It's a massive, massive week for UK game sales
GamesIndustry said:It is, however, billed as one of the big launch games for PlayStation 5, and 71% of its sales were for the new console (with 29% of sales coming on PS4). We'll get a better picture of its debut performance once the PS5 actually launches in the UK next week.
This is despite PS5 not launching here until this Thursday.
This bodes well for a quick transition into the new generation, people might remember that it didn't take long last time around for PS3 / 360 software sales to plummet.
People talk of leaving behind 100m consumers but let's be honest, there are only a few million hardcore gamers and once they migrate of your system, software sales are going to collapse.
