I doubt it includes digital distribution, I might be wrong though.
So, more consolization is to be expected in future titles.
and deserves to be so, great game,
this is an example of when a good game gets me (genrally download games) to buy it,
its value for money will last long as is fun, Bring on Fallout 4
i think this just goes to show how much the gaming market has grown in the past decade.
No...at least a week before ;-)
That 17% is bs considering there are a gazillion million pc's compared to 6 million xboxes
17% of gazillion million is a lot more then 50% of 6 million
The 17% doesn't mean that 17% of PC owners bought the game. It means that 17% of total sales of the game were for the PC.
Let's say they sold a million. They didn't, but it's a nice round number. 17% of those were for the PC, which means 170,000 sales for the PC. 55% were for the Xbox 360, meaning 550,000 were for the Xbox 360. Thus, significantly more Xbox 360 owners bought the game despite, as you pointed out, the significantly smaller install base.
Liked the first, heard the third came out, bought the second and also bought the third.
Got to say that I allready like the game alot although wasn't able to play alot over the last couple of days.
I do have some problems from time to time with the game though.
It sometimes crashes...
And for the record, Chart-Track data doesn't include any digital distribution at all (so Steam, Direct to Drive and the rest of them), so the figures will be down for the PC.
Maybe it is because the PC fallout is not as available as the x360 fallout , maybe it is because 80% of the game shops are console game sellers. most I find 1 shelf of pc games and 300 shells of console games. and maybe the PC games are released later then the console game. And maybe I was just sarcastic. And maybe I should shut up now. Yes I will
The sales figures also probably include only the US, where consoles seem to dominate, and not e.g. Europe, where PC gaming is much stronger.
No, they're not, Chart-Track only looks at the UK markets.
