Nice. How did Famitsu got it's hand on digital numbers?

But yeah, digital seems a bit strange at times. Splatoon 2, a game you play online, has a much lower digital ratio than Mario Kart 8, which you can very well play solo.

That doesn't really seem strange to me. Getting a game physically or digitally makes no difference to playing online, but it does make a difference to portability since it's easier to carry digital games with you. And since online focused games are harder to play while moving around due to connection issues going for games you can play solo digitally for portability makes sense.

Ah, that's a good point. I didn't thought of that, it sounds reasonable.

Around the Network

Splatoon almost 100k in a Summer month. MK8D also up there.

I'm surprised to see a couple digital-only games for Playstation so high. Was there a major sale?

It's nice that Overcooked 2 made the list.
