When North American Xbox One customers picked up their consoles last Friday, they had a host of games to choose from. Battlefield 4, Forza Motorsport 5, Ryse: Son of Rome and Zoo Tycoon all sat before them. The one they picked up most?
Call of Duty: Ghosts. Or, as I like to call it, Call of Doggy: Caspers. Why? Because.
Even further, Call of Duty: Ghosts is also the best selling game in North America for the PlayStation 4, nabbing that prize roughly two weeks ago. It’s sitting in the top spot at retailers like Best Buy, Walmart and Target.
The news comes from Activision by way of a press release. In the release, Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing, offered this about the game and its community:
“Around the globe, Call of Duty: Ghosts is leading the next generation. It’s the #1 selling title at key retailers and it’s also the most played game on Xbox One and PS4 globally…As we’ve said before, we’ve got the best community of fans in the world, and we’re thrilled they’re coming with us to the next generation.”
Did you pick up Call of Duty: Ghosts on a next-gen machine? We reviewed the title, and we were not impressed.
