We don’t have a transparent indicator of what the long-term gross sales of those games have been, however new gamers have been coming in at a strong price. Microsoft reported that two million gamers had gotten into Horizon Four on launch week, so now we’ve bought one other 5 million in only a handful of months.
While we don’t know what number of of these gamers are on PC, it’s a little bit of a moot level given the game’s cross-play and cross-buy assist – and as our PC performance review signifies, it’s a superb port.
