I didn't know Xbox One was that weak in Italy. First game at 20, and second one at 35.

That sounds like a low split for a lego game on a Nintendo console, didn't they used to sell really well even on the Wii U or am I remembering wrong?
I dont know how the Lego games did in the UK duing Wii U. But PS4 is strong in that specific market right now and it shows with the split. A quarter of the market considering the userbase is not bad, not bad at all.

Lego games did pretty well on the WiiU. I dont think they ever pulled a quarter of the haul on WiiU though.

If this is the UK split it should be better across the rest of Europe. Though I imagine a similar split in the US.

Is that a decent result for Captain Todd? It's weird that it's classed as a re-entry, were all early gen PS4/Xbox One ports classed as the same? I can't recall.

The poor result I see there would be Lego The Incredibles. Should really be no1 as a multi plat of such a big IP but there are definitely a few issues around it- not least its arbitrary delay along with the movie that has sapped some enthusiasm id imagine.

Nah the MC threads are an absolute disgrace for this forum and moderation team.

*Edit: Kept the above since it's already been quoted but I will drop the conversation per mod request below.

What is the problem with Media Create threads? In my experience, they haven't been any better or worse than, say, the NPD threads (and yet I never see those called out?)

This is completely meaningless without evidence and/or examples. It's even worse considering you've definitely posted something like this before, again without giving any examples.

I find it completely unnecessary and unsubstantial regardless of your retort however. I've definitely seen poor form in MC, but I've also seen it here- been a victim of it in fact- and in NPD of course.

Your pot-shots are very grating and unhelpful basically.

One dude doesn't like Media Create threads. It's not a big deal yall. Shrug.

Anyway, does someone have the GOW vs Horizon comparison. That would be super interesting to see now that GOW has has had some months to leg it out

Dude there was a week when an Admin posted after few pages in MC "I'm proud of you guys this week there hasn't been a ban yet"
Saying other threads are bad is really not the point here. Yeah NPD threads are shitshows but at least they are once a month of a shitshow.

I'm pretty sure that Nibel's post was tongue in cheek.
Nothing about the Media Create threads is particularly shit-showey to me. There's as much good and bad discussion there as there is anywhere else on this site.

Ok. Let's drop this talk.

If you want to post in this thread or other sales threads about the data presented then go ahead. We don't need console fanboy nonsense making the experience worse for everyone.

That was a good week. That was around the time of Monster Hunter World’s pre release and there were hostilities that existed before Era was formed. Hard times.

It’s mostly fine right now though.

It was ever 1 or 2 people that used to shit up MC threads and they've either been banned or got bored. MC threads are no different to any other sales threads except the talk is mainly about the Switch because it is dominating in Japan that's all.

Edit: back on topic it looks like a standard week for the UK, basically as expected for OT and Crash.

Media Create threads are great simply because there's actual data available for everyone. Can actually have proper discussions, predictions, forecasts, etc.

The age of Top 40 is finally over (lol)
They really are taking their time with this one.

When does Octopath release in France btw?
It did launch last week in Europe - France is always a week behind on data though
..so it'll be part of next week's Top 5.

Thread got a bit derailed for a complete non issue. There was no drama in this thread nor in the referenced thread.
Really weird behaviour.

But yeah I agree.

Zhuge since you're here I was wondering about Lego The Incredibles. I have posted before that I would've preferred a Lego The Last Jedi and I'm wondering how well Lego The Force Awakens sold (I assume it sold very well since it was on everything and was TFA in 2016) and why they moved away from Star Wars this year? Did they expect TI to do better and is it at all feasible for that to happen?

I like TI and whilst I see some logic in it I still think TLJ would've outsold it 2/3 fold.

Top 40 individual formats is out now :)

http://www.chart-track.co.uk/index.jsp?c=p/software/uk/archive/index_test.jsp&ct=110032&arch=t&lyr=2018&year=2018&week=28

Octopath Traveler is #1, and Crash Bandicoot is holding quite good. Toad is #3 for Switch, but the 3DS version didnt make the top 40. God of War is also holding quite good.


This is completely meaningless without evidence and/or examples. It's even worse considering you've definitely posted something like this before, again without giving any examples.
I enjoy the Media Create threads in general and there are several of people posting interesting information and that discuss respectfully, but just to take on example, yesterday i was commenting one a post, and the guy answered saying that i always answer with useless questions (and putting the word 'answer' in qoutation for some reason, maybe to belittle my comment). And theres been no follow up reply from him when i replied asking what was going on with his attitude. Such behavior feels very unnecessary and sours the experience for me :/ There shouldnt be a problem to disagree and still have a respectful tone towards each other. And so far, no action were taken against such posting.

EDIT: I see ZhugeEX's post.

3DS is almost completely dead in the UK huh. A few of its releases this year haven't charted in the top 40 now IIRC, that weird Detective Pikachu spike on week 2 was a highlight of this year though lol.

Ayyy, Detroit clutching out that Top 15 on the value chart just barely lol. I think the timing should be right to discount it. I'm impressed it held its value for as long as it has.

Great for Octopath at no.1. Sales aren’t huge but decent. Hopefully it continues to sell decently. Biggest drop for Detroit since release but it’s held in remarkably for a full price game until now. Could do with some price promotions to get it going again. GoW still beasting. JP dropping sharply too.

Switch matching Xbox for number of titles in top 40.

3DS was always kinda dead in UK....outside of the big first party games, it was very difficult for games to appear on the charts. Though things were relatively good during summer months.

The DS was massive in the UK...but the audience for the most part didn't embrace the 3DS in the same way.

God of War needs a gif, where Kratos is climbing out of Hades, throwing into the abyss souls with different games' names on them. I guess GoW won't leave the top 10 until Spider-Man arrives.

Did I see somebody say Toad sold 40% less than the Wii U opening week?

That seems a shame. Is that the first time that's happened with a Wii U port?
