A recent report found on Gamasutra.com shows industry analyst, OTX’s Gameplan Insights, declaring that 360 owners are currently defecting to the PlayStation 3 for their multiplatform titles. The report indicates that starting with Assassin’s Creed 2 and Modern Warfare 2, a higher percentage of PlayStation 3 dual-console owners are purchasing the game than ever before.
OTX analyst, Nick Williams, says that 15% of owners picking up Assassin’s Creed II on the PlayStation 3 owned the original assassination title on the Xbox 360 instead. These figures are pulled from the company’s intent to purchase charts and can be taken with a grain of salt or accuracy depending on who you are.
On the counter side, apparently only 7% of individuals picking up the title for the 360 purchased the original on the PlayStation 3. This leaves over a 200% differential between the two (My math sucks, but I’m sure this is right).
Though numbers for Modern Warfare 2 were not released, Williams states, “The PS3 seems poised to shift the ratio of Xbox 360 to PS3 sales for most major multiplatform releases in its favor among dual owners.”
