To put things into perspective, the Xbox One version of Titanfall was able to OutSELL Dark Souls II both on the 360 and PS3 combined. That's quite an impressive feat when you consider that Titanfall was a brand new IP released on a console with less 4 million Xbox Ones sold while both the PS3 and 360 each have a 80+ million install user base.

Not to diminish titanfall's sales numbers, but a FPS outselling dark souls is not that difficult.

Generally, FPS > RPG in terms of sales.

Plus, despite its "popularity" on gamefaqs, the souls games are niche titles with a relatively small following.

A FPS outselling dark souls 2 is just not that big of an accomplishment.

That said, titanfall's sales are quite good.

For a new IP with no SP I say it did the best it could,EA is pretty happy and so is Respawn and MS,and as it turned out it is a real fun game,even though it feels like a beta for TF2 I have not had this much fun with a MP game since MW2 so it was worth the wait.
