Activision announced today that Call of Duty: Ghosts generated $1 billion in worldwide revenue on launch day.

Activision specifically noted in its announcement that it "sold more than $1 billion of Call of Duty: Ghosts into retail stores worldwide as of day one," meaning the figure is made up of units sold to retailers and not necessarily sales to consumers.

By comparison, Call of Duty: Black Ops II needed 15 days to reach $1 billion in sales, though that figure included units sold to consumers and not only to retailers.

Citing data from Microsoft, Activision also announced that Call of Duty: Ghosts has moved to the top spot on Xbox Live as the most-played game this week.

On the Xbox 360, average play sessions for Call of Duty: Ghosts have been longer than Black Ops II or Modern Warfare 3 over the same period, Activision said.

The only good COD games are COD2 and COD:MW. The rest is just the same old trash.

Personally i think Bieber is the lesser of two evils.

 

I've actually never heard anyone say Bieber is a great singer. I know some people think it but i've never encountered one. I've heard many many casual console gamers say CoD is teh b3st thing ev4r it's aw3some bla bla bla.

 

I'm positive Bieber fans will someday realise he was not great and will put him in the "guilty pleasure" drawer of their life experiences. I'm not so sure about CoD fanboys. I think there's no hope for them. They really think CoD past the first one are great games and i think they are beyond redemption.

Bieber is a great singer, no joke.

 

Regarding this, it just makes me sad to see the game industry becoming monopolised in this way. If there's the market for it like this, they're going to keep working on them. I remember being excited to play and download the CoD 4 beta.

CoD 4 was Modern Warfare right ? It was a good game actually.

 

Honestly on a more serious tone CoD games are great games. I loved the first CoD and played it a lot. I liked Modern Warfare too. My problem with the serie is they release a new game every year with the same gfx, same engine and mostly same gameplay with an occasional new twist.

 

I mean people keep saying Nintendo rehash bla bla bla etc. Yet there have been more CoD games in the last 10 years than real Mario games ever (not considering the many spin-off and xpac). There have been in the last 10 years a great total of 10 CoD games. One every damn year.

 

All of those games are good to great games when you ignore the other ones in the serie. But i think it's dumb for people to spend 60$ a year on what is basically the same game with the same gfx. And it think reviewers are stupid to give the same game 8/10 every year too. The reviews of this new CoD are so dumb. Reviewers basically say it's the same old thing with out of date gfx yet they give the game 8+. Only Giant Bomb had to guts the give it the score it deserves which is a 3 stars out of 5 for being the same old thing over and over again.

THAT ARTICLE IS NOT TRUE!  They've sold $1bn to retaillers so they can sell the game, that's not sales.

Yeah it was. Was the last CoD to have the numbering on the case. Now the number is probably in double figures. I loved CoD 4 to death and remember moving over from Halo 3 weeks after it came out just to play the beta, thought it was revolutionary. Now look at it.

Yeah CoD4 was pretty good, after that it just became so derivative that the series devolved into shlock.

This is a misinterpretation of the article.

 

They've sold $1billion worth of stock to retailers, not to customers.  This is not sales, this is shipping.  there aren't yet any actual sales figures.

I like the CoD single player missions i think there fun even though its is the same old story redone most of the time but i think the multiplayer sucks on it, i really dont like it i find it really boring and static. not sure whether to get ghosts or not mainly cus i find BF4 awesome even with its server issues at the moe so not much other time:d

1 Billion to retail != 1 Billion in sales. GTA V record hasn't been broken.

That Gamespot didn't see any particular framerate problems (If I'm not mistaken) while the rest of the internets did, coupled with this twaddle, may very well speak they must be enjoying Activision's early Xmas presents.
