By end of 2015, Nintendo sold 4.06 million, VGC has Splatoon at 4,035,000.
25,000 unit is of course toooooo low. we already know in many region digital sales are huge, and of course, some copies are in the store, and not sold to consumer.

Now VGC has the game at 4.30m. I believe Nintendo should easy ship another 400K, most likely more.

4.5 million by end of March seem about right. So, difference between Nintendo and VGC should be 200k or so. Still overtracked, but with this trend the numbers should start looks at least realistic by September 2016, if VGC countinue to undertrack Splatoon.

I don't get why GVC just don't adjust the numbers in 2015, but oh well...

@OneKartVita

VGC know that lifetime sales by end of 2015 are overtracked, but VGC has not adjusted it for... Some reasons...

But since they know it's overtracked, they are now completely undertracked the weely sales, so at some points they will be spot on.

Wait for the Nintendo quarter report on April, and you will see if Splatoon is really "slowing down". ;)

It might be overtracked, but not THAT much. That 850k number doesn't bundles and we know that the Nov bundle sold 140k. Add another 200k from May and Dec bundles and Splatoon would be at around 1.2m in the US.

Apperently though, the NPD numbers did not include bundles. While the Splatoon bundle only came out fairly late, one could probably still add some 200-300k to these numbers. In other words, still overtracked in US, but not as much as I feared at first.

@Tbone51: Looks like you where right, seems like Splatoon was overtracked by quite a lot in NA. However, I do believe Splatoon is actually undertracked in europe and rest of the world, so this might even out. We will know more when Nintendo releases it's quartal numbers by the end of the month.

@OneKartVita - Halo 5 didn't have the same mass bundling, Halo 5 was released later in the year, AND we don't know the digital numbers of Halo 5.

But hey, Splatoon is still hit but Halo 5 MIGHT be ahead in overall sales.
