Ubisoft have released some financial data that show the PlayStation 4 versions of the their games are outselling Xbox One games by a factor of over two to one.
PlayStation 4 versions of Watch Dogs, Assassin’s Creed IV and other titles account for 32% of all sales whereas the Xbox One versions only account for 15%. It’s slightly better news for Microsoft on the legacy consoles where Xbox 360 sales account for 14% but this is still beaten by the PlayStation 3, which accounts for 17% of all games.
You can see how fast the gaming landscape has changed by checking the numbers from last year in the column on the far right. Before the launch of the new consoles Microsoft were on top with the Xbox 360 on 29% and the PS3 on 24%. Oddly, Ubisoft have sold more games on Wii than the Wii U in the last six months.
In the coming weeks Ubisoft will release The Crew, Far Cry 4, Assassin’s Creed Unity and Assassin’s Creed Rogue, their strongest Christmas line up for years. The company expects sales for these games to amount to around €730 million, up a massive 40% compared to last year.
