Ubisoft has shipped 8 million copies of Watch Dogs, the company announced in an investor’s call today, significantly boosting its sales this fiscal year.
Watch Dogs broke records following its release, with 4 million copies sold in its first week, making it the best-selling new franchise launch in history. Ubisoft said that its $490 million first quarter fiscal sales increased 374 percent form last year’s $103 million. This exceeded the company’s goal of $422 million for the quarter, with strong growth in the digital sector as well –– 14 percent of Watch Dog’s sales were digital, with a slight lean toward Xbox One.
Despite early issues with PC versions of Watch Dogs, the game sold somewhere between 10-12 percent of its total copies on the platform, Ubisoft said. These, along with console sales, bode well for the publisher’s tax future.
It’s open war across the cosmos, and your wallets look to be the first casualty in Destiny’s interplanetary conflict. Bungie announced today that it will be pre-selling two DLC packs and revealed the contents of its special editions. The studio also said that the PlayStation beta will start on July 17th, with the Xbox beta kicking off a week later on July 23rd.
Despite the name, the Destiny Expansion Pass isn’t for full-fledged expansions but for the first couple of post-launch content additions. The first pack, The Dark Below, will explore an ancient tomb underneath the Moon’s surface. Bungie is promising exclusive PlayStation content for both expansion packs. Players can buy the expansion pass for $34.99 or individual packs for $19.99 apiece.
Alternatively, thrifty Destiny fans can pick up one of the special editions that come with the two DLC packs included. These packages include the Digital Guardian Edition ($89.99), the Limited Edition ($99.99), and the Ghost Edition ($149.99). While the editions each contain a different mix of goodies, by pre-ordering any of them players will have early access to weapons, gear, and emblems.
Bungie also released the official beta trailer, which you can watch after the break.
I decided to take a little time off from work today and get in a little Bar-B-Q type of food, some gaming and some movie time and I am going to check out some of the local Fireworks, before the the weekend is upon us all.
Everyone have a fantabulous fourth.
Thanks David Despau
