Yeah, as nice as this sight is, you have to take the actual numbers with a grain of salt. Some games are never updated after their first few weeks, others are listed under multiple titles separating by regions their true numbers. However given everything, the 3DS port, the representation in Smash Bros, the semi sequel and more, I think the key thing to take away is that Xenoblade is a success by Nintendo standards so more games should be in the pipeline down the road.

On June 4th, 2016 this website was stating that Xenoblade had sold 58,040 in the USA alone. VGCHARTZ has no F'ing idea what they are doing here apparently. I've got screenshots showing it.

I bought it last month of Amazon for 45 USD. The so called "World Edition". It's the NA version made for other countries that use the NTCS system. The game is just a bless. I really hope this price cut would make more people buy the game, enjoy it, and show Nintendo that we all need this kind of games ...

my favorite wii game probably, although it's hard to compare to games like wii sports or mario galaxy. Awesome story, voice acting, presentation, gameplay, the scope was incredible. I went back and played FF12 after this, and this is such a massive improvement over FF12 even if it is a little similar. Just so much more fun to play and story is so much more involved.

So sad this game is for a Nintendo console, on PS3 it would be even more amazing and with huge sales. I always buy games when the prize drops, but for this one like 6 months after launch it was impossible for to find it new. The best RPG of this gen and Nintendo wasted it.

I'd say, since Nintendo of America sent this game out to die, stocking this game in ONE store, and not marketing it, as well as the continued stock issues, this game did somewhat well. A better original printing run, as well as a big presence at E3 could have really helped this game.

On another note, if you still want this game, you better look long and hard because this game is rare, and goes for $100+ on eBay.

Nintendo and Monolithsoft are working on something for Wii U, and I want whatever it is. The team behind Xenoblade Chronicles have something beautiful lined up, but all we got this morning from this morning's Wii U Direct broadcast were a few short snippets of gameplay. Whatever it is looks big and open, and it features parties of three going at big beasts, not unlike Monster Hunter.

When dude hopped into a mech at the edge of a cliff and flew off into the sunset I felt a rush of goosebumps come over me, starting from my knees and ending up at the very top of my head. And then they fought in these mechs! Oh My GOD!

It all ended with a big painted 'X' on the screen, telling us that the Xeno series will continue on Wii U.

As for what we know, Kunihiko Tanako, the character designer of two of my favorite games ever, Xenogears and Xenosaga, is on board. The music from Japanese film and TV composer Hiroyuki Sawano had me all choked up. Finally, Tetsuya Takahashi, the director of Xenogears, Xenosaga, and Xenoblade is at the helm. How could this not be the best thing ever made?

Considering the circumstances, I'd say XENOBLADE was lucky to get the sales it did. 720k is quite an accomplishment for a new IP, especially a JRPG that initially had little to no chance of coming here. TLS has only managed half of this total, but even so, it's nothing to sneeze at. Together, XB and TLS combined have sold 1.1 million overall.

Yes you can't seem to find it brand new anymore here in UK.. except online. Most of the video game stores such as GAME and Gamestation outlets have been closed down. The British voice acting takes a while to get used too and I am not too fond of the distinct character facial designs but the combat seems promising ...
