Until Dawn, new cool horror game : )

the game of the year is coming: Metal Gear Solid 5! Next week its exciting : D



Thought Disney Infinity would do better and be at No 1. Guess it will have legs though, unlike the games above it.

Odd week for X1 software. Gears on top, but third party titles on the system not so hot.



Well, that's another #1 for an XB1 exclusive, especially for a remaster. And this time with some same week competition. Congrats to MS.



Around the Network

Gears of War sold more than Disney Infinity 3.0 on 4 systems, 2 of them at 4 and 5? Wow. Curious what the actual number is.



huh, good opening for Gears. Beat even some multiplat games. Dishonored looks like a flop though.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Happy to see Until Dawn do well. Top 10 needs a shake up from all these established franchises and action games.



Great result for Gears



Shame we didn't get any hints to let us know what actual numbers were this week. Disappointing.

Grats to Gears. Hopefully Until Dawn did alright, but it's difficult to tell without any numbers.

Disney seems low, but will have holiday legs like most younger-skewed titles do.

There are some notable gaps between PS4 and XB1 multi-plats this week though. Dishonored 7 -> 21 being the most obvious.

Also, was there a PS4 bundle this week? The Last of Us, Minecraft & God of War up, LittleBigPlanet still hanging around as well.
