1m just isn't possible, but it may reach up to 800k which is very impressive.

Comparing the data for 09 and 08, undertracked or not, this title is currently a little under 100k over where 08 was in its 8th week. Not bad. Hopefully if it is undertracked, we'll see the results soon.

Yea, should be around 400k by now. Which is pretty insane. Last years version only made it to 600k after a whole year.

Still tracking a few thousand above 08 for this year...I'm still hoping the numbers stay up there. This game seems to deserve it.

@ Aj_habfan and Gearbox

Sony is not stupid. If they wasn't making money for these games then they wouldn't be making them. Baseball isn't as propular and that's one of the reasons for the sales. Sony may not be paying alot to make this game. As long as they making a profit they will continue making the game. Baseball games never did big numbers. MVP by EA sold millions but not big numbers. I guess EA gave up on MLB and focus on Madden.

@Gearbox

The only reason it doesn't sell allot is because its not advertised enough like Madden which is the same game every year unlike The Show that gets greatly improved each year. I don't think there is a game that has sold a tremendous amount (4million+) That didn't have constant advertisement. Great sales usually mean you had great advertisement for it.

There are people I know that only buy MLB The Show, NCAA and Madden in the year and they're perfectly happy.

Sony is stupid for making these? Last years sold what, 1.3m combined on all platforms? That's smart, it's only a yearly update. What's stupid is continuing with their basketball franchise.

They do love Baseball, but they buy Konami's Pro Baseball Spirits instead. The series sells over 100k each year on PS3.

Yes it is and it should because it is the better baseball game. Sony is gonna be known for their baseball and hopefully they can establish their other sport genres within a few years.

This game is being sold out in some places I see. That's good. This is the best MLB game out there. I think Sony should talk to MLB in making the game license like EA got the NFL to license Madden. Sony is the only one making a better MLB game.

This game is sold out in my local Target, Best Buy and Gamestop.

There were only 2 copies left in Wal Mart. Also read from other peoples post on forums that it's sold out locally for them also. Hopefully it sells a good 100k+ first week?
