While it may have failed to achieve an unblemished string of record-breaking launches, there are seemingly a lot of people waiting for next-gen hardware to play Call of Duty: Ghosts. New information from market research firm Chart Track indicates that the PlayStation 4 version of Ghosts, unplayable until the console releases at the end of this week, has even outperformed sales for both the PC and Wii U versions of the title combined

Now, I'll grant you that these platforms are not where Call of Duty generally sees major success, but to observe a game selling better on a console not even in stores yet still seems a little strange.

I'm also curious to see how the title will perform on Xbox One when it goes on sale, as the Xbox 360 release has beaten out the PlayStation 3 version by nearly two-to-one. While I don't think of Call of Duty as being a "system seller" or "killer app," there are tons of people for whom it's the only game which matters. If there's any sense of brand loyalty to the Xbox platform from these fans, it might actually give Microsoft an edge they need to help counter the higher price they're demanding for their new hardware.

Dumb Idiot Ideas: Voice pack mistakes

Max had his dumbest idea yet; handing the show over to me. What if more games had downloadable content voice packs the way they put Snoop Dogg into Call of Duty: Ghosts? What kind of celebrities would work for that kind of thing? The answers may surprise you.more

Get a taste of the R. Lee Ermey Call of Duty voice pack

Next week, Infinity Ward is set to drop two voice packs for multiplayer -- Snoop Dogg, and R. Lee Ermey. While Snoop's studio visit was previewed already, Ermey's wasn't -- it didn't even have a price or date confirmed, in fact. But now we know that it's going to hit at the same time as Snoop, on April 22nd for $2.99. Check out the video in full, and hear the iconic drill sergeant for yourself.more

Ubisoft is sending someone to Mt. Everest to play Far Cry 4

I want to play Far Cry 4 and, yeah, scaling a mountain like Everest would be a once-in-a-lifetime trip -- but playing Far Cry 4 *on* Mt. Everest? Not for me, sadly. That said, someone out there -- the one lucky person chosen...more

The Far Cry 4 devs went to Nepal and watched an animal sacrifice

It's not uncommon for developers to travel to far and distant lands to immerse themselves in the culture that they aim to represent in the videogames they're creating. What is uncommon (I imagine) is to watch a goat get sacr...more
