Forums - Sony Discussion - Call of Duty Ghosts Sales on PS4...WTF?

When you have the most popular console, the most popular franchises probably sells better on your console.
Besides that, the early adopters are the most casuals. Why do you think ea games selled so well?

Hardcore gaming is a bigger niche than you think, if 30% of the install base is hardcore, consider yourself lucky.



"Hardware design isn’t about making the most powerful thing you can.
Today most hardware design is left to other companies, but when you make hardware without taking into account the needs of the eventual software developers, you end up with bloated hardware full of pointless excess. From the outset one must consider design from both a hardware and software perspective."

What else were they supposed to get.... Knack?

What I did, I enjoy platformers. *Shakes old man cane*



I don't understand why it's so bad for CoD to sell well. =/



Not surprising, I expected to be the lead seller on both the xbox one and PS6 until something worth buying is released.

Implying the Xbone will stay on the market until PS6 launches in 2025? :p



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

Did anyone else notice the numbers on the front page?  Apparantly 1 079 311 PS4s were sold and 808 779 copies of Cod Ghosts was sold on PS4, so 75% of the people that bought a PS4 got Cod Ghosts with it...does that make anyone die a little inside?  I guess FPS's are gonna be even more prevalent next gen than they were this gen.


How many of those people were upgrading for $10?

It;s not bad for COD to sell well but to me at least its a clear indicator that the "PS4 has won this Gen" crowd is getting way too far ahead of themselves. If the Ghosts and BF4 sales numbers are any indicator of where things are going (all systems combined) then it is going to take a whole lot more then a bunch of FPS games and half assed sequels to sell 80+ million units. Nintendo learned this the hard way already with NSMBU, and I have a feeling that Sony and Microsoft in about 6 months will be wondering why their sales have plopped, while the Wii U is selling like crazy.

Easily...

Boringfield 4? I don't want.
Killzone bad metas? I will buy but it won't be my main game.
Knack? No, thanks.
Resogun? It's free... so I already have it.
Assassin's Creed 4? More boring than Boringfiled 4.

Ohhhhhhhh give me my old, fun and good CoD please.

Funnily enough.. Assassin's Creed IV looks like the best game of that lot. Though, Resogun has been getting good reception as well.
