    Thumbs up PC Gaming News: PC is Ubi's 2nd most selling platform, Mantle is dead

    The PC is the second strongest platform for Ubisoft game sales
    http://www.pcgamer.com/the-pc-accoun...quarter-sales/


    PC is now 2nd strongest platform for Ubisoft, this is an important news because the relationship between Ubi and PC gamers is not so pleasant.
    Ubi is selling pc games way more than Xbox one games. Ubi's PC sales are only a little behind ps4 sales.
    this might indicate that many console gamers switched to PC since 2013.

    All very nice. But what's interesting to us is the way those revenues break down by platform. The PC accounted for 23 percent of Ubisoft's sales this quarter, an amount only (and only slightly) surpassed by the PlayStation 4, which totaled 27 percent of sales. Xbox One sales made up just 11 percent of Ubisoft's sales for the quarter, as did the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The Wii U came in a distant last with three percent, and "other"—mobile and ancillaries—grabbed the remaining 14 percent. The PC's 23 percent share also represents a dramatic increase over the 14 percent of total sales last it achieved last year.


    Watch Dogs Downgrade Backlash Changed Ubisoft's Approach to Showing Games, Says CEO
    Yves Guillemot says company now ensures games are running on target hardware before debuting.

    cant blame people here. both new gen consoles are lackluster upgrades compared to old ones. Plus still no good exclusives so far, and it has been 2 years already.
