The Bethesda Softworks published survival horror game The Evil Within sold 818,816 at retail across all platforms in its first week on sale.
That's about right. PS4 has been selling multiplats at about 3 times the number of games sold on the Xbox one.
Using the articles own source you're right. After looking at the numbers, most multi-platform games have sold 2 to 3 times better on PS4 than Xbox One.
And the PS4 version of COD should still outsell the X1 version.
The evil within 2 should cater to only next Gen versions going by these numbers.
holy hell! game came out on 5 platforms and sold over a half on PS4? call it anything you want, but its a true domination.
12+ million consoles sold and barly sell a million copies of any title is pathetic
I honestly think it did fairly well lol It's not your typical game and in many ways was kinda niche, it also released around the same time as many other games, includng Alien Isolation and Shadow of Mordor i think
It's a new IP and a horror game. If it was a FPS it would sell millions, which shows whats wrong with peoples taste in video games.
Considering horror games have a niche market, I find those numbers amazing.
Well more PS4s are out there its going to happen. Not to mention Xbox are more synonymous for FPS so every other genre pretty much sells better on playstation. This generation PS4 has sold so well though even FPS are selling better on PS4 like COD ghosts.
Strangely enough, the numbers in this article don't match the number on this site. According to the numbers on this site, The Evil Within has sold over 1 million units. PS4 - 620k 53% PS3 - 240k 21% XBO - 190k 16% 360 - 110k 10% Total 1,160k or 1.16 Million BTW congrats to them for their success with this new IP.
If you take a look at Weekly sales you will see that the 620k and so on numbers are for 2 weeks on the market. The article itself is showing only the 1st week of sales. For reference http://www.vgchartz.com/wee...
You are correct.
I missread your post. sorry.
those are after or so days . so does 1.2 million in 2 weeks for a AA new ip guarantee a sequel?
What success? the game sucks
Always good to see the horror genre thriving
There's nothing wrong with w new I.P debuting strong. Now if they can keep the momentum oh wait never mind it's november. Lol. But in all honesty it's good to here for a new survival horror I.P
Amazing stuff. I read somewhere that evil withinn was supposed to be THE GAME to move xbones in Japan. So what happened? Ps4 is the console of choice for multiplatform devs. Congrats Sony for giving devs the best platform to work on. Game on!
The game to move Xbones in Japan? What? It isn't even Xbone exclusive in Japan. Are you trying to start a console war? I doubt anyone ever said this.
Actually he is right mate. Look here. n4g.com/news/1601214/microsof t-bets-on-the-evil-within-to-se ll-more-xbox-one-consoles-in-ja pan
It's awesome to see this game doing well! Although knowing Crapcom they probably expected COD numbers for this before they'd start to believe fans want old school horror.
Sorry but Capcom has no connection with Evil Within. It's developed by Tango Gameworks and published by Bethesda. Http://en.m.wikipedia.org/w...
I know dude. I meant that you can be sure the big C would be watching sales of this game to test fan demand for old school horror.
Ah, yes, you are right.
I think capcom already learnt their lesson about over estimated their games. Revelations 1 sold like 1.5 mill across all platform (3DS, PS3, 360, WiiU, PC) and they sound pretty pleased about that. Until now we still don't hear capcom targeting Revelations 2 & RE HD Remaster to sold CoD numbers too. But i could be wrong though...
Only 44k sold on PC ...wow Edited
Yeah who'd of thought that some PC gamers still buy retail. I haven't bought a retail game in many years with all the great digital distribution networks on PC.
If you have any info regarding digital sales plz share it :) i'm curious about how much it actually sold on pc .
It wouldn't be huge surprise if that number includes digital copies. The game is simply just bad; badly ported simple and straightforward action game. There's tons of better games available to spend time with.
PC players are just Pirates
Who the hell on PC purchases retail games? I would say 90% or more (just speculating) of PC gamers purchase digital.
Even the best graphic is on PC and PS4 is still dominant. I (personally) think the publishers should consider this situation and every game released on the PS4 and XB1 that most likely sold more 3:1 in favor on PS4 and choose the best choice in order to take advantage of the platform for the sake of gamers.
Congrats,the game deserves it
Hell yeah, where are the haters now!
I purchase my copy from steam (most Pc players do this) I dont think Pc sold only 44k in my oponion is much more...anyway game is great!! 9/10 for me:)
Who cares what console did better... The game is awesome and the return of survival horror is back to the massives and casuals and is totally on its way back to life. I think that is what we should focus on.
I guess survival horror should die permanently according to the disagrees...Let's go on to the action shooters parading as survival horrors we all been set on...Good to go.
Good news, I hope it continues to sell well as I thought it was a great game and was very harshly treated by some "journalists". Games like this serve to remind me that if I like the look of a game I should play it and ignore these self proclaimed experts opinions on whether it is deserving of my attention.
Regardless of which console sold more. I guess shinji should be happy this game broke a million in 2 weeks. Maybe it could reach 2mil lifetime.
Sony makes it mark. Pretty much all games sell better on ps4.
How do you all know if these numbers are accurate? who reports their numbers to vgachartz?
