Far Cry: New Dawn is this week's No.1 game in the UK boxed retail charts. It was the most competitive release week since before Christmas, with four big new games entering the Top 20.
"The most disappointing launch of the week belongs to Microsoft's Crackdown 3, which only made No.13. The game's launch sales are barely 10 per cent of what Crackdown 2 managed in 2010." Jeez...
The game both isn't good and Microsoft has destroyed the value of their games by giving them away for pennies on gamepass.
It’s not Gamepass fault Crackdown 3 solid poorly. Forza Horizon 4 sold well despite being on gamepass, it got great reviews and was very well produced. Thus, Forza Horizon 4 earned its strong sales. Crackdown 3, has poor reviews and appears to be thoroughly mediocre, therefore it likely won’t get good sales.
Well all things considering, sales would be down because of gamepass cause why pay full price when you can get Gamepass and get the game with it. That’s not to defend it at all, if anything maybe a bit concern with how Microsoft will approach the future knowing that they’re killing their own sales. Again, not sure how Microsoft can operate with Gamepass and it having the latest games and expect to turn a profit from it besides from cramming these games with MT and lowering production cost
Wow. That’s abysmal. “Crackdown 3 sold about 4.000 units.“
Crackdown 3 is going to be a colossal flop, i wonder how Microsoft is going to spin that? I guess they'll boast about engagement numbers via Game Pass and pass them off as sales just as they did with Sea of Thieves?
Well deserved for such a shitty game
Metro exodus is dope!!
heck yea. the world is so atomospheric and really draws me in.
It looks really nice too.
A very underrated series, i love it.
Totally agree. I'm enjoying it a lot. And mastaleep is right, it looks amazing.
So good and really 2033 and Last Light were awesome as well! Exodus though is on another level and it is gorgeous absolutely gorgeous! The level of detail is astounding and it's so decrepit yet beautiful.
What are you playing it on? Wondering how it looks on the standard PS4. I played Last Light on my PC and I thought it was going to melt. Lol. Not even going to even try Exodus on it.
@Silly playing on the Pro on a Samsung 65 KS9000. It looks really good. HDR is on point as well!
I just wish it wasn't so clunky. Other than that. It's a good game
In 2010 Nintendo was the market leader.
New Dawn will slip, the reception is not great
How are the Metro games? Thinking about getting Redux
There is a good mix of action, horror, stealth and adventure in the Metro games, plus the story is solid and the campaign(s) are a good length. I think Metro 2033 and Last Light are the two most recent games that remind me of Half-Life. If you like Half-Life 1 & 2; you will likely enjoy Metro Redux. I want to get Metro Exodus, but life is too busy and games are very pricey in Canada.
Really recommend them! I loved 2033 on the 360 but playing it again in Redux was great because of all the visual updates that went with that package. Great characters, great atmosphere, really great atmospheric games!
They're pretty damn good. Redux is usually really cheap so you may as well give them a go.
Same here, I'm thinking of getting redux and playing through them before I get Exodus. I dont want to get Metro fatigue though!
Bought both this Friday & enjoyed playing them both this weekend.
Metro Exodus deserved to be numero uno. 4A never gets the pub they deserve, and FC New Dawn looks like reskinned bulls***. It's a damn shame that Metro didn't blow because EA's microtransaction laden Destiny clone is sure to overshadow everything next week. Metro needed and deserved a big opening week. Anthem is a disgrace in my book, but it'll do massive numbers.
