    On the top sellers, XB1 has no exclusives, Switch only has exclusives, and PS4 has a mix.

    That seems like a good summary of each console. Also, 3ds has mostly exclusives.

    Good to see Far Cry 5 as the top selling game of the year so far. Great game, got hooked to it day 1 until the finish. Might be my favourite game of 2018.
