OTX report says 360 owners defecting to PS3

13 Comments | posted

A recent report found on Gamasutra.com shows industry analyst, OTX’s Gameplan Insights, declaring that 360 owners are currently defecting to the PlayStation 3 for their multiplatform titles. The report indicates that starting with Assassin’s Creed 2 and Modern Warfare 2, a higher percentage of PlayStation 3 dual-console owners are purchasing the game than ever before.

OTX analyst, Nick Williams, says that 15% of owners picking up Assassin’s Creed II on the PlayStation 3 owned the original assassination title on the Xbox 360 instead. These figures are pulled from the company’s intent to purchase charts and can be taken with a grain of salt or accuracy depending on who you are.

On the counter side, apparently only 7% of individuals picking up the title for the 360 purchased the original on the PlayStation 3. This leaves over a 200% differential between the two (My math sucks, but I’m sure this is right).

Though numbers for Modern Warfare 2 were not released, Williams states, “The PS3 seems poised to shift the ratio of Xbox 360 to PS3 sales for most major multiplatform releases in its favor among dual owners.”

    I’m one of those people I owned MW for 360, but do to me getting the RROD 5 times, I’m buying MW2 for PS3. PS3 has always been my console of choice, but majority of my friends had MW on 360. Most of them have since gotten a PS3.

    i kinda have to call BS on this article. If more people are going to buy assasins creed 2 and MW2 on the ps3 then why are the preorders for the 360 version have 1 million more than the ps3 version? and assasins creed 2′s preorders on 360 also outsell the ps3 version.
