GameStop Reports “Disappointing” Holiday Period, Says Infinite Warfare Suffered From Weak Sales

In a press release, US retailer GameStop has reported “disappointing” holiday sales in the video game segment, which it says is down to “industry weakness, promotional pricing pressure and lower in-store traffic.” Total global sales during the period amounted to $2.50 billion, which is a 16.4 percent decline compared to 2015’s holiday period. Total comparable store sales decreased by 18.7 percent. Interestingly, GameStop notes that Titanfall 2‘s and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare‘s “weak” sales “significantly” impacted the month of November alongside console promotions on Thanksgiving and Black Friday. CEO Paul Raines said in a statement: We are disappointed with our overall results, but looking broadly, we did see continued growth in our non-physical gaming businesses and we expect this category to approach 40% of our earnings in fiscal 2016. As we look forward to 2017, we remain focused on our transformation plan, which includes growing our non-gaming businesses, right-sizing our global store portfolio by continuously evaluating non-productive stores for closure, and maintaining strong financial discipline, including reducing SG&A by $100 million by 2019. While Infinite Warfare remains one of the top selling games of last year, it has suffered from an overall decline compared to its predecessor, Black Ops READ FULL STORY…

Infinite Warfare Tops UK Charts, Close to Topping Modern Warfare 2

Suppose It’s Not Call of Duty If It’s Not Topping Something for Awhile Take a before and after photo showing the UK Charts from 2016-2017, you’ll see Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s same mugshot. Yep, one of Activision’s most disappointing franchise releases now rests at #1 for the eighth week in a row. You heard me; eighth week in a row. What’s fascinating about this is that its so close to reaching Modern Warfare 2‘s record, despite being a rehashed franchise(depending on who you speak to). After some more weeks at the top, COD: Infinite Warfare could top Black Ops 3, which sits as the longest #1 of the series. But we’ll have to wait and see. While it may outlast other games of the franchise, beating in overall revenue is another matter. Speaking of, FIFA 17 retains sales number 2, continuing the series’ staying power. Following that, Grand Theft Auto V. A resurgence if ever there was one, Rockstar’s legendary title hits top five sold games over 3 years later. Here follows the Top 40 UK chart: 1 1 CALL OF DUTY: INFINITE WARFARE PEGI 18+ ACTIVISION 2 2 FIFA 17 PEGI 3+ EA SPORTS 4 3 GRAND THEFT AUTO V PEGI 18+ ROCKSTAR 3 4 BATTLEFIELD 1 PEGI 18+ EA GAMES…

UK Chart: Infinite Warfare Starts 2017 at #1

Picking up right where it left off last year, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare finished at #1 in the first week of 2017 in the UK, despite a 64% week-on-week drop. FIFA 17 also saw a big drop, but it remained in second, fending off Grand Theft Auto V, which rose from 4th to 3rd. If Infinite Warfare takes home another #1, it will match the 2nd highest number of 1st place finishes for a Call of Duty title, tying Modern Warfare 2 with nine. Black Ops 3 holds the franchise record with 11. Here’s the top 20 best-selling games through retail stores in the UK for the week ending January 7, 2017 according to GfK Chart-Track: Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare (down 64%) FIFA 17 (down 72%) Grand Theft Auto V (down 66%) Battlefield 1 Forza Horizon 3 (down 5%) Watch Dogs 2 Mafia III Rocket League Pokemon Sun (up 91%) Steep Skyrim Special Edition Gears of War 4 LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens Minecraft: Xbox Edition Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End Pokemon Moon (down 19%) WWE 2K17 The Division The Last Guardian Assassin’s Creed: The Ezio Collection With no new competition this week, Infinite Warfare will likely repeat at #1.

Revive your fallen teammates in Reinforce, starting tomorrow in #InfiniteWarfare! https://t.co/davc7W4Cyppic.twitter.com/RoEJzawJ3e — Infinity Ward (@InfinityWard) January 5, 2017 Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare players are in for a treat this weekend as the popular fan-favorite Reinforce mode is back in the game. The mode, which allows players to revive their teammates while they attempt to capture points, is live now and will be available until Monday at 10 AM PT. Infinity Ward also took to the r/InfiniteWarfare subreddit to send a message (and give some helpful advice) to players: Reinforce is a team elimination 4v4 mode where you capture points to revive fallen teammates. Taking all points or killing the enemy team will win the round. Some tips: You may want to wait to capture your first point until you need to revive your teammates that fell while taking “B”. As an elimination mode, move tactically and remember teamwork is key. See you all online! The mode has been previously rotated in and out of the game as a limited-time attraction. Naturally this has led to some fans of the game requesting that it gets added permanently. “Can we please keep this game mode In the game permanently READ FULL STORY AT…
