There are at least 2 teams working on assassin's Creed at any given moment and even then they've still started taking gap years. You're not getting a new Zelda or any open world game every 2 years.

    I am always amazed when people use numbers they don't understand. There are 37M PS4 sold in Europe according to VGC. 6M in UK, 6M in Germany and 5M in France, so these for a total of 17M, around 46%. There are 21M 3DS sold in Europe according to VGC. 4M in UK, 4M in Germany and 5.5M in France for a total of 13.5M, around 64.3%. There are 11.4M X1 sold in Europe according to VGC. 4.8M in UK,...

    Worldwide Charts Yearly Total - December 8th

    in Latest Charts on 13 January 2019

    Europe was a late market. Nintendo was pretty silent here, while Sega had adds on TV. Also, gaming is still seen as "not healthy" for many people over 40 years old. When the war was between Sega and Nintendo, both were pretty equal in Europe. So when Sega fell, Sony took the spot easily. Now, if you add the type of games, european gamers like a lot adventure-type games like GOW, RDR2, Tomb...

The numbers   In 2013 the PS4 sold 1682K in Europe. UK (565K)+FR (260K)+ GE (278K) = 1103K (579K for the rest) or ~66% of european's sales.   So these 3 combined makes for ~66% of Europe's...

    So. 1) If a market increases A LOT MORE than GE+UK+FR, it doesn't count, "because reasons". 2) If a market increasses while GE+UK+FR decreases, it doesn't count, "because reasons". And yes, a ratio of ratio is a stupid metric. A growth of 2% isn't "2 times better" than a growth of 1%. You refuse to understand this, Any growth would be infinetely better than no growth.
