Believe it or not, but at one store chain in Brazil they were commenting on how RDR2 didn't made the same strong sales as GoW and Spider-Man. Sure that may be something that long term will be reversed even on their store, but it's curious enough to mention. That may have something to do with the fact that Sony 1st party games launch for 200 (and you can find for 179 on greyshops) against 250 of RDR2, plus exclusives generating hype and all.
