    It’s not surprising RE7 isn’t the top digital game as I think, there is still a long way to go before digital versions outsell their physical counterparts due to pricing. Ark, isn’t it that early access game that tried to do DLC whilst in development?

      It is, fella. They were in huge financial trouble and needed to do something.

        They could and should have done something else then attempt to release DLC for a game that’s still in development(at the time). Capcom gets torn apart all the time for their DLC stuff and they must have known that by even attempting it, it would do more harm then good.

        That and could set a very dangerous precedent where we are flogged DLC before we even get the release date.

      RE7 also wasn’t available for the first 23 days of the month, so probably has a lot to do with it as well. Agree with your point tho, I still don’t get why people buy from the PS Store with those prices..

      I think most people see it as a one play and trade-in kinda game.

    Anyone here playing Ark on PS4? How is it? Very few reviews available as it’s still early access and i’m afraid to watch anyone streaming as i know i’ll probably go and buy it – even though i don’t have time to play it!
