Quite similar list...
HZD bein exclusive higher than GTA V (it's surprising) and FH3 managing a top 5.

And just a change of positions on top3 for PS360 gen

As mentioned in source link this only applies to one retailer - MVideo, which has 40%+ marketshare for gaming software and hardware in Russia.

While I believe that the global picture is pretty much the same you still should take it with a grain of salt. MVideo recently reported that One X sold in Russia 40% more than original Xbox One at launch. I don't think that it is true for an entire Russian market because it is two times more expensive and the fact that it sold less than original Xbox One at launch everywhere else.

Not surprised at all. Russian gaming market is dominated by PC so people only buy consoles to play exclusives and probably games like FIFA or GTA.



 

I believe One X sold better. You know, in first year of this generation Xbox was under huge shitstorm in Russia. This shitstorm was much bigger than everything about No Man's Sky, Battlefront 2 and Andromeda combined.
PS: sorry for my poor grammar.

You know, probably One X could have sold better but I think the main reason behind would be not the shitstorm but the fact that it launched almost one year later than in the US. So die-hard Xbox fans already bought it in US or EU. But still despite all that the console launch price was 20999, not 39999 like One X, so it should be really hard for One X to sell better.



 

I must have a look in a few game shops when I visit Russia this summer.

Bf1 a big hit. Probably because of the Russian expansions. Horizon did superb.

Unfortunately there isn’t any game shops here except for a small local ones. Games usually have a section in big consumer electronics retailers.
