Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition sold over twice as many copies on PlayStation 4 than Xbox One during its first week on sale, according to figures released by Chart-Track.
Less games worth buying in the PS4. I"m keeping my money for Titanfall
Titanfall is the only game you guys will be buying.
Lol who made you the know it all, like you got a magic crystal ball on who is buying what? Fanboys jeez
Did I strike a nerve? I bet you didnt even consider infectedaztec's post a troll post.
CernaML - Yeh, on PC:) No reason to get 30FPS sub HD X1 version. PS4/PC best of both worlds:) AceBlazer13 - So all the great FREE TO PLAY don't count as good PS4 games in your eyes
DJMarty With DCUO, War Thunder, Resogun, Contrast, Don't Starve, Warframe and Blacklight I have yet to buy a single game for my PS4. I expect the first game i'll buy will be Diablo 3. I have held off getting it because I knew the PS4 would be the best one to get. And Outlast this month will keep me happy.
For some reason, the Xbox fanboys like to keep talking about how the PS4 has no games and it's getting pathetic. Trust me, once you pick up a PS4 and look at the online store, there's a lot to buy and enjoy till Infamous: SS, Drive Club, and PlanetSide 2 come out. That's 3 games coming out in a few months, Xbox One only has Titanfall and what else? Yea, that's what I thought... Then with those 3 titles and indie games coming out for the PS4, that's enough till E3 to see what else is in store. The PS4 gamer is set, so don't worry about that.
ha ha ha ha ha ha
HOORAY!! Titanfall will be our savior!! Keep falling back on Titanfall. It is the only game that XB1 fans keep talking about. Titanfall, a multiplayer-only game that I wouldn't be playing even if I owned an XB1. You enjoy Titanfall while PS4 owners will be playing Infamous: Second Son. We will see which sells more (on next gen consoles -- that means XB1 (Titanfall) vs. PS4 (I:SS), since Titanfall will also be released on XB360 and PC).
Don't forgot, Quantum Break, Sunset Overdrive, Halo 2 Anniversary, Forza Horizon, Fable Legends, Halo 5, Gears 4 and more ;)
@4ShotKing Come on man, did you not get a sense of de'ja vu when you listed those games!?
@ShotKing, cmon man, are you not sick of them titles? That's the same list of Xbox exclusives from last gen. I owned both the 360 and PS3 last gen but just a PS4 this gen. Titanfall isn't my thing and I can't see anything else on the horizon for X1 bar sequels that are past their sell by date. Three is the magic number for me when it comes to sequels, after that it feels pushed. I like Sony exclusives like GOW, Killzone and Uncharted but they should retire them, they have had their impact. Good thing is I know Sony will continue to make new AAA IP like the Last of Us, Order 1886, etc. Keeps the PS brand fresh.
Tbh they should have went with 900P for the whole gaming experience. Smh maybe they could have had 60fpsa atleast.
@4ShotKing Damn shame you had to mention the same franchise TWICE (Halo...). Twice the sales and twice the frame rate for PS4 Xbone fans! #dealwithit
So while every PS fanboy tells a Xbox fanboy that they play the same games over and over again, Xbox fanboys are playing a new IP in Titanfall while PS fanboys are playing the same game over and over again in Infamous Second Son. At least use your brains if your going to Troll.
While I do believe there's more to this than the fact that Sony has sold more systems, your reasoning is incorrect, there are plenty of games to play on the ps4. I think the reason it has sold more primarily is because more people who had ps3s skipped this game the first time around because sony had plenty of exclusives last year where as the 360 practically had none.
haha! hilarious, less games on ps4 the usual statement with zero evidence. I think what should be more worrying to the xbox camp is not whether one is a definitive edition regarding quality but what this also infers about sales overall. PS4 is leading in sales and may in fact be pulling away from the pack by now, so this software gap may get larger. 15 to 1 spain sales say hi. Japan is likely to be 10:1 to 100:1.... xbox needs a price cut, no other way to say it...
Sure, there are more PS4s sold
Sure that could be one of the deciding factors. I certainly agree with that to some degree of why this is the case, but like the one above me, the PS4 does not have two times the installed base....YET. I believe the slightly bigger deciding factor is the fact that the PS4 is the better definitive version out of the two.
