Call of Duty Ghosts on PS4 outsells Wii U and PC combined

Premature acquisition

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.
