John Lucas, the chart situation of the USA doesn't apply to the UK. It has been normal practice to post both, single format and multiformat charts, since forever. Splatoon is #3, behind The Witcher 3 (PS4) and The Witcher 3 (Xbox One).

 


So OK cool. I didn't know they did both.
Still a good sign because The Witcher 3 was a big game but already an established franchise.
For newcomer Splatoon to hit this big out of the gate is good news.

Nintendo has succeeded in creating their next monster franchise.
I knew it as soon as I saw all the inspired fan art of those Inkling characters.

I DEFINITELY know it now after Kid Now Squid Now, Splat-at-at-at-at-at-at-at-at-at-Splatoon, & the word FRESH.

If fan art were a good metric for game sales then dragon's crown would have sold 10+ million.

In three days? Yeah, not a chance. Maybe in like, three months.


well maybe not in 3 days but you dont look like a nintendo fan, cause if you were you would notice that splatoon is going to at least do 500k first week, with only in  japan it has 150k in preorders so his prediction is to high but 3 months is an exaggeration 

So is everyone who owns a wiiu in Japan buying splatoon?

But your predictions used to be accurate many, many years ago.

Are you becoming a joke thread writer now?

Mario Kart 8 carried the summer for Wii U in 2014

Did... you see WiiU sales last summer?

He didn't say how far it carried the system.



Mario Kart sold 1.2m in first weekend, so I can't see Splatoon have similar sale, but I can see 1m on end of June.

Not only everyone in Japan who owns a Wii U but many NEW buyers who will BUY a Wii U FOR this game Splatoon.
Wait for the Media Create charts to see the giant boost.

So it appears that Splatoon did... 145K First Week in Japan (retail), which appears to be less than the preorders you mentioned. So combined between Japan and the UK we're looking at 170K (approximately). Assuming 20% online sales (which is generous), this puts Splatoon sales at around 200K. So essentially the rest of Europe, and North America would have to have approximately 800K in sales in the first week?

It appears you will have some words to eat, but I'm sure you'll spin it to make it look like it's not Nintendo's fault.

Saw the Media Create charts. The WiiU went from 7k to a whopping 17k. Truly gigantic. 



Sigs are dumb. And so are you!

170,000 JP+UK.

830,000 to go... :P
