Biggest opening for a Xenoblade game:

[WII] Xenoblade (Nintendo) - 82.952
[3DS] Xenoblade Chronicles 3D |new 3DS| (Nintendo) {2015.04.02} (¥3.996) - 56.932
[WIIU] Xenoblade Chronicles X # (Nintendo) {2015.04.29} (¥8.316) - 85.586
[NSW] Xenoblade Chronicles 2 (Nintendo, 12/01/17) – 97,732
[NSW] Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition (Nintendo, 05/29/20) – 90,789
[NSW] Xenoblade Chronicles 3 (Nintendo, 07/29/22) – 112,728

I was guessing over 140k for Xenoblade, but digital is probably much higher than for Xenoblade 2.

Prolly a bit but moreso, the Limited Edition is also only sold on My Nintendo Store which prolly ends up as another good boost.

I'd say, first week sales adding those two variables would add up to over 150K at least.

Good progression for the series. Though, Worldwide numbers are more important since that's in the west where Xenoblade does best.

The ps5 is not the only one scalped. 

PS5 has 39k, we need to see up another ps5 game, besides the GT7 bundle. 

Ps plus extra and premium should keep them busy

Plus doesn´t have any big increase. Japan is a heavy focus on the physical market. This movement and doesn´t have any increase, without the bundle, seems more scalping than consumers.

Those on the ps plus essential can upgrade to extra or premium. Do we know how many upgraded to extra or premium? The people who upgraded to the higher tiers are definitely buying less games. I've only bought 1 game since I upgraded to extra. 



Here we go again with "digital not being a thing in Japan". Gotta keep that agenda going strong.



Series-best opening for Xenoblade 3 and all three current gen systems posting excellent numbers, all things considered.

Four of the top ten are third party Switch titles.

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023. (And over 130 million lifetime)

Here we go again "digital is 90% of Ps5 market", without any indication of the same market, against low digital estimates by the white book.

Looks like the Nintendo Switch version of Nobunaga’s Ambition is holding on better than the PS4 version and will most likely surpass it.

Nintendo said digital has reached 56%, and Sony said digital has reached 79%. But I guess digital doesn't exist in Japan, you know the 2nd biggest video game market in the world. I guess this digital trend is a myth.
