Game Overview

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is an open world, action RPG developed by CD Projekt RED for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. It is the final entry in The Witcher series, concluding the story of the witcher, Geralt of Rivia.

The ones who sought to use Geralt are now gone and now he seeks to embark on a new and personal mission, whilst the world order itself is coming to a change. The mysterious and otherworldly army known as the Wild Hunt invades the Northern Kingdoms, leaving only blood soaked earth and fiery ruin in its wake; and it seems the Witcher is the key to stopping their cataclysmic rampage.

On second thought the userbase
difference between the PS4 and One is
the reason for these results.

Thanks to Europe that this sold well
compare to the One so there is nothing
to laugh at.

@fireburn - Oh, you just wanna laugh and
mock? Okay... grow up.

Bottom line,
this game appealed to Sony fans. Even
many that likely didn't play Witcher 2.
The dominance in Europe is why the PS4
version did exceptionally well.
Basically, I'm just looking at why it
happened.

It wasn't the exclusive irony, but in
addition to the fact that you seem to
ignore, the marketing and the hard
bundles, it was ironic, and
embarassing.
Hard bundle + Marketing +
footage at E3.
Obviously it was never
gonna sell as much as ps4, but a 3:1
ratio is quite laughable.

@fireburn - Witcher 3 was so hyped that
it gained an even bigger audience than
Witcher 2 on 360 had.

For example,
many people that played Oblivion on
PS360 never touched Morrowind on OG
Xbox.

Hence, much of this Witcher 3
audience on 8th gen consoles is new to
Witcher. Hence, there isnt much irony.