Even though I have the 360 version too the PS4 version felt like breath of fresh air.
should be noted that the game most likely sold less than 30k (only sold 500 more copies than Fifa 14 and that was at 28.8k last week so unless Fifa had a great week it means TR sold less than 30k)... so that's what 21k to 9k more or less also the chart fails to keep track of digital sales so the gap could be more or less depending how much is digital sales the low sales are a very good thing since this price gouging is an absolute farce and square enix should suffer from it
I still dont see how releasing a game on another platform at the price it would normally be is price gouging. If a game comes out a few months early on one platform no one usually cares that it isnt discounted on the new platform, so why is this game different.
well since all of the other major publishers offered a digital upgrade if u already had it on the previous generation console and wanted the new shinier version, Square Enix's choice of forcing consumers to pay another 60 on top of the previous 60 just for slightly upgraded graphics, smoother frames and some kinect/touchpad implementations is a farce
@ jackanderson1985 The digital upgrade were for games that were released about a month apart, and even those had a deadline to the promo. Tomb Raider, on the other hand, came out a year ago. Now I'm not saying I agree or disagree with the $60 price tag, but your comparison hardly seems fair.
who says its for people that already bought it.
The people who likely threw yet another $60 dollars and repurchased a remake for higher frame rates are Sony owners, and its very likely considering the sales figures.
Xbots don't play anything but shooters just like their fellow Xbox brat Justin Beiber. I laughed when I found out he is one of them.
Tomb raider went for €12 on xbox live last year......last year they were trying to flog it off. They jack up the price and make one or two improvements and idiots fall over themselves for that 1080p. So many games I'd buy on the xb1 over tomb raider
Have you tried ryse and dr3? Enjoyed both. Just got my nephew crimson dragon and zoo tycoon. Those games arent as bad as i thought. They are alot of fun and He loves both,will be getting him his xbx one console in march but with the rumors of a price cut im tempted to wait till november.
"They jack up the price and make one or two improvements and idiots fall over themselves for that 1080p" Don Mattrick was right. Shoulda just stuck with the 360.
@cheetah No you didn't, it hurt your feelings. Which is why you commented on it. Don't worry, he's rich, he might buy a ps4 soon. You feel better? I own both. And so can he.... Lol
Hahaha, yeah. If that idiot starting drinking coke I would be ashamed to have something in common with him. Xbox live is full of Bieber clones. Spoiled little brats who cry when they don't get their own way. Have you got a Bieber cut Major? Is that why you jumped in to defend his honor?
Nah, actually I'm bald and I'm black, so nothing in common with Bieber except that I have an Xbox One. I didn't even know he preferred the X1 till YOU mentioned it. You must have some sort of crush on him since you know so much about his likes n dislikes. As far as being spoiled, nah, it's called having a good paying job. I work for the things I want. While your busy putting down consoles that you don't even own, I'm busy playing exclusives that both consoles offer. Stop hating. Start participating. Get a job.
Good for you mate, glad we have that sorted. But don't lie man, xbots don't have jobs. Mommy and Daddy buy the system for little shnookums for being a good boy. Anyone who actually earns a living through hard work wouldn't waste their money on that piece of overpriced junk. Bieber would have been given one for free because MS thought it would be good marketing to have such a fresh faced clean living gentleman like Justin walking around covering his face with copies of Halo Reach when he exits the police station. lol
cheetah you have a really weird thing for bieber
@cheetah So I take it your not going to get a job... @wsouaw87 I'm glad I ain't the only one who noticed.
I don't know about your situation but here in Australia we all have jobs, and we get paid the highest per capita income anywhere in the world. Seeing as though you have asked numerous times, I am permanently employed and manage a $50 million business FYI. I hope things are getting better in the states because you guys have no better friends than us Aussies. And yes, if I wanted to spend $500 on an xbox I could afford one. I hope that settles it for you.
they always follow their keen
Really? That many people re-bought a game they already beat a year ago for full price just because it was a little prettier? Really?
I imagine it's people who missed it the first time around. Last time I checked TR didn't have 100% attachment rate on the 360/PS3.
Wow. You're right. Seems so obvious now since I just realised Tombraider didn't sell 160 million copies.
Plus reading the article, it says that Tomb Raider sold 50% of it's copies on the 360 and 42% on PS3. So there are a more Playstation gamers that missed out. And don't say 160 million bought the game last gen, that's foolish. There will always be a gamer that hasn't played this game yet till later on when the price drops. I'm actually one of the people that hasn't played the game yet and picking it up on the PS4 when I can.
Perhaps many of them hadn't played it yet.
