Seems really low....
Everything seems low compared to BLOPS or FIFA. Those two games are total anomalies.

Hardly seems worth going to other markets with big budget PR teams other than UK, Germany , and France.

The list's confusing. Why would you list the sales figures for each title but then not show a chart of best-selling games by units?

Other than the sports titles (soccer and F1), this list is probably similar to the North American list isn't it?

What would be last year's sellthrough for GT5 in Europe+USA+Japan? Somewhere between 3.5-4M?

Ouch at GT5, how the mighty have fallen. Good shit at those FIFA 11 and Black Ops figures though, great games.

Data from the previous threads.

400k in Nov
560k in Dec
For Japan, 563k

And bit of an edit, this actually covers 2010 for them too. 6.3million shipped

Kagari said:
That was my guess also.
Very low for a numbered FF.
NPD March: 1322k
2nd month, it was completely out of the top 20. Took a while to find this link, I thought there was a better one too. Less thank 96k
Japan has it at 1905k

And most articles are showing that they shipped 5million+ worldwide.

I'm probably just being daft (dead tired after surgery), but how exactly is that list sorted (that is, what are the numbers on the sides)? Can't open PDF files currently to check the original source.

EDIT: I mean, games are often released with the same MSRP, so what accounts for the strange differences in that list?

Price cuts and sales.

Singleplayer games tend to drop quite quickly after launch for example.

I know this is revenue, but I still feel that Call of Duty is Justin Beiber/Lady Gaga of gaming.


It's the ultimate easily-absorbed shit pop music, that requires nothing from the viewer. It lowers itself to such a level that anyone and anybody can take it in.



I like mainstream things, but there CoD is not good mainstream. Fifa, GT5 and Wii fit is not my type/interest, so won't comment on those.



It's crazy to me that every game of that list is a sequel, unless you count the balance board as a unique IP. Even if so, then FFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUU


I'll rather let myself get raped by a thousand hipsters than acknowledge this as something that is not boring and predictable as hell.
