I really diddnt touch my wiiu a lot. But this game is the reason why my xbone is not getting on anymore. It has been like this since launch of the game and im not even a nin fan. Imma sega fan. This game gives me phantasy star feeling ala mass effect ala dragon age ala xenoblade wii. This game is a beast. It even made me buy the xeno 3ds port. My life is on a pause here

Well we know the Japan numbers are right as well as the France, Germany andUK approximately. The US is the one niggling point but I would say the sales are within a +/-50k range overall.

Not too shabby. This gives me hope it will sell over 1mill.

Also, not surprised it sold the most in the US.

How well does this games first week fair compared to the original?

NewBeginning (on 19 December 2015)

We're counting the launch numbers for territories in which the game was previously released as first-week sales now? Will this be the case for Rise of the Tomb Raider when it releases?

Nogamez NewBeginning (on 19 December 2015)

Obviously. We always do that on this site?? Because that is its launch week sales. So yeah ROTR will be the same xbox 1st week plus ps4 and pc 1st week

I can't find any examples of it on this site for any other games that were released much earlier in Japan, or even more pointedly, for games that were released later in Japan.

When its the same platform I think its okay.

Nogamez NewBeginning (on 20 December 2015)

Why does it have to be launched in japan first? For instance yoshi was released in japan and Europe way before NA. Oh yeah and a lot off late PC releases get grouped together as re-aligned launch windows

Happened with the last game too. And this one has a deliberately Western aesthetic in all aspects except the character faces.

StuOhQ Sprash (on 20 December 2015)

Yeah, because sandbox/open world games never pull bigger numbers from the NA market....

What the heck ? Only 225K in the US ??? I tho it was 300K ?

JTurner82 peterdavid12345 (on 21 December 2015)

This is still a solid result all things considered. The original XBC, if you remember, opened to about 145k. This is above that for sure. And if we add in the 35-40k from week 2, that should put XBCX's numbers at the roughly 260k mark. XBC was at 170k for week 2. So this is good numbers either way.

No reliable numbers IMO. Cant wait for Cream sugar source from Neo Gaf in NPD month though..

Well. Good thing the numbers don't depend on your opinion. They're facts, and most of these numbers have already been confirmed correct.
