XC 2 at 170k!!!! Over 10k the best selling XC game, and that just a bit over 1 month!

I just want now confirmarion that the game is doing as well in the US.



My (locked) thread about how difficulty should be a decision for the developers, not the gamers.

https://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/thread.php?id=241866&page=1

Holy shit those are some good ps4 numbers. Cod and EDF doing very good too.

Someone on gaf said it should be called Sony Defense Force because its stopping the top 10 being all Nintendo lol

Have you noticed Arms is stealthly selling pretty well? 340k first 6 months for a new IP in Japan is pretty big. It’s basically selling like a Yakuza game, and it has legs!



Bet with Teeqoz for 2 weeks of avatar and sig control that Super Mario Odyssey would ship more than 7m on its first 2 months. The game shipped 9.07m, so I won

  • Switch – 146,006 (134,519) +8.54%
  • PlayStation 4 – 91,683 (49,631) +85.09%
  • 3DS – 45,737 (36,814) +24.23%
  • PlayStation Vita – 11,929 (7,970) +49.67%
  • Xbox One – 199 (358) - 44.41%
  • PS3 and Wii U are dead! (no longer tracked!)



    Signature goes here!

    This is reeeeally encouraging for the future of the series. I hope it crosses 1m on its first 6 months so it sends a message to Nintendo.

    Holy crap its going to beat wii Launch aligned.

    Also 3ds launch aligned is slowing down while switch goes UP so it might catch up before march.
