Sales of EA titles on PS4 strong

Written by David Stellmack

1 out of 3 games purchased for the PS4

Electronic Arts is apparently pretty pleased with the PlayStation 4 launch in North America. Why shouldn’t they be as reports suggest that 1 out of every 3 titles purchased for the PlayStation 4 is an Electronic Arts published title.

If the tweet from COO Peter Moore is correct about 33% of all of the games purchased for the PS4 so far are EA titles. For the North American launch EA had Battlefield 4, FIFA 14, Madden 25, and Need for Speed Rivals released as launch day titles. If you are into the numbers that means out of the 11 games that were on retailer shelves at launch, 36% of them belonged to Electronic Arts.

So the bigger question is how well will Electronic Arts do on the Xbox One with the same four titles? Well, we expect much of the same kind sales for EA on the rival console as well. The thing is however, and we will not know for sure till Friday, it looks like the Xbox One may have more titles available launch day than the PS4 had, so by the numbers EA might not have as strong of a sales percentage. We will have to wait and see how this shakes out, but already things are looking positive for software sales on the new consoles.
