Weird that Thief is preordering higher on Xbone than PS4. Why?


shikamaru317 (on 18 February 2014)

A previous game in the Thief series released on the original Xbox, so having an established fanbase on the Xbox likely plays into it. If I remember correctly The Elder Scrolls Online had more preorders on Xbox One than PS4 when it was requested a few weeks ago, similarly The Elder Scrolls series has a longer history on the Xbox (Morrowing released o nthe Xbox and not thew PS2, Oblivion released a year earlier on the 360, etc.). Both might end up with higher sales on PS4 in the long run though, due to the larger install base.

The two trailers are cool but I would never buy a game based on just one trailer that's not even showing gameplay.
