I am relieved that the game sold quite decently.  It was in line with the 35K-40K I was expecting avoiding a disaster if it sold only >20K that many Wii U haters were predicting.  It should creep to a decent 100K units sold by the end of the year having almost similar sales to HW (60K) and expected sales boost from Wii U version of Smash.  The Wii U really needs a home console version of MH4 and Pokemon RPG to really maintain momentum after the Smash release.  I don't see any software maintaining it's hardware sales after Smash Bros.  PS4 and Destiny had a good hold and X1 is literally DOA in Japan with sales  <1.5K units.  On the portable side the 3DS is beasting over the PSV which is all but dead anywhere outside Japan!!



BTW I expect Bayo2 to sell 2-3x as much in the NA territories and 1.5x-2x in EU territories compared to Japan!!!

I agree that it is wayyyy better start compared to W101 (still hoping that they make a sequel with this new Nintendo IP) and the game has a sure shot of hitting 100K units in Japan alone before the end of the year.  I expect it to sell somewhere in the 100K units in the USA in it's first week with NPD giving it a monthly sale of around 140K-150K for the month.  I am hoping that with Operation Platinum that it sells another 200K-300K until the end of the holidays.  In the EU I expect 85K-90K units the first week and selling another 100K for the rest of the year.  In total I expect it to reach at least 550K after the holidays and legging out to 1Mil by the end of the Wii U lifetime.

Ouch at bayo 2 numbers being half of bayo 1's on the 360, despite the wii u having a larger install base... WHy has japan stopped buying great games?

At least its better than what they did to the wonderful 101.

Bayo2 's sales may not be stellar, but solid enough to sell through 67% of it's intial shipment of 56K units.  http://www.siliconer...-its-shipment/  . Surely, it must be witihin Nintendo's expectations already for Japan. As for the X360 sales, it had a 5 days to sell vs 2 days for the Wii U. The game should sell through it's initial shipment by next MC numbers if not more (I expect it to sell 15-17K units on it's second week bringing a total to 54K-56K not counting digital sales).  I also think the game sold decently with digital if it is selling for a lower cost than retail couterpart due to the omission of the 1st Bayonetta.  The real test if this game is a flop or not is not Japan but the West.  If it fails to sell at least 100K units(a travesty) for October NPD it would mean Nintendo/Platinum has a stinker (in sales) on it's hands!!! Again, I predict the game should sold at least 100K by the end of the year in Japan, ~250-300K for NPD's end of the year numbers, and 150K in European territores by the conclusion of the holidays.  So 3Dude what do you predict the numbers are going to be for all regions?
