A new report on the digital games market has revealed interesting details on sales. This includes the sales performance of Rise of the Tomb Raider PC compared to the console version of the game.

The report, put together by SuperData looks at the Worldwide digital games market in January 2016. With Rise of the Tomb Raider PC being a big release, and an interesting one because of its Xbox timed exclusivity. The report revealed:

“The newly-released PC version of Rise of the Tomb Raider surprises at release. As one of Square Enix’s 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 forRise 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.”

So as many of us wondered, there was a difference between PC and Xbox sales. As you can see from the quote above, Rise of the Tomb Raider PC sold three times as many units in its first month than it did for Xbox One. While it may be good news in terms of sales, this is not a good sign for Xbox One.

What we’ll have to wait for now is when the game finally releases on PlayStation 4. When we know how well it sells on that platform, then compare it between the other two, we’ll see where the game was most popular. Based on these results it appears it may not be on Xbox One.
