Digital sales on ps4 would blow digital on switch out of the water.
Probably. But is it enough to offset the physical numbers? As we hear numbers from time to time it seems digital is closing in on 50% on PS4 (depending on the title though) and for Switch is more around 25%. Octopath Traveler and Monster Hunter World seem to be outliers with bigger than usual digital numbers.
As an example (that doesn't say much, as digital ratio strongly differs between titles): if we apply the assumptions only to PS4-titles, FIFA would jump to the fourth place (God of War would be higher still) place in the current charts. But applying the assumption about digital to Switch titles too, then Taiko Drum master, Mario Tennis and Captain Toad would surely be overtaking it again, while Sonic Mania and Super Mario would be pretty close (I would need a calculator to see who is in front, and for assumed digital rates it is not worth to calculate it so detailed). Same for God of War, if we also apply digital for Switch-titles Octopath is surely at top and Mario Kart to close to call. God of War would be placed probably around second or third place. That's better, but it doesn't mean PS4-titles are just dominating the charts. The TOP 10 would contain seven Switch-titles instead of nine.
Still, digital numbers would be sweet. I really like to see how indies like Stardew Valley and Hollow Knight stack up. For that we would need digital.Last edited by Mnementh - on 29 August 2018
