    Mothers, and in my case sister and grandmother, dont know better. I never put "CoD" on any sort of list when they hound me for one, yet I ALWAYS end up with one
    Pretty much why this for why those games still sell. We always see sales but of. Course no way to see returns of games.

    Going by those figures, most of the people that bought COD also bought something else.
    A lot of people might be skewed by people like me though.

    3 sports games + KZ SF + AC4 + NFS Rivals = 6 games.

    According to the early numbers, there is a 2.5 game tie-in at launch, great way to kick off a console launch. With the multiplats plus the exclusives plus all the exclusive F2P, some people trying to write about "no good launch games" are full of $#@!. A lot of people enjoy the CoD experience, it is fun for them, so what? And I know I will be playing hundreds of hours of BF4, makes that worth it on its own (the helicopters are actually flyable and base jumping that works). Killzone:SF is so much eye candy, it makes my teeth ache. Then there is only so much time before the next set of titles start being released. It sounds like more than a few megaton title announcements before the end of the year.

    I personally picked up 3 games with mine and none of them COD *shudders at the thought*. BF4 KZ and LEGO Marvel for me. Pleased to see so many games being sold despite COD being at the forefront.

    What I want to know is if the $10 upgrades are considered sales. Would skew the AC4, BF4 and COD numbers

    Probably ACIV is my next one.

    I wouldn't say it's 100 % accurate, but as far as i know they contact major sellers and collect their data. I could say they are 85-90% accurate the few hundreds missing won't affect the numbers all that much.

    It's exactly the same? Yikes. I know PvZ disc or download for PS3 was $20 full price compared to $1 on iOS, so there's pretty obviously an artificial console premium, but PvZ did have co-op play and I think a few other console-only features.

    2.46 is nicer than the PS3's launch window attach rate of, depending on where you read it, 1.9 or 2.0. But XOne's launch window attach rate will be higher than PS4's. I don't think they'll sell more consoles but I think they'll sell more games per console. Still, I'll be surprised if XOne breaks X360's launch window attach rate of 4.2. 4.2 is awfully high for a console, though purely from a marketing perspective if not game quality -- which is arguable -- Xbox 360 had an impressive launch lineup. One they aren't repeating with One. You know they were dying for Titanfall to make launch. You just know it.

    (It's bugging me how a lot of games press are reporting industry consultant analysis and prediction of games sales. The reporters write about console attach rates and then in the next graf they write about some games having higher or lower attach rates compared with different games. Consoles have an attach rate. Games attach, but they only have an "attach rate" if you're writing about, say, Call of Duty Black Ops 2 having a higher DLC attach rate than BioShock Infinite, or whatever. You could write it that way, I suppose, using "attach rate" to describe DLC sales, but it's an uncommon usage.)

    THIS.

    Amazon sold a TON of PS4 systems, and I'm sure games as well...

    I preordered a PS4, extra controller and just one game, COD Ghosts myself...

    Once I got my PS4 on the 15th from Amazon, Amazon then sent me an email thanking me for purchasing COD:Ghosts and giving me a special code to take advantage of the Buy 2 get 1 free deal as the code allowed me to buy ONE more and get ONE FREE! (Even though I had pre-ordered Ghosts way back last summer) At that point, I would have been kinda silly NOT to take advantage of a Buy One-Get One Free deal for brand new PS4 launch titles.

    If I'm correct, if you had already preordered or bought two, you got a code for a free game without any further purchase. I'm sure Sony worked with Target to include PS4 games in their b2g1 deal before the PS4 launch week. A great way to post higher attach rates, and they knew some online and offline retailers would probably match the deal. But it makes me wonder what the attach rate would have been without that deal. Around PS3's launch attach rate, I suspect. Perhaps a little higher or lower.

    Comments like these are ridiculous. Is it so hard to accept that a lot of people think the multiplayer aspect of these games are fun? I have yet to enjoy a mp on another game as much as cod. And I don't recall people with aspbergers having a great need to fit in with the rest of society.

    I'm honestly not surprised by this. People will gravitate towards cod until they come to realize that series isn't good at all. When the system is released everywhere else I am sure some of these numbers will change.

    COD isn't garbage as a whole it's just that they make one great one and follow it with a $#@!ty one. It's always hit, miss, hit, miss. I'll be selling my copy of Ghosts after I'm through the campaign. I have no doubt the next gen COD will be awesome.
