Call of Duty: Ghosts has officially taken over the UK sales chart to become the number 1 selling game across United Kingdom. The #1 was the Xbox 360 version, #2 was the PS3 version, and surprisingly, the PS4 version came in as #3. That’s pretty impressive because the PS4 doesn’t launch for three more weeks in the UK. The PS4 version even sold more than Wii-U.

Even more, the PS4 version beat the PS3 version’s of BF4 and Assassin’s Creed IV.

Released on Tuesday, sales were split 62% on XB360, 34% PS3, 3% PS4 and the rest on PC and Wii U. Despite Sony’s new console not due in stores until November 29th, Activision Blizzard released the PS4 version alongside the current formats. The PS4 version performs spectacularly well for a game that consumers will not be able to actually play for another 3 weeks, managing to outsell the PS3 versions of ‘Assassin’s Creed IV’ and ‘Battlefield 4’. Beaten to No1 by ‘Assassin’s Creed IV’ (-63%) last week, ‘Battlefield 4’ ( -54%) holds on to No2, outselling the popular Ubisoft title by 6,000 units across their first two weeks of launch.

Call of Duty: Ghosts for Xbox One is launching on Nov. 15th in Europe, so there’s no sales numbers for that yet.

    This isn’t a surprise at all lol

    There needs to be more backgrounds in Ghosts. It’s a sick game but there’s not much to aim for once you’re prestige 10. 1000 headshots on MW2 kept me playing for hours.

        It’s too good to say once 😉

    Congrats to Infinity Ward! 🙂

    Also, kinda shocking to see the ps4 version even beat out the current gen version of battlefield. lol

  • I thought UK was Sony territory?

      Xbox 360 is really popular among schoolkids in the UK, I guess because it came out a year earlier and by the time it came to getting consoles most of their friends had the 360.

    Did really Ghosts surpassed GTA V in sales finally?

    • Ryumoau

      according to the article in the original link, Ghosts has the THIRD highest opening in UK for 2013, behind Fifa and GTA V. So apparently in UK at least, GTA V still sold more copies.

      I didn’t expect it to beat GTA though, since that game had years of hype behind it.

        Is FIFA ahead of CoD? That is surprising

        • Mitch

          Not really, FIFA is huge in Europe, especially England since they probably have the most populair and best football league in the world.

            Yea that’s true but until last year BO2 was the best selling game ever that’s why they said GTA V took the throne this year …or am I wrong? Am I stupid? Am I leaving in a dream? Am I a faggot? A retard?

      There was no chance they would have anyway. Aside from a new GTA launching only every 4 or 5 years, many people are also planning on getting Ghosts for either PS4 or Xbone so sales are going to be lower no matter what. If current gen versions, the PS4 version, all launched on the 22nd along with the Xbone version, there’s a good chance it would have outsold GTAV. Maybe next year.
