Digital sales to show positive dynamics in January
25 February, 2016
News

Tracking firm Superdata presented its breakdown of digital sales for past January. Games seem to be doing great according to the report, generating $6.3 billion in a month.

Every game category except social games and MMOs showed positive dynamics. Two categories were the strongest ones: PC’s digital sales growth reached a point of 33 percent, console games number increased by 30 percent. Gamers tend to buy more digital versions than physical counterparts. For example, top grossing console games by revenue were Call of Duty: Black Ops III, Fifa 16 and Grand Theft Auto V, while top PC titles were Starcraft II, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, and Fallout 4.

One of the suprises was the success of Lara Croft’s PC launch.

As one of Square Enix’ most visible franchises, the Tomb Raider franchise performed in January, receiving both strong industry recognition and benefitting from a seasonal lull of triple A games. Initial sales numbers on digital console for Rise of the Tomb Raider were soft, due to sharing its release date with Fallout 4 and its exclusivity to Xbox One. The game sold almost three times as many units on PC than it did on console during its first month.
