By buying studios & making the games from them NOT available on competitors' platforms.

I hope all these business stop the "How we are such a good people", "we care for environment" "we want to make the world a better place, virtue signal nonsense & just show us the products & service they are selling.

Have a good E3 showcase, games, games games, then we talk.

No surprise at the No.1


Biomutant with a very quick drop and will likely be out the top 40 next week.

But as always this only tells a small part of the story as No digital sales included.

Insomniac deserves all the success releasing 2 highly polished and well received games in a span of 8 months. If you bought a PS5 and don't own both games, I'm not really sure why you got 1 in the first place. These are amazing launch year games.

At No.9, we have Torn Banner's Chivalry 2. The game sold best on PS5 (41% of sales), followed by the Xbox Series machines (32%) and then PS4 (36%).

What does this even mean? So 77% sold on PS platform and 32% on XS , that's more than 100% of sales. Also did it sell negative percentage on all the other platforms 🤣

RE8 #1 no surprise. Returnal continuing to do well, went up one spot from April. Days Gone jumped to #20 surprisingly.

Insomniac dominating the #1 and #2 biggest PS5 game launches in the UK since PS5 launch.

Rift Apart is also #1 in franchise history for most revenue in the UK.

I was at my local Gamestop (in Germany) & the dude said no PS5 & Xbox SeX (SeS is available readily) until end of year. Doesn't allow even preorder.

But now I have gamepass, I am not sure I want a PS5 anymore, or maybe getting XBoX SeX is better. In any case I will contimue to play on my PC, & iusing my PS4 as Video player for prime/Netflix & bluray.

So you agree it's a marketing PR spin to make the growth seem more substantial than it may be?
I am not going to agree or disagree because I don't know the answer. What I do know is that Xbox isn't selling s*** in Japan, and they won't sell s*** in Japan. Japan has gone mobile. The only way I can see MS making strides in Japan is with xCloud on iOS and Android and have some exclusive Japanese friendly games that they can stream to their phones or tablets. Or to Switch. Then it will be about software numbers. I am not sure why they even release an Xbox console there.

It looks that way at least. The average joe isn't going to know about sales numbers of Xbox in Japan so when they see the headline, they probably think "oh, Xbox is growing here". Maybe a way to hopefully promote more console sales there too.

I would rather buy used panties from a vending machine if I lived there.
