I'm loving GoT! You know a games good when you can go around only doing side quests and still have tons of fun.

Famitsu doesn't list the console sales on its list. When we used to use 4Gamer (through Media Create) as our source, the console sales were included. But 4Gamer no longer posts a list from Media Create, and Famitsu's weekly sales list doesn't include console sales.

Nice, it looks like Ghost shattered the TLOU 2's opening sales number by more than 30,000 copies. Very well done.

Ghosts of Tsushima also suffered from a shortage of copies and sold out at many outlets, so the demand was far greater than what it actually sold.

It also got a 40/40 in Famitsu which is pretty unheard of for a western game. Props to it Smile

We are aware Famitsu does post hardware sales each week, but those are not at a fixed URL like the weekly post we use, which is here: https://www.famitsu.com/ranking/game-sales/.

For us, it's just easier to use the same URL each week to write these articles than searching for Famitsu's post each week that has the hardware rankings. We have been cutting back in general on weekly rankings articles (we no longer do weekly BD, DVD, or manga rankings articles).
