GameStop and Activision have just announced this morning that Call of Duty: Ghosts is on track to be the most preordered game of 2013.

GameStop’s senior VP of merchandising Bob Puzon said, “Call of Duty is an entertainment juggernaut and cultural phenomenon. We are excited for the upcoming release of the new instalment of this blockbuster franchise. We look forward to celebrating the worldwide November launch of this great game that is on track to be the most pre-ordered title of the year.”

Pretty impressive when you consider what it’s going up against. GTAV, Battlefield 4, Assassins Creed 4, Watchdogs, and more are coming out this holiday which should be one of the most expensive holidays ever for gamers.

Other than Ghosts, what other games do you have preordered?

    No videogame can compare with CoD in terms of sale.. Not a big surprise 😀

    • >_> GTAV broke a record

      • asdf

        GTA community basically embraces all gamers…….COD community is just cod fans…….I mean come on GTA is huge and there’s more people buying COD, that’s a hell of an accomplishment

        • But almost the half of the cod community are under 12 ..

          • StraightEdgeAtheist

            Do you have facts to back up your statistics or are you just going by personal experience and trying to make that out to be fact?

          • Sounds to me like RileyWoof is a Liberal. Lol JK.

          • Wuff how did you find out! 😀 hehe jk
            EDIT:*cleares throat* Woof

          • I’m surprised you haven’t put the COD Ghosts dog as your profile pic.

          • Woof what did you say

          • Yea……youtube

          • StraightEdgeAtheist

            So in other words, you have no reliable facts to back up your statement?

          • asdf

            He does……..he has qualitative data (he doesn’t if he has qualitative data…..so no)

          • StraightEdgeAtheist

            Riiiiight.

          • asdf

            That’s the support!

          • StraightEdgeAtheist

            uh huh.

          • Rai

            Not a good example. Youtube is full of assholes…..hmm, including myself then I guess >_>
            If you look at the actual forums for call of duty though….I mean, peeps seem like nice (of course some aren’t) and intelligent people.

            A while back when dedicated servers were announced, they were on there talking about cloud computing and architectural functions and geological locatioonays dealing with peoples ping and what-not. I was all confused lol.

          • asdf

            I think he’s just taking qualitative data………….but in reality if we actually run a test for quantitative data we’d get 70-80 yearolds being the mode.

          • StraightEdgeAtheist

            Uh huh.

          • asdf

            I don’t get it.

          • StraightEdgeAtheist

            You don’t have to.

          • asdf

            I bet you’re 13 and just typed 12 to not look bad……..nice

          • im 16 sir

          • Its sad, I wish there was someway… To make it illegal for parents to buy it for their kids, or let their kids have mics. (Coming from a College student that want to strangle sqeakers)

          • velocity360

            you mean almost 20%

      • wlight

        Did you not read the article or what??

    • DanDustEmOff

      World of Warcraft

      • asdf

        Not ALL fat people count as gamers…….(I’m deeply sorry if bradyInsulin runs in your family. If it’s just ignore this.)

  • Bigi345

    GTA V defeated was pretty expected it was only for 2 platforms

    • asdf

      Yeah……….but GTA is much greater there should have been a close tie

      • I feel like the best games of this year are going to be GTA V and Ghosts, not battlefield because it looks like a reskined bf3 :

        • asdf

          OH NO! They know the secret! Hurry make take out the dogs feature we have been working on for the last week to see if COD gets some competition from us!
          -DICE

  • Bowinkle82

    ive only pre-ordered GTA V !

    • Bigi345

      Well, Good for you!

    • Bryan Salas

      Get that blimp! lol

  • David Sync

    “Other than ghost,what game have you preorder” I haven’t preordered ghost …. What are u trying to say CI XD

    • Oh don’t worry, you’ll pre-order it.

      • Haha that made me laugh hard

        • asdf

          No one cares…..therefor…..*dislike* because we’re in not be nice week

          • Celestia Ununpentium Ludenberg

            >because we’re in not be nice week

      • David Sync

        I suddenly have this strange feel that I need to spend my money on Ghost o.o

  • Birchy

    Activision are very clever. The whole…… PS3, PS4, PC, WiiU, xbox and 360… So many platforms to choose from, they’ve got Call of Duty accessible to absolutely everyone. I think if GTAV was more widely available that could top the Ghosts sales, but Activision have done well here. They’re very clever people.

    • asdf

      Even fraeking mobile versions of the game.

  • Atheistmason2

    Haha and all the bf fanboys are like bf4 is outselling cod in preorders stfu

    • MeisseN

      Haha, dat ID. Reminds me of the old days over @ MP1st when haters picked hateful nicknames to bash my ass lol

      • I once saw one on another site that said “Im Diabetus sucks dick”… good times

        • asdf

          I’ve had a hell lot (in trolling PS4 news at Nextvg.com) like: asdf is a dumbass or asdf shutthefukup

          • Guest

            Yeah – good times good time 😉 Remember that article on PS4 indies where it was like 30 vs you 😀

          • asdf

            I made 10 people get new accounts in Discuss to just try to refute me LOL

        • Alex hill (I have diabetes)

          Like mine ? Lol

        • asdfisatroll

          What is Diabetus?

          • Type in wilford brimely on YouTube…

          • Guest

            Lol – I just watched the video – it’s funny! You should call yourself Wilford Brimely, but then again your real name is probably Alex Hill.

          • Hopefully my name is Alex Hill. Questioning who my real parents are now. Hmmmm….

