Ubisoft Make Considerably More Sales Off Of The PlayStation 4 Than The Xbox One

Ubisoft are one of the biggest publishers out there. Their games sell millions and they are pretty much only surpassed by EA and Activision in size and even that is debatable.

E3: New South Park Game Focused On Super Heroes Coming From Ubisoft

South Park: The Stick of Truth was a monster hit last year, but the production was marred by intense problems.
