Forums - Latest Charts - UK Charts Week Ending November 14 2015

A 180K release for TR 2013 to a 50K release for Tomb Raider this year. MASSIVE drop, the reasons why is obvious. SE pretty much fucked this franchise for the long run. probably one of the dumbest deals i seen in the video game industry.

serves SE right for being money whores.

TR didn't do too bad when faced off against Fallout 4. Which was a massive mistake.

However if it released on a week with no competition and still did 50k then it would be straight bad sales.

Fallout did great.
Cod drop wasn't that much.
TR didn't do as bad as I thought.
Good week overall

They only managed 1/3 of the reboots launch.  Just how bad did you expect them to do?

10k on 360 and 25k on x1.



A bit low for ROTR. Even if the PS4 vversion had launched at the same time, it would have flopped as well against Halo 5, Call of Duty, Fallout 4 and Star Wars coming next week



Around the Network

Good to see Legacy of the Void selling just over a million since launch which bodes well for Blizz.

There were 14 million Xbox 360s and PS3s then, compared to 2 million Xbox Ones now, and it has tougher competition. i think it will have good legs.

Well if you put it into that perspective that it was available on  2 platforms an done of the 2 platforms life has ended.

Yeah but for big AAA games, the last gen consoles only account for a fraction of the overall sales. COD now sells way way better on PS4 and XBO, despite there being way more PS3/360.

RIP Tomb Raider.

What a terrible situation for those developers. It's not a total flop, but I hope that paycheck was big SE.

If SE does the right thing with the PC and PS4 releases it can still sell good on those platforms. Launch it with all DLC, and if possible a PS4 bundle could sell very well. The PS4's installbase will be well over 40million by the time RotTR launches on PS4.


Not sure about that since it's still competing with other games when it comes out PS4. 

Plus, gamers won't forget.
