Games tend to sell the most in the two weeks after release, and continue on a gradual decline from there. So it's not exactly a stellar start...

What's surprising here? The better game has more demand.

Even if you're indifferent about DmC, you gotta admit Ni no Kuni was bound to sell better even though it's a much more niche title.

Also, y'know, the game's just better than DmC.

achieved the highest ever sale through rate of any video game ever released in Sweden


Really!? That's... a surprise. I thought Sweden had awful taste, but maybe there's still hope.

Hopefully Crapcom opens its eyes.

Now compare it to a CoD game.


Okay then compare COD to Pokemon game.


Not that I care about this stupid conversation but CoD outsells Pokemon.

Generally games drop down in both price and sales as time moves forward

I imagine overall it will sell 250k-400k in its lifetime.
