The PlayStation 4 version of FIFA 15 outsold the Xbox One version by 100,000 units in the UK, according to a new report.
After all that effort Microsoft put into selling that game on their system and PS4 still managed 100k more. Lol
Well yeah, if they didn't make that effort, FIFA might have sold considerably less on the Xbox One. It's not always about outselling your competitors you know. Sometimes, you want to maximise sales on your platform regardless of everything else.
Well you can't put huge effort into every game like they did with FIFA. Still getting outsold by a considerable margin after having such a close partnership with EA, exclusive content, and many other factors isn't good news. I do understand your point but that reflects back to what I said above.
This is the worst comment I've ever read on here. I'm guessing you failed economics at school pretty badly. 'Sometimes businesses want to sell as much as possible'. Wow man...profound words
@die_fiend Ugh not you again. "'Sometimes businesses want to sell as much as possible'. Wow man...profound words" Well if you had any reading comprehension skills you would realise that I'm trying to make people realise that MS' end-game/intention with the Fifa promotion isn't merely to outsell the competition. Its to maximise sales. "This is the worst comment I've ever read on here" You clearly don't read your own comments.
Can't say I'm surprised when there's almost twice as many consoles? Logic would suggest that they should have achieved twice as many?
how does chart-track actually work? does it include bundles? digital sales? etc... w not really sure about these things. tbh if its an ms vs sony thing then ms consoles sold more. i also read that for destiny, ms consoles sold more. 51% :49% looks like people in uk are still not letting go of their 360. tbh i think they both are pulling pretty impressive numbers.
Last week Amazon made their own bundle with the PS4 and Fifa 15 which was 2 spots higher than the official Xbox One bundle on the bestsellers list. The Xbox bundle is £20 cheaper as well.
An insider tell us, what a load of crap
They're more ps4s in UK than Xbox ones...so that makes sense... Quality journalism right here folks.
when the wii was dominating last gen.....multiplatform games wasnt selling more on it.... so, wheres your god now eh? Quality rationalization right here folks.
That's because multiplatform games on Wii were 480p and had Gamecube graphics. Who would buy COD on Wii over Xbox 360 if they had a choice.
doesnt matter if i follow dudebro logic, btw im not saying that i dont agree with you.
Careful, that's logical.
Twice as many PS4's out there. Game sells more on PS4. #shocking #duh
Twice as many world wide but this is uk , the ps4 double sales there? I am not so sure. What would be the reason the ps4 beat the 360 version tho ?
@Tedakin Way more PS3s and 360s than PS4s, yet the PS4 outsold those versions. Where is your logic now?
what were the 360 version sales? I bet these were higher than both the next gens. Also aren't there more PS4's sold so this shouldn't be a surprise?
Ps4 was first I think then 360 then xbone. Check up top someone listed it. Ps4 was first.
Most games will outsell the Xbox One on PS4... More Gamers have a PS4 so it's just common sense...
But only 100,000 more. That's not good for Sony. !0m ps4's , 5m x1's. That great news for Microsoft.
Take your time and digest the following. This is talking about UK, not worldwide. There are more PS4s owned in UK, yes, but not twice as many. And MS had marketing rights (it being EA...) and even gave it away digitally with every Xbox sold... So...d'ya see why this is not such great news for MS now? Go ahead and hit that Helpful+ if so! ;^)
Looks like you hit your head pretty hard or something
hello, 10 million world wide not UK alone. besides there must be much more xbox 360 in the uk than ps4 and it still got outsold,so your logic is none
Those were uk sales only... So no not 10 mil vs 5mil
So microsofts consoles have sold more having a 52% market share... See we can all spin.
Well seeing as Playstation have sold more units this isnt suprising. I expected a bigger gap - especially seeing as Fifa is more associated with Playstation. As an owner of Xbox and PS, if I were to buy a Fifa game (which I wouldnt anymore) I would definately buy it on PS as Ive grown up with Fifa on PS, it just feels right.
"Fifa is more associated with Playstation" Not recently though, FIF14 and FIFA 15 have been heavily marketed for the Xbox ecosystem Pes is more for the playstation
Not anymore. Fifa 14 and 15 feature Legends on the Xbox One, these are not available on the Sony versions. Add in the fact the Xbox One has a partnership with EA for EA Access.
Oh really? I guess I'm living in the past. I still like indoor football on Fifa 98...and that sound track!
Good for Sony. I own an Xbox One (quite content with it) and its good to see Sony succeeding with the PS4. Both systems are good in their own right.
both pretty impressive numbers, presuming that ps4 is still on 1mil units sold in uk then thats an 30% of the user base. even more amazing percentage wise for xbone. was hoping people would also try out pes this season.
The problem is lot of people have gone Digital on x box 1, and PS4 probably. People are also now buying the game cheaper on the America store. Of course the PS4 will have better sales, but disks sales do not tell the whole story anymore. The Xbox 360 was on par with PS4 sales, with PS4 reportedly accounting for 32 per cent of total sales. Another sign people who own an 360 have not gone next gen yet. I think its safe to assume now more PS3 users have switched to next gen.
Of course the PS4 will have better sales, "but disks sales do not tell the whole story anymore." So people only buy digital on xboxone? LOLOLOLO! !!! "Another sign people who own an 360 have not gone next gen yet. I think its safe to assume now more PS3 users have switched to next gen." So 360 gamers who hasn't made the jump to "next-gen" yet will all switch to Xbone? ya that's not true at all. We all know alot of 360 users are ps4 users now :)
FIFA always dominated on PS consoles. Seeing it continue on PS4 is not a surprise.
Shame the game is exactly the same as Fifa 14. It's a lazy excuse for a follow up. Oh, best not forget to mention the game is currently broken. Don't believe me? go and check out the forums and what everyone is saying. The game isn't saving stats or any unlocks you make. I'll be selling this pure excuse of a game in a months time if it's not fixed.
Of course, XBOX ONE has EA Access. My entire friend list was playing the game earlier. Those numbers didn't count for that report.
it's actually kinda weak it was only 100,000 more I mean considering there twice as many ps out there
There's not twice as many ps4s in the UK buddy...
there still a majority more you douchebag 😱
How immature and childish are you? Lmao. You said there were twice as many. There's not. Calling me a douchebag for correcting makes YOU look like a douchebag
The new Call Of Duty is selling almost twice as much on Xbox One in America, is that as important, should it be classed as news? There are more people on PS4 so i'd expect AW to sell more but the fact that the Xbox has almost doubled PS4 would be classed as news. Doubt ut would be very popular though http://www.vgchartz.com/pre...
wow! and its even Microsoft who is advertising it in EU! atleast in DK :)
Obligatory damage control report considering the news regarding recent hardware sales. Larger install base, more sales. Bias agenda piece that takes news and presents it out of context.
shouldn't it though?
