Watch Dogs Was A Runaway Hit in Australia
Big hit down under.
In the end, Ubisoft’s brand new open world action adventure game IP Watch Dogs may have disappointed a lot of people, but the only reason a lot of people could be disappointed by it is because a lot of people bought it to begin with. While we have been aware of the game’s mammoth sales success for a while now, it appears that the game completely dominated the sales charts in Australia last year- it was so successful, in fact, that it sold more than even behemoths such as Grand Theft Auto V and FIFA 15.
Of course, even Watch Dogs could not dethrone the actual king from its seat. Yes, Call of duty: Advance Warfare managed to top the charts even in Australia, and fend off all of its strong competition.
You can see the full sales charts below:
- Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare (360, XBO, PS4, PS3, PC)
- Watch Dogs (PS4, XBO, 360, PS3, PC, NWU)
- FIFA 15 (360, PS4, XBO, PS3, Wii, 3DS, PSV)
- Grand Theft Auto V (PS4, XBO, 360, PS3)
- Minecraft (360, PS3, XBO, PS4)
- Destiny (XBO, PS4, 360, PS3)
- Far Cry 4 (PS4, XBO, 360, PS3, PC)
- Call Of Duty: Ghosts (360, PS3, XBO, PS4, NWU, PC)
- Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag (360, XBO, PS4, PS3, NWU, PC)
- Battlefield 4 (XBO, PS4, 360, PS3, PC)
On the whole, it was a mixed year for the Australian gaming market-
Overall Software sales suffered a decline of 5.3% from 2013, while PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Wii U, and 3DS sales all experienced growth.
Poor Vita, though.
