Forums - Sales Discussion - Is the ratio between retail and digital on Xbox one higher than on other platforms?

So do you have codww2 on ps4? if yes please look at the highscores and tell us how much players are registered, i mean with all that factors which where told here why the xone version has ~ 10 million "players" (5.6 million retail source vgchartz) there should be between 22-24 million players on ps4, if not i think the digital attach rate on XOne in the big markets is much higher than on ps4

Yesterday i looked in the Highscores of cod ww2 and i saw that in the multiplayer are 9.4 million users played minimum 1 round. We know that some people only play the story or others only play the zombiemode. So we can estimate that codww2 sold 10 million copies on Xboxone reatil+ digital which means that there is a very high ratio for digital at around ( 45%)

I wrote this on the gamepage of codwwII (Xone) too.

So it would be interesting to know how much players are registered on the ps4 and the pc at the highscore lists on each platform with that we would know how big every multiplayer fanbase on every platform is and we could estimate if a game is overtracked or the ratio between retail and digital is lower.

The percentage that is physical is highest on Nintendo.  The % that is digital is highest on PC.  I'm not sure which is higher between PS4 and X1 at the moment.

do we have number from the codwwII (ps4) multiplayer highscore list?



I wouldn't be surprised if that was the case.

I can actually say for certain this nonsense isn't true. Hell, I can even say I have proof.

Over here in the carribeans, and in pretty much all of africa or any other part of the world where the playstation isnt offixially beimg supported. We all buy digital.

Why? because its cheaper.

We buy oir consoles from NA or EU. But its cheaper to use oir cards to go to a site like PC game supply and buy PSN cards and use those tp load our qallets and buy games than to buy thw stupidly expensive games from stores over here with their extremely limited selection of games.

Now remember that the PS4 is globally the better selling console. By far. I can't imagine how with the bulk of the ROTW sales being digital for the PS4 the XB1 would still somehow sell better digitally.

To further prove my point, in the last 4 years, since the PS4 launched, I've not seen a single physical game (outside fifa and cod that i see for sale for around $130 in the local agores here). Not one. Never even held the box of a ps4 physical game.

I can agree with this. ALthoug I have left the Dominican Republic in a few years, I belive ps4 games where like $110. 

I did different. I always had somebody that visited the US frequently so I ordered a few games every time they went. I dislike digital.



It takes genuine talent to see greatness in yourself despite your absence of genuine talent.

With services like EA access and now xbox game pass doing well, it's not a bad assumption. They're clearly targeted at a digital focused community. We almost here nothing about PlayStation now on this site by comparison. In fact, I can't even remember the last time it's been brought up. Though, I don't often go into the Sony forums and read their posts to be fair.


If anyone could look up ww2 ps4 figures, it could help. Nothing here is concrete evidence though but the thought of Xbox people buying more digital has been around since last generation, whether right or wrong.

I would also like to point out pubg selling 3 million copies in a month. Has any digital only game done similar figures on the ps4 in such a short time yet?

last time I checked the leaderboards for WW2 on PS4, it was around 15m.



people share copies. people have multiple xbox accounts. used games etc 

can't look at it that way.



sorry double post!

So it is like i thought

1. The digital ratio is much higher on xboxone then on ps4

or

2.the versions are under (XOne)/overtracked (Ps4) here on vgcharts

or

3. both

 

so on january 6.

we have  11.6 million (vgcgartz) copies sold retail on ps4 by ~15 million people who started the game on ps4

and we have5.5 million (vgchartz) copies sold retail on XOne by ~10 million people who started the game on XOne

 

The ratio between the two consoles between 15 million sold on ps4 and 10 million sold on XOne (retail and digital) looks much more realistic to me then 5.5 million and 11.6 and this is only one game where we see this big unrealistic difference
