Ubisoft Platform Sales Charts: PS4 Is King
As of late, Ubisoft games tend to sell better on the PlayStation 4.
During the publisher's latest earnings report (as cited by GameSpot), we learn that Ubisoft titles have sold better on Sony's new console.
The chart provided through the link is self-explanatory: While Xbox One was fourth for the quarter ending September 30, PS4 led the way. In a three-month stretch (the quarter ending September 30), 21 percent of all sold Ubisoft games were for PS4, while only 9 percent were for Xbox One. For a six-month period, a whopping 32 percent of all Ubisoft games sold were PS4 titles, as opposed to 15 percent for Xbox One. The PS3 also outstrips the Xbox One in both comparisons.
This isn't overly surprising, though, as Ubisoft often partners with Sony to deliver exclusive content for the PlayStation brand. You may also recall that several high-profile titles, including Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag and Watch Dogs, simply performed better on PlayStation 4. Gamers notice these things.
And of course, there's the sales discrepancy to consider: At last count, the PS4 had sold over 10 million units worldwide, while the Xbox One had only managed about 6 million.
