Call of Duty: Ghosts takes over UK sales chart
Call of Duty: Ghosts has officially taken over the UK sales chart to become the number 1 selling game across United Kingdom. The #1 was the Xbox 360 version, #2 was the PS3 version, and surprisingly, the PS4 version came in as #3. That’s pretty impressive because the PS4 doesn’t launch for three more weeks in the UK. The PS4 version even sold more than Wii-U.
Even more, the PS4 version beat the PS3 version’s of BF4 and Assassin’s Creed IV.
Released on Tuesday, sales were split 62% on XB360, 34% PS3, 3% PS4 and the rest on PC and Wii U. Despite Sony’s new console not due in stores until November 29th, Activision Blizzard released the PS4 version alongside the current formats. The PS4 version performs spectacularly well for a game that consumers will not be able to actually play for another 3 weeks, managing to outsell the PS3 versions of ‘Assassin’s Creed IV’ and ‘Battlefield 4’. Beaten to No1 by ‘Assassin’s Creed IV’ (-63%) last week, ‘Battlefield 4’ ( -54%) holds on to No2, outselling the popular Ubisoft title by 6,000 units across their first two weeks of launch.
Call of Duty: Ghosts for Xbox One is launching on Nov. 15th in Europe, so there’s no sales numbers for that yet.
