I want to say it is for the PS3. These sales are amazing to me. Even after hearing about this game for a few weeks now, I did not know how big this show was.

It's for the PS3 and those are not first day sales but shipments.

It is very popular show, and being Musou game really helped it. I think it might sell about 600k first week. However it could be anywhere between 500k-600k. 

Most likely the biggest ps3 release this year if I had to guess. (Assuming Versus doesn't come out)

Lol, it's impressive and it could end up 750K-800K first week shipmetns. It also broke record shipments and I think retailers already ask for 500k beforehand maybe due to pre-orders because they won't ask for that amount just by faith alone. Anyway, will see next week how will it do.

Wow... I keep failing to get your concept. I totally thought you were meaning the retailers asked for that many copies for the first week. Don't ask me why, it's late at night. xD I should probably get to bed...
