Sales tracker claims less sales than predecessor - didn't count PC.

Chart-Track Confusion as Metro Claims UK Top Spot
Deep Silver has scored the double in this week's UK Video Game Chart, as Metro: Last Light debuts in the #1 spot alongside previous top seller Dead Island: Riptide.

While it's a great win for 4A Games and the work it has put into the post-apocalyptic title, number-cruncher Chart-Track has revealed that despite its top position, first week sales couldn't match that of its under-appreciated predecessor, Metro 2033. That's despite the first game 'only' debuting in #5.

Of course, Metro: Last Light did not see a physical PC release in the UK, opting for digital distribution. And Chart-Track still does not track sales on digital platforms - a medium that consumers in the UK are fast transitioning to. So perhaps Chart-Track's assessment is a symptom of its inability to evolve with consumers that it aims to track.

Full chart below.

{NE} - 01 - Metro: Last Light - Deep Silver
{01} - 02 - Dead Island: Riptide - Deep Silver
{05} - 03 - FIFA 13 - EA
{NE} - 04 - Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity - Nintendo
{02} - 05 - Call of Duty: Black Ops II - Activision
{03} - 06 - Tomb Raider - Square Enix
{09} - 07 - The Walking Dead - Telltale
{04} - 08 - Injustice: Gods Among Us - Warner Bros
{07} - 09 - Assassin's Creed III - Ubisoft
{06} - 10 - BioShock Infinite - 2K Games

I have been playing this game for a few mohtns now and have come up with these issues: The hitting is really really hard for someone who is not an excellent gamer. I have changed the gameplay difficulty sliders all around and they have done absolutely nothing. How realistic is someone hitting 15 foul balls in a row? I am constantly hitting fly outs behind home plate to the catcher. I have only been able to to put the ball in play 3 times while using the power swing. Every time I use it( I try a lot), I hit a foul ball. I have tried soo many different timings on the swing and the results are almost always the same. I know they are trying to be realistic, but from my experience, this is the WORST hitting for a baseball game EVER. Maybe it is me, but I have read a lot of people having the same problems. 95% of the articles I find, are of people trying to figure out how to hit on this game. I tried messing around for about 20 games with having the fielding errors and throwing errors of the cpu really high. The result in my 20 games of having it at 100%, 95%, and 90% are the same, the cpu has yet to make an error. Now that doesn't seem right and I've slid it the other way and the same thing happens, no errors. What is the point of difficulty sliders if they do not work. I will say that the baserunning and field running sliders do work ok and the same with throwing strength. That is pretty much it. The only good thing on this game is the pitching. The way you pitch in this game is pretty good. For that reason this game gets 2 stars. I would give this game negative stars for the hitting and slider difficulty option. Overall, if you want a baseball game for xbox, your stuck with 2k sports. If you also have a ps3, buy the show. It is way better and alot more fun.
