How does Red Dead 2 have only 6million players in mid-end Nov when VGC has its retail version at 8 million sold as of mid November?
This ain’t adding up

1. This isn't accurate.

2. VGC isn't accurate.

3. 1+2.

Wow Fifa gets average 30 million players a year?

It certainly helps that the prices of used copies drop massively after the new version comes out. So if you don't want to spend £40-50 on the new FIFA you can just buy last years version, which isn't much different really, for like £5.



Seems like we are mixing metrics.

Was really surprised by Fornite but then I looked at the region

Not bad for Dark Souls and Persona. Shenmue, though, is eating the dirt off the floor.

This ain’t adding up

Besides inaccuracies in both VGC and this, there are other pints also already named:

  • bought the game but didn't yet played it
  • played it, but haven't been online and synchronized trophies
  • never go online
  • bought as christmas gift

This means, for recently released games the above numbers are probably too low.

On the flipside for games that are longer around:

  • game played by multiple persons on the same hardware
  • game played through and sold used
  • played with new accounts for new replay-experience or new online profile

This means game that are longer around have probably higher trophy numbers than sales.
