More than a year later, The Last of Us Part II still charts. Woohoo! I'm guessing it had a price cut or was on sale.

Are Xbox One numbers being included in the Aliens sales? They can't literally be 0% can they?

MS has been packaging cross gen Xbox One and Xbox Series X games as just one sku for a while now. The box says Xbox and specifies which consoles it is compatible with and whether it has any enhancements. To me it just seems like a way to make the Series X has more games for it.
