A research study from firm InfoScout has stated that Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 won Black Friday as the top selling game for Black Friday weekend. In addition, their report states that the PS4 won Black Friday in terms of overall console sales.

Top charts from InfoScouts:

The boost in sales came from sales from retailers such as Walmart and Amazon, knocking off $10 on Flash Deals throughout the weekend. Many retailers also heavily discounted the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of the title.

  • Not even surprised Tbh.

  • But honestly, just $10 off isn’t much.

    • Keshav Bhat

      I think the big thing was that those $10 off on XB1 & PS4 version was not announced before, and just happened

      • WhiskeyDick

        Mine wasn’t $10 off… Was $59.99 at Best Buy, but the deal was if you purchased one of select ps4 games a 3 month ps plus subscription was $4.99

        I must say though, the amount of camping on bo3 is disgusting…

        • I tend to just play zombies because of that lol.
          And I guess $10 helps…kinda shake-y on that.
          If it was $20 off, i’d say it’s a proper sale though

        • Keshav Bhat

          Yeah, it was on sale at Walmart and Amazon only for the PS4 & XB1 versions

        • Greg Sieracki

          That’s why I liked AW it was easier to kill campers and there wasn’t as many as bo3

  • alex

    TBH it’s a good game better than the last 2 years

  • Bored of hearing “mess with the best, die like the rest” already. They need to do something about this Winners Triangle…

    • ToonToons22

      I once left a game of BO3’s multiplayer because I got tired of hearing Outrider say “one shot, one kill, won’t even hear it coming” after every single match.

      • Wraith

        GET BACK TO BOOT CAMP

        • LostInPasta

          Full metal everything.

          • Ayob Rossi

            I hate hearing “The 54 immortals crushed all our positions”

      • Seisher

        HAHAHAHAHA!

      • RobMelchor

        It’s funny how when you read it you can actually hear their voices in your head hahaha

    • Kobrah

      Eventually more people will win new sayings…. Hopefully soon!

      • RdJokr

        If RNGesus allows them… The best I got was the Gunslinger gesture for Outrider, and a Salute gesture for Prophet… I really want the “Now I am become Death” taunt for Spectre.

        • Kobrah

          I’ve only got one for flame thrower guy (name escapes me RN) and I’ve opened tons of SDs!

          • I believe it’s Firebreak.

          • Kobrah

            That’s the one! ?

        • RobMelchor

          In my opinion Firebreak is the best Specialist.

    • CAMPING_CAMPER88

      I will pay $ for my toon to say “camp with me next time.”

    • jordanxbrookes

      I agree. At first I liked the idea of a Winner’s Circle, but hearing “One shot, one kill, won’t even hear it coming” and “Full Metal Everything” all the time is annoying. This is something I hope IW doesn’t include. Just my thoughts.

      • CoDforever

        dude new lines will come as the game progresses ..

        • iext23

          There’s no way to be sure of that unless you have Treyarch’s DLC release schedule. I’m not saying that it won’t happen, I’m just saying that we can’t be sure that it will.

          • CoDforever

            Its already in the supply drops .. every characters has 9 different lines

          • iext23

            But those are already in the game, you asked about new lines.

    • RobMelchor

      I heard her voice in my head as I read it!!! D:

    • iext23

      Makes more sense to call it the Winner’s Triangle. I like that.

  • YoungMurf

    Quite surprised Destiny isn’t in the top 20. On the other hand I’m not at all surprised that Black Ops 3 is the top selling game.

    • CoDforever

      destiny is shit

      • jordanxbrookes

        It’s better than what it was at launch. I’m not a fan of Destiny, but my mates really love it. Also btw Black Ops 3 has a lot of Destiny features so I unless you hate Black Ops 3 I wouldn’t exactly call it shit.

      • YoungMurf

        That’s your opinion, probably gonna get a lot of stick for this but I really enjoy playing Destiny when I’m burnt out playing CoD.

  • Gamerazor247

    Not surprised, was unavaible in 3 hours once the sales went live online. But in all honesty, what made mommies and grandad’s want to buy this on Black Friday when there was barely any difference…

  • Glad to see an increase in player count!

    • RdJokr

      Wait till Christmas. Then we’ll see a true increase. It’s gonna be one hell of a noob hunting season.

      • jordanxbrookes

        Best time of the year for guys like me ;P

  • Ryumoau

    I’m really glad both Fallout 4 and Black Ops 3 seem on track to be the top two games of the year. I’ve been rotating between the two games and enjoying them both in different ways. 🙂

    • Stealthninja808

      Same, except I rarely have time to sit down and fully enjoy quality fallout time, it’s easier to drop into a mp game.

  • CheEsEToUcH666

    surprised fallout 4 is 8th!

    • iext23

      lol probably because so many people already have it.

      • Drank Bleach

        Exactly, Fallout 4 is the biggest launch of 2015, it surpassed bo3, it made $750 millions in 24 hours.

        • CoDforever

          I highly doubt that.

          • Drank Bleach
          • CoDforever

            None of that looks official from Bethesda

          • Drank Bleach

            Haha, this guy is hating. Look on google and it’ll tell you the same thing, there are plenty of games beside call of duty you know, and you must be crazy thinking fallout 4 is not as popular as gta, you must have not seen the numerous amount of people wanting fallout 4. Besides I looked at the link you gave and it also says 24 thousand people rated bo3 while 41 thousand rated fallout 4.

