Ubisoft pre-orders for upcoming titles performing better on next gen consoles


Pre-orders for next-gen editions of games including Watch Dogs and Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag are performing better than the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions.

"The fans are really excited to get their hands on the new technology," Ubisoft European chief Alain Corre told MCV. "It has been eight years without a home console from Sony or Microsoft so we feel a lot of excitement from our fans for Watch Dogs or Assassin's Creed IV. The pre-orders we are getting are much bigger on our next-gen games."

Corre also noted that the new consoles may have sparked interest in those who have already moved on from the current consoles.

"There is a number of good quality products at launch [for each console]. I think that will bring back a lot of lapsed gamers and it will also seduce new consumers to spend some more time on interactive entertainment.

"We think we will have positive growth from the 12-month from launch, we should see more than double-digit increase of the market in calendar 2014."

Ubisoft's current next-gen line-up currently includes Watch Dogs, Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag, The Division and The Crew.

I bet a lot of preorders are going to get cancelled. People probably preorder them get them ready and if decide not to get a next gen console cancel the preorders. With Ubisoft they do so many packages I am more confused than ever. Black Flag has Bucanneer edition, Skull edition, standard edition and maybe more editions that I have not spotted or they have not listed yet! Plus I am not sure if I will get a PS4 now in time for it due to lack of stock and if people do not get a PS4 may cancel their PS4 preorders. I am not sure if I will get a Xbox ONE either, it all depends if I have enough money - I would rather spend getting PS3/Xbox 360/PC versions than spend on a new console, so if I am lacking funds then the games will take priority, and get current gen or PC and cancel next gen console and games preorders

And people who have ordered a PS3/360 and decide they want next gen cancel and order the next gen ones. So yeah, another rant against next gen.

How is that a rant against next gen? If I the money for next gen I will not buy the current gen games myself. You are getting delusional now.
