MHW and DBFZ have really blown my expectations away.

People are expecting too much imo, 2 million ps4 being the highest selling platform

You were right if only for the first week ;)



For comparison, XV took a month to ship out 1.5 million copies and X2 launched with 1.4 million.

This is outpacing XV2 faster than I thought. Fully expect it to sell more than 4 million by a year's time or even more if it goes to the Switch by then. This is going to be the best selling fighting game since Tekken 5.

Mortal Kombat X sold 5 million the year it launched. It got an XL version the next year. Surely must be 7 million by now. I'm not sure DBFZ will sell more than 7 million units.



I was only regarding single SKUs. Otherwise, SFIV has sold over 8.6 million copies with its eighteen editions and would have the honors. I did also dismiss Smash, which might not be right (but whatever). Has there not been any update on MK X's sales after the confirmation of over 5 million copies?

Good start. I think is on track for my 6 million prediction. Would love to see even more than that though!

Tekken 7 took many months to sell in 2 million. Current numbers are 3 million. I can see Tekken 7 do over 4 million lifetime, maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaybe 5 million but i don't think so.

Anyway, so far Dragon Ball Fighter Z is doing way better, so should be easy able to surpass it. Like others people said, this is the best selling fighting game since Mortal Kombat X.

 

P.S

Btw Smash 4 is almost 15 million units, since you talked about it.



I mentioned Tekken 5 (not 7), which sold over 6 million copies solely on the PS2. The franchise isn't what it once was in popularity. Also, as far as I'm aware, Brawl is the best selling fighting game ever (single SKU) with 13.25 million copies sold. Your "Smash 4" is Smash 4 and 5. =

No. I don't see the point in separating SKU's as its the total sales that matter and even this DBFZ sales include 3 platforms.
