To compare, here's a snip from Perfectly-Nintendo about Sun and Moon:Translation said:
Source: http://www.perfectly-nintendo.com/nintendo-sales-data-france-pokemon-sun-moon-3ds-nes-mini/Perfectly-Nintendo said:Philippe Lavoué (from Nintendo France) frequently shares some sales data for Nintendo consoles and games in France, and he did so again last week. Naturally, he shared some sales data for Pokémon Sun and Moon, which is off to a fantastic start in the country.
During the first week, Pokémon Sun and Moon sold over 425 000 units in France: that’s by far the best launch ever for a Nintendo game. As comparison, here’s how the game sold in two other European countries:
And as of writing, the game has most definitely reached 500 000 units sold already. Nintendo expects sales to top 700 000 units by the end of the year, and 1 million units sometime in 2017.
- United Kingdom: 368 000 units
- Germany: 347 000 units
To give you a clear picture of how strong Pokémon Sun and Moon sales have been, here’s how the previous two Pokémon titles sold at launch:
- Pokémon X and Y: 125 000 units
- Pokémon Omega Ruby / Alpha Sapphire: 180 000 units
I asked the poster of the tweet I quoted how that compares to SunMoon shipments, and they told me it was the same amount:This seems like the thread for it:
To compare, here's a snip from Perfectly-Nintendo about Sun and Moon:
These shipment numbers are absolutely massive, in short. They seem to expect huge sales even by Pokémon standards.
Any comparison with other QD titles?
Hello Captain Falcon, how are you? You always make Smash Bros hype as fuck :P
Lower than expected for Detroit.
I am well, thank you! It's my time to finally be the star of the new Smash game. Hopefully they don't nerf me too much as I have plans to kick Fox out of his own game and star in Retros new title as well.
Detroit not doing so great in Spain. So where is Detroit doing so well that it's QD's biggest game ever? So far the numbers we have are underwhelming.
It doubled Beyond in Japan and sold more than even Heavy Rain, so they haven't been all underwhelming.
Too bad the US is one territory where we don't get numbers. It should definitely debut at number 1, right?
I wonder how much the previous games did during launch WW. And what that would put Detroit at. Considering Cage said it was "by far" the biggest one.
The "crowd that buys Pokemon" ...you think that the series only caters to children ? And that these children and/or their families could somewhat afford a 3DS but cant afford a Switch ?
That would be something if God of War topped it (not going to happen). GoW may be able to outsell SoD2 though.
How would I know that information? We know is Detroit was selling faster than any other Quantic Dream game at the time when the statement was made. You seem to be looking for evidence to back your predetermined conclusion. Wait till they put out a press release or the NPD results come. However like I said above Heavy Rain sold 1 million in 1.5 months and early this year the confirm it sold 5.3 million.
I doubt those numbers are the best, Heavy Rain had bigger marketing, collector edition, two big Spanish actors for the dub, bundle with ps3.Beyond: Two Souls didn't even register on the Spain charts during release month. It was a busy month, but still. Heavy Rain came in at #6 for February behind Wii Sports Resort and FIFA 2010. Safe to say these Detroit numbers are likely decent for Spain, maybe even the best for a QD title
No need to get defensive. But we can't compare a month of sales to a week.How would I know that information?

not "was", still is, because it's GaaS game – servers (which cost a lot), post-launch support, etc. For any MP-focused GaaS game release date is just a beginning. See Fortnite for example → https://www.resetera.com/threads/epic-has-350-developers-on-fortnite-shipped-with-25-talks-future-games.34902/
