It broke 1 million in 2 weeks. How many non-PS new IP's have done that this gen?

A bit more than Beyond Two Souls (340k) but far weaker then Heavy Rains 520k first week. So not an impressive opening for Become Ningen.

We already know from Quantic Dream's own statements that this is their most successful title to date, so even if these numbers are accurate, clearly the game has done well on the digital front. It took Heavy Rain 5 weeks to top 1 million, and Detroit only 2.

You got to be joking right. Digital sales are triple if not quadruple what they were in 2013 never mind 2010 depending on file size and we take games like GOW which is a single player games with 35 percent digital sales, that estimate is pretty conservative. So, yeah,this is easily more than HR's 500k first week when its 360k in 2 ddaysays not counting digital sales. WAY more. Perhaps double.
