Not to take anything away from their achievement but one thing that might explain this is the lack of games for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Haha, but by contrast Lightning Returns didn't even place in the top 20 despite being only 3 weeks old. It just stings. I really wanted Thief to do well to continue Square's string of hits lately (Tomb Raider, A Realm Reborn, Bravely Default, FFXHD) so its tough to watch this happen.
