There's no point doing a specific press release unless it's hit a noticeable mile stone, I imagine it's still the under a million worldwide so that's why we haven't heard anything, might have a better idea after the npd tonight
We actually saw this with the Witcher 3, where they waited and chose not to give out the one-day, three-day, or first-week numbers, instead giving out the 2-week ones when it hit 4 million. I suspect Nintendo would rather give a 3-Week 500k/750K than a 2-week 450K.

They did gave us a pre-order figure of around 1.5 million ahead of the launch. They wanted a bigger number for the follow up news hence the wait for 4 million sales.

Speaking for Xenoblade and Famitsu:

Dengeki also stopped tracking it. They gave an update when Xenoblade Chronicles X was released and it was the same figure as 3 or 4 years ago (149.000).

Shipped plus digital was likely at 500k worldwide after the first weekend but that's not a figure worth them making a big deal of

Naah, that's impossible. I think, in the best case, it'll sell in-between Splatoon's debut week (17k) and Splatoon's second week (21k). If it indeed increases, I'll drink my p-...damn, already taken. Ok, I'll suc-that's been overdone, even! Well, I'll just be happy then.
u realise theres only a few k difference for it to have a jump or sell between 17-21k right? lol

the numbers are low so it wont be a surprise if wii u has another tiny jump

I've read here that last week's Wii U numbers were somehow affected by stock issues, and that this is the reason why this week numbers were higher (for MC or also for Famitsu?), so I can't see it being even higher the week after. Hopefully, the Splatoon expected strong third week could help it in dropping slightly (as Moor-Angol said) and still keeping it's "momentum" a bit longer.

i just took a look at amazon chart, both Wii Premium White and MK8 bundle are in high positions :D

(as they were last week, that's the reason I said that )

We know that is currently second in LTD digital charts

Wii U Digital Ranking LTD

1. Dragon Quest X: Nemureru Yuusha to Michibiki to Meiyuu Online
2. Splatoon
3. Pokemon Scramble U
4. Mario Kart 8
5. Art Academy SketchedPad
6. Famicon Remix
7. Super Mario World
8. Super Smash Bros for Wii U - (According to Famitsu estimates 43.550 digital not including download codes)
9. Super Mario 3D World
10. Pikmin 3

http://www.nintendo.co.jp/wiiu/software/ranking.html

43.550 is the very minimum, if Famitsu estimates are accurate.
I have a hard time belieiving that Splatoon week 1 digital sales are higher than ltd digital sales of Mario Kart 8.

Like I said, I guarantee Famitsu digital ranking for this month will show different numbers.

If i'm wrong then i'm wrong.

It moved to that position on its second day on the market.

It has probably yet to reach a million worldwide. That's a possibility since it may not have sold that much in Europe. But we'll probably hear more when NPD and NoA PR drops.
I have no doubt it'll hit a million, but probably not yet because of Europe. Again -- we'll know more with NPD.

They did gave us a pre-order figure of around 1.5 million ahead of the launch. They wanted a bigger number for the follow up news hence the wait for 4 million sales.
That type of pre-order announcement feels out of Nintendo's wheelhouse, though.

I know. I've seen this before. And it's what my previous post was referring to as i've seen loads of people throw out the 43k+ number.
The famitsu digital chart is (apparently) eshop only sales, the Nintendo eshop rankings include download cards too which seem to be selling very well for splatoon, so yeah the numbers probably will be different doesn't mean it isn't selling digitally any less brilliantly than we all think though
 
Any news of how Mobius has been faring after launch?

I wanna know if FFXVI is mobile hehehehe.
Down from its launch to about to 16. Will be interesting to see how the event cycle goes.

Unless they're insane I imagine one will happen within the first month, so we can see if anyone is sticking around and responding to those.

Their top games can vary a lot. As an example of one of the four they list as major financial contributors:

Big budget is relative. Monolithsoft is still the ~100-person studio they have always been. It's not like they grew into a 200-person studio to make Xenoblade X. Towards the end of their PS2 dev cycle for "big" RPGs, Xenosaga had declined to about 170k for the third game. That didn't stop them from getting Xenoblade made on the Wii later on, and that sold like 160k. That didn't stop them from getting Xenoblade X made, which should sell about 150k when all is said and done. Maybe a bit less. They've also had games like Disaster which was by no means cheap to make. That cratered even harder. Sold less than 30k and wasn't even released in the US.

I don't see why things would drastically change overnight. Maybe their next project won't be a console RPG which takes 4-5 years to release, but they'll still continue making RPGs unless Nintendo decides to repurpose the studio into a pure asset studio. They already have Monolithsoft Kyoto for that though. :p

Anyway, the bigger question right now isn't "will Monolithsoft continue to make big console RPGs" but "will Nintendo have a console next generation". :)
Wasn't Xenoblade an issue of Nintendo undershipping the title though? It did remarkably well in terms of used sales (easily doubles the # of people who actually played it in Japan).

Oh well that makes sense.

And makes me look stupid.

I'm sorry, I take back what I said.

Interesting. Looks like Rhythm Heaven didn't lose its appeal like a lot of the new ips established during the Wii/DS era that flopped considerable.

So, Splatoon is the Type O- blood donor to the Wii U on life support. Unfortuantely the launch forecast for future Wii U games is, well, complete shit. What can Nintendo realistically do to keep things going? Launch new ad campaigns for previously released titles?

Great news for the franchise.^_^

This show that the franchise seems to still be doing quite well even after the transition DS to Wii and now 3DS.

If I remember also, this week 3DS launched new white color right? There will be chance of it increasing 3DS number too.

Yeh it shows that some of Nintendo's Blue Ocean titles did seem to keep a fanbase (Tomodachi Life, Nintendogs, and now Rhythm Heaven).

NDS Rhythm Tengoku Gold - 150.000 <50%> [300.000 units shipped]

First week sales:

NDS Rhythm Tengoku Gold - 212.877 <57,10%> [372.814 units shipped]

After the NPD thread, it's kind of depressing realizing the Wii U sold more in Japan in May than it did in the US. Then again, I guess Japan got Xeno X & DQX at the tail end of April which we didn't.... (or just won't in the case of DQX)
