Battlefront has shipped some big figures since it’s release but since the publishers aren’t too keen to disclose actual sales figures it’s hard to say who’s bought it and where it’s being played. A third-party website that monitors server figures from noteworthy Electronic Arts games can help to throw some light on the situation though.

The website www.swbstats.com shows us that Battlefront has peaked at 183,329 players concurrently online over the last 24 hours with Xbox One having 106,401 players and PC having only 48,292 players concurrently online. The figures show that Xbox One and PC concurrent player totals combined still don’t add up to PS4’s total.

Now obviously there could be a number of contributing factors and these figures do not directly translate to sales but it does give a pretty good picture of who’s playing the game on which platform. Player Stats Network claims that it directly pulls the figures from EA’s servers, saying to NeoGAF that “we don’t calculate anything ourselves; these are direct numbers for every platform”. They have also monitored stats for games such as Battlefield and Need for Speed in the past.

No matter where the traffic is coming from however, the fact that Battlefront is pulling in over 300,000 concurrent users at any one time is still pretty impressive by anyone’s standards.

    Shows how ps4 players will play just about any garbage and PC and Xbone players actually think before buying campaignless, DLC ridden crap, that has no features as selling points, besides the fact that it’s a generic shooter that happens to have a Star Wars skin.

      I don’t think it has to do with just PS4 owners playing “garbage” as you state it. I think it has to do more with a larger install base. I bet if this game was to come out during the Xbox 360 life cycle, as exactly the same game, most of the players would be playing it on that as the 360 had the larger install base.

        That still doesn’t make it an acceptable game in any way. It’s still garbage

          And that’s fine. The game can be garbage. But your original statement made it seem like all 30 million people with PS4s bought the game. If the server numbers are to be true, only around 200,000 bought the game. There is no reason to trash on 30 million PlayStation users based off of what 200,000 bought.

            Good point. I’ll trash them on what they did buy. The PS4 itself, which is because consoles, themselves are jokes.
