        I was right about it being below 10k in the end.

        Seems like Xenoblade 3 had a somewhat low sellthrough rate.

        The next two to three weeks will be crucial to see what kind of legs it'll have.

          Falcom games would probably keep selling better on PS when/if they start doing PS4/Switch launches. Faclom's done very little to foster a Switch fanbase in Japan. Though this isn't accounting for when they inevitably have to let the PS4 go, because they will certainly not be selling better on PS5.

                to be fair the more overarching problem is that they thought Playstation was going to be a self-sustaining default platform forever and that they could just get fat off of Fortnite/CoD/FIFA MTX residuals without needing to lift a finger ever again after kicking Microsoft's shit in at E3 2013. They thought Xbox would die and Nintendo would be an irrelevant second-fiddle (hell they just said they still think that), which shows that they've been willfully ignorant of the non-Sony side of the gaming market for years. 2017 saw Nintendo become a head-turning industry player again and Xbox make moves to begin a massive big-picture pivot with GamePass. The public saw this, there was no good excuse for Sony not to.

          Those three platforms combined have equivalent sales to the switch. Assuming they all sold equally, that’s 30,000 per platform compared to 3000 on the highest selling current gen system. I like their games but that’s a bomb.

        All this suggests is that if Leifthrasir had released on the Switch it would have sold way more than it did on Playstation. Because that's what GrimGrimoire did.

            GrimGrimoire was always a significantly smaller game than Odin Sphere. This goes back to the originals, and the relative ratio just appears to have stayed somewhat true for the remakes.

If someone wants to pay 60 bucks for that, I think they're wasting their money, but they know what they're paying for. Someone must like these Mario sports games or they wouldn't sell and Nintendo would stop making them.

      Eh, it's better that it's overshipped and has stock to move over the next few weeks, rather than undershipped and people forced to resort to digital, which was a gigantic fucking problem for the last 10 years of Nintendo JRPGs(e.g. anyone who has functional memories of trying to buy a physical copy of Fire Emblem Awakening that wasn't smart enough to preorder). Especially when Nintendo loves doling out digital incentives.
      The real metric will be how soon Nintendo sees fit to announce total numbers. Xenoblade Chronicles 2 took one month to hit one million. Let's see how fast XC3 can get to that mark.

      Japan's release calendar is going to be dry as hell for the next month and a half, until Splatoon 3 launches, so it's not like XC3 has to sweat over any competition anyway outside of competing for attention from other Switch games.
      Really, the biggest threat to XC3's growth is just waiting for people to wrap up playing Live a Live.

        That only applies if people are actually liking the game spreading good word. I've been playing through it and it's a bit of a slog, the setting isn't as interesting this time and neither are the characters, and, well, there isn't much of the sexiness factor to drawn otakus in. It hinges on people really really liking Xenoblade as a franchise.

          I'm at chapter four now and quite enjoying it. My personal opinion is that 1 has a better intro sequence and 2 having a better ending of first chapter, but at this point of the story I'd say 3 has set up more threads, possibilities and had better dialogue/thematic than both 1 and 2. 2 does come close with the end of chapter 3/start of 4, however.

            I don't know, I'm a bit tired of the 'war-is-hell' 'born-to-die' 'life-is-fuck' theme. It might seem so at first glance we're reshaping the geopolitics of the war but don't expect the game to follow through a lot, the best we get most of the time is a 'villain of the week' kinda hero quest, with the rights death by mecha explosion. I see a lot of people praising the romance but I'm not feeling it since they pretty much just gravitate towards each other, Tales of Arise did it better in my opinion. It's a bit of swallow game trying to look deep.

            I'm actually surprised Nintendo hasn't done a sponsored stream in general. They fucking pioneered the whole idea of promotional playthroughs with the original Xenoblade.

            Then again, the market is weird compared to ten years ago, streamers have whole ass different revenue streams where people will pay them $20 to read their name out loud.

      Goddamn those XC3 sales are underwhelming. They clearly thought it was an evergreen title that would simply sell better the more switches there are but it's clear now that only Xenoblade fans give a shit about the series and they already bought systems long ago. XC3 will probably sell a little bit better than XC2, probably around 2.3M WW lifetime which isn't awful but clearly cements it as a C tier franchise below stuff like Fire Emblem and down there with Pikmin.

