They stopped that once Sony started doing better than they were on a regular basis and it hasn't changed. If they were leading in sales they'd give the numbers. To be fair I don't think Sony was posting numbers much during the previous gen but I could be wrong.

Was this you DriedMangoes?


What makes you think it's me?

I know I'm among the few PS fans on this board but I hope I'm at least giving off the impression that I post like a normal / sane person who actually researches before posting.

Don't worry wasn't being serious.

I dread to think what someone like him gets messaged about. Reckon that's one of the more tame messages. Can imagine him getting some very angry ones from a small %

Switch is at 85 million sold in just 4 years. Selling faster than the Wii and PS4. Sold more than Game Boy Advance, PlayStation Portable. Is about to clip the Xbox 360 and PS3 which took 10 years to get to this point.

That's crazy. By Nintendo tradition the next console will be a mess.

80% of sales are on PS platform, 20% on Xbox if i am interpreting this right. That's a huge difference 😳


Resident Evil: Village has comfortably taken No.1 spot in this week's UK boxed charts, according to GfK Entertainment.

The horror game is the second biggest boxed launch of the year behind Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury. 49% of its sales were on PS5, 31% on PS4 and 20% on Xbox.

Rumor looks like Returnal hasn't hit 100k sold.

And according to this site, worst performing PS5 exclusive so far.

UK Sales Charts: PS5 Roguelike Returnal Off to Slower Start Than Other Sony Exclusives​

Game Over

And Returnal isn't up in top 10.

Last week's No.2 game, Returnal, falls to No.15 after an 84% drop in sales.

Well they only compare it to major Sony exclusives which doesn't seem like a fair comparison

But I think it was inevitable for it to sell less than it should because Sony didn't really promote it like it deserved.

Yeah Returnal fell off the UK physical charts after launch week which is unfortunate.

It was still #3 and 4 in top downloads though in NA and Europe respectively which is encouraging to see.

Seems soso from what I just read.

The high price to entry, niche genre didn't help either.

Having said that, I recommend it fully if you are into Roguelites, Souls like games. Very rewarding feeling after beating the game.

Rogue style game is a niche. They could have made a standard game with rogue style an option. The price is also too high.

Most gamers do not like to lose long period of process, something many game developer still do not understand. This is made worse by crushes that made you lose even more progress.
