Killzone is doing spectacularly well, didn't know it was so popular. Nice charts!

Just wishing VG could make an update. 16 days without charts..

It's bundled quite a bit here, that's why it is so high.

Thanks to bundles.



 

                          

 

Killzone is a beast...having a great MP mode really did the game some good
Ghosts, Fifa and BF is actually sustaining better than I thought it would
Grand Theft Auto is stilll huge and it clearly looks look no game is going to compete with it for a LONG while
Gran Turismo though...anyway this late in the gen and that too without any hype or marketing its not that bad I guess



Minecraft X360 doesn't surprise me - it was 9th best selling RETAIL game in US in 2013.

Being bundled did the game good.

Has anybody heard how Minecraft is doing on PS3?

Passed a million sales a couple of weeks ago going by the leaderboards. The leaderboards only go up to a million though so you can't tell past that.  



                                

Next gen rises, even Mario 3D World.

Since someone asked about Minecraft, we know it was the best selling game on PSN by far ("absolutely dominated") in December. It's Minecraft, it's obviously selling a lot. Would be nice to get an update from Mojang soon, and also to hear about the next gen+Vita versions.



Makes me wonder how PS4/One versions of Minecraft will do. Assuming they hit retail, of course.

Good thing we have the media create/famitsu chart arriving in a couple of days to alleviate that depressing UK chart.

I find Japan's charts far more depressing where everything is 3DS related. Here you see more consoles and games coexisting at least.

Well. It's also about the numbers, altough we cant see them you kind of know in the back of your mind that they're very low (judging from UK numbers on VGChart) compared to bigger markets.


huh? there are only two markets bigger...
