Today Ubisoft announced its financial results for the third quarter of the fiscal year 2018-19. This translates to the period between Oct. 1 and Dec. 31.
So PC has taken in more sales percentage this year vs last. Interesting.
Yeah, up a whopping 9% from last year's Q3. Largest gains of any platform.
PC is a growing and thriving game platform. I really enjoyed For Honor, AC Origins and AC Odyssey on my PC. I think Ubisoft are among the best big publishers when it comes to balancing new IPs and new entries in established franchises.
Sounds like UbiSoft turned out a pretty solid performance. Unlike EA apparently.
"Dominates" seems a bit strong. PC is only 7 points behind and PS4 fell a good bit since the previous Q3.
Is amazing how a console has been dominating PC sales year after year. There is no spin for that.
Last year, PS4 certainly dominated not just PC Ubisoft sales but everything across the board. 44% is significant. That was a 19 point gap between PS4 and the next closest platform, Xbox One X. Now it is a 7 point gap as PS4 dropped 13 and PC rose 9. That is still a lead, but it is not dominating lead. The title of the article says "PS4 Dominates Ubisoft’s Sales in Q3". It doesn't say "year after year". If it were talking about the number of years or quarters PS4 led in Ubisoft sales then yes, domination would be appropriate.
The third party " business partnership" between Ubisoft and PS4 is consistently year by year doing great and very healthy.
Which is interesting since we see that Xbox had the AC Odyssey bundled and since they had The Division bundled I'd imagine Xbox will get Division 2 bundles again. Yet PS4 still comes out on top.
Microsoft have the marketing rights for the division 2. You can pre order Xbox One X and Xbox One S bundles. But you are correct in terms of sales for the game PS4 will come out on top like it does for every 3rd party game.
Of course PS4 comes out on top, there are more of them.
