Should not be able to make its way to 5.5m and surpass the N64 version. If it will reach 6m depends on how much more it will sell this year, imo.

Considering the weak sales of the Wii U, this has a pretty great attach rate. I think it will be able to surpass the original Super Smash Bros. (it has 0.67 million to go), but that's about it. 6 million is not a given and I definitely do not think it will reach Melee's figure of 7.07 million.

Nintendo says 4.03m as of september 30.

I'd say it will outsell the N64 original, that's definitely not bad. Together with the 3DS version, it'll be the best selling Smash Bros. ever, and thus, correct me if I'm wrong, the number 2 best selling fighting game after all versions of Street Fighter 2.

@Sky Render, you're wrong, According to Nintendo the game is at 3.39m units (SHIPPED+DIGITAL), not 3.91m.
VGChartz tracks units sold (and retail only), so if you remove the digital sales and the units on shelves, it's in fact pretty much spot on with Nintendo's figure.

Message | Report
Sky Render posted 28/01/2015, 05:48
According to Nintendo's sales figures for Q3 2014, this game is severely undertracked. Their numbers are 3.91m units sold worldwide vs. current tracking of 2.91m for VG Chartz data. While I'm sure some of that has to do with digital sales, the discrepancy remains pretty significant.

So since it's overtracked by ~200k in the US you can say I was bang-on. Europe didn't help it reach 3m+

Fascinating enough, if You do a percentage comparison, Smash for Wii sold 12,5 million at an install base of 100 million, and this sold almost 3 million at a base of 9 million. Thats 30% vs 12,5% ! I would say Nintendo has more than doubled their ratio for this game !

Real glad to see this selling so much, but I kinda wish it was more of a system seller like MK8.

Lack of GC adapters really dragged the numbers down IMO. I almost didn't buy the game, because here in Finland you could only get adapter by preordering the bundle. Only like 4 stores sold those (excluding foreign sites) and those were out of stock lightning fast. Still waiting the seperate release of the adapter which is apparently in middle of january (not sure though, can't find any reliable info). GJ Nintendo.

Next week will go down to about 70-80k in Japan. Europe maybe 50-60k. USA is a wildcard but I'm going to guess around 150k. So ~280k from the big 3 regions and 300k+ globally. Heard it here first

This is 480k already. It will be at lest 750k by the next update. And then the week after that a for sure 1 million since it will launch in Japan. Smash Bros is huge there. The 3DS launch was huge in Japan with over 900k and the Wii U is more hyped. It should sell at least 500k in Japan FW. I expect Europe launch to be at least 150k. Wii U isn't popular in Europe so it will underperform there

FW seems slightly overtracked in the US unless digital was very small.
VGChartz' first week shows its first 2 days but Nintendo said that it sold 490k (including digital) in 3 days. So if we assume it sold perhaps 5% of its totals digitally (a low ratio compared to most new games) then the game supposedly only sold 45k in its third day compared to 210k average in its first two days (so maybe 300k->100k->45k?). This would imply a big drop should happen next week but since it's BF week we probably won't see much of a drop

@Nuvendil Amazon does not directly sell Nintendo hardware, they only sell software. Hardware is sold on Amazon only through third-party and marketplace sellers, so you will never see standard MSRP for Nintendo hardware on Amazon, at least until they come to some sort of agreement, but it's been a couple years now.
