The accomplishment is oddly specific. That's like saying I am the best-looking person in my town who happened to like rock music, hiking, have a day job as an automotive developer, & game dev in the evening.

I was wondering a rather popular newly launch game wasn't on this subforum, Genshin Impact, only to find out it wasn't on Xbox.

This isn't new, many 3rd party games either come later or never, without even SOny buying any exclusivity, like fall guys, Genshin impact, Nier to name a few, & the reason I think is installed base. Even if you do not care about" Console wars", the player base matters as consumers.





Looking at the chart, Xbox has only a 6.25% share of the game revenue, & PS4 14%. Obviously, the share in the type of games are different across the platform.

When we break down to AAA games. Data are hard to get, so far I only manage to find a breakdown from Witcher 3



Another chart of the world's biggest game market, China.

We heard earlier today that Switch was again the best-selling console in the United States. That piece of information was more important than initially thought, as the system has set a new record.

Following what took place in September, Switch has been the best-selling console in the U.S. since December 2018. That marks 22 consecutive months that this has happened, and a new record has been set. The Xbox 360 previous held the record with 21 consecutive months, which took place between August 2011 and April 2013.

Wow Playstation gamers are consistently buying more than double (even triple in 2016) the amount of software than Xbox over last 5 years or so at least in the Witcher's 3 case. PC is also on the rise. Seems like PC/PS4 was definitely becoming the norm for last gen. I foresee similar trend this gen as well.

There is a reason a lot of Japanese studios who do not normally develop for PC is starting to do so now.
