PS4 Leads The Sales For Almost Every EA Title; Peter Moore Gets Trolled Over TitanFall On Twitter

GearNuke: "PlayStation 4 not only nearly outsold the Xbox One 2:1 in hardware sales, it was also strong on the software front, according to January NPD.

Electronic Arts have released games on a variety of platforms, among them, PS4 took the lead in term of units sold on the platform for games like Battlefield 4, FIFA 14 and Madden NFL 25."

EA is definitely feeling stupid right about now.. lol.

Surely in hindsight they must be thinking the Titanfall deal was a bad business decision, unless the up front payoff was so huge, they dont even really need to worry about sales numbers to make money, kind of like the GTA4 DLC.

Still, even if thats the case, being on PS4 would have helped cement it as a power franchise for the whole generation. It will likely be anyway, but more platforms would have helped its cause.

The second part of your comment is the major here for EA. They have been calling out call of duty all this time and finally have a game that could beat call of duty then they take it away from the only console that would give them the numbers to beat call of duty. Stupid buisness call regardless. These numbers guarantee as equal or definitive edition on ps4

The only problem with this is that launching "Exclusive" Generally makes people think of that system first when they think of that game. Its odd but most people are likely to buy Mass Effect on X box systems while Metal Gear and Final Fantasy are still generally associated with Sony... unless you are as old as I am and mad at Nintendo who had Square shored up first.

miyamoto3812d ago

Hmn....Mass Effect comes to mind...

It's not really that great of a deal for ms either in my view. It's kind of desperation to pay for third party titles and hope for console sales. And it's not even working as of now. MS can pray that titanfall moves consoles but if it doesn't and lots of em, that's alot of money just burned

medman3812d ago (Edited 3812d ago )

If Mass Effect didn't turn out to be a powerhouse on PS3, Titanfall won't on ps4. Especially considering how many of Sony's first party devs will have hit the system with their exclusives by the time Titanfall 2 is ready for the limelight. By that point, the market will be saturated with many great games for ps4. Titanfall 2 will be an afterthought, especially without getting that foot in the door early on on Sony's machine when it could have gained some mindshare with little else available for direct competition at the moment.

Most everyone in the industry (including EA) thought the next Xbox was going to crush it until they actually announced the thing. EA was probably like sure we will take your money and we will have an exclusive on the lead console. Bad business decisions happen.

KwietStorm_BLM3812d ago

EA never thinks anything is a bad business decision.

If these sales trends continue MS is going to have to pay a lot more for even their exclusive dlc deals.

medman3812d ago

I smell xbox live gold price increase. They always soak the sheepish customers when the sh#t hits the fan.

HappyWithOneBubble3812d ago

Yep MS is wasting millions away on timed DLC instead of real full exclusive games. Gamers want games not timed DLC. PS4 is the better console and people have spoken with their dollars

deviouslight3812d ago

Watch all the spin articles come out for xbox in the next week about npd.

Rimeskeem3812d ago

And yet EA will not put Titanfall on PS4.

(sry did not want to scroll down)

die_fiend3812d ago

Titanfall doesn't look that exciting. Destiny will eclipse it. Especially on the graphics front. You'll see that Xbone exclusives look worse than ps4 multiplats

Sleepless3812d ago

Who cares about Titanfall? Its another generic FPS!….and we got PCs!

alexkoepp3812d ago

Buy titanfall, supporting Microsoft, no way around it. And titanfall is beast, slaughtering The Order and Infamous combined on N4G!

PraxxtorCruel3812d ago (Edited 3812d ago )

Exactly why I didn't get a PS4 at launch because all the games available on the PS4 have been available for a long time on PC. So for anyone that PC games, the PS4 wasn't an ideal launch console at all.

ITPython3812d ago

lol, noticed from the article that Titanfall on the 360 is being released a couple weeks after the XB1 release. Coincidence?

MS really wants people think it is an XB1 only game, don't they? Sure seems to me that they delayed its release on the 360 intentionally. That is just SAD. To say MS is grasping for straws in terms of XB1 sales, would be an understatement.

Magicite3812d ago

atm total worldwide weekly sales for PS4 are twice as of X1, while also PS3 sells almost double the X360.
EA is missing out a lot by not releasing any game on playstation.

TwistedMetal3812d ago

if you want a huge multiplayer experience its best to go with the ps4 because more people play on that system online. ps4 the online console of this new gen.
