So excited to see GOW figures, after 95 metacritic, this game is doing big numbers for sure!

How times can change. We live in a world where a digital code sold in a box for an early access game outsells Gran Turismo in stores (and most likely also diditally).

No, I haven't seen anything at all, apart from banners in Tesco and other places that'll sell the game, and then again I haven't been watching any children shows on TV where I'd imagine it'll be universally focused on.
It would be on children or family oriented networks. That’s how it is in the US and Japan anyways.

Indeed, my anecdotal evidence doesn't amount to much but I thought I'd give what little I could. I would be very surprised if I did see it on the side of a bus or a bus stop, I wouldn't even know how you'd advertise this concept in this way.

Well in Japan all static displays on buses or subways are literally just a screenshot of what of the various LABO projects.

PUBG is one of the biggest games in the world, what an odd comment, and what does it have to do with GT Sport? I mean what a bizarre comparison.

PUBG is crazy really. That it even sells in retail and non stop also.
Compare that to digital where it also sits arround in the top 3 all the time since release.

Its really just a digital copy inside a box.
So ? Its the only retail option.
PSN/XBL cards also sell in retail stores even though could just buy/charge your account directly via creditcard/paypal etc.

Especially for younger gamer without CC access it might be easier to just get the retail version.

I think it is as many other people did also when it was announced it was gonna have a retail option for a game preview game. It was even laughed at in the beginning.
And it being in the top 10 constant since release, even when in game preview, bad talk about performance and digital only game. I think its pretty impressive,

It was ? I thought the general consensus was that having copies of PUGB on shelves would be a big boon for Xbox.

Not really. Not until we got some numbers people finally saw that it was a smart idea from MS to make a retail option. :)
Remember there were people who said PUBG wouldnt sell at all on Xbox haha.
