INCITATUSBR (on 10 October 2018)

SMP sold more than Spider-man (125,154 units) in its first week in Japan. Well done!!

I suppose that may not be true. PlayStation games are often top heavy as opposed to good legs like Nintendo games. If SMP sells like lower end MP games, then it will be in the 1-2 million range (like Mario Party 10 on Wii U). However, if SMP sells like the DS or Wii games it could go over 8 million lifetime.
