The NPD numbers for March 2014 are out, and for the first month since Ghosts’s launch (COD Ghosts was #1 for December, Jan, and February), Ghosts is no longer #1 selling title. Titanfall came in first place, and InFamous Second Son took second. South Park The Stick of Truth took third.

Call of Duty: Ghosts was the #4th best selling title for March 2014.

In terms of next-gen consoles, PS4 took the #1st place spot, as Sony yesterday announced the console had reached 7 million sales worldwide and Microsoft reached 5 million.

    And now we wait for the negative people to begin laughing at Ghosts

    • Trollipop

      Haha ghosts sucks

      • why does it suck? because it got outsold? sales doen’t make a game any better

    • Crusf

      You mean the people who die alot in MP

      • Siftblade of Rivia

        Doing good or bad in MP has nothing to do with it. I can have a great game in Ghosts, it doesn’t mean I had fun doing so.

        • Crusf

          I beg to differ. I’ve seen too many people who die three times in a row and immediately regret paying 60 dollars. Not even touching the other modes. That’s not constructive criticism.

            The game is bad, if you add up of how many people play ghosts on the xbox 360 and one there are beating black ops 2 by about 5-6000? Appalling to say black ops 2 been out over a year and 6 months. Only good thing there made for that game was clan wars because it brings a bit of competitiveness to that game, other than that nothing else is good.

            Don’t have ps4 so wouldn’t know

          • Grenada!

            Are you high? I play on PS4 and Ghosts only gets about 10-15000 players at peak times, it’s the same with the X1. The game is almost dead on the next-gen consoles but I’m sure Ghosts has still got a decent player base on current-gen.

          • Crusf

            No i’m afraid your high! Straight from my PS4! Stop making up numbers without any proof just to bash the game!

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            That’s some people. Others like myself have my own, legitimate reasons. But I see your point.

        • Grenada!

          Agreed. I could go a game of TDM and get like a 20-1 and I would still be bored since Ghosts has stale gameplay.

      • Die more often*

  • Mitch

    Not surprised by the fact CoD dropped, but it will be interesting where it will end up for April. What surprises me however is that PS4 still outsold the XB1 in it’s home territory (US), even when Microsoft threw in a copy of Titanfall at no additional cost.

    • jordanxbrookes

      2 reasons why this could be:
      1] People don’t want to pay extra costs to include the Kinect
      2] People want to play in the best quality at native 1080p and not 792p
      I for one didn’t mind paying extra for the Kinect and I’m also not too fussed about the whole resolution aspect. I do hope though that by the end of the year Xbox One games are in native 1080p.

      • thejimmyj57

        Yea a graphics boost is coming later this year for XB1. And also ps4s are same price as XB1 in Canada now lol.

        • jordanxbrookes

          I guess it depends on where you live in the world but good for Canada anyways.

  • jordanxbrookes

    To be honest, I’m pretty sure the majority of us knew that Titanfall would take the top spot in March. Also Infamous: Second Son was hyped up for PlayStation 4 users so it’s no wonder why it took over Call of Duty’s spot as well. Still gonna play Ghosts, but congrats to both Microsoft and Sony for doing well with their recently launched games.

    • Guest

      In all fairness, SS did pretty well considering Titanfall was bundled free with the X1 and had a free year of XBL and never had a massive hype train in the media since E3, you could tell Microsoft paid with some sort of Titanfall blow out, it didn’t require you to be a detective to notice almost every media outlet had tonnes of Titanfall adverts and hype articles

    • Siftblade of Rivia

      Honestly, the day that Titanfall was released was the day that all the hype died. It won’t last long.

      • Crusf

        The way IGN was all over it annoyed me to no end. “Believe the hype.” Yeah I believed it for a day.

        • Siftblade of Rivia

          It’s a good game and all. But it was way overhyped, and it will soon die out.

          • Abraham

            I’m still hyped when I play Titanfall. I suppose I have a healthy dose of hype. I think this game has much potential in the coming years. Just my thoughts.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            I meant hype as in hearing about it all over the internet and such. Of course, people who own the game could still be excited to play it.

