As I expected 80k for Xenoblade Chronicles X. It could be a 1m seller by end of the year. Depending on the legs it has worldwide.

It's got my money.
I'm hoping many others will buy a cheap used or refurbished Wii U for it, too.
It's definitely one of those kinds of games you use as your "first game with more to come" purchase, and it deserves high sales from more than just Nintendo fans.
IMO, it deserves attention from JRPG lovers in general, regardless of console loyalties.

But I digress: It's only about 3k behind Dragon Quest in physical.
And Dragon Quest is a much more well kown and popular IP, whereas Xenoblade X is basically a whole new game that isn't near as popular.
And neither Xeno nor DQ are casual games, like P&D, meaning they're a harder sell.

Being that close despite the difference in popularity bodes well for Xenoblade, and we don't yet have confirmed digital numbers.
With it being the #1 game on the Eshop practically since release, it's the digital sales I wanna see most.
