With over 8 million copies of Watch Dogs sold, there can be no question that the title has been a big hit for Ubisoft. We can learn something from the sales, which is exactly what is the breakdown between the new platforms of the versions sold.
In surprising news, 36% of Watch Dog sales in Q1 was on the PlayStation 4, while the Xbox One sales only made up 17% of the total sales. The combined sales between the two next-generation consoles makes up 53% of the sales total with the rest split among Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
While some of this lag in sales on the Xbox One version can be blamed by the fact that Microsoft has only shipped 5 million Xbox One consoles so far, while Sony has sold over 7 million PlayStation 4 consoles. That is a gap that Microsoft looks too narrow in the run up to the holiday season.
