if SW is almost 200k on Ps4, you better be sure that Fallout 4 and Black Ops 3 are at least double, maybe 3x.
Black Ops 3 on launch Ps4 should have done easy 700k+ or something like that.
Black Ops 3 was 62k on PC at launch. CoD on PC is roughly what, 10 to 20 percent of overall sales? Yeah i think CoD is still way, way bigger than this.
Of course PC gamers and console gamers have different tastes, look at the sales of RTSs and strategy games between the platforms. Before you say "that's because there aren't enough of those games on console" please remember that XCOM is a thing and did indeed sell less on console.I did not make that comment to say PC gamers have refined taste or anything. They buy the same garbage console gamers buy. It is just that PC versions of big AAA games that are available on consoles more or less always sell less.
As I predicted.
New MP shooters for PC platform tend not to do well.
Black Ops 3 first 3 days sold trough 550$m worth, that is what? 10 milion games?
Steam Spy had the game had ~250k on Pc for those first 3 days so not quite 20% i´d say.
Someone made a screenshot when a glitch appeared on screen can't seem to find it was around 800k people playing on PS4.
Was considering picking up for PC, maybe I should get the ps4 version instead?
I expected the PC number to be much higher than that...
Seems kind of low overall. Fallout 4 did over 400,000 concurrent users at launch on PC alone and Battlefront can't even match that on three platforms.
Origin seems like another way for EA to cut out the middle man earn more money to line their already fat wallets.
BF4 was a monster on PC, so yea it's somewhat surprising.
Even if EA made the concessions, it has the LoL/Dota moba effect where people will stick to favorites like CS:GO.Can't really blame it on the "PC platform". This game is Origin only + 60$ + relatively low amount of content + $50 Season Pass + has no server browser... If the next Counter-Strike followed that model, you bet it would crash and burn too, old IP or not.
