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?"

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.
