seems very precise that Spiderman sold 23 less copies this week than last!

25% is a lot considering how much FIFA 18 sold in the UK

I wonder how much of that drop is negated by an increase in digital sales.

Wasn't FIFA 18 on the Switch also just 1% of the total initial sales? You'd think they would go up somewhat with more consoles around, but nope. I wonder what this means for 3rd party sales on the UK.

Ouch, Valkyria Chronicles 4 was barely present, to be fair though, I haven't seen a lot of physical copies of it in stores, a couple of stores I went to didn't even have it stocked. Here's to hoping that Digital Sales were higher. I wouldn't want Sega to make Valkyria 5 exclusive to Japan. It's a good game, and my current GOTY.
