splatoon2_accesories-1-1000x562

Splatoon 2 Pre-Orders in Japan have sky rocketed through the rough. With 800K stand alone copies of the game being pre-ordered there. This is not counting worldwide sales, or even the Switch and Spaltoon 2 Bundles in Japan. It seems that Nintendo has a huge title on their hands that has generated a lot of positive buzz. You can find the figures on COMG to see how it compares sales wise.

Nintendo comments on Switch Shortages

Nintendo-Switch-Airport

As we all know the Nintendo Switch is a massive success, outselling the Wii by more than ten percent in the U.S., and selling out upon launch with nearly 3 million units. Now it has been hard to find a Switch as of late, and some people are upset by this. Nintendo made a statement “For autumn and beyond, we will continue to work to ensure that as many products as possible can be delivered to our customers towards the end of the year.” So production will increase, especially by the Holiday season in time for Super Mario Odyssey, Nintendo’s juggernaut.

ARMS is the big new fighting game IP from Nintendo for their new platform the Switch. It is a massive hit in Japan selling 100,652 beating out every game on the market in Japan. Funny enough Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and Breath of the Wild are number 2 and 3 on that list. ARMS has outperformed Tekken 7 despite the larger install base on the PS4 in Japan. Tekken 7 has sold 76,603, while ARMS sold over 100k in 2 days. Nintendo Switch has been a huge hit in Japan and in the world, and now their new IP ARMS is beating out well established fighting game series in Japan.

SOMA Dev Reveals Sales Statistics and New Accolade Trailer

SOMFace

Frictional Games’ sci-fi horror game SOMA, released just 10 days ago to universal acclaim. The developer saw it fitting to release a brand new trailer celebrating the game’s praise and highlighting some of the terrors that await those who yet to take the plunge. A new blog post reveals many details about the game, including just how well it fared commercially.

After its first week SOMA has sold 92,000 copies across all platforms, compared to one of Frictional’s previous titles Amnesia: The Dark Descent, which sold 30,000 in the first month (around 20,000 the first week).

“The money that we’ve got from this will pretty much pay our company expenses for another 2 years. Sales are still going pretty strongly too, with a total of around 2,000 copies sold per day.”

The studio’s goal for SOMA was for it to reach 100,000 units sold after the first month. It seems they’ll have no trouble achieving it but they’re still far from recouping all of their expenses.

“We need to sell almost 3 times that amount to do that. But given that it took us 5 years to make the project, there’s no immediate stress to do so. One of the great things about funding SOMA 100% ourselves is that all money earned goes into our own pockets and is directly used to fund our upcoming projects. So we are under no pressure to recoup immediately so long as we get enough to keep going – which we certainly have now.”

Check out the accolade trailer below and You can read the blog to learn even more.

 

SOMA is out now for PC and PS4.

#OperationPlatinum Was A Failure, Bayonetta 2 Doesn’t Reach 1 Million Sales On Wii U

Bayonetta Failure Wii U Sales

Third Party Games have had a real hard time on Nintendo platforms arguably since the N64 or at least GameCube leading to countless titles moving back to the PlayStation platform including Final Fantasy which started on NES and Resident Evil which was supposed to have a 4th installment exclusive on the GameCube that later came to the PS2 and ultimately many other platforms.

Take a look at this video from BrokenGamezHD who speaks about #OperationPlatinum

#OperationPlatinum was supposed to be a bunch of Wii U owners buying Bayonetta 2 to prove to PlatinumGames and the game industry overall that their platform deserves to get third party games just as much as XO or PS4 despite not having the same specs on par with these systems and allegedly not having the same hardcore purchasing fan-base that PlayStation and Xbox third party games benefit from.

The operation aimed to get 1 million sales. Bayonetta is out, users love it and reviewers love it, but 1 million sales were not made. This reinforces the belief that both Bayonetta as an IP and third party games in general are not able to move units well on the Wii U. Long term sales remain to be seen, but this industry mainly revolves around launch week sales numbers.

Take a look at the video below, consider subscribing, and commenting your own thoughts.

Just How many People Sold their Souls for The Evil Within?

The-Evil-Within-1

Bethesda Softworks’ recent survival horror title, released on the 14th of October, The Evil Within, sold 818,816 retail copies across all platforms within its first week. At the top of the list, was the PlayStation 4 version, selling upwards of 420k units worldwide, according to vgchartz.com.

The-Evil-Within-7

Everyone wants a piece of Bassy.

Coming in second placce, was the Xbox One, with 143,845 units sold. The PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC platforms sold 126,169, 77,840 and 44,573, respectively.

Sales in Europe and North America were almost identical coming in at 304,178 and 305,654.

Note* These sales only represent the physical copies of the game as vgchartz does not track digital sales. With that in mind the overall sales could be a lot closer to 1 million. Seeing as it has been almost a month since release, it has probably surpassed that by now.

If you have yet to pick up The Evil Within and are wondering if it is worth your time, check out our review and see why it scored a Silver Game award.

RGN Data: PS4 Vs Xbox – Who Won Nex Gen ONE Launch?

RGN Analysis

Back in the very early months of 2013, RealGamerNewz started a passive poll system on our front page asking gamers a simple question. Which games and consoles were they looking forward to the most in the coming launch of the next-generation platform for the game industry’s main revenue and development focus – the dedicated console gaming sector. This is the place where most blockbuster titles recognized by the outward world are created. Perhaps this is most evident by the quick uptake and increase in buyers every time a new generation of hardware releases.

We released results many times to this poll, but rather than ending the data there: Here are the current standings of the poll which we’ve left up. This is the last time you’ll have a chance to see this poll’s results on the homepage though, since we will be launching a new one on there soon. The links below the images will take you directly to the poll and allow you to continue accessing it.

Editor’s Note: We have reason to believe this data is completely unbiased because the Poll is an IP poll that only allows 1 vote per person.
