When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

My prediction is.....


over 100 k easily (hopefully). I'd say around 115-130 k

Japan numbers are usually more reliable, i think.

My educated guess is:

320 000


According to a new study; YouTube,, NeoGaf, N4G, VGChartz, IGN, GameSpot, GameStop, Facebook, Twitter, Amazon, All of Europe, FAMITSU, Japan, the rest of Asia and The whole of the Middle East among countless others are experiencing a Tsunami of people in love with Sony's gamings offerings.

Funny, how People predict, it will only sell 120-150k. Even Pikmin 3 sold round abut 90-100k.

I say at least 350k.

Around 1.1 million Wii U's in Japan, massive title but Nintendo first parties aren't nearly as frontloaded as for PS and Xbox games. I'd say somewhere around 180-200k with small drops for a couple of weeks. With the lack of other, compelling software, titles like this will shine all the brighter and could get a massive attach rate.
