XCX is confirmed for 60fps.


Where?

Andre in the Gamexplain stream said that the game was at 60fps, but I´m pretty sure he was wrong, no way a game like this runing at 60. The good thing is that he said that the game feels very smooth, probably he get confused by that.

Check out some of the Twitch channels. They say it's very smooth as well and they confirm the game at 60fps, complaining how they can only capture the game at 30fps. I'm taking their word for it. Articles written some years ago say the game is 30fps, but it has been upgraded in many other ways since then.

Xenoblade Chronicles X of course

Dont take their world because I think you are gonna be disapointed. There´s some 60fps videos of the game on youtube and it doesn´t look like a 60fps game, it looks smooth enough though.



I think this one might be settled by which game is more popular in Japan, as i believe both games will sell decently in the West.



My guess is Splatoon. I feel as though it has a more broad market (it appeals to fans of platformers and shooters alike) while XCX has a more narrow appeal (the JRPG market is pretty niche in comparison).

It will be close though, I think. I predict both will be 1 million sellers, and I have a feeling at least one will get to 2m.

Very tough.

Xenoblade already has a good fanbase, the original sold .89m and since then the series has gotten a representation in Smash Bros. Xenoblade Chronicles X is among one of the most anticipated titles on the Wii U right now.

With Splatoon, it is VERY hard to say. Will this hit the right audience at the right time? Will they advertise it intensely? After all, it is a new IP. New IPs generally sell either really bad or really good. However, I feel like this one will sell VERY good. Now it just depends on how good it will sell.


Overall, I expect Splatoon with around 1.5m and Xenoblade Chronicles X with around 1.5m. I have good faith in both games and I hope both do very well. But if any were to sell more, I would say Xenoblade would sell more but not by much.

FIRST WEEK (Globally)
Xeno X: 350,000
Splatoon: 275,000

LIFETIME
Xeno X: 1,200,000
Splatoon: 1,500,000

In short: Xeno X will have better launch, but Splatoon will have better legs...



I'm going to have to agree with the general opinion here. 1-1.5m for "X", ~2m for "Splatoon". Let's hope both numbers are that good, though. One or the other could really take off, but I don't see either selling under 1m.

Splatoon for sure. This is like comparing Mario Kart to Bayonetta 2. Splatoon has the demographics on the Wii U and Nintendo is marketing the hell out of it. Xenoblade X will have some name recognition from XC and XC3D but at the end of the day it's a niche game, and the animu faces won't help it much in the west.



Probably Splatoon in the long run.
