GearNuke: "Thief is another multiplatform title that has huge success on the PS4 compared to the Xbox One. In its debut week in UK, it sold almost twice the number of copies on the PS4 compared to the Xbox One."
I'm glad it sold more on ps4 because that's the best version on consoles
I gave you a bubble for the fact that you posted without feeling the need to say ps4 is the future and the future is ps4!
Haha, thats awesome, bubble from me.
Lmaoooo I'm done hahahahaha nice one Kurisu Anyway I think milo plays will probably sell more on th ps4 anyway because of the better visuals and all that good stuff.
That was funny and anything that makes me laugh deserves a bubble!
I'm not trolling when I say this but I think it's due to the fact it being primarily a media box for TV, movies and overlaying existing satellite boxes around the home.
No, no. It's more to the fact that there are more PS4s in the UK and the game has been advertised on TV by Sony for the PS4.
The Xbox One sales numbers are lower because of one reason: Titanfall. After the success of the beta, there are people that would rather lay down their hard-earned cash for this, also considering replaybility. Nearly 1 week away people! Woo-hoo!
I'm inclined to agree with that, but it's the same on the PS4 as well. Second Son launches soon after Titanfall so owners could be saving money for that as well. I'm also still very busy with all my free PS4 games I get with PSN plus. I think the real explanation for thief's sales is a lot more simple though. More PS4s sold equals more software sales. It's not rocket science.
@KnightRobby Huh? That is possibly the worst spin I have seen on N4G in a long, long time.
And what about the many PS4 owners waiting to buy Infamous Second Son? Simply not true. More PS4 units plus better graphics for multi-platform games. Simple choice really...
Are we really arguing over this game. I got it this weekend and it's awful. The map system is awful, the not able to jump when you want to is terrible. The game is so repetitive and the weather is ALWAYS the same. blue/grey color scheme at night. I get it, it's about stealth, but come one, this is next gen. I'm trying to beat this as fast as possible to trade it in.
Certainly not a spin. Facts are not everyone can purchase multiple games. A lot of people right now are deciding on Thief (very average scores, no multiplayer) or Titanfall (winner of most E3 awards, excellent beta, etc). My assumptions are based on facts more than anything :) Also, no doubt Infamous Second Son looks gorgeous! I'm jealous of you PS4 owners.
Digital Foundry would disagree.
I'm not a rocket scientist, but it's pretty simple to figure out why the PS4 sold more copies then the X1.....their are more PS4 system owners. I'm pretty sure every multiplatform game is going to sell better on PS4 simply because the amount of people who own a PS4 is much greater then X1 owners. 5 million owners to 3 million owners.
More like 6 million to 3.4 million.
How many copies did plants vs zombies sell last week on Xbox one compared to ps4? It appeared at number 4 on that list
I'm more surprised that it outsold the Xbox360 and PS3 versions combined. The attach rate for PS4 and this game must be 1:1.
It's pretty crazy really. PS3 and 360 have a huuuugeeee install base compared to the PS4, yet the PS4 still manages to get almost 50% of sales. This shows just how great PS4 is doing in the UK and this is before big hitters like inFamous, The Order, Drive Club and third party games like Destiny.
@Tom- I see your point, but I am not really surprised, because the PS3 and 360 have a vast library of games. So a mediocre game at best is going to sell decently during cosnoles launch windows.
This trend will continue among multiplats. You know X1 owners dont buy games ;P.....lol j/k
Bubbles for the irony;)
Great,.. regardless what the media says,.. It is a really good Thief game.
It really is a great game. The reviewers that were harsh on the game are mostly people that don't understand what Thief is about and you can really see that when you read their reviews. It's not all of the media though. There were many dozens of reviewers that scored the game quite high (like 8s and 9s). All in all there were a lot more positive reviews than negative, yet some hatemongers want to latch onto the low scores as if they were the gospel truth and ignore the more numerous positive reviews.
I'm enjoying the game as well. I think it's a huge change from what people are use too, where stealth is the core of the game, rather than combat.
I want to like it but I find it so dull. I wish they gave more freedom to, you know, jump when you want to. It's very repetitive to me and I don't care for the story line. The travel through the map section is really annoying too. I can't stand the loading screens every three minutes when I move 20 yards through the market.
