Yeah. I think game pass would have a lot to do with it falling off the list. Mostly digital I'm sure.

I know that people like to whine about spoilers but it was it really necessary to illustrate *this* story with *that* screenshot? I'm several hours in and haven't got to that scene yet.

Its a shame it didn't sell more or equal to Horizon, but the concept of Robot Dinosaurs is really something new and interesting that its hard not buying.

Kinda disappointing it didn't outdo Horizon. GOW is more popular in NA, I think. Overall it should outperform Horizon but we'll see.
