Shock – Call of Duty: Ghosts is UK No.1

Activision’s Call of Duty: Ghosts is, of course, the new UK No.1 according to the latest UKIE GfK Chart-Track figures.

However, while most would have expected the shooter to claim the title of second biggest launch of 2013 behind Grand Theft Auto V it actually falls short of that, becoming the year’s third biggest launch after Rockstar’s game and FIFA 14 – the latter of which suffered big year-on-year falls, remember.

Xbox 360 claimed 62 per cent of Ghosts’ sales, with PS3 claiming 43 per cent and, surprisingly, PS4 claiming three per cent – despite not being out until November 29th.

In fact, Ghosts on PS4 outsold the PS3 versions of both Assassin’s Creed IV and Battlefield 4.

The numbers also show that Battlefield 4 has shifted a total of 6,000 more units than Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag in their first two weeks.

There’s a new entry in 13th for Nintendo’s Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy.

"Our aim is to provide control to the publishers so that they have the ability to understand where their products are. They have the ability to say 'Okay, I want my product to go exactly here, under these conditions, for this net price, and I don't want it to go elsewhere.' That's essentially what the platform allows."
