Dying Light sold 5M+ on PS4, Xbox One and PC as of the 13th August 2015.
VGChartz has all 3 versions at 1.6M. Of course there are digital sales, but I don't think that they are so huge!

Don't forget it was digital only in Europe for the first month so digital sales are likely to be higher than usual.

Tagging. I'll look around Nintendo titles tonight.

Bet with bluedawgs: I say Switch will outsell PS4 in 2018, he says PS4 will outsell Switch. Winner gets avatar control for a month.

Nice thread!:P Is it only for software, or we can post about inaccuracies in hardware numbers?:P Especially,
for legacy consoles!:P



This is just for software.

What about errors in software tracking?  

i.e. Dr. Vita & Blowoverking pointed out that we've tracked the PS3 version of Jak Collection rather than the Vita version (as there's no entry for the Vita version but sales of the PS3 version spiked on the week of the Vita version's release).

Separate thread or here?

Edit: Nvm, see you already answered to him.

As of the 31st March 2012 Tekken Tag Tournament 2 shipped 1.5M on PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii U.
Three and a half years later the game still hasn't reached 1.5M sold on VGChartz.
Definitely undertracked by a good margin.

Thanks for your posts Dr.Vita. Will add them to the list later today after I've had a look at them.

It probably was already posted somewhere (only saw the overall quarterly numbers), but here are graphs from Nintendo's Financial Results Briefing: http://www.nintendo.co.jp/ir/en/library/events/151029/index.html

EDIT: nevermind, the thread is only about software. The individual software numbers were already posted.

EDIT2: but still, 2014 and 2015 hardware numbers should be adjusted.
