Rare's done it - Sea of Thieves has topped the UK games chart in a busy week for new releases.

Source: https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2018-03-26-sea-of-thieves-lands-uk-chart-number-one

Impressively, the PC and Xbox One pirate simulator hit number one just on Xbox One boxed copies alone. (UK numbers company Chart-Track does not count digital sales on PC or Xbox.)

And, of course, those sales do not count anyone playing the game using the cheapest option - via Microsoft's £7.99 per month Xbox Games Pass subscription, which Sea of Thieves is part of.

Five other games sailed into the chart alongside Sea of Thieves, including the EA-published co-op adventure A Way Out - AKA the latest game made by the very enthusiastic Josef Fares. It arrived in second place.

Ni No Kuni 2 entered the chart in third position, just ahead of Assassin's Creed Rogue Remastered in fourth.

Koei Tecmo's AOT2 turned up in 17th place, while Nintendo's Detective Pikachu charted in 23rd.

The full top 10 lies below:

  1. Sea of Thieves
  2. A Way Out
  3. Ni No Kuni 2
  4. Assassin's Creed Rogue Remastered
  5. FIFA 18
  6. Burnout Paradise Remastered
  7. Grand Theft Auto 5
  8. EA Sports UFC 3
  9. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
  10. Super Mario Oranges

So what you guys think SW, would Ni no Kuni 2 have won if it came out earlier.

@Bread_or_Decide: There's story lines, characters, and art style.

Microsoft appears to be working on some sort of turnaround in the gaming industry. Not that 2017 was the worst year for the company, as it still made a good amount of money. But the lack of Xbox One exclusives certainly hurt it, and the Xbox One X, while performing admirably, wasn’t nearly enough to knock PlayStation 4 off of its perch.

"Source : http://comicbook.com/gaming/amp/2018/03/08/capcom-microsoft-visit-japan-resident-evil-2/

But some interesting things have been happening, and this time, it’s with Capcom. The third-party company recently paid a cryptic visit to Microsoft in Japan, and posted some teaser images indicating that something is happening. What it is, we’re not sure yet, but it could lead up to an announcement of some kind at E3.

First up, there’s this image of the Resident Evil dummy finger – an item that’s been notoriously featured in Capcom social media – alongside a Master Chief Halo statuette. Obviously, we probably won’t see any kind of cross-over with the two, but it’s nice to see the dummy finger slip right into the action.

Next up, we have another image, this time what appears to be some kind of Forza racing vehicle outside of Turn 10 Studios, with the dummy finger sitting on a table right in front of it. Again, not a crossover tease, but just an interesting image posted by Capcom.

So, what does this mean? Well, for all we know, it could be nothing, but, then again, there have been rumors swirling about a remake for Resident Evil 2, one of the company’s most popular games, so they could be working out some kind of Xbox One timed exclusivity deals. Or, then again, it could just be a casual visit, since Capcom is a Japan-based company.

On the other hand, Sega, also in Japan, also paid a visit to Microsoft last month, and shortly following that trip, rumors began to circulate that the big “M” might be showing interest in a sequel to Vanquish, Platinum Games’ frenetic action game. We’ve heard nothing since, but that’s the idea – Microsoft may be piling up announcements for a big E3 reveal. Or, again, casual.

Getting both Capcom and Sega more on board for Xbox One projects would be a huge get, and possibly lead a turnaround in Microsoft’s misfortunes in that market. Xbox head Phil Spencer has been noting in the past that he’s been working more on getting better relations with overseas companies for Xbox support – hence why we may be seeing these visits."

We’ll see what comes out of these meetings soon enough. Maybe during E3?

All three home consoles are showing stellar performance in January, two Japanese games are at the top of the NPD software chart.

NPD Software.

1. Monster Hunter World

2. Dragon Ball FighterZ

3. Call of Duty: WWII

4. PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds

5. Grand Theft Auto V

6. NBA 2K18

7. Super Mario Odyssey

8. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

9. Mario Kart 8

10. Madden NFL 18

11. Star Wars: Battlefront II

12. Assassin’s Creed Origins

13. EA Sports UFC 3

14. Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege

15. FIFA 18

16. Dragon Ball Xenoverse

17. The Sims 4

18. Splatoon 2

19. Dissidia Final Fantasy NT

20. Need for Speed Payback

On the hardware side, the Nintendo Switch is the console that sold the most units, while the PS4 family made the most money. That being said, the gap in dollar sales between PS4, Switch, and Xbox One was only 3%, with all three consoles showing excellent performance across the board.

It’s worth mentioning that Monster Hunter World has now sold over six million units worldwide and that it’s dominating in Japan as well, where according to Famitsu, it sold over two million units in the first three days including both retail and digital marketplaces.

@stormcast: Not judging by art style, the art style could stay the same, just more serious.That photo is when Zack died. Right before he changed. On the way to midgar, he wasnt playfull or goofy.
