Does this mean that next week, the top pre-ordered title will be Watch Dogs?

TomShoe1852d ago

Yep. Should be Watch Dogs (PS4), GT6, and then Destiny (PS4).

JokesOnYou1852d ago (Edited 1852d ago )

Uh-Oh, a certain title is on the Ryse, with much better preorders at 135k, 3rd in terms of console games weekly bump behind a COD @30k, Forza5 @ almost 25k, Ryse bumped up @23k. Hell all of X1 exclusives preorders are doing well DR3 is neck and neck with Ryse preorder totals.

I still think digital is going to play a major factor more so than ever before in X1 game sales this gen.

GiggMan1852d ago

@Jokes, Ryse is on the rise. Microsoft is doing the right thing if you ask me and delaying the reviews for it. Dead Rising is going to sell well and deserves it also.

Eonjay1852d ago (Edited 1852d ago )


Its interesting how close the sales of Ryse and DR3 are to each other. I'm not really sure if I agree with their decision to postpone Ryse reviews though. Are you saying that their strategy is to promote each separately?

If Ryse is really good, I think a better strategy would be to get it out there early to build up as much hype as possible before launch.

I'm not a marketing expert but this is what I would do... because it seems like folks are buying these titles in pairs.

GiggMan1852d ago

@Eonjay, I'm thinking that they may not have that much confidence in how it's going to review. The previews are all over the place and you can never tell with the gaming media.

I agree with you and think it's strange that they would hold Ryse reviews until the last minute.

So I guess COD pro-orders for XBO surpassed PS4.

TomShoe1852d ago

The PS4 version is already out...

Funantic11852d ago

Well the PS4 version of COD:Ghost had 440,772 preorders the week of the PS4 release date. The Xbone has 462,512 preorders of COD this week of their launch. So the X1 did surpass the PS4 in preorders on that game in particular relative to their launches.

TheFallenAngel1852d ago (Edited 1852d ago )


The PS4 version on Ghosts have been for sale since November the 5th. Why would you pre order it when you can buy it?

scott1821852d ago


Are we talking about pre orders in the same time frame, or pre orders total. Because people are just buying it now for the ps4. X1 is releasing a week later so it is bound to have more total pre orders.

nasnas761852d ago

@TheFallenAngel Re-read his statement. He compared 2 different weeks, only counting the release week of each system. Last week = PS4, this week = xbox. Numbers would be fair comparing the numbers to its own launch week window.

aceitman1852d ago

Software figures for the US first two days are also in. Call of Duty: Ghosts leads the pack with sales 703,638.

Riderz13371852d ago

Yes but it's worth noting that Xbox One version had 30K additional pre orders the week before launch whereas the PS4 had 80K additional pre orders the week before launch.

mkis0071852d ago

Ps4 launch titles will not be on that list due to the fact they can't be preordered...they are just sold...if you want to see Sales go look up amazons 2013 best sellers list...Killzone is the highest at 24/100 (crazy beating out bioshock 360 and far cry 360). 26 is AC4 for ps4, 32 is Ghosts for ps4, 53 is battlefield ps4, 79 is knack, and as of now 100 is Ghosts for xbox1(Only been on sale a day, but it does take into account preorders that have shipped).

I think it is weird how more poeple are preordering watch dogs than forza.

nasnas761852d ago

"Ps4 launch titles will not be on that list due to the fact they can't be preordered...they are just sold"

you can change the dates to get previous week's sales numbers

mkis0071852d ago

Well then of course xbox1 preorders will be was preorderable for nearly 2 weeks longer! Nov5th ps4 ov19th? Xbox1

Rimeskeem1852d ago

COD needs to die a little

mkis0071852d ago

Needs a major overhaul. Cancel all projects and start over. Get some new ideas in there. I for one think they should sell the game in 2 parts, charge $20 for the insane story and $40 for the multiplayer, that way people like me will give them sales.

Naga1852d ago (Edited 1852d ago )

Just crunched the some numbers in case anyone is interested. If the VGChartz data is correct, that's 1,533,310 launch games currently pre-ordered for the Xbox One.

Xbox One exclusives (Forza, Ryse, DR3) account for 423,584 of those games, or 28%. It's worth noting that Killer Instinct and some other exclusives are not on the list.

It should be interesting to see how the final sales numbers are affected by all of the incoming reviews this week.

Dragonborn3121852d ago (Edited 1852d ago )

Awesome thanks for doing the math. It would be interesting to see what the numbers are for the PS4 launch games and how they compare. I wish worldwide preorder numbers were available, would be cool to see the global numbers.

HammadTheBeast1852d ago

There's an article about that, about 370 k for KZ on launch day, and about 100 k for Knack.

Automatic791852d ago (Edited 1852d ago )

I don't think reviews will play a big part at all most have there mind set whether the game is good or bad. You saw last week ps4 reviews. Look how many people purchased killzone and knack. That alone should be a good indicator that people just want a new system and incredible experiences being good or bad.

Naga1852d ago (Edited 1852d ago )

That's a good point, and I think you're probably right. Barring something big like Ryse getting an average score of less than 5/10, I don't think we'll see the reviews shift things much. And reviews for Ryse don't drop until just before launch, so even then we still wouldn't see much of an effect. Perhaps if there were more time between reviews and launch for people to change their mind, things might be different.

YodaCracker1852d ago (Edited 1852d ago )

Killer Instinct??? That is a free-to-play downloadable game... Why would it be on a retail pre-order list?

Naga1852d ago

Oh I didn't mean to suggest it should be on the list. I just noted that it isn't.

It's relevant because it's an Xbox One exclusive whose interest isn't being represented on the list. Note that I mentioned that immediately after bringing up the percentage of pre-orders that were Xbox One exclusives.

B-radical1852d ago

So sick of cod I reckon dr3 deserves top spot more

Dragonborn3121852d ago

Yeah I really hope Dead Rising 3 sells well, to show that there is demand for more quality installations in the series. Also really hope Ryse sells well as well, because hopefully that can turn into a long-last IP.
