'The Callisto Protocol debuts at No.6 and PS5 accounted for 74% of the game's physical sales.'.

That's a big slice of the pie.

Being that it's the, mostly, only functional version; with PC being basically broken.

Won't be surprised it doesn't even hit the list very soon.

OK, that's one angle, but it doesn't apply to NFS does it?

'78% of boxed sales for the EA racing game came on PS5.'.

Playstation has a much bigger market share in the UK than Xbox does. The vast majority of next gen Xbox users are on series s which is a digital system. UK chart tracks physical sales. You do the math.

I didn't know it was this giant competition.

I made the comment purely because of the reasons mentioned and the controversy around the game.

The article is a sales report.

Competition? MS are buying up publishers to increase competition, remember?

I take it Xbox gamers don't buy games now because of GP lol

badz14963d ago

no need to buy when you knew the game will be in the vault just several months from now. IF I subs to GP, I know I won't be buying any MS and EA games, EVER!

NFS launched at #17?? how the mighty have fallen. EA should just put the game to sleep now and let Criterion makes something else

EvertonFC63d ago

You wouldn't buy it anyway.

I have bought all non-NFS games from Criterion before. Personally I think a Burnout game would do better than NFS commercially. There is basically no game like Burnout being released for a long time now.
