The action role-playing game from publisher Ubisoft and developer Ubisoft Quebec - Assassin's Creed Odyssey - sold 1,401,405 units first week at retail, according to VGChartz estimates.
“Breaking down the sales by platform, the game sold best on the PlayStation 4 with 1,015,572 units sold (72%), compared to 366,344 units sold on the Xbox One (26%) and 19,489 units on Windows PC (2%).” Yeesh only 26%? That’s so meager
what about the Switch :P ? (well it's technically Japan only but I would still be curious to know how it performed as a streaming service) those PC sales numbers are pretty terrible... nevermind the 366K Xbox One sales. But this is retail so it is probably physical sales only? Numbers are slightly down vs Assassin's Creed Origins (1.51 million in first week) but there might be a slight shift towards digital. http://www.vgchartz.com/art...
Barely any pc gamers buy retail, what is the point on buying a box with a code in it?
Well yeah, hardly anyone buys physical on PC. The vast majority of sales will be digital in Steam and Uplay and therefore aren't counted here.
Ps4 is outselling xboxone 3-1 so it makes sense looking at those numbers. What will be interesting is the RDR2 sales.
It's probably gonna be about the same ratio, especially since the game was marketed for PS4 and there are bundles as well.
@DarkZane, yea that is what I find funny. Sony paid and Microsoft got the superior version.
It's not 3:1, it's much closer to 2:1. Much.
of course a Fan boy had to make it about it about a console When the article was about total sales.
You know what else is meager? Your life must be because you have nothing better to do than constantly spew anti xbox garbage on n4g and I bet plenty of other sites as well. This article had nothing to do with your childish console war but you gotta go there don't ya
Very impressive indeed.
Just started this yesterday, and actually am enjoying it (I wasn't expecting to). The setting is beautiful, and the RPG elements are really keeping me hooked.
I love A.C.O this is may Game of the year, i have over 100 hours in the game still playing it. Must buy when it's $30. More ban for the $.
the game is amazing, with all the hate it got I expected it to be average but it's really good
A.C.O Way better then RDR 2 if you down vote on this you like ACO more then RDR 2.
Bwahahahaha! Sure pal. Keep convincing urself :').
Mmm thats down Origins I think.
It will be majority digital by the end of next year if it’s not already. Still, a couple million box copies sold isn’t too shabby.
That’s just one week bud. Box copies will definitely be around for at least one more gen of consoles if not longer.
Right I’m not saying they will be gone. Just that digital will take majority. The last time I heard it was a 50/50 split. That’s why I said that a couple million box copies was impressive. I assume that it sold just as much or more on the digital side. 3 to 4 million in a week is pretty damn good.
Looks at article: 19,489 units on Windows PC (2%) Looks at steamcharts Day 1 peak: 37,765
This is retail only numbers. Not digital.
