Watch Dogs More Successful Than Assassins Creed 3

Watch Dogs was always going to blow any opposition out of the way.

But just how emphatic was the launch of one of Ubisoft’s greatest new IP since the Origional Assassins Creed?

This weeks Uk Top 40 All formats chart has proved that if you want to release a game do it when you know its going to be a slow few weeks!

Wolfenstein The New Order has been dethroned by the inevitable.

But the BIG NEWS is that already Watch Dogs has topped Assassins Creed III, Ubisoft’s most successful game ever!

People are starving for new experiences, new It's, people are getting tired of the extensive rehashing of old ideas. Yeah I'm looking at you Call of Duty. I hope we see a continuation of innovative ideas,games, and pproducts in general.

ac3 was trash so....cool i guess.

RuleNumber51234d ago

Yep, it's a no brainer really. Companies launching games on Oct. 7th should take note. That date so far has:

-Driveclub
-Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor
-Alien: Isolation
-Dragon Age: Inquisition
-NBA 2K15

Figure it out, it's not rocket science. The fact that those 5 games are launching on the same day is a joke. Those games are going to cannibalize themselves, even if they are all 5/5's. Oh and Skylanders launches Oct. 5th. Guess they don't own a calendar.

Well that's prep for the holiday season. There will be more people buying games then...

RuleNumber51234d ago

True, very true! But enough for 5 games on one day to sell enough and all be successful? Hard to believe, even if all 5 games receive perfect scores across the board. For each game's sake tho, I really hope they all sell.

bixxel1234d ago

Believe it or not.I told my classmate today about WD sales records.And 7 guys instantly decided to buy the game that day.I'm helping increase sales!! LOL.

DaleCooper1234d ago

October is going to be an insane month for games. I knew Batman would get moved though, after seeing WB Interactive's own Shadow of Mordor game launching in the same month. WB ain't that crazy!

Anyway, all the games coming on October 7th look to be pretty great. I can only get one though, not sure what it will be!

styferion1234d ago

I think that's one of the reason why Arkham Knight and The Witcher 3 got delayed. Certainly the sales will suffer compared to launching it without competition, especially single-player games where a group of friends can just buy different games each and lend it to one another.

Kribwalker1234d ago

Big sales by watchdogs, but that's to be expected, I'm more surprised to see forza 5 higher on the chart then infamous 2nd. And that titanfall is still in the top 10 in it's third month

SpecialK1234d ago

If releasing a game on that date was going to cannibalize their sales, they'd all be moving dates. Its happened before.

These people are spending up to millions on marketing and figuring out when the best release window is. I'm guessing they figured that October is worth the competition.

bixxel1234d ago

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor will be cool I suppose.

Watch dogs is way better than Assassin's Creed 3!!!

Are_The_MaDNess1234d ago

am i the only one that liked AC3 over AC4? and cant stand Watchdogs at all? feel one sided on this one.

LAWSON721234d ago

Watch Dogs judging from what I played is nothing special, as for AC3 over AC4 yes you are the only one lol. I was very let down by AC3

Are_The_MaDNess1234d ago

i think its alot with the characters for me. pirates isnt as interesting to me as people you know from history classes and such. ofc the boatfair and such is better in the 4th game. other than that. not really. really loved the winter snow and hunting alot better in AC3

LAWSON721234d ago (Edited 1234d ago )

My big problem is that Conner was done poorly and these cool events were portrayed terribly. I agree though I thought the snow covered forest was pretty awesome at times

Matt6661234d ago

I also enjoyed AC 3 but I also enjoyed AC4 and I also enjoy watch dogs in fact when I come to think of it I enjoy most games by ubisoft

brich2331234d ago

I liked 3 over 4 and I like watchdogs, but all those games could have been better.

A Quote i found in a forum that i really liked. -->

"Yes because I was looking forward to this game for months and pre-ordered it and got excited about the screenshots and the delays, I spent $90 on this game and got invested so I can't be wrong this game has to be epic otherwise I'll feel bad and feel like I've wasted my money and basic consumer psychology compels me to try to make the best of it by ignoring everything that's wrong with it and playing up everything that's good about it."
