Call Of Duty: Ghosts – Fastest Selling Game Of All Time




/ 7 years ago

COD_GHOST

Over the past 24 hours Call of Duty: Ghosts has given a swift kick to Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto V, taking away the reigns of Fastest Selling Video Game of all time. Ghosts topped $1 Billion in sales, surpassing GTAV’s $800,000 in sales over release days 24 hour period. Personally I think that this fall back was because GTA V only released on Playstation and Xbox, while CoD: Ghosts was released on nearly every platform available.

  • PC
  • Xbox 360
  • Xbox One (Available November 19)
  • Playstation 3
  • Playstation4
  • Wii U

There were over 15,000 midnight launch parties world wide, allowing gamers to pick up the newest released Next Gen game. With the support of over 20 million fans, Ghosts was able to break 3 records in less than a 24 hour period of time. This game will likely break more records over time.

This year alone Call of Duty players have logged over four billion hours of gameplay. Call of Duty Black Ops II has generated more revenue than any other console game in a single year. It can be expected that Ghosts will surpass all other Call of Duty games, continuing to break records.
