I predicted 1 mil for Europe...... sooo thats 500k more! Insane!

I estimate just short of 4m worldwide for launch week.

Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Great news that it`s the biggest ever. Although that actually seems kind of small compared to Japan (considering the population difference), but I guess that just means Pokemon`s still got a lot of potential for growth in Europe.

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

According to VGChartz, XY did 630k FW in Europe. Soooo that basically doubled it!

This is beyond amazing. And I thought it would be much less in the UK!

Spectacular, I'm sure Pokemon Go had something to do with it. Of course the fact that it looks better than the 2 previous ones has helped too.

So 3.5m in 1st week just for Japan and Europe, so that basically means past 5m with US. :D

Sooo they pretty much sold out 50% of the initial 10M of shipments in the firts week ? sweet !

Amazing sales. I wonder how its sales will evolve with the Switch not being BC with 3DS, and with the possible Stars version coming soon.

You know it deserves the GOTY.
