Thats not the reason why DQ XI did well on the west.Its simply because its a good game.Dont twist the data.

Also it didn't double sales, it doubled revenue. Unit sales might actually be closer 1:1. Still really good but not really that crazy. 

$40 vs $60. More than double dollar sales. I'd wager it's closer to 1.5:1 in favor of PS4. But to say that platform had nothing to do with it is kinda weird. Of course the platform with the most JRPGs has JRPGs that sell very well. It's not a slam on Nintendo platforms, but rather that it's the place that makes the most sense. I imagine the Switch port if done well, should be successful too.

I thought it was $34.99 for Dragon Quest XI (must have been maybe CAD only thing, back when our dollar was amazing?)? I did mean might actually be closer to 1:1 than 2:1, I didn't mean to imply it was 1:1.

So only 9th and 10th spot for 3rd parties on Switch... Also great doing for Sony on the Yearly ranking, besides having 2 on the Top3, all the rest have done great on PS.

Sales will be massive. Over 10m after Christmas? Should be quite easy.

If it's first month in USA alone is 2.6-3.3m, globally it's probably around 8m already.

You forgot Megaman 11 at #5.



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

Over 20m lifetime? If Smash is scared it's not scared enough.
