Latest Pre-Order Chart for the week ending February 22, 2014 in the USA.
TitanFall is looking good. Does anyone know if MS is offering a bundle with the physical disk? Just curious. If they aren't they should be just to give people the option.
Only 1 bundle and it includes a digital download.
Well I am glad for those that are getting the console and a free copy of TitanFall but it would have been nice to have had the choice. Makes no real difference to me as I have the console. I like the idea of digital downloads and have lots of them but I still prefer to have a physical copy of my AAA games. I would feel better about it if I could make a back up of the digital downloads or something. I know that once you have purchased it you can always download it again but it just doesn't feel right somehow. I guess it is just something that I will have to get used to. @doolin_dalton Yep, they are certainly doing well. We have to remember though that the 360 version does come out 2 weeks later though so that would affect 360 pre-orders.
The game is online only, so no point for a physical disk
Destiniy PS4 is holding up well when no release date has been fixed yet. Rearding infamous the pre-orders will boom in the next 3 weeks. strange they haven't shown the 360 version of the mecha game just yet, i can sense the scam since the 2 games are exactly similar. it's gonna be fun when the truth will be revealed.. and those who disagree remember this post well!
@abzdine Marked. And i hope you to just don't desapear, if the reality turns out to be the opposite
Looks like it could sell close to a mil at launch on X1 alone in the US. as it gets closer more people will dive in. Digital copies with be a huge part of that total.
I thought with the huge amount of hype it has gotten it would be well over 500,000 pre orders by now
Wow. It's still not even close to Destiny as far as pre-orders go. And Destiny does not even have a release date yet.
@ sckipt Don't forget Digital Downloading. I am a day one but I am DD the game. Almost all the people I know personally with an X1 are all DD unless their wives or spouses give them a disc as a gift. Luckily, my lady knows me well and gets me $60 in MS cash as a gift rather then the disc so I can just add it my account and buy games DD. It's going to be interesting to see how blockbuster games sell from disc based to DD based.
Only place TF will sell better is America cause we all know how much they love their guns. I predict infamous will outsell it everywhere else.
"Only place TF will sell better is America cause we all know how much they love their guns." And now we all know how much of a bigot you are.
Titanfall was well received in just about every territory it was demoed. It was even well received at TGS last year.
Right, because the USA is the only nation in history riddled with war and violence. Do you even hear yourself when you speak, or were you in such a rush to type a 'good one', that you completely missed the part where you sounded like a jagoff?
How preorders for Titanfall ( Xbone ) can be good? There is over 2 mil. Xbone's in the US and only 300k+ preorders for Titanfall after beta??? Besides that, when beta was active, there was only 250k preorders for TF. Not so good. Only 2 weeks remainig.
That is more preorders than almost all launch games for both consoles ... and almost everyone bought at least one launch game .... so?
Its still more than any other preorder, but it should also be noted that there are more PS4 "must haves" which means people might decide to preorder one game over another. I was really interested to know exactly how TF might effect sales of xbone, and the numbers while healthy, dont seem to indicate that too many consoles will be moved by just this one game.
Don't forget that the pre-orders is only pertaining to physical copies in-store only. The XB1 bundle that was shot up the charts at Amazon and other retails is not included in the pre-orders and don't forget that since all games all available on digital format on launch day as well, a lot of people will get that instead instead of pre-ordering it. I know I am getting the digital copy myself. This game will be massive!!
There only 200k preorders for Infamous which is ps4s big game so I'd say its pretty good fit the machine that sold less.
@IRNMUNKEY How much less? 300k less ( for now ). Besides that, preorders for InFamous a pretty solid because Sony don't push marketing like MS for Titanfall.
This should put to rest the notion that Titanfall won't be a system seller because it's also available on 360 and PC. The Xbox One version is #1, with nearly 5X as many pre-orders as either the 360 or PC versions.
Its being packed in for free so I'm sure it will ship some. Its weird to because this is the week after the beta. So if some of these are for people who haven't bought the system... they should cancel and get the bundle ASAP. If you are getting it at launch and don't have a Xbox, there is no point in preordering the game when you can preorder the console and get both (and the game for free and Live for a month). Also don't forget there are 2 million people in the US that already own an Xbox One and I'm sure sure the majority of those preorders are from people who already own the system.
This is before that...
These numbers were taken before the announced bundle.
@nicksetzer1 @DJustinCHAIND Thats correct. (I was considering doolin_dalton's assertion that it will sell systems.) That the weird part I was referring to. Lets say you wanted to buy an Xbox One when this game releases so you preordered the game. Wouldn't you cancel that preorder and preorder the bundle instead? I would; it makes sense. But, these numbers were taken before the bundle announcement, which means that more than likely, it was boosted by people playing the beta on Xbox One. People who already have the system but loved the beta. Therefore while I'm sure the game will boost the Xbox One, its impossible to tell at this point by how much. If the bundles sell out everywhere, I predict a 150k boost. (I used the Fifa UK bundle as a barometer. The US would see a 75k boost alone at minimun up to 110k)
@Eonjay: All of what you said is true, but does not change a single point he made: "This should put to rest the notion that Titanfall won't be a system seller." Point made. Point undisputed. "The Xbox One version is #1, with nearly 5X as many pre-orders as either the 360 or PC versions." point made. point undisputed. You are just pointing out that the effect might not be as big as pre-orders suggest. That point is well made an also undisputable.
@Bigpappy I wasn't disputing anything, I was just thinking out loud lol. But yeah, I wanted to point out that its super hard to guess how much the boost will be. And next weeks preorders will give us a better indication (because those preorders will include the bundles). Check back to see how accurate my prediction is :). I estimated Japan correctly so I want to see if I can go two for two lol. Oh yeah I also predict Titanfall to sell about 650k. I may be over but I think this is possible.
True but should EA be worried by the abysmal 360 numbers? PC is understandable since i don't think PC guys bother with pre ordering.
Nope. It does matter to EA if it sells more on X1 or 360. The low 360 numbers might be good news for M$ as that would mean some X1 sales
doolin_dalton can't say it won't sell systems but its available on pc and xbox360, meaning not everyone has to pre order to get one. Most of us actually don't pre order a lot of stuff also i have to believe on pc it will be pirated a lot that's why low numbers maybe
It's an online game, piracy won't be much of an issue.
Those numbers are for the game only, not the bundle.
This doesn't guarantee system seller, could be alot of ppl that already own x1s Not to say the game won't sell well
I've seen a couple of people say this about the preorders proving it's a system seller. That seems like odd logic to me, but we'll see.
Wow that weekly change for Titanfall is HUGE! Almost 50k preorders in a week.
Amazing what a successful outing of an open beta can do.
Open Beta plus it comes out this week. Super big shock.
Huh? It comes out in two weeks and these numbers are for last week.
What is surprising is despite how many more PS4s have been sold...how close the preorders are...and in the case of Thief (and possibly more further down the list...there are actually more for XB1 despite the lower resolution. Eonjay...true it's being packed for free with the new bundle that was announced yesterday...however this list is as of 22nd.
Not surprising at all... Look at the 360 vs ps3 preorder numbers for multiplats, despite x360 selling waaayyyy more consoles in the US the pre orders are pretty close
What about Destiny? Watch Dogs? Dying Light? Forgot to mention those games? Let's not forget Thief is well known for being on Xbox platforms...Where as the games I just listed are all new IP and ALL have more pre orders on PS4.
Holy s*** Titanfall is dominating that list.
Not as much as Watch Dogs though. That game and Destiny are going to be the ones to beat. Edit (for whoever disagrees): Watch Dog is over 609,000 preorders. Destiny is about 530,000 preorders. Titanfall is about 349,000 preorders. How can you disagree with that?
Did you just compare the Xbox One numbers (not counting PC and 360) to the accumulated numbers of Watch Dogs and Destiny across all platforms? Because if so.... The Xbox One version of Titanfall is beating the PS4 version of Destiny, The Xbone version of Destiny and all the single versions of Watch Dogs. How can you disagree with that? It's fact.
@rawfodog yes but you are combining preorders from all consoles and titanfall its on XB1 only.
Actually Watchdoggs and Destiny have a lot more pre-orders than that. It's only showing what's on this list.
@ Tedakin, VforVideogames
Come on guys. I'm not making this up. Yes, I'm comparing all the platforms for each of the titles discussed. No matter how you cut it, its going to be better saleswise when a AAA title is offered over more platforms. Since it needs to be spelled out, here are the numbers. Obviously the numbers have changed since I first posted but here are the stats as of February 26 11AM EST:
X1 - 319,555
360 - 72,167
PC - 71,662
PS4 - 236,810
X1 - 206,410
360 - 97,684
PS4 - 204,551
X1 - 159,318
360 - 102,117
PS3 - 95,926
PC - 47,311
As you can clearly see, Watch Dogs is killing it followed by Destiny which was the original point of my post in response to the original poster. I am not attacking your favorite game or wishing ill upon it. I am not a fanboy even though I prefer Sony's offering over MS's. I am just pointing out the facts according to vgchartz (for what's that worth). I have no doubt that TF will do well when it launches. Enjoy the game.
