Didn't expect MGS to do that well. Shame Titanfall was not No2.

Usual drop off for Titanfall then. Wonder what Infamous numbers were.

Infamous at 1 as expected.

Surprised that Ground Zeroes sells more on ONE than PS3.

Good hold for Titanfall.

Dark Souls II dropping quick, to be expected.

Plants v Zombies showing good legs

Minecraft 360 is insane.

Yes, Titanfall hant dropped like a stone as many predicted.

Infamous should be biggest opening of 2014 I reckon, beating Titanfall.  Cant see how that doesnt happen to be honest, given install base differential.

Urgh!! Disappointing. A generic shooter still selling more than the remaster of one of the best JRPG EVAH!!
