COD: Ghosts and Skylanders Swap Force top Dec. 2013 sales
Activision is allowed to do some chest pumping today as Call of Duty: Ghosts was the best selling game in December, while Skylanders SWAP Force was #2.
Ghosts was not only the #1 selling title last month, but the #1 selling next-gen title on both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, according to the NPD Group.
As for Skylanders, it was right behind COD in terms of overall sales, and #1 in the kids department, while also becoming the #3 game franchise overall in the U.S.
“Call of Duty: Ghosts is the #1 best-selling next gen launch title on both Xbox One and PS4, and for the second year in a row Skylanders was the #1 top-selling kids video game franchise,” said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing, Inc.
“This consumer response to both Call of Duty: Ghosts and Skylanders speaks to the deep connection both franchises have made with fans, which fuels our commitment to delivering great games time and again.”
Seems like despite a minority of gamers complaining that Ghosts doesn’t do much different from previous COD titles, gamers are still speaking louder with their wallets.
