Overall Call of Duty and Assassin's Creed seem to be in great shape. Call of Duty is down slightly and catching up slowly. 

Assassin's Creed IV is down a decent amount but catching up quickly.
Short of major adjustments both games should pass their predecessors by the end of 2014.

Battlefield 4 though is down by a massive amount. While it's final week of sales are up compared to battlefield 3, it isn't by much. This is especially conerning when you take into account Battlefield 3's final week ended very late and only included 1 day of holiday sales while Battlefield 4's final week included 4 days of holiday sales. After this week I expect it to fall behind battlefield 3 weekly and never come close to catching up in lifetime sales.



Around the Network

Nice thread.. Nothing can stop the sequels.. Think Battlefield has word to mouth problems.. Killing it legs.. But dropping the price fast for the holidays was a smart idea to boost the numbers.. AC4 just had the bad luck that AC3 was booooring so people might have waited to pick it up



 

Face the future.. Gamecenter ID: nikkom_nl (oh no he didn't!!) 

Hopefully one day... All these shitty games will cease to exist... But that will probably never happen

While some people will hate these games they are clearly loved by many. I don't understand why you hope they cease to exist? Because they aren't your cup of tea? So what just play something else. You can't be expected to love everything. 

If you are mad that they are causing other developers to mimic these guys. Be angry at those other developers for going for the cheap buck instead of making their own experiences. If you think they are bringing the industry down, be happy that they are keeping the masses interested in consoles. Because otherwise the market would be far smaller and consoles might indeed start dying out.
