In the week of “Black Friday” the only major new product was Battlefield V, but the data on the starting sales show an unpleasant picture for EA.
Sales of new items, compared with sales of Battlefield 1, fell by 63%, and even with the continued growth of the influence of digital stores, a decrease in results is inevitable. However, in its debut week, the military shooter managed to show more successful sales than Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and Fallout 76. In the weekly chart, Battlefield V took fourth place, and the distribution between PS4 and PC was unknown on the Xbox One.
Sales of the leader of the week in the face of FIFA 19 due to discounts in sales and sets with PS4 increased by 177%. Followed by Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 – thanks to the stock weekly growth amounted to 360%. The top three with a 36% growth closes Red Dead Redemption 2, for which there were no discounts, only the bundles with PS4. The news of the previous week, Spyro Reignited Trilogy and Fallout 76, dropped to ninth and seventh places, respectively – the weekly drop was 62% and 51%. Bethesda game managed to reduce sales decline due to discounts.
The best-selling console in the week of “Black Friday” was the PlayStation 4.
