Ninja Gaiden Sigma First Day Sales

A severe lack of content has plagued the system for months now, and only now does it look like the software is finally beginning to roll and it kicks off with the launch of Ninja Gaiden Sigma. Released this past Wednesday in Japan, for its first day of sales Ninja Gaiden Sigma managed to sell 20k copies. With another six days remaining, I'd estimate first week sales of 40-45k for the game.

I'm not good with numbers, but it did far better than COD3, which I guess means something good then? I'd expect weekly sales to be pretty decent. The Eternal Sonata game of course did the best though. (Of the 3 mentioned titles.)

Fps are not popular in Japan like in the USA so the numbers are exspected. Although I was hoping the numbers would be higher for Sigma.

Satanas4774d ago

Yeah you're right about that, so I guess that is actually alright for COD then.

Yes! Ninja Gaiden Sigma can even go platinum at this rate. Everybody knows what this means for the PS3. Well, let me tell you. It time to beat the DS weekly sales. K, I know I going to far with this and NGS is no MSG4 but still is a solid experience.

I predict first week NGS sales of 100-150k.

I doubt it.
Many PS2 games only hit 60-75k in the first week.

Also we have to watch for drop off. Some games start off great but then drop off big time the following week.

I say it will hit around 35-45k.

FF could pull those numbers though.
Hot DS games come in over 100k too.
Wii games have hit 150k. Paper Mario got 154k in it's first week.

"I predict first week NGS sales of 100-150k."

That's an extremely optimistic prediction.

I thought the sales would be lower then 67k (which was ninja gaiden original sales). It seems like it might make 100k.

Region free, so if you were to somehow get the import of the Jap version, it would work on an NTSC US/PAL system.