        In my opinion, they just had to add more girls like Pyra/Myhtra. That was what everyone was expecting and people were already looking forward to get them in the next Smash without even seeing them. Baffles me that they didn't follow through. Don't know if it wad hubris or arrogance. Call me crazy but I don't see people getting crazy over a Noah or Mio Smash dlc.

            The next Smash game will just be a port of Ultimate for the Switch 2 with balance changes and some new characters. I doubt Nintendo thinks they can top Ultimate in any significant way, especially without Sakurai, and they'd be right. It'll just be MK8 all over again.

                This isn't really true at all. The competitive and casual scenes for Ultimate are still rather healthy. One of the largest tournaments ever hosted is happening this weekend. The massive roster Ult has is preventing the game from getting boring; just last week Meta Knight got second place in a Japanese major (the best region in world by a significant margin). All they would have to do is improve the netcode for the Switch 2 version and it would bring back a lot of people.

            Xenoblade 4 could be several years away, it likely won't be next Monolith Soft's game.

            XB2 is why XB3 isn't selling...

            Then why is XC2 still selling?

            XC1 & XC2 I get but as someone who hasn't played a single XC, do I really need to play XCX?

            No.

            [...]
            It was supposed to be LE POZZED and flop... What went so wrong?

            Are they actually angry over this game

            Turns out 5 years ago Monolith Soft started development on a game in favor of the Roe v. Wade overturn or something according some ResetEra posters.

            They never learn, pokemon is gonna outsell tlou2 100:1 just like AC did and no amount of "MUH GAWPHICS" will change that

            Not really. I would recommend it on it's own merits, but likewise it barely qualifies as a Spin Off of the main Xenoblade Trilogy. In a similar example, is more Megaman Legends than Megaman X in relation to the main series, if that makes any sense.. Without spoilers, XC2 kind of explains X's place in the canon with a quick "There is an infinite multiverse out there, with worlds that can be completely different to ours, but also have some common elements due to this giant lore event..." which basically, other than the big lore reveal, is also Monoliths way to said "Don't think to much about the Noppons in X"

      Like I said in the first thread yesterday, Xeno 2 launched at 97k, had the first shipment of 160k and ended up selling 300k physical only in Japan by the end of 2021. It was also out of stock for a long time before Nintendo shipped more, driving the digital rate higher.
      Nintendo made a bigger initial shipment knowing there's more interest in Xeno 3.

      I was right about it being below 10k in the end.

      [...]
      The next two to three weeks will be crucial to see what kind of legs it'll have.

      Well, it depends. Xeno 2 didn't show it's going to sell additional 200k in its first 3 weeks.

        No see, XCDE in 2 weeks had a better turnover than XC2, but in the third week plummeted, so it was more frontloaded but had no legs, and as it's cheaper than XC2 it doesn't get a lot of help from vouchers even though it had a very high digital split(almost 60%), it gets a boost when it goes on sale but doesn't chart anywhere near as often as XC2.

              And they don't even milk them like Konami or Capcom, because old Digimon games remakes would basically print them free money.
              They don't even do collaborations. That only happened once, with Lili in Decode, and it was like he was forced to.

If you separate the two then I still think it passes Pokemon Red/Blue/Green/Yellow, but that's 4 games, and also on GBC and GB, two platforms. Next is Wii Fit/Wii Fit Plus, technically 2 games?

            it's strange that it completely contradicts the financial reports. unless it's not revenue but total of games that were bought, because it would make sense for more indies to sell on Q1 and Q2 that are slower months of the year for new big releases

            Everything depended on how popular the new IP was in comparison with the former one to keep them going, thing that didn't happen because Megaton Musashi was a flop and they didn't have enough money for the rest of their IPs to work. That's why they keep delaying their future games.

      I don't think Soul Hackers 2 is a game Atlus is losing any sleep over.

      Goddamn those XC3 sales are underwhelming. They clearly thought it was an evergreen title that would simply sell better the more switches there are but it's clear now that only Xenoblade fans give a shit about the series and they already bought systems long ago. XC3 will probably sell a little bit better than XC2, probably around 2.3M WW lifetime which isn't awful but clearly cements it as a C tier franchise below stuff like Fire Emblem and down there with Pikmin.

      What a weak bait, if it surpasses XC2 then it'll have become an evergreen since XC2 already more or less achieved that status.

