Also known as how a smart release date can make or break a game. This wouldnt even push 1m if it launched in November.

Wow, that was really bad tracking. I don't even care that we don't get regular VGC numbers anymore.

Is this is the worst software tracking vgchartz has ever done? I mean, they have the game at 1.5mil physical units sold. And i kinda doubt the game sold +3.5mil units digitally. Anybody know the reason for this massive undertaking?

Very impressive for a new franchise this early into a console lifecycle. The FPS will never die it seems.

Clearly VGC is the almighty source for accurate numbers and we should just deny those given from actual developers.
