Call of Duty: Black Ops III for Xbox One Sells About 1,300 Copies in Japan; PS4 Ratio Grows Over PS3
Call of Duty: Black Ops III dominated the Media Create software charts this week, but the Xbox One version did not appear in the top 20 chart. Today the data crunching firm released its top 50 chart, revealing the position and sales of the game on Microsoft’s console.
Black Ops III managed to place itself among the relatively few games that managed to break into the top 50 ranking on Xbox One, ending up in 46th place.
Media Create also specifies that the game sold a total of roughly 166,000 copies in its first week. Considering that the PS4 version sold 143,817 units, and the PS3 version sold 20,899 units, this leaves the Xbox One version with about 1,300 copies sold.
Media Create’s analysis also pinpoints how the ratio of PS4 copies grew over PS3 since the launch of Advanced Warfare last year. The older Call of Duty title sold on PS4 64,000 copies for the subtitled version, and 9,000 for the version dubbed in Japanese during their respective debut weeks. The PS3 version sold 80,000 copies subtitled and 14,000 copies dubbed.
This shows a large shift of the local Call of Duty fans towards the current generation, as the PS4 becomes more and more widespread in the country.
