Super news. Hopefully good legs

Wow, that is extremely impressive. I hope this means good things for more Western-oriented games.

It's about the same as UC4 and no real significant bump over Horizon. I'd reckon they just got the shipments spot on while judging demand for those two. However, I'm hoping that they misjudged the demand and the 4% can be accounted for in some other way, where the reality is that it sold out and legs will stay strong in the weeks and months to come.

1 million sold in Japan is pretty much guaranteed. That's crazy for a PS4 exclusive.

Wouldn't say a lock, but pretty likely.

...and on the other hand japanese games like Ni No Kuni 2 are sold more in the US and especially Europe than in Japan... JRPGs boom outside Japan...
