VGChartz are really messing up. You have The Last of Us Remastered releasing in 15 weeks and Borderlands 2 for Vita releasing in 2 weeks in the latest preorder charts, lol. And PS4 should be higher, you've had it at 8.1 - 8.2 for a few weeks now. And you missed the week to June 14. What's going on?


kumagawa (on 02 July 2014)

You missed a week. You still have to do Weekly Sales Analysis, 14 June.
