It was announced today that PlayStation led the month for next generation sports games.
I predict the same fate for AC Unity and Advanced Warfare. Bundle all the games you want, Phil.
Not surprising. More consoles = more games sold
Not technically true. PS3 and Xbox360 are both pretty much equal in terms of console sales. Yet multiplatform games sold waaaay better on the Xbox360. Because the PS3 was to hard for most developers to develop on, most multiplatform games looked better on the 360. Now with the PS4 the tables turned because quality wise, the PS4 is way ahead of the Xbox One.
Doesn't matter. When it comes to business do you really think publishers will take that into consideration when deciding which platforms and what budget to use. We could spend 100 mil developing this game which we predict will make us 200 mil on PS4 and 100 mil on X1, or we could spend 50 mil on a PS4 version which would still make us 200 mil and we could save money on development costs and other costs, then release on X1 one year down the line. Numbers, profits and other stuff are just random made up to show my point but that is how big money maker publishers think. Just remember Activision was going to stop PS3 COD support if Sony didn't lower the PS3 price and that had something like 20 mil consoles sold compared to 360s 30 mil or around that. If MS keep letting the PS4 gap get bigger they might loose some good games and budgets to buy exclusives.
This is surprising to me just because of the Xbox NFL promotion. Goes to show how amazing the Ps4 is doing right now
@BiggerBoss Usually bundles don't count as games sold
"I predict the same fate for AC Unity and Advanced Warfare. Bundle all the games you want, Phil." Maybe for Unity but why would people buy COD for a console with a broken online system?
ya those numbers dont count games that are bundled or digital games so there nowhere near the real numbers
Bundles don't count, aswell, the fact that digital sales don't count, and you get a 10% discount on digital games bought with EA Access, which is how I bought madden personally. Until digital sales are counted, numbers will be skewed for all games.
All multiplats that released on PS4 and X1 at same day, sold better on PS4, all of them. I think only Plants vs Zombies GWF sold better on X1 and only because it was released many months before PS4. Heres link btw: http://www.listwar.com/rele...
Isn't Xbox One the official console of the NFL?
Guess not...lol, that's sad...I guess most people here in U.S are tired of MS and their BS;)
you know those number didnt count digital or the games that were bundlded with the console right... good try though
we really need to act as if these numbers also include digital copies
and? how is that gonna make any difference? both are selling the game on discs and digitally. the result will pretty much be the same.
so we're gonna ignore the fact that these games are all offered cheaper for people that buy it digital on xbox??.. but that doesn't make a difference .. you're dumb .. you're so dumb
yeah because the name calling will really help the Xbone sell more copies. sure...
This is just slaughter. Xbox One is the official console for NFL.
If I was planing on buying a new console and most of my friends with a next-gen console already had one particular brand, chances are I'd buy that same brand so I can play online with them regardless of prices. Xone had an amazing promotion where you essentially got the console for $280 (came with Madden and another free game of your choosing). I think it obvious that given how important online is in todays games, the biggest factor influencing potential purchasers are what their friends already have. No point in getting an amazingly priced xone bundle if you have to play alone or with strangers. Taking an early lead was never as important as it is this gen, unlike last gen, online play with friends is first and foremost in many gamers minds.
Wouldn't you hope so with double the install base? I would, no surprise here.
It's not double in the USA, where Madden does 99% of its sales. Nice try, though.
EA really bet on the wrong horse. Madden Xbone bundle didn't help. September is a bloodbath!
It wasnt a bet. Microsoft paid them to do so. Most of the time game studio's do not decide whether or not they release a bundle for a console. Thats the publishers job.
EA is a publisher
No it's a win for them. All 3rd party publishers would be smart to what EA did. Take as much money as you can get from Microsoft on exclusive content then cash in PS4 sales.
did this include digital numbers?
Dang!!!! after all those ads Ps4 still curb stomping!!! Man this thing is just beasting and feasting like a boss. I imagine what's gonna happen with that GTAV bundles.
Given the install bases a man doesn't think it's news unless the opposite happens. Even advertising can't stop a doubled install base especially for Fifa which is most popular in Europe where it's like 5:1 right now if a man remembers correctly.
So.....did you kill Pig?
This gen MS will achieve same numbers the original xbox had...just watch, what was it 25mil or 30mil?
It will do better than that. Its currently outselling 360 which sold 80,000,000 units, and that was with no competition in its first year and people buying replacement units for RRoD before the huge warranty kicked in. It isn't that the X1 is selling poorly, its that the PS4 is doing extremely well.
impossibru!!, buying the better version, millions of units more outhere, no way it can sell more! :D
Honestly, I'm just surprised NHL 15 managed to sell any copies.
A third article from Hardcore Gamer built from one single press e-mail. These guys are now on my blacklist.
isn't obvious the install base is larger.
EA. Crow. Eat up.
Really? How is this even news, Evry single multiplatform game sold more on PS4, Looks at FIFA 15 was marketed by microsoft but ended up selling more on PS4 than all the other platforms combined, PS4 is the lead platform Heck even the PS3 version alone sold more than Xbone and x360 versions combined, Playstation is the world's main game platform
Everything you just pointed out is why it's news. It's in very stark contrast from last generation and current generation marketing schemes.
Playstation is the main platform for home consoles. Handheld consoles on the other hand, the Ps Vita is not doing well against the 3DS. Not trying to be negative here. But people seem to forget the Ps Vita existin, and it is not exactly doing well.
If you wanted to add fuel to the fire you could have written "Fifa 15 on PS4 sells more then Fifa 15, Madden 15, and NHL 15 on Xbox One Combined". True statement.
Double the install base... It had better outsell X1 on every multiplatform game...
funny thing is Destiny on Xbox One outsold the ps4 version. Although this does not include bundled copies.
Sony turned down EA access it wasn't EA who turned down Sony. Good numbers for Sony though.
You are right, dont know why you got disagrees oh.... one bubble
@Manic2014: Troll harder. Sony PR: According to Activision internal estimates, the PS4 system is the #1 platform worldwide for Destiny based on units sold through as of October 4, 2014.
like... there are more PS4's out there, so of course? like this should be shocking to nobody.
