Single player games look to do particularly awful. No way Yakuza 6 is less than 200k global.

Yeah that doesn’t make sense, VGC has the game at over 600k sold, meaning it’s likely at around a million with digital added.

The thread title should be changed. These stats have not been leaked. They have been extrapolated from other information that was recently made publicly available.

so they a tracking trophies?

They use trophies to extrapolate the amount of players.

It was always known how rare a certain trophy is. Therefore you could always tell that, for example, 1% won a certain trophy but you never knew just how many people won it, so you could never extrapolate to 100%. Now they seem to be giving out a few numbers.

Probably a mistake since its listed as Global, but the game has a Japanese trophy list and one for the rest of the world, so it's likely only for one of these.

Don't know how accurate/trustworthy these numbers are, but if they are remotely close to reality FUCKIN' YIKES for Shenmue, the third entry is dead on arrival

Indie game where you use gravity to flip upside down. Platformer. Fun style, one of the first big indie hits (early 2010, predated Super Meat Boy)

Wow Fifa gets average 30 million players a year?



Didn’t know mortal kombat was that big o.O



How does Red Dead 2 have only 6million players in mid-end Nov when VGC has its retail version at 8 million sold as of mid November?
This ain’t adding up
