"Next-Gen Version Sold 2X More Than Old-Gen Version"

Hopefully publishers will take notice of this and start ditching cross gen games, start focusing entirely on next-gen.

I'm not a fan of Watch Dogs, but it is encouraging to see the sales tide turning to current gen, and also good to see that new IP can flourish.

Both positive traits, so hopefully the numbers will encourage other publishers to follow suit.

Lukas, you took the words right out of my mouth. This is good news. I still have my PS3 but only for its Bluray and DVD capabilities, not gaming. I tried playing a game on it the other day and I felt like I took a trip back in time. Next gen is so much more fluid in all aspects.

GarrusVakarian716d ago (Edited 716d ago )

Agreed. I was watching my friend play The Last of Us last night and, despite it still being an amazing game on PS3, it was immediately obvious that it was a last gen game. The image quality and framerate were just bad in comparison with games i have played on my PS4 and X1.

Like Volkama said, hopefully the higher sales of current gen titles in comparison to their last-gen counterparts will persuade publishers to follow other publishers who are focusing on current-gen only. They don't really have the "we cant ditch 80 million last-gen fanbase" excuse any more. Gamers are moving on, so should publishers.

Correction...
PS4 sold 2x more that Xbone
PS4 sold 2x more that PS3
Xbone sales equal to previous gen version

"This basically means that while the PC sold 10-12%, the PS4 and the Xbox One versions sold roughly 27.3% each (assuming that the sales between PS4 and Xbox One were equals) and the PS3 and X360 versions sold around 16.65 each (again assuming they sold equally)."

He may want to reconsider his math.
16.65 x 2 = 33.3 (360 + PS3)
27.3 x 2 = 54.6 (XO + PS4)
33.3 x 2 is not close to 54.6 (last-gen x 2)

Since no exact numbers are provided, I'd just go with 10% PC, 30% last-gen, 60% current-gen.

Gearbox being the prime example should be taking notes.

Interesting but is this partly because GTAV was not on new gen consoles I wonder?

Im still not 100% sure on this game I still think im going to wait and see what the WiiU version is like and then decide if I should grab it or not.

Good to see a new gen game outselling old gen games though as I would expect this xmas and on the Xbox one, WiiU and PS4 sales will start to grow fast as people move to next gen.

I bought the whole package, with DLCs. Played the game, 18hours completed, then got on with my life. I had no problems playing the game.

It was the online part i had problems with. Just would not let me play the online gaming missions and online games full stop.

Seriously disappointed with it though. It was way too easy to get the weapons, cars, and especially money. You could be a millionaire in an hour on this game.
