Good job updating the graphs to include XBOne releases. I've updated the release dates so the chart should be accurate next week too. LOL about Killzone, looks like a good game, but it's not going to do particularly well because it's Vita. (No offense to fans, but the best selling Vita games only have 1 million sales).

August 21st? I think the title is wrong.


italo244 (on 06 September 2013)
