Was not expecting this. AC Odyssey sales were down by 25% in the UK compared to Origins last year, and they seemed to be down in the US as well, based on Amazon and Gamestop's online charts. Guess continental Europe sales were up by a large margin over Origins? Also, I assume console digital was way up this year.
It appears to me, based on numbers we see from time to time, and based on common sense, that digital sales are rapidly increasing as a percentage of overall sales. Unfortunately, that makes it a hell of a lot harder to track sales numbers independent of what Publishers tell us.
