While Uncharted 4 is strong enough to keep the Ps4 on top in a week of slow sales for all platforms, the same can’t be same for other western games. Homefront: The Revolution, Doom and Battleborn all launched with arguably lackluster sales. It’s definitely interiguing to notice that Homefront actually managed to beat Doom by a relatively wide margin.

It’ll be interesting to see if Overwatch, that launched yesterday in Japan as well, will fare better. Its visual style definitely could prove appealing for the Japanese audience.
