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.

Game doing better on ps4. No surprise .

GTgamer1260d ago

I would go for the dark night console to if I was Batman.

thereapersson1260d ago (Edited 1260d ago )

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.

GTgamer1260d ago

@Farmassy
Is that why they are 6 million and Counting PS4's sold :/.

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.

Eonjay1260d ago (Edited 1260d 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.

curtis921260d ago

@farmassy, batman games have typically sold better on playstation anyway. Given the ps4's install base it makes sense.

AngelicIceDiamond1260d ago (Edited 1260d 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.

Kingthrash3601260d ago

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.

Kribwalker1260d 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 http://m.digitalspy.ca/gami...
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

GTgamer1260d ago (Edited 1260d ago )

@kribwalker
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.

USMC431260d ago

@angelice

Do your damn research. Batman films are NOT made/distributed by SONY. AT ALL.

They are produced by Legendary, distributed by Warner Bros.

geddesmond1260d ago

@Farmassy

Lol no games. You don't know anything about the PS4. Oh but wait after Titanfall how many games has the X1 got releasing this year lol exactly.

Kribwalker1260d 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 Kim1260d 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.

White-Knight1260d ago

PS4 has like almost double console sold, it's only natural.

Xsilver1260d ago

"And the facts are that Xbox owners buy more games for their consoles."

IS that why all Multiplaform games are selling better on PS4 :/ and at least PSOwners are buying their Console, SO take that so called thing you call a Fact and put it in Corner and don't Bring Up Japan PS4 just released their.

mewhy321260d ago (Edited 1260d ago )

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.

Derajcan21259d ago

honestly though, this is ps4's first big game coming to the system, so of course ps4 guys are excited for batman, as are xbox one guys, but at the moment titanfall is our biggest game, while batman is just our secondary game...

The game is literally an unknown at this point ... only an idiot would preorder a game with 0 information .... guess those stats do make sense then.

ThePope1260d ago (Edited 1260d ago )

Ha so funny.

Plus it's a game with no release date, and somehow people think pre order numbers matter!

curtis921260d ago

it's a pretty safe bet given the critical acclaim of the past Rocksteady Batman games. It's not like it's some shot in the dark.

saint_seya1260d ago

Nick so you got more than one preorder on the game alredy?

I really hope this new batman game is good, i got the other ones on pc and they were really fun, and decent graphics.

DanielGearSolid1260d ago

Unknown?

You really think NONE of the previous games in a series are a valid refrerence point to a sequel?

Eonjay1260d ago

Its about Batman fighting crime in Gotham and riding his Batmobile. There now go preorder it.

Unspoken1260d ago

Not only that, we don't even have the actual numbers of pre-orders. For all we know it could be 100:25, 40:10, or [email protected] 4:1.

Knee jerk fanboys, here we go again.

KwietStorm1260d ago

I have every game in the series. Rocksteady, specifically, can be trusted with the Batman franchise. Pre-ordering is not an iron clad contract. It actually costs nothing on Amazon. So if that makes me an idiot for knowing what I want, then what does that make you?

Kavorklestein1260d 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?

millerj27401260d 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?

jollygoodchap81260d 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.

Finally has some gameplay footage now...but still that was dumb as hell.
