Dayuuuum... Even if it has positive scores, sales is what matters the most. It's what keeps developers working on the series. They should have forced Japanese honcho "Shinji Mikami" to continue being the director. His name alone as director would have quadrupled the sales.

(I wonder how much were the PC and digital sales...)

Who cares about some retail store in the UK. Get back to me when it shows worldwide sales!

I'm still waiting to see how it does in total. Those were just physical sales for one day in the UK, right? (since it came out on Friday)

Either way it's a great game. I normally wouldn't even care about sales at all, but I hope it does well because I wouldn't mind seeing another entry sometime in the future.

Excellent. Pretty much guarantees it will be really cheap come Black Friday / Cyber Monday. 😈

That's unfortunate. My brother is playing it and he's enjoying it so far.

Well I hope it gains more ground, so you don't get it on those days. :)

Not surprised. The first one had lots of hype. This one is probably technically better, but also at the same time "more of the same" in a lot of ways.

I think you're going to see this trend with almost every new big release to varying degrees because of the increase in digital sales. There's no real solid and easily available data on digital sales, so if you're just going off retail numbers, there's almost certainly going to be a decline from previous years.

youve got to remember when reading such things that digital is very relevant and not tracked, physical for most games get dwarfed by digital sales ala destiny 2 and GTsport

The article doesn't state if they are comparing sales on just ps4 and xbox one. Don't forget evil within was also on 360 and ps3.
The only one who can fool me is me and i did it once and i don't know why but dammit he must have had it coming!