@Tedakin More people didn't buy Tomb Raider than did buy it last year. I don't know why you assume everyone is buying it twice.
Welcome to the age of NeoGAF, where graphics mean more than gameplay.
That made no sense...for many reasons actually and is very contradictory. Don't all the Xbox fanboys praise Ryse for it's graphics and not it's repetitive gameplay? I think it can go both ways so don't give that, "Xbox fanboys are angels with a halo, get it, get it? I said halo" bullshit I always see. And not every gamer out there bought Tomb Raider, unless there's 80+ million copies on PS3 and 360 each. We're in the age where there's people that make almost no sense at all...and you're one of them.
Oh so it was okay for X BOX fans to cheer about graphics on the 360 but when it comes to Playstation fans, it means nothing? You must have swallowed a gallon of hypocritical juice there.
Twice the FPS, twice the sales. :) LOL I'm just kidding. Its great that its selling on both systems and its normal that its selling more on the PS4 due to the PS4 being ahead by 1.2 million consoles.
No surprises here. 1) more ps4s sold 2) the original sold more on 360 3) the ps4 version was better No-brainer really.
the original sold more on PS3.. dont mix your fantasy with realty.
According on this article, The 360 version sold more that the ps3 version.... I have no 'fantasy'... Games sales numbers have no effect on me any way....
I guess framerate and resolution do matter
Stats like these are why Microsoft exclusives are going to be harder to obtain in the future. It was easier for publishers to sign exclusive deals when everyone thought the xbox was going to be the dominant player, but PS4 sales and stories like this are going to make publishers think twice now.
I think we can all agree the less influence and leverage MS has on this amazing, creative industry the better. We've all seen what happens when they think they can call the shots and make demands. It's good to know MS is going to have a very hard time blocking games coming to the PS4 this gen.
Very true. We're definitely going to see Microsoft at the very depths of their desperation this generation. Nothing, and I mean nothing they're willing to do to attempt to get ahead of the competition would surprise me.
This is terrible news----you just know MS is gonna come up with something like "Our 31% sold out faster in a shorter amount of time." or some other contrived nonsense and I've had my fill of their PR this week...
If this article is trying to insinuate that ps4 is better than xbox one , then to me, it's really not saying much
Bbb...but... The PS4 version is scoring a WHOLE, MASSIVE, INCREDIBLE 3% lower on Metacritic!!! How dare people buy an inferior version! /s
Just remember the few people on N4G claiming that maybe failed basic maths! They definitely know Fall about statistic's. PS4Fan_Tastic! is all I want to say about this. The proven better console on top once more!
In spite of more gamers buying/owning more PS4, I believe the news about XBox ONE's subtle yet still inferior frame rate caused them damage with less games to sell.
What I'm really interested in knowing is how Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition does overall, will it be worth Digital foundry's time in doing this version and will it be profitable? I'm also interested in how the Next Gen copies sell compared to it's original release.
You mean crystal dynamics or se right, because digital foundry is not a dev or a publisher they just analysis the difference between the 2 versions and publish the results. And it was united front games and some dev studio starting with a k or v that did the definitive editions. It's 7 mil install base vs a 160 million one(rough estimates), likely not anything to write home about, but i could see it selling semi decently at $39.
"But I don't want a game that I already got what being remade made" they say "wait its Tomb Raider, that makes it ok" they say, some people are just so hypocritical with things, further more its not the good Tomb raider, if anything they should make Tomb Raider 1-3 into HD, keeping the game play the same but update the graphics and sounds.
And yet people will continue to deny XBO is in no danger. If these statistics keep up how much market share could Sony potentially steal? Of course Microsoft say XBO is fine so it must be.
I think it's natural, the gamers get the better version of the game for the more powerful console. I would be surprised if it was otherwise.
I'm loving their pain and anguish, loving it!!!!! P.S.4 is the best next gen console and their is nothing they can do about it
The true Definitive Edition is on the PS4.
I'm worried this sold anything tbh. Such a waste of resources. Truly it's Tomb Raider: The Fraud Edition.
Exactly how is it a waste of resources, cleary the very idea offends you, don't buy it then. Developers have to get first hand experience making games for these systems somehow. What is a better idea dev experience on a 50+ million dollar title that could run into delays and be even more expensive or a cheap 1-2 million port that will not kill the dev if it doesn't sell. Remaking old ports regardless of whether they are released or not are likely how many developers gain experience with new console hardware.
This is how it felt when Ps3 players got the crappy port of Bayonetta.
