Whoa! You would think that it would sell well on the PS3 and moreso on
Wii, and I can understand the numbers for the PS2. Looks like the Wii
continue its attach rate being the lowest.
The numbers aren't really surprising to me except the sheer size of
the number for the Xbox 360.
It should have been obvious that the Xbox 360 version would far
outsell the PS3 version based on just how many more Xbox 360s there
HUH? The 360 has a bit more than double the install base, yet the 360
version of GHIII sold nearly 7 times more than the PS3 version.
The fact that not as many of the PS3 version shipped due to the
publisher knowing just how much less of an install base the PS3 has
was a big factor as well. In the first week, I saw maybe 1 or 2 of the
PS3 version on shelves in over a dozen retailers. There were plenty of
the Xbox 360 and even the Wii version.
It has just less than half the install base, hence why I am surprised at the
sames numbers for the PS3, the PS3 owners are NOT buying games.
My point was that Activision was probably looking at the same numbers
everybody else has been looking at with regards to attach rates and
how people just don't seem to be buying many games for the Playstation
3 in general.
Even though they knew that they had a major hit on their hands,
they're not going to risk having tons of inventory just sitting around
so they shipped a LOT less of the Playstation 3 version, to a much
greater degree than the difference between install base.
My 3 local Target stores only got a handful of the PS3 version but
loads of the Xbox 360 and Wii versions. My 3 local Best Buys had the
same situation - they carry less stock of Playstation 3 games in
general and this was no exception.
