Assassin's Creed 3
's PlayStation Vita companion piece, Assassin's Creed 3: Liberation
, has either shipped or
sold "close to 600,000" units, Ubisoft announced during a financial investors conference call this morning. We say "or" because, while the word "sold" was used, this terminology was also used to refer to Assassin's Creed 3
's 12 million shipped units
, and therefore the true nature of the statistic is unknown.
It's also unknown what percentage of Liberation
's volume is accounted for by its PlayStation Vita bundle
. We've reached out to Ubisoft for clarification and further information and will update when either is received.Update:
Ubisoft has confirmed with us that Assassin's Creed 3: Liberation
nearly 600,000 units. For clarification, the term "sell-in" refers to units shipped to retailers, while the term "sell-through" refers to units purchased from
retailers by customers. Thus, Ubisoft (or anyone else, for that matter) can say units have been "sold" when referring to either statistic.
