I wonder how much ps4 drops in Japan tomorrow

Seems like Super Mario Party did 150k in its launch week in Japan? That's what the blog sounds like but why knows.

I had a dream that the original Mario Party game was actually Super Mario World and it was for the SNES.

Xbox 100k milestone in Japan. At long last.

What did 360 reach?

What did 360 reach?
Over 1.4million. Xbox One is a catastrophic collapse from that.

Holy shame didn't realise they dropped the ball that hard in Japan. They'll probably sell 10% of that lifetime

Black Ops 4 sold a pitiful 260k first week in the UK, only just over half of WW2 and the lowest in 11 years, since Modern Warfare. Meanwhile, Activision announced Black Ops 4 is their biggest digital launch ever, setting the new record PSN all time first day sales, a new activision record on xbox and the PC launch more than doubled last year.

So... who knows whether its up or down! This quote would suggest it is still up WW over WW2: 'the total number of people who connected online to play Black Ops 4 increased from last year's release'

With fifa also dropping dramatically this year, perhaps the UK market has seen a big shift to digital this year. Not sure why the jump would be so big compared to last year, perhaps amazon pre order discount stopping/ stock issues?

Aloso interesting, COD only launched 37% higher than Spider Man.

There is nothing to suggest that the uptake in digital sales grew so drastically YoY. While digital is still growing, Physical sales still represent the majority of a games sales. If sales were up YoY they would have said so, like they did with digital sales. Not use players on the first day. I don't see how the increase in digital sales would somehow offest the massive decrease in physical sales.

However the game might have sold more but in the UK it dropped. Remember Activision's PR is about a launch WW not just UK.

Not in this case, but some games are seeing drastic increases in digital ratios. The only suggestion that digital may have jumped up this year is that physical sales are dropping uncharacteristically in these big franchises. However that could be just down to the UK market being in a bad way, or a number of other factors.

I think they're being purposefully confusing, but maybe they would have said so if sales increased. When Blops 3 launched they mentioned that sales had increased significantly over the last two.

I just find it strange that black Ops 4 would be so low, considering Black Ops is the most popular COD series and this has Battle Royale too.

I thought digital was making 30% of all sales now, and increasing.

I think the average is over 30% now, but some games of course will be much higher. For example Destiny 2 had a digital ratio of something like 15% higher than the average in the UK last year.
