Clarification on sales numbers?

Post by alex0809 » Mon Feb 25, 2013 10:53 pm

This is to the BA devs, I read on Pockettactics that BA on IPad outsold PC by 5:1 and first of all: congratulations to your success, you showed that on Touch-devices it is still possible to sell more "serious" games :mrgreen:

Now I am wondering a bit, though: does that really mean five times more iPad versions were sold IN TOTAL compared to PC or does it mean that "current sales (per month or whatever) are in the ratio 5:1". Because I can't believe you sold so few copies on PC compared to iPad? That would almost make me worry for the future of your games on PC :oops:

We've sold a decent number on PC and Mac. We've sold a lot on iOS.

On a daily basis we sell more than 10 to 1 iPad to PC. Overall its about 5 to 1, not counting retail sales on PC.

Don't worry - we plan to continue producing PC games :)

Hi Iain. Is BA your only iOS title? If I may ask, does the 10:1 ratio bear out with other games in your catalogue, or was that specific to BA?

Looking forward to your response. :)
