Confirmed it Blops 2 and not a mistake

BLOPS II got back in the top 10 due to Xone backwards comparability... amazing.

It was a smart move. February was too crowded and it pretty much had April all to itself. Much better window for it.

All 1st party Nintendo, too. And I think even GS is starting to get out of the Vita business so it's only going to get worse.

i mean, being cheap wont help it being on the top 10 because NPD uses revenue not copies sold as the metric

Judging by the individual platform charts, it's probably safe to say that the vast majority of LCU sales were on the Switch.

In any event, the Japanese domination on the top of the charts is really exciting.

Wasn't that cheap. They jack up prices when BC games hit. Digitally it was still 60 bucks until this week it dropped to 20.

Which honestly makes it even more impressive. Blops 2 likely outsold IW several times over.

Nintendo Switch (no digital sales)

Lego City Undercover

Puyo Puyo Tetris
Super Bomberman R
The Binding of Isaac Afterbirth+
Just Dance 2017
Skylanders Imgainators

Didn't think Lego City Undercover would've been higher than 1-2 Switch (Nintendo said it had "strong sales" in April, whatever that means though). Certainly the drop-off between 2nd and 3rd must be important (more than 100k). Still, it's a safe assumption that the Switch version of LCU played a major role in bringing total sales up to 13th in the charts.

It's impressive to see Siege still chugging along nicely. Still hoping it paves the way for more tactical shooters on consoles going forward.

Being new doesnt necessarily mean that people have to care...look at WiiU/3DS after the initial launch sales. Meanwhile Switches still sell out asap and people wanna play more and more games on that machine.

Pokémon Stars will smash the Switch into orbit. It's already rocketing off through the clouds right now.

ARMS will be the first test if new IP from Nintendo can do it, but all signs point to yes at the moment.

I expect it to be higher unit-wise as well, just that the use of "packaged dollar sales" seemed like a particular specific term to be used.

isn't there also a $79 Version of the game?

NES Classic was number 2 yet they are discontinuing it. Such a stupid move.

But I have no doubts people heard it was being ceased and went out and bought shitloads of them.

P5 doing 5x P4's launch is great, but we should also remember P4 came out on the PS2 in 2008. Its launch was probably tiny. Anybody still got the numbers for it?

Most likely yes. We're not 100% certain though since we don't know if we have Origin sales included, but for the console versions, unquestionably.

Good to know all best seller games in 2017 did better than 500k.
