"Slam Dunk" might be an exaggeration. It's sales are fine, just as the game is fine.

It could have and should have been better. That goes for both the game and the sales.

2 years ago people were saying sales would be through the roof for the first pokemon console game.

They are through the roof 1.3m for 3 days with out even knowing the digital distribution is very high.

... Not for a pokemon game. Predictions were made that this would be the best selling pokemon game since red/blue.



LTD: PS4 - 125m, Switch - 110m, XBO - 51m

2020: PS4 - 10m, Switch - 21.5m, XBO - 2.5m, PS5 - 4.5m, XBX - 2.8m

So 6m shipped, for comparison Pokemon Sun and Moon shipped 10m day one. Will have better legs though, I expect 15m still.

Edit: NVM seems that it is infact sold-through.

This isn't shipped. It's sold
Admit it Barkley, you are wrong.

You're right, at least according to Zhuugex it's sold-through so it seems it's not shipped.


Pokemon X & Y - 4m
Pokemon Sword & Shield - 6m
Pokemon Sun and Moon - 7.2m

It seems it's done very well.

It's not shipped but sold. there is a big difference.

And as for the number you give abour Sun and Moon, i'm not sure it's correct:

And according to ZhugeEX X/Y sold 4m WW week one.

EDIT: you beat me in correcting you lol

Speaking of, this apparently marks the first time a Microsoft game managed to sell 1 million in Japan.

Seems like they are still not dead in Japan. Just needed to buddy up with a certain company.

Minecraft switch with digital surpassed 1.4 million in Japan.

It only needs 50K more to surpass the best selling Vita game:  Minecraft the Vita version

And you think that would happen in 3 days? Sw/Sh sold 2m through to consumer in Japan and 6m ww in those 3 days.



Wow huge sales! Dont see how anybody is disappointed in this. Globally 6 million sold in three days, could maybe do 11 or 12 million by end of year I'd guess. Japan i bet it has a shot at surpassing splatoon by end of year, and passing smash for the number one spot early next year. This will easily be a 20+ million seller.

Sword/Shield is probably around 1.6-1.7 million with digital.

I expect S/S will outsell Sun/Moon when all is said and done.

Wow, digital was much larger than I expected. Astounding!