          • Mr Doge

            I love how everything that Microsoft releases or is a part of is instantly though to be crap or will die out very shortly. It’s kind of sad really. I’m not a kiss-ass but Microsoft has released some pretty good stuff in the past like Halo and Titanfall etc.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            I’m not saying it’s crap, it’s a great, fun game that I can play every once in a while when I’m bored. It’s not the type of game, like CoD, that you can play throughout a whole year. The hype for the game is already gone because it was overhyped before release, and there’s not much to do in the game. It’s just a simple FPS with no story, etc. Also, I never said Halo sucked. Back in it’s glory days it was great, in fact, it was one of the best, but right now, I personally don’t like it at all.

          • Confirminator

            You need to play capture the flag and experience 15 minute games. I think Titanfall has better gameplay than CoD, when it comes to fun. I would go to CoD for competitive gameplay though.

          • Mr Doge

            Yeah I see what you mean. I guess the only reason why games like CoD or Battlefield don’t get boring is because of unlocks. In CoD you have 10 prestiges and you have emblems, backgrounds, camos, now character uniforms etc. Same with Battlefield, you have like what? 70 or even more guns with heaps of attachments, 10 different knives, max level takes forever and a whole lot of other stuff. Titanfall relies solely on gameplay. There literally nothing to unlock in it besides a couple of guns and Titans.

        • And IMO was way too overrated.
          BTW, check this fight between AngryJoe and the dude form IGN who reviewed Titanfall

      • Psychomaggot105

        Ya I bought it for x1. Played it for a day and never put back it the console. Anyone want a copy? I’ll sell it for 40$.

      • The game gets boring nearly instantly

      • Grenada!

        And the day CoD Ghosts came out was the day that everyone found out it was garbage and went back to previous CoD games. At this rate CoD won’t last long if it keeps pumping out shit game year after year.

      • Guy

        I disagree. The game is still very fun and they plan to support it with DLC and free updates that add content. I’m excited for its future.

            Or b/c they hate the game. It’s so different as to other cod titles in multiplayer, which is why less people are playing it than any other cod. Especially Nadeshot, he said it’s the worst COD ever made

        • Grenada!

          Black Ops 2 is 100x better than Ghosts, it was fun and it had that fast paced action that should be in a CoD game unlike Ghosts where it’s, who can camp the most and kill people with their 2 shot guns.

            BO2 is not what CoD is about. CoD 4 is much closer to Ghosts than Bo2 will ever be.

          Ghosts is bad , what is the point of ranking up in that game when you basically get everything soon as you move onto your second solider? May aswell tell you to pick a gun and use dead silence and amplify.

        • Guy

          I always said Black Ops 2 was a good game, and I knew going into Ghosts that I would probably like BO2 more than Ghosts. Treyarch has always been better than IW with the exception of CoD4.

        • Мальчиков

          “not good as a ghost” bitch please Ghosts is worst COD of all COD History..

      • Inmate

        In my opinion black ops 2 was the worst CoD to date. Ghosts is a very great game. So is Titanfall. This article about Titanfall and whatever the other game was was inevitable. Titanfall was so hyped up

        • Hashtag

          Too many campers in ghosts, the kill streaks are terrible , the games aren’t fast paced, there isn’t no headquarters hard point or demolition,?

            Well bo2 had horrible lag, multiplayer was sooooooooooooo boring, zombies was the worst, campaign sucked, multiplayer just sucked.

            I guess my point is that the WHOLE game sucked. At least ghosts gave us something new with extinction, squads, a new story line, and better multiplayer.

          • Hashtag

            Better multiplayer ? So why are ghosts only beating black ops 2 by 5000 people combined on xbox one and 360? The game is awful, black ops 2 a full year old still nearly competing with ghosts absolutely terrible

            Yes better multiplayer! Black ops 2 blew all around. It got so old. In my opinion ghosts is a fresh game and they better make a sequel just as good. If you don’t like ghosts why are you here?

    Good, Ghosts really doesn’t deserve to be the top game since its gameplay is stale and repetitive.

    Tbh the only reason I still go on this site to to find news on the new call of duty. I hate ghosts with a passion. I personally loved each call of duty before that though.
