This is absurd...I would have not believed that they could logisticaly make 1.3M in 5 days in Japan.

Well, they don't produce them on the fly...

MH World was around 2M first week on PS4 counting digital. Next on the list was DQ XI (Only PS4) with around 1'1M first week counting digital too... Ultimate should be between the two of them.

Shit I forgot it was so high digitally. So it beat dq11 but behind mhw. Very impressive from smash.

I'm a bit surprised that Tekken is ahead of Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat, I didn't realize it was that strong of a franchise.
