Kind of makes sense really. Xbox One wasn't boosted by that much and of course they had that free game deal that week, with the free game being digital it wouldn't have been included.

Free game wasn't digital.  Had to be a physical copy.


Did they have to buy Destiny? Included?


The XB1?  No.  They had the option to buy any XB1 (bundle or not) and select a free game off the stands.  The ad image is linked in this thread, go check it out.


So ppl are assuming? 

People are assuming that one of the most sought after releases of the year was picked up free when they were given the opportunity to do so when buying a console they wanted, yes.  Just like the OP is assuming no one opted to get it free and every copy was sold based on his thread title.



Around the Network

And most of them were given away for FREE and were a total LOSS for MS. Pyrrhic "victory".



Could be bacause Xbox One controller is better for FPS games.
Could also be because Bungie/Halo fans are on Xbox.

This stat won't be the same for europe though.

First: Completely irrelevant. Never mind that every shooter, besides Ghosts, has sold better on PS4 in the US.

Second: If that were the case, the game wouldn't have sold better on PS4 at all.

How could it be surprising if PS4 Destiny sold more nonetheless?

I don't understand you people.

A. PS4 has more CONSOLES sold in the USA.

B. Destiny was promoted ONLY for PS4 consoles.

C. SEE A AND B

I don't understand how you dont see that..   I am not talking about NEW people who just bought a PS4.. The current installed base of both consoles and promotion would have made me think this was impossible..  so hence I am "suprised" ..  We also don't have digtial sales for EITHER consoles.. so really.. we cant even 100% say that it sold more on PS4..


Opening post quote:

"Yes.. with Digitial and PS4 Destiny bundles we know PS4 sold more copies of the game"


You are still ignoring the whole point of the post..     so anyway.  You don't undestand it.. others do.


I don't understand that you don't understand that you contradict yourself. Yeah, truly incomprehensible.



Hunting Season is done...

Shame. The games pretty average.



The game is amazing and deserve these sales.

PS4 sold more due the bundle and Xbone sold good due the free copies... it is fine because the game is being loved by the community that is growing each day.



Yeah I was surprised too. Looks like all that PS advertising helped Destiny sell well on Xbox too.

I don't understand that you don't understand this is what NPD reported and that is why I said it..   I didn't make this up, or come up with it myself..  NPD did.
