I spent several minutes in the shower this morning trying to think of a snarky way to start this news story, but instead of being mean I’ll just come out with it: in total global numbers, Farming Simulator 2013 has sold a good 55,000 more copies than the top-selling console (Xbox 360) of Medal of Honor: Warfighter. It’s almost not even funny (but it’s kinda funny).
A glance at the VGChartz metrics as of October 27 will show that Europe is the main reason for this, as the former game sold gangbusters across the pond whereas Warfighter struggled to keep up. It’s also important to remember that these are very different games targeted at very different demographics, and it doesn’t imply any quality or lack thereof for either game. Additinally, combining the numbers of both consoles for Warfighter means that it technically sold more overall. I haven’t played Farming Simulator 2013 myself, and haven’t played enough of Warfighter to form a fair opinion, but you’ll be seeing a review of the latter here soon.
