GTA 5's debut numbers should put it comfortably above Skyrim and all but the last 3 CoD titles if I'm not mistaken.





I think this is the only sane way to interpret the data. It's astounding it's taken this long for KH to come back to consoles. Even moreso when you consider it's because of the struggles of completing FF XIV & XV.



Limbo sold about 400k WW its first month on XBLA, and it has maybe 1/10th of the content. Journey set records fairly recently PSN. The crowd is there, just not at $60. Origins eventually crawled to a million once it was discounted, this will probably do the same.
TBF considering the install bases of the systems in question it's not really a fair comparison.

Ah thanks, didn't know that!

Nice, you did what I intended to do. Any notable release missing besides Puppeteer?

GTA putting the whole industry on its back
Good thing the game comes out every quarter to carry the industry...

NHL 14, FIFA 14, NBA 2K14...but GAF has never seemed to care much about the sales of sports games.
I think the Madden and FIFA numbers will be helpful. Comparing them to their "next-gen" version sales, that is.

For KH? Even ignoring install base, 8 years between titles with that kind of sales potential (and KH 1.5 isn't even a REAL console sequel, just an enhanced port/remake) is absurd. It sold just 100k less than FFXIII-2, on one platform.

So for Wind Waker...
We know:
-123K = combined for Hardware Bundle with Digital
- And retail for 2 days

We don't know:
- Digital through eshop?
- And obviously retail since then

hmm

Interesting stuff. I assume Rayman will be down to 20 bucks by Black Friday and it will get its sales then. Outside of Mario and Donkey Kong, 2D platformers are not going to have much of a chance selling at full price at retail. And when you look at the competition this month, outside of the Wii U version there were just some huge games to compete with.

Really impressed with Kingdom Hearts. I never saw any marketing for it, and as a PS3 exclusive Square must be happy with those sales.

And PS3 broke the streak! It will probably be short lived, but it certainly puts a wrench in Microsofts PR in the coming months.

No doubt I'm talking mostly about spin offs here of course a proper console mainline would do better likely a lot better was just saying that the series shouldn't be on handhelds sales potential wise because it sold better on consoles with an install base160 million (no idea about how much in America alone) in comparison to a handheld with an install base of aound 20 million at the time kind of isn't fair.

Don't blame yourself Kamiya! Blame Nintendo and their shitty marketing!!!
You can't blame Nintendo. W101 is still in a prominent place in eShop, and has been every since the demo landed.

Anecdotally, I know of a couple of people who had the same experience as me. WiiU owners. Hyped for the game. Played demo. Hated it.

Either the demo did an incredibly poor job at explaining the game - I spent my entire time thinking WTF is going on and seemingly doing well by button mashing - or the game is a turd.

OK, the demo was a pretty bad representation of the game and Kamiya is responsible for that. For a game that was already going to be really niche the demo had to be perfect but it seemed to turn off a lot of people in the demo thread.

Hopefully the game gets another chance down the road at a discount price or something :'(
