This game don’t chart no more after seeing the sales chart this week

Which is still good sales

Physical still going strong then.

I get most my games digitally,.. I don't like it ,.. but don't have space for every game I've bought this gen,.. (it is also a pain in the arse getting English covers for the games I buy physically where I usually buy them) So I just preorder or buy stuff on US psn mostly)
