USA Pre-Order Chart: Week Ending 21st December 2013

Angie Santiago reports: "It seems as though the delay didn’t hinder gamers interest in Watch Dogs by too much – it’s the most pre-ordered game in the country right now. The PS4 version of the game stands at number one 2 weeks ago (December 15-December 21), which is the most recent statistics on the site. The game at the time stood at 213,747 pre-orders, might be slightly more or less at the time of this writing." (PS3, PS4, Watch Dogs, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Titan fall was announced not to long ago while watch dogs has had multiple showings at events a suppose launch release and now push back until further notice.im assuming those who pre ordered because it was suppose to be out at launch still have theres pre ordered. My guess is titan fall will increase in pre orders closer to release date.

@Mode "titanfall for xbone + pc = less than 100k."

160,830+51,496= 212,326 pre-orders umm yeah more than 100k. Turns out barely anyone's pre-ordering it for PC though the internet said they would. As for 360 well, that's the last alternative if you absolutely must have Titanfall.

Preorders in all for Titanfall: 255,614 pre-oders not bad expect that number to grow. Not just for this game but Destiny, The Division, Watchdogs, Infamous: Second Sun. The numbers for all the AAA's will only get better from here.

Watchdogs is multiplat title that got delayed. Its a well deserved number for the PS4 version I highly agree with you there.

I take VG Chartz figures with a good amount of skepticism as the site uses a lot of assumptions that may or may not be supported. However, I find the pre-order numbers very interesting. The top 2 pre-order games are Watchdogs for PS4 and Destiny for PS4. Titanfall for XB1 is sitting at 4th with 160,830 pre-orders. Titanfall is being touted as the "savior" of the XB1. All of the analysts and fanboys alike say "wait for Titanfall" ... "it is the ace up Microsoft's sleeve"... But, inFAMOUS: Second Son for the PS4 is sitting pretty at the top of the charts as well, at number 6, with 145,645 pre-orders, only about 15,000 units behind Titanfall. So, while Titanfall is expected to move a lot of XB1 units, I believe that inFamous:SS will move a lot of PS4 units, as well. The fact that the XB1 is lagging behind the PS4 in both hardware and software sales has to be troubling to MS on many levels. If Titanfall is not the hit that everyone expects it to be (in terms of moving XB1 units), MS is going to be scrambling in 2014 and it most likely will never catch up to Sony's PS4.

You should also take pre-orders with a grain of salt also. They are not reliable predictors of sales.
harrisk954  +   396d ago

I would agree with you that pre-orders are not necessarily accurate predictors of sales, but they are predictors of interest in a particular IP. It means that a particular game is on a persons' radar, even if it is only due to hype and the pre-order never leads to an actual sale. But, a certain percentage (I don't know the number) of pre-orders do lead to actual sales to the end user. Game companies also use pre-orders to give them indicators of how many copies of a particular they need to ship to retailers.

Last I checked, Xbox1,PS4 and even the WiiU are all winning. One thing will be interesting to see and that will be how the XbX1 will be received globally. In the US they will be OK. On a side note, I just left BestBuy and this week it's all about the Xbox1. Plenty in stock, looks great on display and everyone's happy. I would've purchased one if it not for the $500 price tag. That being said, I am holding out for the PS4. A customer service person said they expect next week to be a big PS4 week and that this sort of thing has been going on since the days of Ps2 and Xbox. While she can't guarantee a Ps4 week next week she did say that both companies like to volley back and forth week to week. Another side note is I the PS4 section there are signs up saying "ask us about our Xbox1 inventory" Does MS pay to have those put up in the Playstation section? Serious question.... Anyhow the global sales charts are meaningless at this point. Because according to the last report both systems are moving at a biblical rate and that means we all win in the end. To bad MS didn't want to sell xbx1 without that camera for $100 cheaper because I would've bought one today.

i don't preorder neither do my friends but we all plan on picking up titanfall, pre-orders don't really mean much this early.

So vgchartz is a reliable website only when they post good numbers for Microsoft lol

But if vgchartz shows good numbers to Sony suddenly the website is trash.
