Ubisoft: Watch Dogs Is The Industry's Best-Selling New IP Ever

Ubisoft announced that Watch Dogs has sold-through more than 4 million copies in its first week, "positioning it as the best-selling new IP at launch across the video game industry".

Having already broken sales records in the first 24 hours following its release, Watch Dogs is now the company’s best-selling game ever in week one.

“With such strong sales momentum and positive feedback from gamers, Watch Dogs has positioned itself as the must-have game of the moment” said Tony Key, senior vice president of sales and marketing. “We’re really proud of this achievement, and are confident that the Watch Dogs brand has a promising future.”

Watch Dogs is set in Chicago and lets players become Aiden Pearce, a brilliant hacker seeking justice following a violent family tragedy. Pearce hacks into Chicago’s Central Operating System (ctOS), which controls the city’s infrastructure (security cameras, traffic lights, public transportation and more) as well as key data on the city’s residents.

made up my mind ages ago

This game is quite interesting in that it really has people who love it and people who hate it, no real in-betweeners. So far the gameplay footage I have seen looks pretty bad, So I will purchase it once the price drops in a years time. Fear that it cannot meet the hype

hmmm

i pirated this game and i still don't like it. It held my attention for 2hours..then got repetitive. Uninstalled. very disappointed.

I don't get how people can

I don't get how people can say that the game runs poorly on AMD hardware, I have an AMD processor and video card and the game runs buttery smooth even when recording with fraps. The game had some AI flaws but otherwise I had 0 issues with it. Very fun game.

If you're the kind of moron to give 0 out of 10 on Metacritics (one of the most moronic act someone can do on the net), at least don't reveal it.

pants

what gives with this crap? best selling game ever? with most customer satisfaction? does that include all the pc owners that have been whored due to this games poor coding that favors nvidia and says fu to amd users. I really really hope they get fined for unfair competition because its long overdue

No Fines

There won't be any fines, digital business is a monopoly. MS, Nvidia and all the other big driver/OS makers, supporters, all have an Oligopoly, which is essentially a Monopoly. It's 'illegal' but not, because they have the money and we the consumers refuse to take a stand, they have no limitations because everyone at the top is making big bucks. Legality is a matter of financial claims, not right and wrong, simply put there is more money to be claimed by not viewing Nvidia or Microsofts actions as illegal, so their actions are treated as legal.
