Assassin's Creed: Unity worldwide first week sales are in. The game has managed to sell 1,969,229 units for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC combined at retail. It was reported last week that the game managed to sell 780,100 units in the US. The game in Europe managed to sell a combined 766,694 units.

Ubisoft has been struck with criticism with Assassin's Creed: Unity due to all the issues reported on all the platforms. The developer has been hard at work trying to fix all the issues with the game.

I'd recommend mentioning black flag's first week numbers somewhere at the end of the article. Doing that in articles like these gives readers a reference point making it more interesting. (My humble opinion)

Gotta love that embargo, it allowed the sheep to make their purchases. But, the best part is that a lot of people didn't get it on day one. Some of those sales were from the xbox one bundle.

Only 2mil is going to really affect Ubisofts financials. Also, their lack of advertising Rogue (which was cheaper to make) was a really dumb move. over 200 million systems in the wild, and they couldn't break 500k in sales. That is rather pathetic.

I hope they learn from this fiasco, and actually deliver a better product next time.

PS4 is clearly dominating. No exclusive deals or marketing. Yet it sold more. The game is not perfect. But I am enjoying it in my PS4.

Who cares about this damn console war? We are so damn focused on if the PS4 or Xbox One is better, that we aren't holding developers accountable for busted ass games. This month has been a really terrible month for gaming, in terms of actually getting quality products, and people are still talking about some worthless pissing contest between the PS4 and Xbox One.

I own a PS4, just because I know it will have more RPGs in the long run, that is the only reason I got it. I can care less what is on the inside, I care about games.

I wish people would just realize that the PS4, Xbox One, and Wii U are all great systems, that do their jobs really well. Developers make the games, not the hardware, and we really need to be focusing on that. I wish there were "developer wars" not console wars.

The effect of screwing up is not inmendiate, the crappiness of this game will affect the next game.

Thanks to that Embargo. Granted, some people love the series so much, that they would buy it even if it wasn't playable. So, 2 million is understandable. If the review actually came out before the launch, I would still assume that it would sell around 1.5 million (the hard core fans, and the xbox one discounted bundle purchases).

Considering how Black Flag sold, and how much it cost to make this game, 2 million is a flop, and Ubisoft is going to feel this.

Hell, Black Flag sold over six million on the PS3, 360, Wii U, and another 3 million on the PS4 and Xbox One. Unity is a total failure.

Want to know how much of a failure Rogue is? Black Flag sold 210k on the Wii U alone. Bet they wish they included the Wii U this time around. Rouge would've done a little better then :P
