I don't know why they decided to release Far Cry 4 a week away from AC Unity. Those two are going to eat into eachother's sales. November is going to be a busy month.

Different genres that can cater to different tastes but I agree with the seemingly logical assumption that perhaps a publisher would want to space out their product in order to even out earnings throughout a fiscal year.

It makes since for 1st party publisher to release their games late in the year to push console sales. And it makes sense for MAJOR games like CoD and GTA to release before Christmas. But I abolutely don't understand why 3rd party AAA games like The Crew release during the holidays with all the competition.

People can buy one of them in December when there's not much coming out or for Christmas for someone. Doesn't make any sense to miss Black Friday when you will get your Christmas sales regardless

Different games for different demographic. I'll take Far Cry 4 before I get near an Assassin's game. Not because I hate the game but just because it's not my cup of tea.

Pikminmaniac1453d ago

Far Cry 4 day one for me, and not getting Unity. I did like the franchise, but after brotherhood it went south. Not my cup of tea anymore.

Gives people the time to buy the other game as a Christmas present or the person can just buy it in December as there aren't any major releases that month.

I'm going to be getting both but I know a lot of people out there cannot afford to buy both. It doesn't help that GTA Remastered, Smash Bros, and Dragon Age Origins are all coming out in the same month. They probably would've been better off delaying Far Cry 4 to December. My wallet is not going to forgive me for November.

Jaqen_Hghar1454d ago

earlier the better. If you want it in December then you can buy it then. Not sure why people don't like a game coming out earlier and being down in price most likely (even if just a little) by the time they get around to buying it. A man wanted Smash earlier because he knew it was going to sell on BF regardless. Not sure why Nintendo doesn't want to give it the 2 bump sales from release and then as soon as that tapers off BF hits.

@reesespuffs
My wallet does as it's told.
Addendum: Xbone and 360 outhustled by the ps4...AND the ps3? Wow...strong work Sony. Respect.

2015 may be a good year as well if The Division performs well (fingers crossed).

Eldyraen1454d ago

Rainbow Six too and doubt that's anywhere near all they'll have going for them next year. Those two games though are both big contenders.

Rainbow Six coop has always been one of my favorites (old ghost recon too--ps2/Xbox days were a blast for Tom Clancy titles). Competitive was great too but coop was rock solid.

So PS4 outsold XB1, Xbox 360, Wii U, Wii, Vita, and 3DS COMBINED!

raWfodog1454d ago

I think he was referring to the 6-month numbers.

HeWhoWalks1454d ago

Ironic, given you failed to actually understand what he's saying.

OT: That machine is just a little monster!

uth111454d ago

It outsold all current gen combined (XB1, WII U, PC), not everything
