The battle for bragging rights at video games’ top table continues, with the announcement by Activision Blizzard (NASDAQ:ATVI) that sales of Activision’s latest first-person shooter, Call of Duty: Ghosts, exceeded $1 billion on its first day.
1 billion sold to RETAILERS.. not the SALES -_-''
That's true but GTA V was the same story the 800$ million it made on day one was to retailers.. and Ghosts beat it.. I just really hope activison doesn't get too comfortable. I am a huge fan of COD and it does improve most of the time, this time there was huge improvements but for me it's time for a new engine, if treyarch don't use one then I won't be getting the next cod!
No GTA made 800 million from sales to customers not retailers,as for Activision getting to comfortable come on man they have been putting out the same mediocre game now for years.
you should read the article, it clearly stated that you are wrong.
No, GTA 5 was actual sales figures. Ghosts didn't beat it at all, especially in terms of reviews, which have generally been mediocre for Ghosts. Lots of 7's, which from some sites, might as well be 5's.
Please stop talking..
Actually it was sold to customers
EVERY company shows their sales numbers to RETAILERS.
Shipped to retailers does not equal "sold". Not final sale at least.
when do we find out the actual sales???
Haha I get the impression they're really butthurt over the GTAV sales.
Dear lord nobody will ever learn activision are the only company that can release trash and get that sort of money.
the article calmly calls Activision out on their claim by showing the distinction between the GTAV and CoD numbers. its likely that Activision pushed this information to satisfy stockholders and to maintain stock values.
not to consumers.. this 1 bill could rot at retaielres and not many will buy it.. shops are gona lose money
Definitely wouldn't boast considering this is the first time I actually think the singleplayer is infinitely better than the multiplayer. Somebody dropped the ball big time on this game in my opinion.
I don't understand what fools pay $65 for the same game every year. My brother is one of those people. Makes me want to get divorced move back in with him and my family just so I can smack him.
Er Meh Gurd , Anofer Car of Doody , Argggagag!!! I can't believe people still buy and get excited for this every year for the past 7 years . It still boggles my mind . What happened to good old fps like Unreal, quake and timesplitters
They all went that way of halo 4 and MoH I’m afraid.
Halo is the only shooter arena that's still standing,
You guys who bought COD Ghost should have rented it,all my friends who has it are dissapointed,they said it's same as MW3 but lamer,so they stop playing Ghost and went back on MW3,let me know if you Ghost owners feel the same...
They'll say anything to try and claim they beat GTA5. Nice try Activision, go be butthurt some where else!
