PlayStation will go over 50% digital before PS5 arrives. I wonder what Sony will do? I know the gaming community would hate the idea of even an optional PS5 with no physical media bay, but why add additional size, cost, and weight that more than half the userbase is never going to use?

Great month overall. Spider-Man did incredible. Destiny did surprisingly well. Shadow of the Tomb Raider sales are just a mediocre as its marketing. Not sure what happened, I love the 1st two, but Square did not make this one look exciting or important in the least. Felt like a spin off the way they handled things.



Stop hate, let others live the life they were given. Everyone has their problems, and no one should have to feel ashamed for the way they were born. Be proud of who you are, encourage others to be proud of themselves. Learn, research, absorb everything around you. Nothing is meaningless, a purpose is placed on everything no matter how you perceive it. Discover how to love, and share that love with everything that you encounter. Help make existence a beautiful thing.

Dude, no way, having 2 skus just to save maybe 10$ on manufacturing cost is completely pointless. Maybe PS6 will be free from CDs as physical media will likely be an anchor in next generation because of low storage and speed.

Haha my prediction of fortnite will be a failure on mobile is becoming truer, people don't wanna play console/pc games on mobile phones, the controls just don't work. Neither Fortnite or PUBG in top 10, what is Microsoft and Michael Pachter gonna do now?

And people thought bringing console streamed games to mobile was a good idea :) haha

Agreed. PC and console games rarely work with touch and tilt controls.

Though regarding to bold, I don't think their intention is to make us play streamed console games with phone controls.

I don't think super data is very reliable so we should just take these as loose estimates
