I wasn't aware of that "superhero game" is a genre... I guess Labo is the fastest selling "kids toy simulation game" then... Nintendo should make some PR like Insomniac does... :P

You know this isn't actually a bad idea. Would be a good way to boost up Labo xD

I really like this game, but the "fastest selling" title seems kind of arbitrary now that we are several months after release. This is the sort of designation that makes more sense at launch or maybe one month after launch. After that what matters is "best selling". I want to know when Spider-Man becomes the "best selling super hero game". That will actually be an accomplishment.



Not surprising. We will see if it can top The Last Of Us' number (18 M)

I think it would need a PS5 port for that to happen, 10+ million should be possible though.

It is an accomplishment. If/when it becomes the best selling Superhero game overall, it will be an even bigger accomplishment.

One might even say that when it becomes the best selling Superhero game overall it will be a real accomplishment.

Well, I can take your word for it or the guys who work in the industry. Unfortunately, you don't have the credentials. ;)

Pretty impressive then. So with bundles counted, maybe more than 5 million in USA by the end of the year?

 

Very good news about gaming sales everywhere right now, well maybe except for BFV and F76...

Yeah.....

I think EA is on a personal mission to destroy their IPs. Like there is someone there that just has his finger on the self destruct button.

If you are talking about NPD, their opinions are best taken with a grain of salt.  They are a business and always have to present things to make their customers happy.

As I do each month, I'll take them at their word. Yes, they are a business ~ in the business to present data as accurately as possible. No reason for me to not take Matt at his word (otherwise, for consistency, you will have to visit every NPD thread from here on out and question the results). 

If they've ever been wrong, I'd be happy to see how/when and will adjust my view accordingly.
