From Chart-Track

There are three new entries in the Top 3 this week, led by Sony’s ‘Detroit: Become Human’ which is the 10th different PlayStation exclusive title to reach No1 so far this year.

Microsoft’s new format exclusive ‘State of Decay 2’ has to settle for a debut at No2, while ‘Dark Souls Remastered’ enters at No3. The retailer promotion on ‘FIFA 18’ continues this week – despite slipping 2 places to No4, sales rise by 59%. God of War’s five week run at the top is over as it falls to No5, ahead of ‘Far Cry 5’ at No6 and a heavily price promoted ‘Overwatch: Game of the Year Edition’ which bounces from No40 to No7, boosted by some retailers dropping it to £15. There is one other new title to make the Top 40 this week: ‘Space Hulk Deathwing’ debuting at No19.

Overall a good week for Sony I would say, and Detroit is amazing :D



Making an indie game : Dead of Day!

God of Wars run at number one ends with another PlayStation exclusive taking number one...

Not that Detroit will stay there.



So umm... where's the charts?



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

Detroit is no where as big a seller as Heavy Rain, but sounds like it sold more than Beyond based on digital, I would say thats disappointing, but I would say this will probably have better word of mouth/legs.

Developed by Quantic Dream, sales of the game is roughly in-line with the performance of its last title, 2013's Beyond Two Souls. When you factor in the expected increase in digital download sales (which isn't included here) it's likely the game surpassed the performance of that title - although not by a huge margin.

However, it's well behind sales of 2010's Heavy Rain, which sold almost four times as many copies (in a box) than Detroit: Become Human.

There's another new game at No.2, as well, in the form of State of Decay 2. The Xbox One exclusive was very close to Detroit, with fewer than 4,000 boxed sales separating the two.

Selling better than Beyond is good enough.

The Switch needs something. It's been very quiet



YNWA

The only thing Nintendo can do at this point is to bring wii u and 3ds games or lower the price of the console. Games with the quality and complexity of Zelda botw and Mario Odissey take 2, 3 or 4 years to make.
