TLG has reached prices of 15 Euros here and there. You can't find Zelda for that price. Not even close.

Well, TLG is a 2016 game and already had some crazy discounts. I doubt TLG is still selling (as well) as Zelda, which is a evergreen title. Nevertheless, that's a great performance for TLG.

Pls tell me you didn't buy Knack 1 and 2, but skipped TLG lol.

It and GR2 are the greatest Sony Japan efforts this gen.

I bought Knack 2!

And it is still sitting in plastic on my shelf

I had to pick GR2 over TLG though. I wanted it but it just came out during a bad time for me. I will get TLG eventually though.

While Halo 5 was significantly down from Halo 4, it should still have sold far, far better than FH3.

Good to see TLG pop up. More people need to play it, it's easily my favourite game of this gen so far.

Edit: Oh, you said "one of". Yeah, it definitely should be. Probably the best selling game in the Forza series.

I believe BIU awards are only given within 1 year of a game's release.

Halo 5 received the gold award (100k) in February 2016, but it never received the platin award (200k) later in the year like FH3 just did.

So within 1 year of release FH3 sold better in Germany.

FH3 is bundled with almost every Xbox One on sale, wherras Halo 5 isn't/wasn't.

I'm still a little bit confused about its performance. It got the second 500k award (meaning 1 million sold in total) for the PS4 in April 2017 and than got another 500k award (1.5 million sold) for PS4 in May 2017. Now May is usually a pretty slow month in terms of software sales, so I'm totally confused how this was possible tbh.

Despite the protracted development, TLG probably did alright for itself given the modest budget and small team working on it.

Which is good, because it's actually the best game of the gen.

I wonder what total world wide sales for TLG at this point. We have some vaguer sales notes like it selling more in its release month that a combination of Ico's entire life time sales combined with like the first 9 months of SotC's and that was a $40 game at launch. Glad to see its doing so well.

Not really, I mean Halo 5 probably should have but racing games are a lot bigger in Europe than what FPS games are

Eh. While racing games are more popular in EU than in US FPS games are also hugely popular in Europe. Just look at that top selling (in Germany) PS4 games list in this same thread. Full of FPS games.

Wat.

More accurately, Halo's never been that popular in mainland Europe. It's an extremely US centric franchise.

Never noticed that list, thanks pretty interesting.

Outside of BO3 and BF1 the other FPS ain't doing as hot as they do in US/UK etc though, I know there's a big gap between 200k and 500k but when NFS, FH3 and Drive Club are in the same ballpark as your CoD's and Star Wars, the interest is clearly much lower for FPS games compared to the UK and US where there's probably a 2:1 maybe 3:1 gap at an absolute minimum between them

Maybe saying racing games are a "lot bigger" than fps was the wrong choice of words :p

Probably. At the top are probably halo 5 then Titanfall followed by Halo MCC then FH3 and then stuff like Gears Uktimate and Rare replay because they were bundled for that holiday

FH3 should be ahead of MCC. It opened at roughly half H5 in the UK and the legs were pretty much dead off the bat as it was broken. It did have a little bit of bundling later on with the S though maybe that swung things.

Ori should be up there aswell maybe even ahead of Gears Ultimate and RR

Splatoon 2 will likely be there for the September update and i'd fully expect Odyssey to make it on the October charts. Odyssey should be over 200k at a minimum by the end of the year.

Fh3 and halo 5? No I think halo 5 is way ahead. If FH3 sold 2.5 mill in its first 3 months and halo 5 shipped 5 million in its first 3 months, at most I'd say Horizon is probably at what halo shipped in its first holiday

Halo was also most likely overshipped though whereas Forza would have been undershipped due to expectations. Plus FH3 has gotten much better bundling than what H5 did and had much better legs.

But I do think there is still a sizeable gap, just not as big as people would have thought. Didn't mean within like 100k sales or something like that.
