Call of Duty: Ghosts is Amazon’s best-selling game, 6 months before release

Just 24 hours after Activision officially unveiled Call of Duty: Ghosts, pre-orders for the game have soared straight to the top of the charts on Amazon.

The game will not be shipped until November 5th this year, but that hasn’t stopped thousands of eager gamers putting their orders in more than six months early.

In the UK, the game is currently occupying the number one and number two spots in the gaming chart for the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions respectively.

On the other side of the Atlantic Ocean, the game sits in third place behind Xbox Live and PSN memberships, which still makes it the best-selling video game overall.

It’s top of the Xbox games chart and second in the PS3 category behind Bioshock Infinite, according to Slashgear’s report.

The company will showcase game footage for the first time at Microsoft’s big new Xbox reveal on May 21st, so pre-order sales will surely surge further once the world knows more than just the title, release date and the slightest hint of a plot.

During its announcement on Wednesday, Activision confirmed that the game will appear on “next generation platforms” which was taken to mean the PlayStation 4 and whatever form Microsoft’s next console takes.

We can’t wait to see what developer Infinity Ward has to offer on May 21. That Xbox event is shaping up to be the tech launch of the year.
