So, about 4,000,000 Watchs Dogs and 1,200,000 Mario Kart 8. Predictions were real finally and vgchartz confirms that.

Watchdogs on ps4 out sold x1, 360 and ps3 combined , nice.
Gamingcapacity  +   86d ago
1.8M sold on PS4 first week?? So according to VGC the PS4 had almost 50% of the 4M confirmed sold by Ubisoft.

The X1 also had a "Watchdog" boost but outsold by the PS4 4:1. Crazy numbers for Sony right now.
Gamingcapacity  +   86d ago
Also VGC figures so could be way off.
Codey47  +   86d ago
For arguments sake lets knock off 500k for the PS4 version and leave the Xbox One version as it is.

Still leaves a 500k advantage.

I know. The PS4 version, according to VGC, sold 1M more worldwide than the X1 versions. That's insane.
Bigpappy  +   86d ago
The game has a special deal with PS4. It is marketed to be better played there by Sony and Ubisoft. If also doesn't hurt that it is a GTA type game, and PS is where most of those fans play.

This reminds me of COD when it was Sold on 360 on a much larger scale than PS3. PS guys would say it is because Xbox only plays shooters.
Gamingcapacity  +   86d ago
COD only really sells a couple million more on Xbox over its life time. GTA IV sold about the same on each console while GTA V sold more on PS3 (about 14M to 17M).

What's happening here though is something more extreme. The PS4 sold over double of what was sold on the X1. If this trend continues we're looking at a 10M to 4M split. Plus Watchdogs pushed the PS4 up about 80k ww to 200k for the week while the X1 sold 50k. Thats a 4:1 split in sales.

If these figures are true then I think the X1 will need a lot more than the Kinectless (un)bundle.
SilentNegotiator  +   86d ago
Yeah, it had nothing to do with how many of the 360's best selling games were shooters compared to the Ps3 and Wii. /s

In b4 "bu but COD was best seller on Ps4, so that means there wasn't more variety of best selling ps4 games!"

PS4 version have sold a ton. For now, ~50% of all sales are the PS4 version in UK. PS4 hardware sales up 94% in UK.

PS4 (49%)
Xbox One (27%)
Xbox 360 (13%)
PS3 (9%)

Waiting for NPD results for US market.

Well, this time VGChartz numbers are OK.

Come on. This is only first week sales. When COD was hot the disparity was similar 360:ps3.

This it the only game performing in this manner and it is simply because the hype for this game is higher on PS4. Several reasons for that but mostly hype from Sony and the publisher themselves giving extras.
Gamingcapacity  +   86d ago
Not true. The average first week figures for all the Modern Warfares and Black Ops are about 4.5M on PS3 and about 5.5M for the 360.

This is just a rough average which is about 45%-55% split to 360.With watchdogs is about 65%-35% split to the PS4.

But the biggest reason it sold more on PS4 and pushed more PS4's is because it's cheaper than the X1. Simple as that really. And yes the Sony push would of helped a lot too.

Not in Japan. Success in one region can lead to success elsewhere.

Great numbers for Mario Kart. Playstation consoles seem to be the place to be for multiplats.
randomass171  +   86d ago
Good numbers all around indeed. Next comes E3.
Realplaya  +   86d ago
The two consoles finally got a game to play. If Watch dogs released on the WIi U at the same time can you imagine the sales.
SilentNegotiator  +   86d ago
An additional .2 million in sales?

Besides the fact that Wii U doesn't have great third party sales, it would have competed with the launch of Mario Kart 8 against the sort of people that were big enough of Nintendo fans to buy a Wii U.

Ubisoft has a lot of crap luck with that, don't they. They released Rayman on all consoles roughly in the same time frame as Wind Waker HD and GTAV. From what I remember Rayman Origins also came out during the release window of a pretty big franchise at the time. Just can't remember what.
SilentNegotiator  +   86d ago
Arguably its biggest game of the year and Wii U still couldn't topple the PS4 for a week, nor its well established IP outsell a new IP (granted, it wasn't out as long that week, but the first two days are usually the highest selling dates by a mile; also, yes, MK8 will have much longer legs).

That's pretty telling.

You are omitting a few important facts.

The Wii U has a smaller install base.
Watchogs was on the market longer. Mariokart 8 4 days compared to 6
Also there is a bigger selection on the Wii u Games wise than on the PS4.
SilentNegotiator  +   86d ago
For starters, my supposed second "omission" in your list is a blatant lie; I clearly mentioned that fact. Read more carefully.
-"granted, it wasn't out as long that week..."

Second, I didn't "omit" the first thing. It's telling because MK8 should have propelled Wii U sales by a LOT more. If ANYTHING was going to help Wii U play some serious catch up, it would have been Mario Kart 8; if not even MK can get Wii U at the top of the charts, there's a problem.

Lastly, what games are Wii U gamers buying instead? I see 1 Wii U game in the top 10 selling games, 2 Ps4 games. 2 Wii U games in the top 20, 4 Ps4. In the top 75 games, 8 Wii U, 9 Ps4. Funny, Ps4 gamers seem to be getting plenty of games and it's not stopping Ps4 from owning the leaderboards.

The PS4 version of Watchdogs outsold MK8 what part of this don't you understand? LOL ;)
randomass171  +   86d ago
@LOL_WUT Across four different consoles? I guarantee Mario Kart 8 will still be making numbers on Wii U long after Watch Dogs is old and replaced by another big PS4/XB1 game, or even its likely to be made sequel next year. And don't tell me it won't because history has shown that during each generation Nintendo games have staying power.
Theyellowflash30  +   86d ago
We all know Mario Kart will outsell Watch Dogs on the PS4 in the long run, and the most important thing is this..... Mario Kart is just a better game.

Watch Dogs was super hyped and didn't live up to it at all. Its not a bad game, but after 10 hours I had to put the game down. Its not very good.
sic_chops  +   86d ago
Watchdogs... Wow. I know I'm enjoying my copy.