That's how I feel as well. I like a lot of things about it but just can't quite warm up to it as a whole. I may give it another go later on but as of now it is the first retail game on new consoles I have quit playing without beating it ;(
It's selling cause it's the only new game on next-gen consoles right now:)I say that and I'm a proud PS4 onwer. Not many interesting games to choose from on next-gen consoles right now, but they will come eventually.
Cool glad its doing well after so many mixed reviews being thrown about ! Looking forward to my copy getting here
Anyone have exact numbers on UK sales? In Europe in general PS4 has been outselling Xbox 5:1 for months.
That's awesome. And the PS4 is awesome. But Thief ain't my type of game. I'll wait until its on Plus. I know its gonna happen late this year or next year. Damage controlling Xbox fans are gonna say "That's only because PS4 has no games". Like they said when we found out Tomb Raider DE sold more on PS4. I think BF4 and Ghost sold more on the xbone tho, but that's not surprising seeing as Xbox gamers flock to FPS games. Not trying to start a war or hate on the Xbox. We'll see how this trend continues.
Any intelligent Xbox owner would know that almost every future multiplatform game is going to sell better on PS4. Not because PS4 doesn't have many exclusives, but because PS4 is outselling the X1 across the globe. Pretty simple math. Not about graphics or 1080p, it's about the PS4 has over 5 million owners where X1 barely has 3 million. More systems, more games sold on that system.
Barely has 3 million? I'd like to see your source on that. They were over 3 million a month ago. I'm not arguing that PS4 has sold more, but dont pull numbers out of your ass.
@molton Sorry I don't check sales numbers daily. Last time I read sales (maybe a month ago), PS4 was in the 5 million and X1 was barely at 3 million. My apologies for not doing thorough research prior to posting a comment. How could I make such a mistake when every post from users on here is 100% accurate. I didn't know it was that serious for you.
incorrect info is still incorrect, especiial when you have a condensending statement
^^^ Wow, some people have nothing better to do then nitpick. He says barely 3 million in sales, sorry its 3.6 million, wow, what a big deal. He said over 5 million, isn't 6 million technically greater than 5 million? I think he was getting at the fact that Thief and other multiplats will sell greater on PS4 because it has a 2:1 advantage so obviously more will sell on the console with more owners. Get a life man.
@venomarc1227 Still doesn't change that he's wrong...barely 3 million implies 2.8-2.9 leading others to belive it has not passed that marl. Your anger comes from your own frustration, maybe that's why you skipped out on an intelligent debate and result to insults. ..get a life? U are commenting on the same thread 2 days apart from me...Our lives are VERY Similar based on that alone..
The PS4 did outsell the XB1 by a wide margin in the UK which is why I'm not surprised that this happened.
Pvz came out for xbox the same day.
Between the 2 PvZ is more enjoyable to me. I'm not sure how much I'll be playing it once TF comes out though but it is still a keeper.
people are just clamouring for new games to play lol Thief will do, i like this style of play and may get it when cheaper
So what were the p v z numbers...that's what I'm playing currently
Good week for One in UK. Next will be even better
PS4 version sold better conclusion obvious
Of course it did. So will every multiplatform game ever released.
Thief is such a crap game, huge disappointment. PvzZ garden warfare is the real surprise game this week, great game it is a must buy if you dont have it yet.
But is it a good game? doesn't seem like it is on ANY platform. I guess this is a win for PS....
I'm over 10 hours in and I love it. Cynics be damned.
It's an average game. If you were around when the franchise was alive under LGS, you'd see that the game licence has been used fairly loosely on this release. The game is buggy, the AI is woeful, the gameplay repetitive, the atmosphere stifling, the plot is cliche and the game style ranges from tedium to ill placed action racing sequences. I've finished the game on Master level being a long term thief fan and will likely never play it again. It's average at best, especially if you're looking for the traditional thief experience. 6.5 / 10 from me.
What are some of the bugs? I've played about 12 hours and haven't run anything yet. Certainly not a masterpiece, but not the disaster people are making it out to be. 7.5/10 for me
EA's like "na, math is dumb... we're... we're good with what we sell on xb1... no need to think what it would've been like to double our sales on a PS4 version of Titanfall... we're.... we're happy."
cant that be said about ANY game that is exclusive? imagine if GTA, DMC, MGS, FF all stayed on one platform? c'mon
That's a shame because the game runs relatively poorly on ps4.
It's a mediocre take on the franchise at best. Who cares if it runs better on one platform over another?
The large majority of the Xbox fanbase is FPS shooter based. Thats why games like Thief sell more copies on the Playstation platforms than Xbox.
