So, Splatoon outsold Titanfall by 2:1 in the US...

Splatoon second NPD: 290,000
Titanfall second NPD: 140,000

Nintendo has killed the Wii U with all the NX releasing next year rumours. It looks like a Sega Saturn with a bit more of support if some games are released both on NX and Wii U (perhaps NX is Wii U backwards compatible).

I think if Nintendo had said the Wii U was going to be their only home console till XMas of 2017 it would have sold more the last 2 months.

"The report revealed that Arkham Knight is the second best-selling game of 2015 behind Mortal Kombat X, and first if hardware bundles are included. Arkham Knight exceeded sales of 2011's Batman: Arkham City. Additionally, the NPD report notes that the PlayStation 4 version of Arkham Knight "had the highest sales for a single SKU across any Batman game since NPD has been tracking the industry."

So basically that means it beat Arkham City on 360. I have no idea how much NPD says Akrham City sold on 360 back then but VGC has it at 681K. However VGC combined Arkham City games for Oct 2011 is only 1.32 million, so it's almost 200K short. I would think at least 100K of that 200K shortfall would go to 360 which would make 360 ~781K. So from NPD we can be pretty sure that PS4 AK > 780K without bundles counted --> Xb one + PC <470K, given AK<MKX LTD (~1.25M). 780K PS4 ~65% of 1.2M. So seems like 65%PS4/35% Xb one +PC is about right. I assume we can almost ignore PC physical sales since the game was totally broken on PC and hardly anyone buys PC games physical anyway so probably <1% is PC.

More support than the Sega Saturn?  Maybe more support than the N64.

Yeah, at this rate the Sega Saturn will end up with quite a few more games than the Wii U.

Titanfall: 1,000,000

Splatoon: 136,000

BUT, with this trend we can expect Splatoon > Titanfall lifetime easy...

Wasn't Splatoon released at the very end of the month, though? Compared to Titanfall which was released earlier in the month.

Yeah, very possible.

Only problem is, everyone would have assumed Wii U/3DS would be the last Nintendo consoles, including developers. Which in turn would have meant again no 3rd party software support, as they literally for the most part only would find out about NX on it's reveal - which is too late to develop/port a game for it's release window. And probably also afterwards, because a release without games is not gonna sell well.

They should have kept it secret, but informed all the devs/publishers about it with an NDA for over a year, but that's hard to achieve without getting tons of leaks

For be correct:

Splatoon in 1 week: 136,000

Titanfall in 4 weeks: 1,000,000
