Ubisoft Financial Reports Shows What Platform Takes Centre Stage When It Comes to Gaming

/ 1 year ago


This year’s Q1 financial report coming from Ubisoft reveals what platform gamers are more interested in. If you thought that the battle was between Sony’s PS4 and Microsoft’s Xbox One, you are bound to be amazed. The report shows that the company sold twice as many PS4 games compared to Xbox One titles, having Microsoft’s console plunge down even below PC sales figures. In other words, PS4 games account for 27% of software sales, PC for 23% and Xbox One for just 11%.

The results also show how PC gaming has risen 14% compared to last year’s financial report, showing that the PC has been getting a lot more attention and is moving close to surpassing even the PS4 next year. In contrast, the Xbox One sales fell down 14% compared to last year, showing that gamers are more likely to drop Microsoft’s console in favour of Sony or the PC. Even Nintendo’s Wii and Wii U saw an extremely slow sales figure, coming in with only 3%. However, the figure was expected to be low, since Ubisoft did not release any new Wii U title.

But enough about reports and statistics. What do you think? Are you a PS4 gamer or more inclined to switch to Sony’s console, or are you happy with the PC or other platforms? Let us know in the comments below.

    If you have a look at the financial results, it’s not bad for Xbox One. It’s bad news for the whole console market. PS4 loses equally much of it’s market share going from 36% to 27%.

    PC sales second largest is quite high with the problamatic history and reputation Ubisoft has. I think Ubisoft can gain a lot more on the pc market after years of digging. Ubisoft is a company that very financially driven, it’s good to see that based on these numbers Ubisoft can’t ignore the PC gamer any longer…
