Edit: also xbone and ps4 preorders are most likely counted as well.
They don't count. Unless they shipped them out at the same time.
But yeah, Ghosts didn't break the record. It'll probably catch up after the Holidays.
They shipped PS4 as well. It sold decently in the UK first week, even though it was 2-3 weeks ahead of the console. Recent reports point out actual sell-through is tracking about 50% of where BLOPS2 was.
I don't know why anyone wanted to jump on the "CoD: Ghosts is gonna 1-up GTAV" bandwagon anyway..? Sales history clearly shows that CoD has been on a decline for years...so why anyone expected CoD sales to magically jump is a mystery to me. Not to mention they overlook the fact that there is a CoD every year, while GTA doesn't see a release for like 5+ years. There was no logical way that CoD: Ghosts was gonna outperform GTAV.
And what is an even bigger burn...is that GTAV launched on two consoles (PS3 & XB 360), whereas CoD Ghosts are across all platforms (XB 360, PS3, Wii-U, Vita, PC, etc).
