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.

Army_of_Darkness1533d ago

The evil within 2 should cater to only next Gen versions going by these numbers.

Magicite1533d ago

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.

illtownNJONE1533d ago

12+ million consoles sold and barly sell a million copies of any title is pathetic

Fixay1533d ago

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.

ChickenOfTheCaveMan1533d ago

Considering horror games have a niche market, I find those numbers amazing.

Gamer19821533d ago

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.

BrianG1534d ago

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

I missread your post. sorry.

vishmarx1534d ago (Edited 1534d ago )

those are after or so days .
so does 1.2 million in 2 weeks for a AA new ip guarantee a sequel?

TheCagyDies1534d ago

Always good to see the horror genre thriving

deadpools_n641534d ago

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!

GenericNameHere1533d ago

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.