          • CheEsEToUcH666

            CoDfovever, as much as a love treyarch and black ops, fallout was just a better package.

          • TheAdversary

            He’s not necessarily speaking in terms of quality. His argument is about gaming popularity, despite the multitude of undercurrents he’s formed in his posts.

          • CoDforever

            That $750 million could have been shipped copies for all we know, not copies sold. And Fallout 4 is definitely not as big as GTA V, you must be high if you think so. Fallout 4 only attracts hardcore gamers and RPG fans, not really teens/Casuals but GTA V attracted both and everyone. So yes, 120% sure its nowhere near as popular as GTA V.

            When the fuck do people give a shit about ratings/likes? You know ghosts on ps4 has like 60k likes but BF4 has 160k likes yet BF4 didnt even touch cod ghosts in sales. COD players dont tend to rate their games because their mostly casual and dont give a shit while Fallout 4 hardcore players probably do.

          • iext23

            Are you saying there aren’t that many hardcore CoD players? Seems like you’re one of them, given your username and record of how many posts you’ve commented on here. Also, it sounds like you’re saying that all of the people who play Fallout 4 are hardcore. I know this to be false, because of how many people bought the game to have a bit of casual fun. Also, “Fallout 4 only attracts hardcore gamers and RPG fans, not really teens/casuals but GTA V attracted both and everyone.” As stated, Fallout 4 doesn’t ONLY attract hardcore gamers and RPG fans and definitely attracts teens/casuals. Most of my friends and their friends bought the game, and they’re teens/casuals. And GTA V didn’t attract EVERYONE, because most of my friends and their friends aren’t interested in the game. And people do care about ratings/likes. Whenever I buy a game, I’m not going to purchase a game with a low rating just because it “looks cool.” I’m a smart buyer and like to be educated about my purchases.

          • Greg Sieracki

            Why u in a black ops 3 site then? Go to a fallout 4 site u little shit

          • iext23

            Such hostility. Maybe he likes both games? I happen to like more than one game series, and I bet you do, too. Also, calling him a “little shit” is unnecessary. Besides, what did he ever say to you? You haven’t even added to the debate, you only stepped in to call him a “little shit.” It’s people like you who detract from the overall purpose of the comments section. You aren’t debating about a game, you’re criticizing and name-calling.

        • CheEsEToUcH666

          CoDfovever. as much as a love treyarch and black ops, fallout was just a better package.

        • Eric

          Actually that was only copies shipped, not sold. A common video game publisher PR trick. Activision did it with Ghosts saying it shipped $1 billion in the first three days. Black Ops III is the best selling game this year

        • RobMelchor

          Fallout 4, not my cup of tea…

        • iext23

          That’s pretty crazy.

      • CoDforever

        Bullshit, look at twitch numbers its always below bo3

        • Drank Bleach

          Really, you’re looking at twitch numbers? Just because bo3 is played on twitch more doesn’t mean people aren’t playing fallout 4 on their couch at home.

          • CoDforever

            Bo3 is also above fallout 4 in the most popular games of xbox live https://store.xbox.com/en-US/Xbox-One?SortBy=MostPopular

            and 750 million in general is way too good to be true, thats almos GTA V level of sales and Fallout 4 is definitely nowhere near as big in popularity as GTA V was

        • iext23

          Just because they aren’t streaming doesn’t mean they aren’t playing it. :/

          • CoDforever

            then go check xbox live activity charts

          • iext23

            The charts were discontinued on late 2013, because Major Nelson stated that there was no need for him to update them.

          • CoDforever

            He stopped updating them because you can view it real time on the offical xbox games store. Here

          • iext23

            Thanks. Does PlayStation have activity charts?

  • Jay Evan

    Great, now use all that money to give us some actual customization variety!

    • Let’s not make it like AW shall we? I do agree that a little more would be nice, but AW imo really took it too far.

      • Jay Evan

        All you have to do is not give us shitty gear SETS. The customization was fine if it was just kept more in the military setting.
        Giving me only heads and body styles that are impossible to astheticly compliment each other is HORRIBLE.

      • jordanxbrookes

        I’d love Ghosts customization, but sadly IW are the only ones that seem to keep to a military-style soldier. Inb4 someone mentions the fucking Astronaut.

    • Yeah totally. I need my taco bell outfit ASAP

      • Jay Evan

        I never said I wanted Ridiculous gear sets.
        I want to my version of Ruin look completely different from everyone else’s in the lobby.

        • The customization is fine honestly. My Seraph looks different from anyone else in the lobby and I’m using the stuff I earned. A little more stuff would be nice, but I’m not bothered because the customization is nice. Its not over the top, ridiculous and over all basic which is nice. And i hope they stick to it. But even if they don’t more I’ll be fine because it’s good the way it is.

        • RdJokr

          Don’t worry. There are plenty of Black Market slots to add in more shit later in the year.

      • jooker-jr

        And an astronaut suit.

  • Show N Prove

    Anybody else think they need to fix the gun game crypto key glitch asap?

  • MERCENARYCOMBAT

    Everyone have a good December!

  • Kyle Soule

    Not surprised…

  • LostInPasta

    I was surprised fallout was so low, but i bet most people bought it earlier or it wasn’t on sale.

  • RobMelchor

    Fresh noobs in lobbies 😀

  • RobMelchor

    The “Need for Speed” reboot nowhere to be seen! D:
