New Batman Pre-Orders PS4 vs Xbox One Are 4 to 1; Titanfall Helped Sell a Million Xbox Ones –Insider

Looks like the Batman fans are leaning more towards the PS4 version of the new Batman: Arkham Knight than towards the Xbox One version, as mentioned today by insider Pete "FamousMortimer" Dodd, that has a very good track record with the information provided by his sources. On the other hand, Titanfall seems to be definitely helping the sales of the Xbox One. (Batman: Arkham Knight, PS4, TitanFall, Xbox One)

Farmassy, those sound like some bitter words you have there. The posters above were just stating facts - PS4 has a higher sales and attach rate already this early in the gen, therefore it's no surprise to hear this news. Infamous: Second Son comes out soon too, so there's no short supply of PS4 games on the horizon.

Get over it, son.

I have more games than I actually have time for on my ps4. I don't know what ms provided rock you live under, but there's also at least a half dozen exclusives coming out that I'm excited for. You on the other hand, are justifying your $500 universal remote with a single game. If I have to wait a little longer than you, so be it. Have fun playing the same game for the next 9 months. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure it'll be fun, but if that's all I had to look forward to I'd be mad too. And maybe the pre-order numbers are higher for ps4 because it has a larger install base. Both consoles have great looking games on the way, the difference is I'm excited about more than just a single release.
Eonjay  +   699d ago
Every game is selling better on the PS4. Check out Amazon. The thing I tried to explain a while ago was that its Multiplatforms that win the console war because they outnumber exclusive 10 to 1. Even if Titanfall sells a lot (and it will), PS4 still wins if everyone goes to it for their multiplatform needs. '

Edit: Thats why the power perception and price point are so important.

@farmassy, batman games have typically sold better on playstation anyway. Given the ps4's install base it makes sense.
AngelicIceDiamond  +   699d ago
This is great news. Batman movies are made by Sony. So its only logical to play Batman on PS4 lol.

With that being said, I guess we're gonna ignore Titanfall's supposed good news?

For months now people here were saying "Titanfall's not a system seller."

People were saying "consumers will never buy a console for 1 game for that price."

So now that it potentially is, we're just gonna ignore what every fanboy was saying here?

Fanboy keyboard warriors were wrong. And they were dreadfully, laughably wrong at that.

Sad, very sad. If true then congrats to Respawn and MS the game should be loads of fun.

as a reply angel...we are happy for tf awsome that they saw a boost in sales when a major annoucment was made...but what does it mean when they say the tf bundle didnt sell as well as projected? why not buy th x1 with tf free bundle if its a system seller?
im not downing tf at all but when the play with word lik this to hype the game, not to mention not a single word or screen shot for the 360 its weird ya know. tf is looking to be a forced system sellr because of the free bundle...what sad is thats isnt selling as projected.
Kribwalker  +   699d ago
@thereaaperson the attach rate on Xbox one is greater then the attach rate on ps4. Been confirmed by multiple news outlets. 2.6-2.1
And when a game was announce like 4 days ago, the preorder numbers don't even matter yet. It could be preordered 1000-250. That means nothing right now.
These insiders just want their name in the news by making crap up
GTgamer  +   699d ago
So your gonna judge the attach rate of a Console that sold 6 millions+ against a console that sold 3million+ you do know that's not logical right-_- clearly your overlooking that margin of error.

Kribwalker  +   699d ago
I'm not the one that stated the PS4 attach rate was better then the xbox one attach rate, I was just proving him wrong on that. It's a proven fact through the last generation and this one that Xbox gamers tend to buy more games per console then playstation gamers. And the attach rate is just that, it's the amount of games sold per console. There is not illogical to what I'm stating. Wikipedia that if you'd like, it will explain that it doesn't matter how many consoles were sold, but how many games per console. We compare the Wii to PS3 to Xbox 360 numbers. The wii sold way more consoles. Their attach rate is also terrible. That came down to too much shovelware and crap games. Look at japan, without the pack in Knack, the ps4 attach rate is barely under 1. That isn't even figured into the attach rate that I posted. You can disagree all you want, but facts are facts. And the facts are that Xbox owners buy more games for their consoles. There may be less consoles sold, so software totals are less, but the averages are higher
Shane Kim  +   699d ago
Kirb you cant talk about attach rates in Japan allready. It got released 2 weeks ago, come on. In that case, I can bring up Xone attach rate in Japan wich is non existant.

In all other territories, PS4 has better attach rates and better overall sales. However, as I have stated before, I'm in this for the games, I frankly dont give a damn about who sells what.

Wow. This isn't really a surprise. I talked with a gamestop employee Saturday and he informed me that the PS4 as outselling the xbone 4:1. He told me that they didn't have any PS4's in stock and didn't expect any until April. He also told me that he had tons of xbone's in stock. The PS4 is selling out as soon as retailers get stock and the xbone is just setting on shelves. Apparently people are beginning to realize that paying 100.00 more for a less capable machine isn't very smart.

Kavorklestein  +   699d ago
I guess that's proof that sony guys buy and commit to video games, consoles, before they really know the whole story of , well anything. They throw money at stuff that looks cool then bash other's for having their own opinions of what looks cool.... Even tho THEY have a track record of being swayed by hype much harder and more often than xbox fans, and often their loyalty looks more unsubstantiated than anyone else's... No wonder they think Titanfall will fail, no wonder they are Assuming that the Order:1886 will dominate everything. I have a brother who worked at gamestop when ps2 and 3 came out, and he said preorders are typically higher for playstations... so for as long as gamestop has existed, more sony fans pre-order more copies of ______________ what ever it may be, in the first place, and this atricle is supposed to be news?
millerj2740  +   699d ago
@ Kavork

Your entire comment it's backwards. PlayStation has always had more preorders because people know exactly what to expect from Sony. Ps2 had a better library of games than xbox and ps3 had a larger and better OVERALL library than the 360, with more variety. The Kinect and the cloud are both "cool" concepts that you bought into, but what are they doing for you now? Let's also look at the console support over the last 3-4 years... Sony has supported the ps3 all the way through its lifecycle, but where was Microsoft?

Of course Sony it's a moneymaking business just as much as Microsoft, but respect and loyalty go both ways... stronger hardware, lower cost, optional peripherals, and better online subscription value... I'd say my decision was more than substantiated. Can you really say the same AT THIS POINT IN TIME? Honestly?
jollygoodchap8  +   699d ago
Oh please.

"but but but track record" didn't matter for Order 1886...You guys praised it to high heaven over a trailer and some screenshots.

Kidmyst  +   699d ago
Pre-ordering a game doesn't mean you have to buy. I put in pre-orders to help track and remember what games are on my watch list. I lose track sometimes with all the games coming out when and on what system so checking my Amazon orders helps me keep track. Plus prioritize if multiple titles come out around the same time, which to cancel and buy later.
Kavorklestein  +   698d ago
dude, I didn't buy into the cloud, I just saw it as an option, whether or not it pans out, time will tell. I like the MS exclusives, Plain and simple. You are silly tho, ps1, 2, and 3, were all over-priced.
You can feel good about having a cheaper and more powerful system for the first time in four console releases, don't act like you've had it all along. MS fans are finally getting value shafted by a small margin, and you act like we should be upset. MS fans have a better system in the 360 even when there weren't many exclusives during 2010/2012 You guys weren't really even bragging about your consoles UNTIL The last of Us Came out. WOW.. so glad you FINALLY got a good exclusive after the console's lifespan is basically over... Now you guys feel like it was all worth it don't you? And on Multiplats, even still, no matter how minuscule the graphiccal benefit, 360 almost always wins, even tho you guys claim the 360 is less powerful.. Lowest common denominator my ass.. You so keep saying you know what to expect, but how is that true when you haven't even been paying attention to inferior graphics for three console lifespans.
NOW you guys get to be all proud and think highly of yourselves for the first time in ever? HA. Be glad MS fumbled their console, so you guys can finally know what it feels like to have the best console.

PS3 has it's perks, 360 has it's perks, PS4 has it's perks, and Xb1 has it's perks, and just because more ps4's have sold, doesn't really mean anybody is struggling, (well, besides nintendo)

Just stop think pre-orders mean anything... SALES do... but not PRE- Sales.
And sales, don't really mean anything in the long run, because look at Nintendo who wiped the floor in sales with the Wii. Just to flop with the Wii U. Sony HAD to be the best this time around, or else, by now, they probably would have gone bankrupt.

mkis007  +   699d ago
The quote is referencing the estimated total of the 3 million+ xbox 1 consoles sold because of titanfall...therefore remove titanfall from xbox one next gen exclusivity and they would say a million less xbox ones would have been sold up to this point (2 million +)
ITPython  +   699d ago
The 4:1 ratio for Batman preorders makes sense, although how they came up with the "Titanfall helped sell 1 million XB1's" is stretching the imagination a bit. As they literally just counted sales after major TF announcements and assumed those sales were due to that game specifically.

And I quote:

"This is based off of things like upticks in sales after every major Titanfall announcements."

Which obviously is extremely weak data. Now if they counted XB1 sales that included a TF pre-order in the same order, or TF bundles, then yeah that would be solid data. But the method they chose, well... that is pretty much the definition of reaching for straws.

Using that same method Sony could probably say that Infamous SS helped sell 4 million PS4's. And while that is probably true, it isn't a good way to go about it.

zeuanimals  +   699d ago

You know the PS4's sales would be higher if it wasn't supply constrained, right? The PS4 might be available in more areas but even in countries where both consoles are available, the PS4 outsells the X1 from 2:1 up to 4:1 and possibly 5:1.

So if the PS4 was only available in the same 13 markets as the X1, it would have much less supply issues and they'd be able too fill demand much easier. The number of systems sold for each market would be even greater than it is right now. Insead of 2:1 in the UK it could be 4:1, and that could apply to every other market as well.
classic19  +   699d ago
lol they mean TF help sell a mill x1's sense the x1 launched in ppl saw gameplay of it. they are not saying that TF help sell a million x1's in the month of march...... yup. beside i think the infamous SS package deal is selling more, ms last uptake was i believe 2 months ago in it was 3.9 million, so 1 mill in 2 months not bad at all..

So instead of 3 million plus it would be 2 million plus without titanfall.(read the article)

That is a good point. Xb1 isn't in as many countries. If they sold in the same countries the gap might be closer. Also its not like there are no ps4's sitting on shelfs. Not nearly as many xb1's but you can still find them on shelfs and ebay and craigs list. I stated b4 they had some in my brother in laws gamestop in ky sitting on the shelf and I got some disagrees. I got my ps4 killzone bundle on the 26th of feb and guess where it shipped from? A gamestop in ky. Lol. I'm not saying the xb1 would be in the lead for sales just slightly closer. They shot them selves in the foot at e3 so that helped sony as well. The next two years we will see more of a balance I think.

Highly doubt it, way the Ps4 is selling now an people that want to step into next gen already are actually waiting to get a Ps4 or have already pre-ordered one an are waiting on a list. An it seems in most "Urban areas" the Ps4 is no where to be found an One's are just sitting on the shelf collecting dust.

Out of all the Gamestops in my area, Two of them actually have Ps4's in stock an both clerks stated there only a few, An most said One's are in stock, even a couple of Day One editions floating around in Tampa,FL.

I say this because out of all the big midnight launches this past gen, Majority of the lines I stood with fellow 360 owners waiting for our new game. I live 5 minutes from USF, majority of the Gamestops in this area, biggest consumer is college kids.

Just don't get how anybody can still justify $500 for that. I will never pick a side I will just buy a Ps4 first, a buy a One, Once MS realizes millions of others including myself have no interest in a Kinect bundled with our console.

Just another broken promise to get you to buy into it, Blah Blah Blah we heard so much hype about the Kinect. The biggest One game this year, Titanfall doesn't use it in any way. Respawn even stated they had no use for it, thought about good/fun ways to implement it an found none.

Realize companies are all out to make money, that's the point of a business that is a given. Just don't get how you can stand beside a company that is like the modern day Hitler of the Game Industry. They tell you what you want, what you like, an how much its going to cost. Most consumers need to be spoon feed, guess that's why MS is still around.

Some of you guys should read the article. It hasn't just had a 1 million spike. It says that during each Titanfall announcement spikes have occurred. So from the time dram sense it was announced it has moved 1 million. Meaning that if Titan fall didn't exist there would be 1 million less people buying xone. You guys should read the article

DanteVFenris666  +   699d ago
Okay then try to understand the article. It talks about how they haven't met expectations for the bundle. It clearly says that previous announcements of Titan fall have caused spikes. It's those spikes that they have included in that 1 million. Not just bam all of a sudden xone is at 5 million. That's not what it is saying. Your right in asking "how would they know" because guess what they don't. It's an estimation based on spikes from previous Titan fall and current news. I'm also quite curious why we haven't seem reviews for the game when it's launch is a few days away.

@DanteVFenris666, it is nice to see someone read and understand the article , other people think it sold or is selling a million units cause of its launch. x1 is at 3.6 million with the titanfall announcements to date , meaning the million is in there . there will not be a million more at titan launch or at the end of march. the titanfall x1 preorder bundles are not at ms expectations . and are being beat by ps4 system only , and by infamous ps4 bundles . people plz stop jumping the gun and read plz.

The PS4 resonates with core gamers and the "early adopter" mindset. More power equals better games allegedly? E3 will showcase who Sony and MSFT are targeting and it will upset a LOT of Xbox One early adopters sadly.

The Xbox One is not made primarily targeting core gaming audiences, its focus is on average Joe consumer and that will be further showcased by their second wave of games. They will be great games but family, female, children and casual friendly.

So while Sony showcase Uncharted, Microsoft show Kinectimals Match 3 that is a shared experience between smart glass, the TV and online via Xbox Live. And this is not a negative because the core gamer is a tiny portion of the potential audience playing games right now.

How do you know that early xb1 owners will be upset haven't there been hints of great things coming from microsoft at this years e3 but i guess you have inside info huh or just blindly making assumptions cleary because you prefer playstation
Radentangr  +   699d ago
I have a PS4 and truly wished I got an Xbox One at this point. Second Son is not interesting me and Titanfall, Plants Vs Zombies and Ryse do.

I think what Xbox is showing equals great things but I do not consider myself a core gamer anymore.

So going after Nintendo's demographic while still trying to cater to the hardcore gamer and multimedia enthusiasts?

We'll see if it pays off in the long run.

They want the living room. Core gamers are in the man cave or bedroom mostly. So expect family and couch centric games.

Highly doubt it sold a million X1s maybe 500,000. Deff not one one million.

Nevermind, read it wrong, It says titanfall has helped sell one million consoles so far as in the announcements for the game. Okay, that sounds more believable.

So people believe that batman preorder is 4 to 1 in favor of Ps4 and think that the 1 millions generated sales of Xb1 is fake even though both of these rumors were spread by the same dude!? Lol, so which way is it, people?

Imalwaysright  +   699d ago
Unless this guy made a survey and asked everyone who has bought the X1, it is IMPOSSIBLE to know how many of them were sold because of Titanfall. As for the Batman rumour, it is much more believable because there are numerous reports of game "x" having "y" pre-orders. Mind you, I'm not saying that is real, just more believable but I can't help to think that the Titanfall rumour destroys this guy's credibility.

People are disputing what others are using this article to say, which is that Titanfall is giving the X1 an instant one million unit boost. The article is saying that one million happened over time with each new announcement. That's a few boosts totalling one million over time. They are using this information to jump up the X1 totals when the boost has already occurred.
DanielGearSolid  +   699d ago
Can you read?

They're not disputing the boost Titanfall has given the x1...

They're disputing the incorrect thought process, likely from ppl who haven't read the article.

The insider says the Titanfall announcements and reveals so far, have helped sell 1mil of the 3-4 mil that have already been sold

Ppl who didn't read are assuming, there will be a 1mil unit sales spike on launch day

Batman always sold more on Playstation and with a current install base of the PS4 nearly 1.6 times that of the One this news should of shocked no one.

Titanfall will sell a million copies but not a million consoles.
Geekman  +   699d ago
After that Watch Dogs downgrade I expect PS4 versions to sell the best for that game as well.
urwifeminder  +   699d ago
No surprise a game with no online doing better on the single player console wow , great stuff Titanfall got a feeling it will move a lot more.
DigitalRaptor  +   699d ago
"the single player console"

Oh right, you mean the console that actually has more online multiplayer games?

Sure, dude. Sure... Keep rocking that ignorance we know and love.

Not bitter at all own the others on pc got so cheap will do the same for this maybe $5 steam sale , since when does posting on this site need to make sense I love you.

If I didn't have one already, I'd get a PS4 for Arkham Knight. Don't usually do that for third parties.

It's funny how people are downplaying the preorder distribution among the PS4 and xbone. Why wouldn't people be excited. Arkham Asylum and Arkham City are stellar games that have critical and commercial acclaim.

I'll be picking it up over watch dogs.
Tedakin  +   699d ago
If it's true that Titanfall has already single handedly moved 1 million xbones, then that's just sick.

Tedakin  +   699d ago
That's how I was. I don't think I ever played a single game on PSN. But Sony was my MGS, Devil May Cry, Silent Hill box.
parentsbasement  +   699d ago
Uncharted and Kratos for me , only online on PSN was LBP (1st one , lost interest on the second one) and no matter how hard I try , I just cant like works out good here, the Xbox's (one and 360) are down in the rec room so if the boy has some friends over , I keep them down there and I have the PS4 in the living room for me to play.....
GenericNameHere  +   699d ago
Ohh!! 1M eh? If at least 500K is from the US, then I'll have another correct prediction! KHIII at E3 2013, No The Last Guardian at TGS 2013 (and even at E3 2014).

Maybe I'll create my own Pach-Attack videos! Can't wait until E3 gets closer and I'll get another chance at predicting stuff.

Edit: Forgot to say congrats, MS!! (still can't wait until Titanfall hype dies down though)

So there saying about the X1. At launch they sold 2 million to the hardcore Xbots. Then on top of that Titanfall has moved 1 million. That leaves 1 more million to make the 4 million sold. Wow the X1 needs some good news. In 4 weeks the Titanfall boost will have past. What does Microsoft have that can sell the X1 then?
Tedakin  +   699d ago
Wait... the Xbox is nearing 4 million before Titanfall. It sold 3 million as of Dec 31. If Titanfall moved, or does move, a million in March, they're up to 4.5-5.0 or so I think.

This is what some guys that may or may not work in marketing says as reported in The article......

"Marketing guys project that Titanfall has already helped sell around 1 million Xbox Ones. This is based off of things like upticks in sales after every major Titanfall announcements. They don’t know if it will move 200k more at this point. The titanfall bundle is selling less than Microsoft projected (but they are still hopeful for a big swing come tuesday)".

It's reported that the X1 has sold around 4 million but that could also be the numbers of shipped units to retailers and not units sold. So who knows.
I doubt that 1 million people have purchased the X1 because of Titanfall at least not yet. Maybe at the end of the year they can look back and say that the game moved a million. If of the 4 million reported sold 1 million is due to Titanlfall and 2 million at launch week then that's just a bad sign for Microsoft. IMO this is why I don't think TF has moved many consoles to this point. The Titanfall bundles and deals keep getting sweeter as each week passes and that's a sign their having trouble selling the X1. If the X1 was hot and selling well their would be no deals at all. The next 2 weeks will be fun to watch.

Im crazy for april when march numbers are revealed and people see that Titanfall didn't change the xbone position against the PS4. Titanfall will be a good game but is not the savior that many are hoping for.

Also, Infamous SS will also sell like crazy so any bump in sales Microsoft get will be neutralized by Infamous.
DJ  +   699d ago
Check this out, the hardware sales for PS4 vs XBO are nearly 2:1.

By the time E3 rolls around, we may be looking at 8 or 9 million PS4s sold vs 4 or 5 million XBOs.

And you'll have what? Titanfall and a bunch of last-gen looking multiplats? Cool story.
jmac53  +   699d ago
There are going to be a lot of pissed off gamers buying a $500 console for Titanfall when they find out the 360 version will be very similar.
JohnS1313  +   699d ago
Not to mention the game most likely won't be that good anyway. A lot of hype.
AutoCad  +   699d ago
Most likely it wont be that good lol?

i played it everyday when the beta was out.
Its that good.
GW212  +   698d ago
I played the beta. It's cool I guess but it's not that great.

MS kids are trying to hype this so bad because, let's face it, they have nothing left.
