Also I've just noticed how low Shadow of the Colossus is, I don't really know what I expected from that either, at least lifetime anyway, I mean, it IS tracking higher than the PS3 version overall so far (It had a great first week in comparison, at least in the west), but by week it's already below... then again we ARE only six weeks into it, and I'm sure it'll manage to crawl past 1.14m (PS2) and then 1.34m (PS3) eventually...

Didn't Capcom announce that MHW was at 7.8 million shipped by the end of March? It must be super undertracked. It's not even gonna reach 5 mil by that time on the 'chartz.

Did their numbers include digital maybe?

How are those numbers for Kirby by the way? Not sure what to expect from the series since I've never really followed it... 

We know it's the fastest selling Kirby game to date in both the US and the UK; VGChartz data is incomplete, but it might well be the fastest selling game in the series to date globally. In fact, it probably is.

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

Kirby should be massively undertracked here. As far as I know, sold through was about 1m for its first two weeks.

The real data is that Kirby sold 1.1 million in its first 5 weeks, including digital. Here at VGChartz it should be close to 950k - 1000k at that time.



Switch Friend Code = 5965 - 4586 - 6484

Was about to reply, but yeah, he's right

Although, I still think they undertracked US FW sales by 50K or so. I mean, this would mean that Kirby has sold 148K copies in Europe and RoW ... which is way bigger than what Kirby has done there so far.

Kirby's kicking some ass! :D

Skyrim also with big legs. One million is safe, two million could be a possibility if Bethesda drastically cuts the price! that by the way, this is a little strange that neither Doom nor Skyrim have dropped 50 dollars, at least on Amazon.

Where is Skyrim on this list? Oh, nevermind. It's 39th. I forgot that the global link has ranks 30+

Well, Shadow of the Colossus has always been a big niche title. I guess that, in terms of PS4 exclusives, Dad of War stole its thunder. That, and maybe people were a bit dissapointed with The Last Guardian too.



You know it deserves the GOTY.
