Who doesn't have GTA5 at this point? That is the biggest mystery to me lol. I want to get it on PC but the best sale has still been $30 on steam. Not worth it IMO because I already bought it on 360 and xbone
As ever? No. Nowhere close. Everything used to stop at a pub 10 years ago on NPD day. Now, it's a random email that pops up that I doubt many people even read.
The digital tracking service, and these releases, are supposed to reinvigorate NPD interest. And the idea that some titles on the rankings have digital and others don't is supposed to encourage non-participating publishers to start participating.
Full by month by platform units, revenue and price for every physical title, and the same for digital distribution on Steam, PSN and XBL if you're a participating publisher.
Having lived through Sales-Age's NPD Golden-Age it was already painful seeing what NPD day had become and the only thing that gave me hope was how certainly things could only improve from there. Boy was I fuckin' wrong.
Dead wrong. Let's pack it up guys.
And PAL threads provide waaaaay more data.
Chart-Track/gfk/etc have improved a lot over the years and there's no witch-hunting going on people who dare provide some numbers, Bruno&Co. have been on point with the PAL data.
