Forums - Sales Discussion - Fifa 19 Uk sales platform split

JRPGfan said:
the UK is probably the region where FIFA 19 does best on the Xbox..... considering how the USA doesnt really care about soccor.
For it to do only 35% of the PS4 sales there... jeez...

PS4 total sales for this title must dwarf the xbox one's by a factor of like 1 : 10 globally.

The site sales for fifa 18, 11m for PS4 v 3m for the Xbox, so yeah PS4 very heavily favoured.



Around the Network

The PS4 version outsold the Xbox One version while the Xbox One version had official bundles and marketing. You know this, Kerotan. Now the tables have been turned and PS has the marketing deal back, it's not really surprising to see the PS4 version maintain a healthy lead over other platforms (Specifically legacy and Switch platforms) and probably extend that lead as the PS4's actual marketshare also increases.

Why are people acting surprised by this, or trying to make up silly excuses? Just look at how FIFA 18, FIFA 17, FIFA 16, etc. have all performed on specific platforms. You're on a sales website.

Worldwide, FIFA 18 on PS4 sold more in a single week than the Xbox One and Switch versions sold lifetime combined going by data available on this website.

Imo EA should stop releasing it for the ps3 and 360.

I believe the main reason for that is because the last gen versions still do relatively well in developing countries where people don't really have PS4/Xbox One yet.

 

Also, glad to see PS4 dominating. Although I am curious what the actual platform split is since this doesn't account for digital sales (ie. 100% of PC sales). I'm sure PC sales are no where near PS4/Xbox level, but I do wonder how they compare to Switch sales.

In the UK, Horizon 3 sold very well at launch.

I doubt it sells anywhere close to fifa at launch 

....and?



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

Last gen version sales were negligible. Imo EA should stop releasing it for the ps3 and 360. 

Isn't the Switch version still based on the same engine as the last gen versions?

Basically EA does the same as they did during the Wii days, where they used a same build of Fifa for both Wii and PS2. As such, EA will produce those versions as long as they have the Switch to feed them.

I wonder how EA access on xbox reduces the retail sales of the next fifa...

Did you forget what you originally said? I'm saying fifa is big enough to not be affected by a game with the launch sales of a forza which btw is a racing game and this is football. I doubt forza is the reason.

Its big enough take off a small chunk off fifa xbox sales. It would be 40 percent xbox share without the horizon 4.

You forgot that racing games are big in UK. Evem games like F1 which are niche stadestide is very popular there.

That's like saying ps4 share would be even higher if spiderman didn't launch. And that game was massively bigger then forza.

spiderman was three weeks ago, while Horizon is more or less in the same week. Apples to oranges comparison here.
