    nostalgia is such a powerful tool and it seems HZD is no longer in the top 20. I imagine it will reappear when the Story DLC releases.

    Splatoon 2 sales (first ~2 weeks, physical only)…
    US: 332,000
    Japan: 753,000

    Splatoon 2 is not nearly as big in the US as in the Japan, but these numbers still demonstrate significant growth from the first Splatoon, which sold 455,000 copies (digital + physical) in its first 6 weeks in the US.

      Well, ARMS isn’t that good tbh

      • Indielink

        We won’t think less of you for your poor opinions.

        • Annie Anemo

          I guess I may be a bit spoiled by fighting games that are actually great like Guilty Gear Xrd so games like ARMS and Pokken don’t impress me

    • Flying Carpet

      Splatoon is actually as big in the west as in Japan,if not bigger.The results about two weeks after launch doesn’t mean anything,especially when it comes to a online multiplayer game like splatoon 2

      • awng782

        Splatoon 2 sold a lot more in Japan in its first two weeks than in the US. Unless Splatoon 2 sprouts spectacular legs in the US compared to in Japan, it is most certainly bigger in Japan.

        • Flying Carpet

          The First Splatoon hanged in the top NPD chart for four months straight,it didn’t sell nearly 3.5 million copies in the west for no reason

          • awng782

            I never said Splatoon wasn’t popular outside of Japan. I have no doubt Splatoon 2 will be a multimillion seller in the west, but it’s sales in Japan are simply much stronger as of right now.

    Can someone explain to me how GTAV still sells like it does?

    • Ektoras Kalderis

      The online mode is the reason

      • Locky Mavo

        Yeah, but everyone and their dog should own it by now, yet it still has high sales. Are people triple dipping or something?

        • ronin4life

          Kids.
          No seriously, kids getting “old enough” to buy what is considered a holy grail of gaming… and certainly so by these whippersnappers since it is age rated above their grubby little mitts lolz

          • Locky Mavo

            You think so?

    • JasonBall

      I suspect the company pays for that spot on the charts. I cannot believe it’s legit after all these years.

      • Tlink7

        Really?

        • JasonBall

          Unless I’m missing some huge detail, yeah. I cannot believe it is still actually bought that much after years.

          • Tlink7

            Why not? GTA is extremely popular and keeps being rereleased

          • JasonBall

            What do you mean? I’m not familiar with rereleases of gtav

          • Tlink7

            Well the game came out on the PS3, X360, XBone, PS4, PC, so Rockstar kept offering GTA V to new audiences. Hell, if the title was released for the Switch (which it very well may be if the console continues to be a smash hit), I’m sure I and plenty of others would buy it.
            And do not underestimate the appeal of GTA to children. And there are a lot of them and there will be for quite a while πŸ˜›

          • Busterblade

            Tsk, T, I envisioned you had more taste than this…

          • Tlink7

            I enjoy stealing a bunch of cars, piling them up at a crossing, entering in the cheatcode ”boom boom boom” and watch a beautiful fireworks display :3

          • Busterblade

            If Payday 2 ends up being any good, we should consider that for MP…. Actually, scrap that, I need my mouse for a shooter πŸ˜›

          • JasonBall

            Huh.

    • Tlink7

      Until people stop procreating, there will be new kids who want to play GTA

      • Adrian Brown

        This is the reason that seems to makes more sense.

    • R.Z.

      I genuinely think it’s because the game is very fun, no matter what haters say.
      I know people who double dipped for the remastered editions just because they wanted to have it on the latest console.

  • Yay for Splatoon, LoZ and FF12. We better be getting the Zodiac Age on Switch. . .
