PS4 Made Up Largest Part of Ubisoft Game Sales During the Last 3 Months, Doubles Xbox One and PC Sales

Last week, publisher Ubisoft revealed that its recent game releases have sold very well. So well, in fact, that the company's sales in the last three months have risen 374 percent over the same time period in 2013. But one of the big questions during Ubisoft's earnings call was how those sales were distributed over the platforms. On the day of the call, the company also published a breakdown of the software sales by system, and it turns out that games sold best on the PlayStation 4 by a wide margin.

Driven by a very strong performance by March's release of Watch Dogs, over 50 percent of Ubisoft's software revenue came from the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 during the past three months. But Ubisoft games on the PS4 sold much better than on Xbox One. Sales on the PS4 made up 36 percent of Ubisoft's revenue, more than double the One's 17 percent. It's interesting to note that PS4 revenue also more than doubled sales on PC, which came in at 14 percent of total sales.

You can check out the entire console breakdown over the last three months below. Software sales for the Wii U, Vita, and 3DS were negligible over this time period.

ConsolePercentage of Software Sales From April-June 2014
PlayStation 436%
Xbox One17%
PlayStation 317%
Xbox 36014%
PC14%
Wii1%
Mobile/Other1%

Hey Shielder. I know you want to seem all high and mighty on SW's but this topic was already made so there's no need to try to repeat it.

Because of PC pirating. Those people have no morals and were raised wrong by bad parents.

I thought everyone across all platforms said the games wasn't anything special, quite meh (my opinion aswell from the short time played), and some even called trash, complete shit.

So, PS4 gamers buy more mediocre/shit games than PC gamers. OK.

See how stupid the argument is. Really, "playing sales" is just sad, far more than the resolutiongate itself.

Well, at least they pirated less than the Wii and Mobile gamers, and the same amount as 360 gamers.

That's a good sign.

Ubisoft sucks

@Shielder7: So basically, while PC sales in general are doubling PS4's, the PS4 is beating PC in buying games from a company known to fuck its customers in the ass. Nice.

Consoles have Pirates to, and there is only less Console Pirates because its more difficult to pirate games on Console. Console players are no more moral than anyone else.

@melonfarmerz: yet there are hardly any AAA PC exclusives. Also lol @ comparing total PC sales to a console that isn't even up to 8 months old. The height of hermit desperation.

"B...bu....bu....but teh PC game revenue is teh highest!!!!1"

It probably is if you count Facebook games as PC games and F2P games but the pitiful AAA exclusive library of the past years isn't fooling anyone,

The game that had masked assets buried in the files & ran like poorly on AMD & along with Uplay requirements did not selling the highest on PC ? Shocker. It sold well on multiple platforms. The marketing was exclusive to Sony.

What was ubisoft's last year sales? wasn't it 25% PC?

PS3 had a ton of pirated games as well as game sharing. The Original Xbox had a ton as well.

not all Surprising because Ubi has been giving PS4 top Priority for most it's games.

Not to mention that most PC Gamers HATE Uplay.

Not surprised. Sony fans have terrible taste and there isn't anything else to play on the PS4.
