Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Splatoon Is Going to Hit 1mil in Sales, and It Wont Take Very Long! (1 Month)

anyway, this game is sitting at 20k on the U.S. Preorder chart?  No way it moves a million the first month... I don't even believe it will do that lifetime, but y'all already know my thoughts on that.

Wonderful 101 numbers, right? That means a global aligned first week of 27k

You really want to stick by that prediction for Splatoon?



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

It was at 20k a month and a half ago, that chart is from 28th March. It´s obviously higher now.



I must be the only person who thinks this won't sell that great. I definitely do not see it selling a million in one month. Bundling might help it leg out to a million though (by the end of the year).

Hardly; at the bottom of the last page is a guy who thinks this will sell in the ballpark of 27k first week and 350k lifetime.

You must be the only person not seeing how this is shattering expectations left right and centre. Japan its doing better than xenoblade, Mario 3d world and pikmin 3 in preorders. Nintendo is pushing it insanely hard... I'm not saying it'll do it in a month but it will reach 1 mill and I think it will do it fairly fast. Hopefully by my birthday.

Its number 4 in the charts on the Nintendo Eshop. Factor in the 10% discount involved with the second test fire and it should encourage more digital sales. Plus its number 2 in amazons preorder list, only beat by The Witcher 3. Limited Edition bundle. So it should sell plenty. I think it can crack a million in a month.



Will this game sell 1m units? In it's lifetime possibly. But I'm not sure I see it happening in 2015. Certainly doubt it'll be there by thee end of June.

Look at the hype train Sunset Overdrive had, and that hasn't cracked a million.



RIP Dad 25/11/51 - 13/12/13. You will be missed but never forgotten.

Yeah, I'm sticking with it.  I expect reviews to not be very nice to splatoon which will hurt its legs.  It will sell more opening week and more than w101 in the long run, but not by much.

As long as it ensures a sequel, I feel like this game has an awesome concept, reminds me a bit of super smash brothers where the nintendo 64 once showed the awesome concept, and melee ensured that concept. The gameplay in splatoon is amazing and its really fun, and I want to see expanded like they did with melee.


Agreed. Although I think we'll just see DLC for the life of Wii-u and a sequal for NX. but for now, may29th can't come any sooner.

Well it certainly isn't going to jump 100's of thousands of preorders in a month and a half.  Preorders will probably finish at 30-40k, with an opening week of perhaps 50-60k here in the states.