    • Yea but bf3 is better than cod mw3 and bo2 😀 (No im not a bf fan’boy’ i play cod for ages)

  • James K

    A few more announcements and they will get their record again

  • 9410besi

    I think GTA V will be a great contender for CoD 🙂 I have alreday pre-ordered GTA V going to preorder Ghosts as well 🙂 Hopefully it’ll be that breeze of fresh air that the CoD series need 😀

    • They are 2 different types of games…not comparable.

      • 9410besi

        They are both going to be the best games this year. That’s why I’m mentioning both

  • lMattW

    Combining current and next-gen platforms it’s pretty close to the levels of BO2 last year which I didn’t expect, and I’m sure there’s a sizable contingent who won’t pre-order because they’re not sure which console they’ll get, and another large group who will buy it on both current and next-gen. I think there’s a real possibility Ghosts will sell better than BO2, which is quite surprising to me.

  • COD killing it in preorder sales…I hope no one is surprised by this

    • Sentrymann

      There will always be people who pretend to be XD

      • asdf

        Yeah like those people that pretend Killzone is as good because they have the shame to own a PS4 and not get COD stuff. (At least they will hopefully get exclusive capes for Destiny LOL)

        • Dude, Killzone ShadowFall looks amazing.

          • asdf

            Sorry have you missed the whole other pile of next gen games……they all look the same e.g. Quantum Brake has the same graphics as Killzone has and Killzone has neons which makes it look cooler I agree, Ryse is made in Cryengine 3 that implies a lot etc.
            *I’m not saying it’s bad, I’m just saying that every next gen game (Except Wolfestain) looks amazing*

          • I’m not just talking about graphics. Which by the way are absolutely stunning and I don’t know what you’re smoking. The campaign looks great and the MP has always been pretty good so I believe this game will be at least an 8.5/10

          • BarneyTeleTubbiesLover

            Dude, true gamers doesn’t judge games based on their graphics. They base on the content of the game. Barney and Teletubbies fan always wins. Unless you are PowerRangers fan, that would match up to us. TTFN!

  • Holy crap on a stick so many people gonna regret it

  • Blaine

    well i haven’t even pre-ordered Ghosts… need more info about the game before trusting them with my money

    • Sentrymann

      At this point in the game I don’t know what more info you’d be expecting to get. If you haven’t seen it already, there is an hour long multiplayer conference on their youtube, and they’ve also let a lot of famous youtubers capture and upload 15 minutes of gameplay. People like Fwiz have actually separated that out to show you a lot of different aspects of the game. Hope this helped 🙂

    • asdf

      I agree with Sentrymann……I mean they just let the whole game out, look to the sides of this site there are your MP characters throughout this site you can even find a WHOLE summary on the whole game.

  • Crusf

    Meanwhile at Activision HQ…

    • asdf

      SO ACCURATE!!!

    • Bryan Salas

      Holy shit I remember seeing this movie as a kid! That’s awesome!

    • YouHardscope

      Funny

    • Atheistmason3

      Tbh, call of duty is pretty much the only successful franchise right now for Activision (excluding blizzard). Imagine how much EA is making

      • asdf

        Yeah from the round up of 100000 horrible unsuccessful games EA has they probably reach half that pile!
        *Activition has the top two best selling games in the market: Skylanders and COD……..that’s enough to be more successful. Even though I think there are like 3 people who are buying sport games for Kinect that might help…sarcasm*

      • Activision is worth 9 Billion and is currently the largest gaming producers. They also have a even larger game series then CoD, call Skylanders. It brings in even more revenue then CoD.

      • MeisseN

        Haha, one COD against all EA’s stuff.
        By the way Medal of Honor died at the hands of EA, imagine how much more EA is killing

      • Did you forget about Skylanders, World of Warcraft and Diablo 3? Those things bring in so much money too.

  • Santana

    Gta V and Ghosts

    • asdf

      Is there anything else…..OH YEAH Halo 5 when they officially announce it

      • BarneyTeleTubbiesLover

        Are you a xbox fanboy? Most of the games you want to get are from xbox. How about Infamous Second Son?(That game looks badass). Its true that xbox one has cool games like titanfall.(not considered exclusive) Halo died once bungie stopped making Halo. I really enjoyed halo 1-3. I’m not a playstation fanboy as i have both xbox and playstation. I only play xbox for FPS.

  • Bryan Salas

    The only thing that I worry about is the No theater mode part and no league play part. It seems kind of lazy on their part for having a call of duty and no theater. I guess they added character customization to balance teh lazyness. lol

    • exeterman2

      There is no theatre mode because it was one of the main factors in what caused the lag in the past 3 cod games. Not laziness, actually doing their job.

    • Siftblade of Rivia

      Seriously, theater was a cool addition, but it’s not a big deal. Plus, they’re reducing lag, so gg IW, gg.

  • kickass

    sure 12 million on ps3 sold last year

  • IfeBakarey

    I don’t have anything pre-ordered yet, but once Fallout 4 is annouced, that is getting pre-ordered instantly.

  • Jeff s

    COD games are always the most pre-ordered game. Tell us something we don’t know, like…is ps4 going to have dedicated servers?

  • BarneyTeleTubbiesLover

    This is one of the coolest GTA V website ever!

  • arturkrang

    piece of shit

  • BSOG

    Well, technically it’s WATCH_DOGS, but okay, and I may be preordering it soon.

    Also, I read somewhere that GTA V had more preorders than Ghosts, but I guess it has been surpassed already.
