I don't understand the point you're trying to make. What has this got to do with the figures given by Ubisoft for last quarter? Think-mans point was simple. PC was the highest platform because an exclusive pc game launched. That some console games don't launch on pc has no relevance.
The point I'm trying to make, is that consoles currently have a game, that's not being sold on PC, that's bolstering sales for those respective platforms, as well as the company that published it (Activision)
"What has this got to do with Ubisoft", well, what does a game being exclusive on PC have to do with Ubisoft, if we're just saying "oh, that's cus PC's got an exclusive, that it's bolstered sales!", which is why I pointed out how Crash TR, a game which is exclusive to consoles, and not being sold on PC, just like how Ubisoft is selling a game, that's exclusive to PC, that has helped bolster sales for them.
The fact that you're trying to say they aren't the same is disingenuous at best.
What was your point with your OG comment on PC vs console sales?.
Like seriously what are you even talking about, why are you even mentioning Crash?? That has nothing to do with these sales, why even bring it up to begin with? I'm in a thread talking about Ubisofts most recent sales, and you are talking about Crash? I've never excused anything, I literally entered the thread and said I'm not surprised because there are exclusive PC games, and no exclusive console games. This has nothing to do with Crash, that's all you buddy.
I said as to why, and I've had to mention it again above. If you're just going to mouth it off as "cuz they have an exclusive!", then the same could be said in regards to Crash TR being console exclusive, which is bolstering sales for Activision.
The two of you are trying to block off any form of comparison, so that your prior points can remain standing, despite Bark's being a non point, because pointing out "oh, but it didn't go far by much" is nothing, it adds nothing and it is nothing.
Yes, an exclusive game has helped Ubisoft, but the way I've been seeing it, it's helped them and their client, thanks to them switching Anno from Steam to EGS, which you know not many like, so their client gets a nice boost in sales and user numbers. Meanwhile, Crash TR is nowhere to be found on PC, and I know fully well, that once it does release on PC, it's sales numbers will pale in comparison, to what's already been sold on consoles, so we could easily use this thread as a "oh hey, X game sold better on consoles than PC", and I'll be there, using your original line, to point out as to why that is.
I got your point. I just thought the OG comment was snarky and the usual sort of thing someone says, in such a way while rolling their eyes. In short, it's a non answer, doesn't add anything to the discussion, and easily got my attention, for a thread that's meant to be about a positive outlook, but instead we've got your comment and bark's "meh, it's not by much" type of comment.
