’t be more excited about the consumer response as we look forward to this Friday’s release of Xbox One. As we’ve said before, it’s a great time to be a gamer, and a great time for Call of Duty fans.”
“Call of Duty: Ghosts is currently the No. 1 best-selling game on PS4,” said Chris Nagelson, vice president of entertainment for Walmart U.S. “The momentum for this title on next gen is incredible. We know fans across the country will be heading to Walmart this weekend to pick up their Xbox One edition, and on Black Friday to bring home Call of Duty: Ghosts. We expect Ghosts to be one of the most in-demand Christmas gifts of this year.”
Ghosts launched for both current gen systems and PS4 on November 5, and will be available day one for Xbox One November 22.
