I'd figure closer to 100K if you include pre-orders and Epic Games Store.

Haha same! Although they must have at least some sales there for Sony to continue publishing their PC ports on the storefront.

Closer to 400-500K day 1. With online games it usually is x3 to x4 on launch day concurrent players vs purchased. If we check Palworld they had 5m sold with 1.5m concurrent. I'd assume the discrepancy is higher with single player games. Closer to 6x to 7x. People all over the world don't play at the same time nor have 10 hour sessions.

Seeing how it remains 1st place on top sellers won't doubt it sell a million in its first weekend on PC platforms.
