New Batman’s Pre-Orders PS4 vs Xbox One Are 4 to 1; Titanfall Helped Sell a Million Xbox One Units – Insider

Looks like the Batman fans are leaning more towards the PS4 version of the new Batman: Arkham Knight than towards the Xbox One version, as mentioned today on NeoGAF by insider Pete “FamousMortimer” Dodd, that has a very good track record with the information provided by his sources:

I was told last night by a guy at MS that Batman is being preordered, in the US, to the tune of 4 to 1 in favor of the PS4 currently.

Dodd also gave some information on how many Xbox One units Titanfall is helping move:

Marketing guys project that Titanfall has already helped sell around 1 million Xbox Ones. This is based off of things like upticks in sales after every major Titanfall announcements. They don’t know if it will move 200k more at this point. The titanfall bundle is selling less than Microsoft projected (but they are still hopeful for a big swing come tuesday).

While Dodd’s information is normally spot-on, as usual we should take it with a grain of salt. That said, considering the current situation, the picture he paints is definitely believable, both for Batman: Arkham Knight and Titanfall.
