Forums - Sales Discussion - MHW: 60% outside Japan, 30% Digital of total 5 million sales in 3 days

Look like it has already beaten Capcom expectation of MHW



Around the Network

Definitely looks like it'll be reaching that 10 million mark... did it really sell 5 million already? If shipped, how can "30% digital" be shipped?

That is extremely impressive if true, shot right past Horizon and closing in on BotW in about a week.



Wait i'm confused. Are they changing the statement from sold to shipped or vice versa?

I'm confused as well, especially given it lists "30% digital". How can digital be shipped?

That's actually common. When including shipped figures companies usually include digital sales in the figures.

When they report sold. It is Shipped + Digital. Of course digital is sold through, but the number they provide is what the company gained, not necessarily what the end consumer bought.

That would mean shipped + digital. That's what shipped figures usually are, the + digital part isn't always specified though.

 

As for the topic itself... that makes that supposed 2m figure for Japan including digital seem very unlikely. If it's 30% digital worldwide, why would one of the countries with the lowest digital ratios (typically around 15%) suddenly have a digital sales ratio higher than the west? Seemed fishy to begin with, but this definitely suggests it's not that high.

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

Fucking BEAST.

10 million lifetime gonna happen, one week ago i thought this was way too much, but right now looks like a realistic goal!



2020 predictions: NSW 25m, PS5 6m, XSX 4.5m, PS4 9m, XB1 3m

In December 2019 i predicted 21m Switch, but that was before COVID, obvius increased my predictions.

These MHW news keep getting better and better.
So 2mil Japan and 3 m in the west.