          Kirby isn't a common large seller. Most of kirby games sold 1m-3m. the 5M (the biggest) was from 1992. Its actually close to xenoblade but less mass appeal obviously

    XB3 and SMTV both have the slightly dubious issue of being the best selling games in their respective franchise's history, but it wasn't the explosive growth some other series have been blessed with by coming out on the Switch, so you do wonder if the devs aren't somewhat disappointed.

          Sounds more like the only people who buy or even care about Xenoblade are dedicated Xenoblade fans in general. That group will buy every single one no matter what it's on and the rest of the numbers are the small portion of non fans who just happened to buy it.
          Xenoblade will never grow or expand beyond it's current sales, it's way too niche and all the nonsense mmo and waifu shit is simply an impassable barrier for 99% of regular people. The series has it's niche but it will never ever ever be a big open world tentpole or even reach the moderate success of stuff like Persona and Fire Emblem.

    You xenotards are failing to account for budget. Xenoblade is a massive fucking open world game that requires hundreds of people to work on for several years. The fact that it only sells as much as some 2D games that get by with a fraction of the staff and budget is an embarrassment.

      >requires hundreds of people
      retard, XC2 was developed by a skeletron crew of less than 50 people because they were all working on BotW
      >Takahashi shares with Hashino. “Of that group, between 50% to 60% was helping Nintendo with Zelda (Breath of the Wild). Of the remaining 40 to 50 people, several were part of R&D (Research & Development), and the Xenoblade Chronicles 2 staff was made of the remaining 40-plus members.

      even though they hired a fuckton of people since then, XC3 also probably only had a small team working on it since the bulk of the studio is probably working on BotW 2 which is most likely a massive trainwreck that they're still trying to salvage to this day

                Not to crazy. Exclusives are the reason the system sells, when they fail to get big numbers when the system had million units around something's up. I can't remember a system with more exclusive games completely ignored than ps2.

              This numer doesn't include the Special Edition which XC2, included and it's a good chance it sold ~80k, effectively meaning XC3 doubled XC2's sales.
              >No. but a game launching at 10m install base is not going to have as much audience and capability to sell
              That's why XC2 was selling over a long period of time as the installbase grew to 110M users

Some of them get a hundred million more over breakeven due to inflation. Do you think shareholders think its good? When they could have gotten 200m-300m more like they used to do.

                TLOU2 is a disappointment by the way too. same as Horizon 2

                Xenoblade 2 had 90k sales but it was a niche series and progressively got more popular that made massive hype for XB3. XB3 also had bigger budget.

                It's amazing that apparently Ganker is frequented by industry insiders that not only know the intricate details of Nintendo's budgeting for their games but also have insight into their feelings concerning those games as well.

                I'm not an industry insider. and I never said i was. I do work in a relevant subject though.
                Nintendo does have better data. especially digital. Digital can be a make or break it for this game

                Well here's a thought; the audience for these games has remained largely flat, with slight growth with each subsequent release. If Nintendo were unhappy with the sales the series produces, it's likely that they wouldn't continue greenlighting these projects, since this is the third Xenoblade game released for the Switch.

                Yeah that's about what I'm getting at. The growth didn't correlate to its hype or the word of mouth-marketing it had prior to launch. Which is why its disappointing.

                And how precisely are we quantifying "hype" and "word of mouth marketing"? From where I'm sitting the marketing for Xenoblade 3 has been pretty much identical to what Xenoblade 2 got.

                The fact Nintendo was happy with Astral Chain and MUA3 crossing 1 million each and calling them successes shows that they have a much lower treshold than most others, which is mostly because they know how to budget their projects to a near absurd degree

                and you're also completely missing the point of series like Xenoblade existing, Nintendo "isn't a family owned restaurant", but anyone who has a basic understanding of economics would know how important is to offer a variety of products even if they're not best sellers

                if it was as easy as saying "just focus on your flagships bro", Nintendo would force every single one of their studios including Monolith to develop Mario games exclusively and we would have 10 different Mario platformers and god knows how many Mario party/sports games at this stage of Switch's life because that's what sell

            Yes it is true. but remaining relatively flat or a minor increase is not a good result. We don't know how Metroid prime will do. and Metroid game did sell very well, much better than most metroid games in fact

            No game will sell 1:1 with installbase unless it was packed with it like Wii sports nearly did
