It’s been available for the next-gen consoles for a week, and the first sales numbers, in the UK at least, have been released for Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition. According to sales figures released by Chart-Track, Tomb Raider has sold over twice as many copies on the PlayStation 4 than Xbox One during the first week.
Sixty-nine percent of the units sold were for the PS4 while just 31% were for the Xbox One.
The reason for the monumental difference in sales of the game between the two consoles could likely be due to the fact that the PS4 version runs at a 1080p/60fps resolution as opposed to the 720p/30fps on the Xbox One. Fans clearly want to enjoy, what they view as, next-gen quality visuals, and believe that you can get it on the PS4, not the Xbox One.
It’s only a week, and it’ll be interesting to see how the game sells in the coming weeks/months, but early signs point to the PS4 being the console of choice for Tomb Raider.
