    Titanfall sells 700,000 copies at launch but PS4 still outsells Xbox One comfortably

    Source

    Cat....pigeons...

    The messsiah came and caused a stir among existing Xbox One owners, but wasn't powerful enough to fend off the PS4 juggernaut. A clever marketing ploy by SONY saw around 200,000 PS4 units shipped globally during Titanfall week. Titanfall did manage to boost Xbox One sales in UK and USA, but outside of those regions, the game had almost no impact on hardware sales. Below is the breakdown of the hardware and software sales across USA and PAL during the week ending March 16,2014.

    UK :
    Xbox One - 23,000 units
    PS4 - 27,000 units
    Titanfall Xbox One - 125,000 copies

    USA :
    Titanfall Xbox One - 480,000 copies
    We do not have the final hardware numbers for last week, but based on the near final numbers, we have PS4 and Xbox One being virtually neck and neck, with each console selling over 100,000 units

    Rest of Europe / PAL:
    PS4 - 80,000 units ( Hardware sales increased 200% over the week ending March 9th, 2014)
    Xbox One - 12,000 units
    Titanfall Xbox One - ~100,000 units

    No offense to you, Sparc, but that source looks like BS to me.

    Thats better than i thought it would sell. Wait, those numbers aren't official. Could be less or more. I'm sure MS or EA will give figures once the game releases for xbox360.

    Sure. Almost looks like someone just threw up a website and called themselves "insiders". Wonder if those are vgchartz numbers or something.

    Why bother linking to N4G at all? To me all they are is a link redirector like linkbucks.

    Probably not far from the truth.
    It'd already have been announced if it passed the magic 1 million mark.

    Most likely the truth as I have seen tons of X1s n store still with no PS4 (o limited) and PS4 stays a the top of Amazon while the X1 can not crack the top 5 even when the PS4 is sold out.

    I'm actually going to close this thread as I've not seen the news reported at any other news sites and that leads me to believe the data is suspect.
