What is reader review?

Good legs and with the shortages I expect digital to be higher than 50%

Stock issues of Spiderman in japan still? Still doing far better than I expected.



Zzz
Hopefully next week bring something new.
Great performance of Spidey and that pretty much it.
Switch and PS4 are pretty low.

Basically user reviews. These are magazines, right? I know for sure Famitsu is at least, so that's reviews from their readers.



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

Low everything. Switch hardware is still close to 40k, so that is good I guess.

Slow weeks. Spiderman did very little for PS4 hardware which is surprising.

Torna is logical since most of it is probably been sold digital. It was very unclear if the retail copy was an empty box or not.

Spiderman is likely passing Horizon next week. Great job! :>

Also, next weeks chart should be more interesting than this. Lots of games that could show up:
Fifa 19 [NSW, PS4]
Musou Orochi 3 [NSW, PS4]
World Ends With You [NSW]
Labyrinth of Refrain: Coven of Dusk [NSW, PS4]
Valkyria Chronicles 4 [NSW]

A lot of those games won't even reach 10k first week honestly.

Well that has nothing to do with what I said though since it's not really required to hit 10K to show up.

And for the record, what games do you expect to hit 10k out of those?



A question that may be hard to answer: can anyone with enough knowledge of the region say whether the earthquake has had a marked impact on the Japanese market and if it would still be felt this far on or not? The timing of the overall dip in sales lately seems to coincide but that may be pure coincidence since this is a slower period.



Ok, Xeno 2 expansion pass might have cannibalized the physical sales of Torna, although I do think it was just a limited physical edition in the end.

I think it's Musou Orochi 4. Also, Labyrinth of Refrain is just releasing in Japan? I have it for some weeks now. Did it release earlier in the West than Japan? And Valkyria Chronicles only on Switch. Isn't it also on PS4? Or did it already release for PS4?

It released earlier on the PS4.
