PlayStation 4 Launch Sales Are In - Call of Duty: Ghosts Leads the Pack

"The PlayStation 4 launched on Friday in North America and set a record for the biggest opening for a console in history. The console sold 984,212 units in the US week one, according to VGChartz. The PlayStation 4 also sold 1.06 million units across North America. Week one sales is also for only two days, Friday and Saturday.

Software figures for the US first two days are also in. Call of Duty: Ghosts leads the pack with sales 703,638. That would add up to a 71 percent attach rate. Battlefield 4 sold 396,187 units. That would put the attach rate at 40 percent for the game.

Killzone: Shadow Fall was the top selling exclusive with 355,148 units sold. The attach for the game is at 36 percent in the first two days on sale. The other launch exclusive, Knack, ended up selling 102,749 units." (Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, Battlefield 4, Call of Duty: Ghosts, Killzone: Shadow Fall, Knack, Madden NFL 25, NBA 2K14, Need For Speed: Rivals, PS4)

Sony world domination is imminent.

"Live in Our World, Play in Yours"

I'm sorry but your comment is just completely off topic. This article is posting sales numbers of PS4 Launch Games from highest selling to lowest. Commenting "Sony world domination is imminent" really has nothing to add about your thoughts on the various game sales numbers.

TomShoe  +   816d ago

I guess no one got the joke. I figure it was a little too high-brow.

What I meant by "world domination" was that I was excited that Sony's launch was the current greatest in NA history. 1 million consoles in 24 hours is nothing to scoff at. Many consoles can't even make that much in whole months (looking at you, Wii U). I have the feeling that they'll control sales in NA, and the rest of the world is currently no contest. Besides the United Kingdom, Brazil(?) and the wild-card of China, the rest of the world is currently Playstation Nation.

The "Live in Our World" bit was a reference to one of Sony's earlier commercials in which they said "Live in YOUR world, play in OURS." I switched up the two worlds to say that Sony would be controlling the world, at least in terms of console gaming.

I wasn't as off-topic as you might think, but my crappy joke-telling probably ruined it :P

EDIT: It's not about the the PS4 games sales, it's about the CONSOLE SALES. They're they greatest of ALL TIME.

EA dice just killed their chances of ever reaching the sales level of COD due to their crappy, rushed,short, glitched infested battlefield 4 game.
They had a very good chance to shine on a next gen console from the get go and they F*#ked it up.

So how is Ghost doing online?
I've read BF4 had some problems but is Ghost playing smoothly on PS4 so far?

I'm not too into CoD but I like playing it for it's constantly packed community so it's fun and good to have compared to some games that might have a dead online community a couple months after launch.

For example I was considering getting injustice but looking at those ps4 sales numbers makes it seem like it'd be hard to find a match soon.
Ju  +   816d ago
Can't tell...but I have no problems what so ever getting into games - and this includes all games I tried: KZ, BF, Warframe, Blacklight, NFS. All work just fine. Why wouldn't CoD?
Ares84HU  +   815d ago
CoD runs smooth online though I must say that these sales numbers suprise me. At any given time on CoD online there are 20-30 thousand people on. On previous CoD games it was easily in 100-200thousand at any given time. If they sold close to a million shouldn't there be more people playing? Just find this strange. Anyways, no problem getting into games in CoD however I can only play Rush on BF4 because all the other modes just don't work for me. It keeps on giving me this time out error message and believe me, I tried a lot of times. Could be just me or a few more people, I don't know but it's really annoying. DICE promised a patch for next week, I hope that problem will be fixed by than.

Also had a lot of problems joining a game in Blacklight but when I did I was really dissapointed. It's a very bad game. Deleted it after 2 matches. CoD and BF does online shooting better there is no need for Blacklight. Maybe if they've done a story mode but it's only online. They just can't compete with BF and CoD. Don't waste your time on it.

So typical, so boring and COD isn't showing off anything regarding "next gen". Your better off playing it on the last gen systems.

