I'm curious, the first week USA sales for Pokemon X/Y, is that for Oct 12 only? The game was released worldwide on the last day of the week so if makes even 900k in the USA for a single day would be incredible. If it is indeed a full week (Oct 12-Oct18) then the sales estimate would put it slightly below the Diamond and Pearl, which is still good, and understandable since there were more DS sold in the USA when the 4 gen games came out compared to the 6 gen games for 3DS.
