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.

WHen looking at these stats, it's clear the PS4 has over double the numbers of that of the XO. This would suggest the PS4 console has more than twice the lead at the hardware level. Meaning if PS4 has sold 12million the XO couldn't be past 6 million sold.

sadly for Nintendo and their Wii U. It's likely they'll drop into third place in less than 6 months time.

It's important to remember that the Wii U is in it's "blooming" phase, where it's stronger sales period, relative to a console cycle, should be underway as we speak.
With XO and PS4 still in their budding phase it seems really probable the XO will fly past the Wii U as the months draw on.

I still can't believe that Microsoft actually thought gamers would accept there aggressive policies (I'm referring to the time when Xone was announced). Do they have access to the internet? Lol. They treated the gaming market like the computer software market, thinking people would just accept mediocrity, not realising that people game for the passion, not because it's a necessity for their job.

And it seems as though their actions have left an irrevocable stain on their reputation. Well, I certainly do not sympathise.

Just think. In one year's time nearly every bullet point MS tried to push on consumers, including the lies as to how the Kinect is integral to the XO, were revoked.

I guess I'm a bit impressed that they were so quickly willing to drop the Kinect and do what some said would never happen.

EDIT: I also wonder that seeing that MS is pretty much in a very second place position for the duration of this gen, if they'll seek to quickly restart another generation to gain the advantage once again. It seems unthinkable at this point. But I would not be surprised for a minute if MS announced a XO successor in less than 4 years time.

Couldn't agree more!

I really don't know what those guys at microsoft were thinking with the Xbox One. I really don't. How could they have possibly believed that people were going to go for what they were offering?

And how could anyone arrive at that final VCR-like design and say, "yep, that's it right there!"

To be fair, I'm sure those guys at MS are nice people, but they sure had some horrible ideas.

Guess they are going to need a new excuse on why The Division now has the X1 as its lead platform because "The majority of Ubisoft fans are on Xbox."* isn't going to cut it.

Total domination – as if that is a surprise by now. 🙂

Another thing that's quite interesting is to see the percentage of the PC platform. This indicates that the stats includes digital sales. I rarely see a comparable stats across the platforms like that.