BF (don't event get me started). Its a buggy, crashing mess for the PC. I'm sure it crashes all the time on the PS4 as well.

Killzone has been a blast though and it actually looks "next-gen" too!

Don't worry about it. People around here are a generally humorless lot. Now, if you had made some sort of scathing, negative remark about how much better that is than prospective X1 sales, you would have got all sorts of high 5s. Positivity is frowned upon in these parts!

Might get Kingdom Hearts 3. I've never played a kingdom hearts game, so I'm considering buying the 1.5 hd remix this black friday to see if I can get into it, if so I'll grab that 2.5 remix when it comes out.

I'm sort of apprehensive on it though, I'm not sure if I can get past the disney characters. Hercules, Mulan, Alladin, and a few others are alright, but Winnie the pooh and the little mermaid? Ugh.
colonel179  +   816d ago
Play it! Very enjoyable and challenging even in normal, and it also depends on the choices you make at the beginning of the game, so for example, if you want more challenge, you choose the sword, or if less, you choose the shield; and there is another choice about how you'll level up.

I think it's a great game with great story (although confusing). You'll enjoy it.

Well we will have KH3, FF15, FF14 ARR, Deep Down, DC Universe Online (already available), but hopefully we get some thing else soon, Sony seems to want to return to its former self and improve on that, RPGs were a large part of the PS2 and PS1, we know how successful they were and the PS4 already has done better then all other pervious launches. We won't get some JRPGs for a while unless they have some in development for the Japan launch and choose to release them outside afterwards.

Tru_Ray  +   815d ago
I picked up a copy as well. I took advantage of the buy 2 get one free sales offered by Amazon and Target. There are only so many games worth playing at launch so I figured that COD was worth a shot.

This is why the game sells so well. The COD brand is extremely strong. Is it the best shooter out there? Probably not... But I know what to expect from the franchise and I will continue to buy it like all of the other closet COD fans on this website.

Just blows my mind people keep buying it.

Ravenor  +   816d ago
Yep, some people are drawing some weird connections with this news.

The worst thing about CoD ghosts selling so well, isn't that it's CoD. It's that a lot of peoples first look at next gen hardware was an absolutely hideous upscaled PS3/360 game. The PS4/Xbox One version of Ghosts is disappointment in disk form.
Ju  +   816d ago
The only difference was, it sold the same amount on PS3 as it did on 360, but was outsold in the US due to the fact that shooters sell more there and the 360 has a clear install base advantage in the US. Simple math.

Did you ever consider that perhaps many of the former Xbox COD players have moved over to the PS4 since it has the superior version?

I wouldn't say with certainty that they are made up. It's just data extrapolation from a very small sample size that results in wildly innaccurate numbers. (And explains why their numbers are frequently wrong).

That means next gen is no different than the COD was the best selling on them too.Oh wait,it's VGchartz.
nevin1  +   816d ago
Interesting COD numbers, I would assume early adopters are core Sony fans and would of bought KZ:SF.
MASTER_RAIDEN  +   816d ago

I'll wait for the official digits by sony thanks.

Thought it was over 1million in 24hrs... Undertracked?
Rockefellow  +   816d ago
The first few sentences don't make any sense in the article excerpt above. It claims it sold less in one week than it did in two days, even though the damned thing hasn't been out a week yet. It's just poor editing/proof-reading on the author's part.
DanielGearSolid  +   816d ago

I read it back like 8 Times. Thought I was stupid or something

"The console sold 984,212 units in the US week one, according to VGChartz. The PlayStation 4 also sold 1.06 million units across North America. Week one sales is also for only two days, Friday and Saturday."

Is it just me, or does this make absolutely no sense whatsoever? It sold 984,212 in week one... and then it sold 1.06 million in two days. Someone needs to get a calculator, or proof-read before they post.

