The 60% figure was stated by a big publisher some time ago. dont remmeber whitch. Found this report though, showing more like 40-45% for consoles: http://www.cnbc.com/2016/01/26/digital-gaming-sales-hit-record-61-billion-in-2015-report.htmlMC1980 said:Ehm, that 60% is not true. Not sure about the PC one, I wouldn't be surprised if it was actually that high in some regions. But the console one is definitely way too much. EA's investor meating a while back let it slip that digital on consoles was around 20-25%. And that was like, what, less than 12 months ago? It's physically impossible for it to be 60% by now. Atmost it could be 30%.Strazdas said:Im with activision on this one, VGChartz is the cancer of internet statistics and should never be used as a claim to anything. For one they completely ignore the digital distribution which is 93% of PC and over 60% of console market nowadays.
Dont get me wrong, i think pre-orders should not happen. as in at all it should not be a possibility. But this false information does not help that at all.
