Nice to see Football Manager Touch 2018 on the list.

Why hasn't Microsoft released a retail version of Minecraft for the Switch? The game has been on the Top 3 of the eShop since its release, and I'd be really surprised if it hasn't reached the million already. Why not releasing it retail? Are they too comfortable with a digital only version?



You know it deserves the GOTY.

Someone once told me that they probably are waiting for the Better Together update being available on Switch. But it is indeed weird since they launched the retail version of the New 3DS version almost right away.

Right? I don't understand that either.

For a Stealth release game, Football Manager seems to have done well.

Well, it's Europe and Football. It could have done way more if properly advertised.
