Good performance in UK. This means it did better than Ghost of Tsushima and Final Fantasy VII:Remake which is not too shabby.



Signature goes here!

Good to see that the limited release isn't that limited.



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

But I tought there was supposed to be shortage because one retailer canceled it’s preorders...

Well several sites are out of stock in the UK such as Amazon, which doesn't usually happen with games. So I'd call it a shortage due to limited release.

It’s seems more related to stocks selling fast than limited release.

Well obviously it's both. Limited release is only a problem if the stock sells. The stock sold, so now the limited release is a problem. Still it's not like it's impossible to find, just harder than your usual video game that is available everywhere.



We'll just remember,

Limited release =/= limited stocks.
Of course, the game is selling incredibly well so shortages are to be expected at first but the game will probably get a truck load of shipments during the next few months so availability is not really a concern at the moment.

Perhaps this game actually is big enough to be Nintendo's holiday title.
