Great debut for XC3! I'm guessing it will become the best selling game in the series, possibly by the end of the year.

118% increase week over week of the game means that the stock of PS5 increased a lot, and last week the sales were very good.

Definitely, and it was also confirmed that PS5 was number 1 again this past month in UK sales (4 in a row now) and they have moved into the number 2 spot for yearly sales there as well per Christopher Dring.
