    KZ Shadowfall sales pwning the face off of next-gen exclusives


    PS4-exclusive Killzone: Shadow Fall pre-orders outpacing Forza 5 and Ryse - Analyst

    Sony's other titles - Knack and driveclub - aren't gaining the same consumer interest, claims analyst report.

    By James Orry (@VGJames) On 30th Jul, 2013 at 9:44am


    Pre-orders for Sony's Killzone: Shadow Fall on PS4 are tracking ahead of next-gen rivals Forza 5, Ryse and Dead Rising 3, a report from analyst Cowen & Co. has revealed.
    The 2013 Cowen Video Game Odometer is based on an analysis of NPD sales data and Amazon.com best-seller data from past years, which the firm claims to give it 96 to 97 per cent accuracy. Data has been monitored since E3 in June and is updated every few weeks.
    Out of a maximum score of 100, Killzone: Shadow Fall currently scores 30.3, which compares favourably to next-gen competition.
    Forza 5 is the top placed Xbox One title at 18.8, followed by Dead Rising 3 at 15 and Ryse at 13.2. Sony may well be concerned about its full launch line-up, however, with Knack only scoring 7.7 and Driveclub barely registering on 3.0.
    Cowen states that we are "very early in the pre-order cycle for most of the games we are tracking".
    To put these figures into context, last year's Black Ops 2 scored 100 and went on to generate sales of $1 billion in 15 days. This year's Call of Duty: Ghosts has a score of 73, meaning it's on track to sell fewer units than Blops 2, but could perform better than Modern Warfare 3.
    Battlefield 4 scored 54.7, tracking ahead of Battlefield 3, whilst Ubisoft's Watch Dogs is clearly set to perform well for a new IP with a score of 69.6.
    Somewhat surprisingly, GTA 5 only scores 58.4, but Cowen notes that this doesn't take into account pre-orders prior to June 2013 the game was accepting orders way back in November 2012.

    Looking real good there for PS4 exclusive games tracking so well. Guess the Playstation Nation mobilized like a boss.

    Edit: Made the title edgier for extra Badgerliciousness.

    This is good, especially because, truth be told, Guerilla is just really bad at presenting their games to the press.

    They seem to not know how to put enthusiasm in their words.

    More interested in learning about their new IP, which hopefully is not FPS based at all.

    I'd be surprised if it can compete with the other two FPS.

    A picture with a zipline in it would be more appropriate.

    Very good news. Of course bad news are that DriveClub and Knack aren't really selling but I'm not surprised.

    Yeah it doesn't look good for those two but glad GG is getting some love. They truly are a quality dev team.

    Going to buy Killzone and inFamous. Hopefully it won't get delayed, as the rumor says.

    I originally pre-ordered Killzone along with infamous because for some reason i though infamous was a launch title so I'm thinking of changing it to watch dogs.

    We COULD with a little stretch of the imagination put the poor performance of driveclub on the fact it will come free to all PS+ subscribers.

    Yup this is the reason I didn't pre-order drive club. If it wasn't coming free, I definitely would have.

    I'm excited! I got this preordered, along with Watch Dogs and Assassins Creed. I also got an extra controller and the new eye.
    I just can't wait to actually get this console in my hands. The next few months are going to just creep along so slowly, it's starting to hurt. I don't think I will ever have a bigger smile on my face than when I first put that sexy new controller in my hands
    Need to freeze myself in snow until release date, that'll work!

    Yep, that would most certainly affect the sales numbers.
