Kind of expected, I mean really expected. Yet like the Brawl drop, only bashers and fanboys will pretend this means something.



A flashy-first game is awesome when it comes out. A great-first game is awesome forever.

Well, there are two camps and there aren't divided by fanboyism. Camp A says it's was the most front loaded game in history so the drop off will be significant. Camp B believes it will have Nintendog's legs...all 4 of them.

The drop was kind of expected, but it did not expect the drop to be so severe.

GT 5 p is keeping its sales quite high (I'm not sure how widespread the bundle is, amazon are out though) so I would expect GTA IV to keep its sales up like that for a long time.



Around the Network

Kinda expected. Halo 3 dropped 87% in Europe from 1st to second week.

You can't compare it to titles such as MK, which dropped 21% or Wii Fit which dropped 45ish. Fun fact; Gears of War had less a drop than Wii Fit in %.

That is VGChartz LONGEST review. And it's NOT Cute Kitten DS

The main suprise is that it is still quite short of stock (certainly was during much of the launch week)



The drop is heavy due to most people really wanting the game right now, actually getting it right now. So then it comes to those willing to wait, which we'll see in the next months.

Sold out last week. New stock may have come in since then. Might not, but being sold out doesn't really account for drops.
