Oh would you look at that...all 3rd party games. I guess MS putting exclusives on PC would have put this over the top and made Crap Gamer pissed. (i'm just kiddin here guys)

Yeah, just did a quick check at Amazon and saw that the PS4 COD bundle is selling quite well, and the game continues to sell a bunch on both consoles. Win/win situation for Activision.

edit: was #5 best sellers for sales ranked hourly.

I hope Digimon does big numbers for February, Gravity Rush too maybe, these first 3 months seem like a good time to release lowkey games and get decent sales.

We now have empirical evidence that the answer is: Yes

Gravity Rush will have a larger than average digital rate because the retail version is Amazon exclusive.

I really hope Digimon charts in the Top 10. It finished in the Top 100 for January on Amazon and the retailer had to restock twice this month. Of course, this is just Amazon and may not be representative for the rest of the market.

Gravity Rush wouldn't be counted, due to the retail version being exclusive to Amazon.

I'm expecting Naruto, Street Fighter and Fire Emblem to chart, though I'm not sure how NPD plans on handling the split for charting purposes for the last one.

EDIT: Add in Far Cry Primal, too, though that's going to be impacted somewhat by its late release.

"Excuse me? Have I played this one before? "Grand Theft Auto 5"? Everybody in the world has Grand Theft Auto 5. If you lived in the suburbs you were issued it. It came in the mail with samples of "Tide"."

Can of coke if you get the joke.

This month, I'd appreciate to know numbers for Mario & Luigi and Final Fantasy: Explorers. Plus, it'd be neat to get some more knowledge about Lego Avengers' sales, mainly the actul spit between consoles.

So Call of Duty sold better on XBO? Really?
During the E3 of the XB1/PS4 announcement, they asked the guy from EA about the deal between them and MS for Titanfall. He said that Xbox was 'the shooter box'. He was right then, and it remains today. Kids that literally grew up with Xbox also grew up with shooters, including my own.

I'm never surprised to see shooters sell well on Xbox.

It's so weird that being the best selling console and having exclusive marketing doesn't make Star Wars or COD best selling on the PS4.