Either way, excellent sales, as we all know. I'm glad I was one of those who picked up Killzone Shadow Fall, and for shame to those who purchased CoD. It'll be interesting to see how the competition stacks up later this week.

NA =/= USA.

Not that the numbers are correct.

one thing is for sure resolution gate swayed the cod sales numbers big time in the PS4's favor. Before res gate the X1 cod preorder sales had a nice lead over ps4's cod. That's what actually shows you that allot more xbox players crossed over.

Almost 1 million for ghosts? That's crazy!
ELpork  +   816d ago
Heard my old store had 2 traded in so far, as well as one defective.
HK6  +   816d ago
2.46 games? So pretty much everybody picked up two full games and then CoD: Ghosts?

Interesting. So the masses spoke, and the early PS4 buyers flocked to a game that doesn't make a good case at all on why it should be considered next Gen in any way. Not Killzone, not Knack, not even a better shooter in BF4. Interesting. It uses no special PS4 features, it doesn't showcase the power of the console and has known framerate issues...yet its the top selling. Why do you think that is?
Shuyin  +   815d ago
Because people are fools. I didn't buy Ghost as I burnt myself yet again with Black Ops 2. I just wish CoD would be all about skill and good map design and not about killstreaks. CoD4 was the perfect shooter. It was my 1st game of this generation and what really got me into PS3 gaming. It was so fun...
Even MW2 was great, despite its flaws.
..and here I am praising the old times..haha..aww man.

Anyway, I can't wait to play Shadow Fall and BF4 on my PS4!
Ashby_JC  +   815d ago
And this will just keep more coming. I don't mind long as they realize that there are cod only players..then there are gamers who buy quite a few games year to year.

I think we are going to get some unique games (I hope lol)

...But like movies. They usually will make games that they KNOW will sell. That's why we get so many sequels.
jessupj  +   815d ago
I find it puzzling as well.

You'd think the type of person that buys a console at launch is an avid gamer that does his'her research and know's what a good game is.
N2NOther  +   813d ago
The funny thing about the word "better" when it comes to entertainment. It means nothing but your own opinion. Especially when you are comparing two vastly different games that focus on entirely different types of gameplay and still. Just because you point and shoot doesn't make it the same.
dillhole  +   816d ago
So the top selling launch title for a powerful next gen console is one that not only looks bad for a last gen title but actually looks even worse on next gen hardware?

Not very surprising to see CoD being number 1, but I'm a bit surprised by BF4, as I was expecting it to come much closer to matching Call of Duty's sales.

Call of Duty Ghosts might not be the prettiest game out there, nor the one to take full advantage of the PS4, but, in my opinion, it's the best overall game on the system so far (only played KZ:SF, CoD:Ghosts, Flower and Resogun on PS4, although I have played BF4 and AC4 on PC).
cyclindk  +   816d ago
As much as I despise what CoD has become... I have to agree.

It offers the most all around for "a game." But aim assist ridiculousness ruined it for me long ago.

KZ singleplayer I was disappointed with, multiplayer is okay so far (they backtracked in some places unfortunately) they really need to introduce some vehicular and aerial combat modes seriously.

BF4: single player is also lack luster, so if it depends solely on multiplayer (which is THE best) then it falls behind too.

So CoD wins just because it does what it does well and does a few things marginally better than KZSH and BF4 on single player modes, which, despite what people care about, are still part of the whole package.

I expect my opinion of their successors to be quite different though, i.e. the next KZ and BF compared with the next Call of Duty.

For me, KZ visuals are untouchable, and BF4 multiplayer is untouchable. CoD wins because the other two just focused on other aspects, there is some degree of safety in not changing your formula I suppose.

Cod fans for the most part I can't see ever dumping it and jumping to bf. It's two totally different games.

Battlefield will gain sales as more people play it. But I dint see it ever taking the fps crown.

Honestly....I don't want it to get the crown. Something about being top dog...The game will start to get bashed...just like cod, halo etc.
