Yeah those pre order numbers are just getting really bad now, No way CoD or Halo are that low

COD peaked a while ago, cant see the numbers improving. And Halo is just a collection of older games are people really expecting it to light the charts on fire?


Yes.

You would have to be a fool to think it WON'T light the charts on fire.



Won bet with t3mporary_126 - I correctly predicted that the Wii U's LTD at the end of 2014 would be closer to 9 million than 10 million. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=6673287

So it's confirmed also on VGC, XBOne launch in China was bigger than in Japan + some European countries.
Not enough to make it first WW, but enough to tell Sony it will have to do things right when it launches PS4 in China, even after stabilizing down after launch period those sales can be an interesting boost, currently not ecceptional, but expected to grow. Outside of China, USA and UK XBOne hasn't very much to celebrate.
Despite PS4 being first WW and in many parts of the world, Sony should worry for it in Japan and obviously even more for PSV outside of it.
3DS again one of the only three above 100k, but it needs SSB launch in USA and Europe to achieve it, this is no good.
Underwhelming launch for Shadow of Mordor and SSB outside of USA.
Overall, beyond appearances, the situation is not very good overall, quite a meh week considering how many big launches it contained.

In those charts, it is behind games like Fifa 15 and Bayonetta 2 (on Amazon charts), which are hardly massive sellers in the US. Hell, on the hourly charts, it's behind PS4 hardware sales.

While I'd expect Halo MCC to do well, why do people have to link charts like those and say it's lighting up the charts, when really it's performing solidly but not exceptionally well.



Europe smash sales seem way to low



Please excuse my (probally) poor grammar

Are those good numbers for Forza Horizon 2? Expected?

You need to remember that Forza Horizon is a spin-off of Forza... it was never a biger seller game... the oponening is fine for a game that sells ~1.5 million lifetime.

I don't know why some guys thought it will sell like a main Forza game.

BTW VGC is heavly overtracking it here... close to 100k in US alone... it sold way less than what you are seeing.



WTF?

I checked the September US sales for PS4 and it is heavily undertracked.

VGC: ~400k
NPD: 528k

That is why PS4 looks close to Xbone this week... it sold over 200k for sure... maybe even close to 250k.

NPD proved PS4 didn't sold less than 200k in one week for a long time... at least September was all weeks over 200k.
