The best summer of all time, for all GAMER:
"The Last of Us 2" in June, "Ghost of Tsushima" in July !!
2020-Game of the Year, currently: Persona 5 Royal, FF7 Remake

So any idea what percentage of sales Japan makes up compared to the rest of Asia? Hard to judge vgc tracking based on this due to everything other than Japan being grouped in RoW.



LTD: PS4 - 125m, Switch - 110m, XBO - 51m

2020: PS4 - 9m, Switch - 22.5m, XBO - 2.5m, PS5 - 4.5m, XBX - 2.8m

I am especially happy for these great games:

- Yakuza 6: The Song of Life (Sega)
- Uncharted: The Lost Legacy (Naughty Dog / SIE)
- Persona 5 (Atlus)
- Dragon Quest XI (Square Enix)
- Horizon: Zero Dawn (Sony)
- NieR: Automata (Square Enix)
- Nioh (Koei Tecmo)
- Summer Lesson: Allison Snow (Bandai Namco)

Looks like FIFA is up if 18 got 500k at the first attempt while 17 took a year to get it. I got the HK version so I helped as well

Really gotta wonder how big FIFA could be in Asia if EA were able to get the Chinese Super League licence.



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

Would be happier with Gran Turismo listed there =[



duduspace11 "Well, since we are estimating costs, Pokemon Red/Blue did cost Nintendo about $50m to make back in 1996"

FIFA 17 could be at 900k, both games received an award for at least selling 500k but I admit that it's very impressive for FIFA 18.
