Will 'Call of Duty: Ghosts' Beat Out 'Grand Theft Auto 5'?

By Paul Tassi: "$800M in a day. I thought it was a typo when I first read that Grand Theft Auto 5 had sold that many copies in 24 hours. Call of Duty: Ghosts has a steep hill to climb if Activision wants to regain its collection of sales record crowns from Take Two and Rockstar, and now here on release day, the question is…can they do it?" (Call of Duty: Ghosts, Grand Theft Auto V, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

I don't thinks so, COD has a lot of competition, especially BF4

I highly doubt it too.. ..
Hopefully gta5 also made people realize that there is way better games out there than an annual release of a copy and paste first person shooter that looks and plays the same with very minor tweaks.

COD-Ghost has already done a billion dollars in sales - Activision just announced it on CNBC...

So it looks like the unstoppable freight train that is Call of Duty, is once again still unstoppable...

well not really, Activision only used favorable wording to confuse the message. They said "sold into retailers" AKA shipped units. Unlike GTA, where those numbers where for actual games sold to people.

They didnt even said they had surpassed GTA sales, which is something we know they would do if they had actually done that.

Still, in the long run I have no doubt it will surpass it since its on more consoles.

Even if they got the same amount of sales, it wouldn't work. GTA5 sold on 2 platforms while CoD is releasing on PS3, 360, WiiU, PC, PS4 and One.

That's 3 times the amount of platforms.

Although considering COD is selling on 6 systems compared to only 2 for GTA 5 it just might outsell in the long run.

Honestly, I hope it doesn't. Doesn't deserve it, not anymore.

GTA V has beat out all COD records and being only on 2 consoles. This COD is falling way short of BLOPS 2.

It has a good chance seeing how it's going to be on 6 different platforms and GTA5 is only on 2, but here's hoping that COD brofest is just about over, and the game drops back down to reality.

Nope. Looks to be selling worse than previous ones by quite a bit if we go by player count. I heard 360 didn't even break 500k players on day 1. PC didn't break 36k lol. I remember COD when 360 had like nearly 2m players on the first day. Those days are over it seems.

No...

Ha. No. Cod is so mediocre. If it beats GTA5 I weep for the gaming industry. If there was any justice Killzone would beat cod. I know that won't happen, but it should.

Dude unrelated to this topic. But if thats you in that pic, you kinda look like a rapist in that picture lol. No offence dude, just sayin you could use a better mugshot :P

I called GTA V taking the title from COD 8 months before V was released = ) you should have seen all the disagrees and pep talks I received. Was even called delusional lol
DrRobotnik  +   165d ago
...no.
mgszelda1  +   165d ago
Slowly but surely cod is waning at least in my circles. Battlefield 4 woot
Stoppokingme  +   165d ago
Short answer, no. Long answer, no.
LAWSON72  +   165d ago
Don't care if it does GTAV is a better game and when it comes to new multiplayer games IMO BF4 is amazing and Ghosts is just the same game since MW2 which I was not a huge fan of
