The Crew Downloaded 3 Million Times on Xbox One via Games With Gold

Witnesses 15-fold increase in recurrent spending during free period.

the crew wild run

Ubisoft’s The Crew may have fizzled out after release but it found some significant new life through the Games With Gold program on Xbox Live. It was available for free on Xbox One and Ubisoft CFO Alain Corre revealed during a recent earnings call that the online racer was downloaded three million times.

Corre noted that the Games With Gold release had provided a “huge boost” in recurrent spending with a 15-fold increase from June 16th to July 15th when it was free. How significant were these figures? The total amount was more than a third of the revenue generated by the game on Xbox One during its lifetime. Corre noted that it was, “A great achievement for a title released 19 months ago.”

Which is funny considering how badly The Crew was received and how it went about addressing its issues since release. Even though a new expansion was released with Wild Run, offering improved visuals and lots of new content, the game wasn’t relevant before coming to Games With Gold. Maybe it’s a sign of things to come for the franchise? We’ll find out in the future.

      “theres nothing else to play on the system”
      Really? can you prove that? Because I can make you a whole list of games thats on the system.
      Whats that? you where talking about exclusives? Grasping at Straws at its finest.

    • legacy

      Please don’t make yourself look bad

    • -youjustgotburned-

      Thats all you got to say?
      Well then I take that as you have nothing to back up your claim.

    • legacy

      Put up that list, and i guarantee ill top it. Waiting on you whenever you ready.

    • -youjustgotburned-

      Top it how? I am just going to list all the games on the Xbox One which will debunk your claim.
      Wait where you going to list something that wasnt on the Xbox One?

    • legacy

      Exclusives, it makes no sense to list games that came out on both systems exclusives only.now please make the list or did you change your mind

    • -youjustgotburned-

      Just as I thought…lets go back to my first reply I made to you:
      “Whats that? you where talking about exclusives? Grasping at Straws at its finest.”
      So predictable.

      It makes a lot of sense because that’s why they where made for the system so people could have a lot to play on it. Your “only list exclusives” card is weak and straw grasping at its finest.

    • legacy

      Wow you xbots really are slow,exclusives is what separate the two there are no exclusives on xb1 and all the multi plats play better on the ps4. You on damage control right now cause there is nothing to list. Don’t worry ill start it off for you

    • -youjustgotburned-

      “there are no exclusives on xb1”

      Please tell me something that I already haven’t told you. Seems the one slow here is you. You are making excuses and grapsing at straws.

      You claim “there is nothing else to play on the system” is a lie because its a fact that the system does have games to play on.

      Some of the games that are on the Xbox One and not on the PS4 so in that sense and by your words it separates them regardless if they are on PC…

      http://gematsu.com/exclusives/xbox-one

      and just about every other game on the system that has nothing to play….

      Of course you’er done because you lost the argument and mentioning PS games (predictable) when we are talking about Xbox makes it clear you had nothing else to add. Thanks for being part of this conversation, have a good day.

    • legacy

    • legacy
    • kma99

      Lol what does that have to do with anything? Lol you listing Playstation games is supposed to prove that xbox doesn’t? You can’t even provide a decent counter point to your first lie. You’re still a liar and you’re not even going to play let alone buying half of that garbage on that list. Lol you even lie to yourself idiot lol.

    • legacy

      Peace buddy,have a nice day

    • kma99

      Come back when you grow up.

    • Doggystyle

      LOL.

    • -youjustgotburned-

      Not only is it a fail but predictable. I knew what he was going to say way before he said it that’s how bad his damage control was.

    • legacy

      What you two girls talking about Lol

    • -youjustgotburned-

      Our conversation is over for today, you tried and failed. Better luck next time.

      Now be gone, go in peace or be done as you said various times now.

      I will be the one to end it here and it seems you need to have the last word to feel better about yourself so go at it. Goodnight

    • legacy

      Later loser

    • kma99

      This would be the same idiot running in here and crying bloody murder if a fan of another console said what he just did. He would copy and paste it and run to neogaf to chuckle with the sony drones over there. They are just ad bad as the people they complain about yet can’t even see it for themselves.

    • legacy

      Its over buddy go home, go get some coochie or something

    • kma99

      Tough talk from a sony punk. So your mommy know you’re messing with her computer

    • Doggystyle

      What research? Everybody, everywhere, is reporting the Xbox One is a failure.

    • -youjustgotburned-

      Besides I know the Xbox One doesnt have true exclusives anymore, they are console exclusives or Microsoft exclusives as some are calling them now but that still doesnt take away the fact that people do have a lot to play.

    • Doggystyle

      LOL, you’re absolutely right because non exclusives are selling better on Sony consoles, and these guys know that already.

    • Tomaterrrx

      Lol it does make sense to put multi-plats on the list. If you can play it on an Xbox One, then those are games playable on Xbox One, right? People don’t buy a console JUST for exclusives. You said at first that Xbox One has no games (which is wrong) so why does it matter if those games are exclusives or not? In the end all those games are playable on XB1. Stop changing goal posts, dude.

      Btw Xbox One has a total of 836 games according to wikipedia.

    • legacy

      Lol thats funny,and the ps4 got over 1000 and counting. Xbox1 will be irrelevant this time next year so enjoy it while you still can

    • Tomaterrrx

      And? PS4 has more games so what’s your point? I didn’t say it doesn’t. Funny how you said the Xbox One has no games yet I just told it has 800+, so you resort to PS4. This article has nothing to do with PS4. Your excuses are really lame, mate.

    • legacy

      Wow its nothing but retards in here, enjoy your day and your system I’m done with this.and please don’t respond back. Peace

    • Tomaterrrx

      Fine, resort to meaningless insults. You’ve lost.

    • efnet

      seriously? you dudes are getting seriously lame now .

  • Mr Xrat

    Puts it into perspective when MS talks about 49 million XBL subscribers.

    • sgt_hammertime

      yep a decent number for an almost 2 year old game which had a horrible reception to boot.

    • Doggystyle

      cause they aint got no other games to play?

    • sgt_hammertime

      Has nothing to do with other games to play both platforms have many games to play. But in regards to this, maybe people don’t want to spent $60 and rather to grab the game free and spend $15 on DLC. Works out much cheaper and still get to enjoy the game for what it is.

    • Nintengods

      With the only 5 million that downloaded Rocket League on PSN. It’s embarrassing how bad value for money the xboner and PS Bore have been as it is embarrassing how people shill for them 24/7. No one even downloaded Hardware Rivals

      Meanwhile on Wii U. Free online and a Humble Bundle every few months. The kicking $ony and M$ got from Nintendo is only going to get even bigger when the NX is launched. I can’t wait for the bitter $DF tears to come like a waterfall, just like 2006

    • Tomaterrrx

      And 20 million of those actually have an Xbox One, birdbrain.
