So let’s analyze. The Crew 2 sits at the top of the Xbox One chart, 5th in the PS4 chart and 4th in all formats. As the game sold more copies on PS4; all Ubisoft software performs stronger on PS4 according to the company, we know that every PS4 game above The Crew 2 (at the least) outsold every single Xbox One title in June 2018. This means in God of War’s third month of sales it has outsold titles like State of Decay 2, multiplayer juggernaut PUBG and even new entry the Crash Bandicoot: N. Sane Trilogy. It also means the second Playstation exclusive in the all format top ten, Detroit: Become Human, has outsold every game on Xbox One in June 2018. Another exclusive, Mario Tennis Aces topped the charts after only two weeks of sales. It became the fastest selling tennis game of all time, and this isn’t even including digital sales.

This really is a testament to the power of exclusives. With the PS4 being the best selling current generation console yet again, Sony is seeing the direct rewards of supporting their hardware with content that is available nowhere else. With the Nintendo Switch continuing to sell strongly they are in a similar situation. It really is a testament to the experiences that Playstation and Nintendo’s first party studios are creating and their ability to draw players.
