[TT]Rise of the Tomb Raider on PC smashes Xbox One sales - Page 2

post #11 of 27
Clutching at straws.

Digital sales are minuscule on consoles and always will be when you can get a new game from anywhere between 20 to 50 dollars less in retail vs the never dropped prices of games on XBL/PSN outside of sales or a EOL consoles legacy titles.

Then theres the resale advantage that physical copies bring.

It is like that kids game where you whispers a message in ones ear and they pass it along to the next kid and at the end something like "Harry likes tomato juice" becomes "Barry loves dancing shoes". I don't know the english name of the game sorry.

The original source says "digital sales" and then the next websites basically changes the news into just sales.

Then we have people quoting news that say Xbox one sold 1 million so PC has to have sold 3 million.

I don't dare to say that I am right with my assumptions, but more reasonable is to look at it that way :

1) Steamspy says ROTR is at about 500k~ owners on Steam. Steamspy is pretty close, they are not spot on, but they are always pretty close

2) ROTR was bundled with Nvidia GPUs

3) Digital sales on PC make up something like 90% of all sales.

4) Digital sales on Xbox aren't anywhere as high as physical sales

5) Windows Store has a couple of sales aswell. I am certain that it isn't anywhere near Steam. Not even with the exploits people used.


Even in the best possible scenario the game has sold probably less than 600K including digital, physical, steam and Windows Store.

Worldwide digital games market: January 2016

The newly-released PC version of Rise of the Tomb Raider surprises at release. As one of Square Enix’s most visible franchises, the Tomb Raider franchise performed in January, receiving both strong industry recognition and benefitting from a seasonal lull of triple A games. Initial sales numbers on digital console for Rise of the Tomb Raider were soft, due to sharing its release date with Fallout 4 and its exclusivity to Xbox One. The game sold almost three times as many units on PC than it did on console during its first month

The article is focused mostly on Digital sales, not Digital and Physical.
Just because Rise of the Tomb Raider sold over 1 million over the holidays on the Xbox One does not mean that 1 million of those sales were digital, most of them were likely to be physical copies which this data does not account for,

It is sad that this doesn't include total sales, if it really was total sales we might see almost all games released as PC games at the same time or even first. PC would probably be a good platform to beta test on for the first release, its users are more comfortable tweaking and dealing with bugs and any fixes, where applicable, could be included in the later console releases.

I wonder if they are counting the copies EVGA purchased to give away with the GTX GPUs?

Probably around 900K-1M on PC. I believe digital sales on consoles are almost as high as retail sales now but still a bit lower. Assuming 30% of ROTR were digital that would mean 300K sold digitally on Xbox One and 900K on PC. If it was an even split than that would be 1.5M on PC.
