God of War Sales Flatten Nintendo Labo's Debut


Eurogamer has the story.

Quote:
PlayStation 4 exclusive God of War remains in the UK chart top spot again this week, despite the debut of two Nintendo Labo packs.

Labo, Nintendo Switch's new papercraft accessory system, landed in third place behind God of War and Far Cry 5 for its main 60 Variety Kit, and in 20th place for its 70 robot kit.

It's hard to judge how well Labo has done in comparison to expectations. It's an expensive kit (much of which will be taken up by the cost of the physical Switch game cartridge) but the range feels like one designed to sell continuously over time (and especially over Christmas). For something intended to have a slow sales burn, then, it is off to a decent start.

FIFA 18 was fourth in the chart, ahead of Switch exclusive Mario Kart 8 in fifth place and a heavily discounted Fallout 4 in sixth.

I would think it would be better to say that the sales look very good for such an odd addition to the market.

As they say, this isn't apples to apples.

Is anyone actually surprised by this?

Labo feels more like a slow-burn item; it'll probably do better over the course of the summer and, of course, Christmas. Plus, it was a completely new, unknown quantity compared to a hotly anticipated title like God of War.
