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

Well, maybe is not gigant, but is good. :P

It's definitely good. But not giant.



Sigs are dumb. And so are you!

Did he post this like 2 days before the end of May?

1mil 2/3 days?

mmmh already failed i am sure!

Switch!!!

So it seems some posters in here think that U.K.'s the only European territory.
It ALSO seems that some posters in here haven't even waited for an official account of all territories before trying to shut down my prediction.

Splatoon opened big around the world & when the numbers are tallied worldwide digital & physical, THAT will be the final word.
That means ALL of Europe (not just UK), Japan, AND the Americas.

Remember, you have no idea of the digital sales of this game until Nintendo announces them.
If Splatoon got that close to The Witcher 3 in the United Kingdom, you can damn well bet a similar effect happened in the United States.

Splatoon lived up to what Nintendo expected of it.
They rooted Wii U's worldwide summer on that one game alone...and it worked.
And it will have humongous legs. AND it will sell Wii U's.
Splatoon has just become Nintendo's next monster franchise just like I suspected at E3 2014.

I await Nintendo's report.

Splatoon came out on May 28th starting in Japan.
That's 4 days not 2 or 3.

So so far, we have the sales numbers representing about 30%-35% of wii U hardware sales so far, and we're at about 180k. Giving generous digital sales estimates, that would bring us to 200K max based on retail numbers. We might not be able to get exact digital numbers yet, but we know how much digital sales tend to be compared to retail counterparts, and it tends to be between 5 and 10% even for Nintendo consoles. You said yourself that Splatoon was going to sell consoles so software sales should be higher than thr 150K of pre-orders you insisted existed in Japan. As it turns out, it sold less than the number of pre-orders you predicted, and never sold out across Japan.

Let's try to be a bit realistic, and base Splatoon's sales trends off of Mario Kart 8's sales trends. This is how Mario Kart 8 has done:

NA: 2.01M, EUR 1.23M, JPN: 0.95M, ROW: 0.28M

Based on these Wii U software sales trends, and being generous with digital numbers, let's assume that Japan has 190K in first week sales (not first 4 days). That would mean:

North America would sell: 423K

Europe would sell: 246K

Rest of the world would sell: 56K

For a total of:  915K. 85K short of your prediction, and that's 7 days, not 4.

That's really a best case scenario. We're not even sure if Nintendo distrubuted enough copies world-wide to make the 1M even reachable, but the game has sold out nowhere. so you can't blame that as a factor.

Face it. Splatoon did not sell 1M copies in its first 4 days. It flat out did not happen. You're in denial at this point if you think official numbers are going to outperform realistic projections by 20%.

Holy crap, I haven't seen a John Lucas post in forever. I'm not trying to throw salt in wounds or anything, but how is that Wii-U 240 million lifetime sales going? :P

Considering you're calling people out for being too quick to jump to conclusions, why are you doing the same?



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

190,000 in Japan digital+sold.
Maybe the same in UK...so, 25,000 in UK?

785,000 to go? :-/

Actual prediction of the year: Super Smash Bros Ultimate will sell in 12 million

This thread is going to be used as a weapon later. 99% of Nintendo users have said NO to this. Is gonna be used as a weapon anyway.

Exactly what's gonna happen, tbh. "Splatoon only sold 500k FW WW? You guys said it would sell 1m FW!!!!!"
