Most of the boxed sales came from PlayStation even though it does not show %, Starfield already dropped out of the top 10 to 19, ouch.

Why've you gotta make it into a console fanboy thing?

People should just focus on playing games they enjoy regardless of platform. Your life would be a lot more pleasant.

PitbullMonster77d ago

Why are you even here. If you only want to enjoy games?

Barlos77d ago

He's just giving the stark reality of the situation.

RpgSama77d ago

I'm just saying what the article says, I guess you should ask Gameindustry why they make hard facts a console fanboy thing?

They should just not release numbers or stats like MS does.

The Wood77d ago (Edited 77d ago )

Seems the only one who can fanboy is you Mr stark. The facts are there in the article. No need to upset yourself, it's just a comment section lol

Calling people names & saying horrible things such as their mother should've aborted them is extremely immature. Saying those things questions your mentality...especially getting that upset over someone stating stats about something so trivial as videogames. Smh.

They never mentioned SF you're just starting stuff. That's what y'all do obsess over games you don't like instead of focusing on games you do like.

Grow up.

LucasRuinedChildhood77d ago (Edited 77d ago )

It is mentioned in the article.
"Starfield also dropped out of the Top Ten and is now at No.19 following a 41% drop week-on-week."

I agree that people in general concern troll too much about sales though. People did it to Final Fantasy 16 too.

Analysts would say Starfield is a successful, profitable game. A lot of people dropped $100 to play it early on Steam alone.

The Wood77d ago

Can't wait to see this stance in your previous or future when sales and charts get mentioned. I have a sneaking suspension some selective reasoning will manifest itself

I have a little over 100 hours in. You're right through I missed that part at the bottom.

I guess what most failed to realize the game is also GP while the rest of the games arent. Now let's goback to GP cannibalizing sales argument.

Hogwarts Legacy is really enjoying it's sales in UK. I wonder how is it fairing in US.

congrats to MK1... next stop January Tekken 8 at number 1 (FGC will be happy) :)

TriniOutsider77d ago

Crazy that Hogwarts is still doing so well. Guess the UK is crazy about Harry Potter in a way I'll never understand.

TriniOutsider77d ago

That's good for Mortal Kombat 1. Nether Realms games always sell well.

Hofstaderman77d ago

As usual ps5 version leading the sales pack.

Deeeeznuuuts77d ago (Edited 77d ago )

Great start I'd say for lies of P, 3rd for a pretty niche game from a relatively unknown developer, pretty decent.
I've not seen any advertising for it here in the UK either, couple adverts on YouTube but that's about it.

I'd also go as far to say that 7th isn't bad for Payday 3, considering I imagine most people would get it digitally, I mean, still not the greatest but not as bad as I thought, I didn't even know it was releasing boxed to be honest.

Same with Lies of P, I reckon most would have got it digitally so for it to be in 3rd, great launch.

Mortal Kombat 1 Story DLC on the Horizon, Game Will be Supported Longer than MK11

Mortal Kombat 1 story DLC will be released in the near future, as Ed Boon promises to support the game longer than Mortal Kombat 11

Snookies123d ago (Edited 3d ago )

Mortal Kombat 1 is a big step forward from MK 11 in my opinion. I hated that you had to choose which specials characters could use in battle with MK 11. They just REALLY need to sort out that issue with menus, intros, outros, fatalities, x-rays, etc. being locked to 30 FPS. It's so stupid on PC going from constant 60 FPS to 30 just because they decided to tie the animations to a locked 30 in those scenarios...

montebristo3d ago

Gameplay is better but the microtrans are atrocious. The unlockables and extra modes are easily the worst out of any MK

Ashunderfire863d ago

And the story is sucks bad with an attempt at making some kind of Avenger's Endgame battle!

Ashunderfire863d ago

The fighting is good but the story sucks bad!

montebristo3d ago

I thought it was alright. It was boring because Liu Kang is boring. That’s “his universe” so everything is watered down. I kinda like the idea exploring every “titan universe” assuming they all created life in their image. The Shang universe would have been much more interesting. It seems like a good “extra mode” like invasions more than an actual story though I can agree on that.

maniacmayhem3d ago (Edited 3d ago )

The story is the worse I've ever seen. It's right there with "Superman is evil" bad for Injustice.

The multiverse thing is so overused and is nothing but an excuse for lazy writers. Everything and everyone can be killed but comeback and then at the end of the story, when everything is a complete mess, just reset and start all over again.

montebristo2d ago

I wasn’t bored, that makes it alright in my book lol. The lack of unlockables, menu bugs and weird amateur mistakes make the story seem decent and polished. I can’t hate because other areas are so bad. The store shenanigans are the worst. Unforgivable in my view. I would have given them money for a fair trade, instead they are holding back content to make me pay me for it again and no.

The multiverse escape in general is super lazy I agree. Destructive as well. They just made every MK ending canon with that move lol. None of it matters, they basically killed the entire storyline of MK. The original characters all became titans and have their own universe is a cool side content mode imo. I think the original Titan havik is the story dlc which could be interesting. Not libertarian Dave havik in LK universe. A prequel with the great Kung Lao would have been more interesting imo.

MetroidFREAK213d ago (Edited 3d ago )

I'll wait for the 'Ultimate' edition before I get the game

montebristo3d ago

Good choice on this one. It will be a completely different game at the end. Certain modes are still blocked and it just seems unfinished in many ways. The core is fun though and the ultimate edition will be a good buy. It’s just a shame how the early buyers are squeezed for it.

Mortal Transaktion.

MK should/could’ve evolved into sth