Did you really count the PC as an equivalent in your model as the PS4? I don't know ANY PC owner who preorders games. Come on man.
You must not know the ones who preordered these games then. It's understandable :)
Did you read the article and look at the list yourself? I didn't just pull these numbers out of the air.
Destiny PS4 version is still killing it despite the game releasing in September. Usually its always no.1 but now its no.2.
titanfall has been on top of pre order list for weeks now
It's been 4 weeks. Destiny 240K already and the game releases in September...God damn it's going to be a huge game. Possibly the biggest new IP of all time.
Destiny has gotten a lot more coverage than TitanFall, though. It's just been the last couple of weeks where we have received an onslaught of Titanfall coverage, and the pre-orders are reflecting that.
I look at this chart regularly. Titanfall has been 1 for several weeks.
The Xbox One Titanfall orders went way up last week. Beta obviously.
Why no MGS Ground Zeroes tracking?
Can't wait for Destiny and The Order. I went to pre order Destiny today!
I wonder with global preorder who is ahead infamous or titanfall. Infamous does have a vastly larger market in europe
Titanfal better pull out some crazy miracle because is the only hope the xbone one has right now.
Really? So without Titanfall then Quantum Break, Halo 5, Gears of War, Sunset Overdrive means the X1 is doomed! Lol keep wishing. @Riderz Does it matter? So you're supporting the above post and are also saying software pre-orders indicates X1 is doomed and we should also ignore the future exclusives? Even though multiplatform games between the two are very close, and X1 has a high attach rate. Awesome logic.
Where are those games on this pre order list?
@Riders1337 I'm going to be honest, I don't pre-order games until I know the release date. A lot of people wait till there is an official release date.
Ok then, forget preorders. When do those other games release? The point is if something doesn't kick start XB1 sales soon, the gap will continue to grow at the fast rate it has been for the last month and a half or more. PS4 hit 3 million and 4 million sold in December, and is now around 6 million sold, while XB1 hit 3 million in the first part of January and is still hasn't hit 4 million. XB1 isn't "doomed yet", but at that rate it might be this time next year and you'd better believe MS is counting on TF to move systems soon. Some people are already bringing up the parallels with WiiU, and if the current trend continues that will keep happening more and more, so yes XB1 needs TF to sell it.
@MysticStrummer i do agree with you. Xbox One does need a game booster. We don't know jack shit about Quantum Break yet, but at e3 if it's mind blowing awesome I think that could help to. It would be a new exclusive for Xbox One that might interest people who still only have a 360. Same thing with Halo 5. There needs to be major announcements for those two titles. As much fun as Sunset Over Drive looks like well not really look because there isn't gameplay yet, I don't think that title will be a system seller.
"The point is if something doesn't kick start XB1 sales soon, the gap will continue to grow at the fast rate it has been for the last month" Nov and Dec were great for micro, 1 down month isn't even a trend but I think micro always planned for Titanfall to kick start sales after the holiday decline. I think with ps4 selling so fast the myth is X1 isn't selling well and yes in the UK where the X1 was $133 USD more expensive, this greatly contributed to the sales slump last month in the UK, micro did the right thing and reacted fast to spur sales but again ps4 selling fast, and covering alot more markets and X1 is still likely close to 4mil worldwide based on where they were at in Dec 2013. Even if micro doesn't sell as much as ps4 outside of US & UK markets common sense based on historic sales of ps3 vs 360 its obvious just releasing in 30 more markets like sony is available in will add substantial sales over time, because as of now you're talking 10k or so per market depending on which one to 0. http://www.computerandvideo... "The Xbox One was a great move for Microsoft, has been a huge success, and positively impacts share prices. The PS4 has sold more units, primarily because it's priced $100 less, released in more markets, and fueled by a more rabid fan base. Although Xbox buyers have been quieter, their actions have been far from depressing." http://www.fool.com/investi...
"1 down month isn't even a trend" PS4 has been more than doubling XB1 sales for nearly two months now.
Amost half a million preorders for a game with no release date. Destiny's gonna kill it.
all you sony only people screaming destiny, ummmmm xone fans get to play that AND titanfall. all the sony ponies could get in a circle, hold hands and sing a ballet about destiny, watchdogs, and we wouldn't hear you over titanfall. nice try though. keep reaching, but if you dont grab on to something soon you're going to fall on your arse.
THere are many games that Xbox offers that I wish I could play...but for each of those there are about 3 PS games that I absolutely love. Enjoy Titanfall. I'm sure many, many people will. But I'll take my constant feed of Sony exclusives over a handful of MS exclusives any day.
