Smash outsold spider-man which sold 9 million copies? In one month? I know it’s smash but I find that hard to believe.

Sorry sir but I think "in December" belongs in the quotes too
I see no reason to seperate it from the rest of the quote

One thing to note for that: All digital sales aren't counted for Nintendo, making this way more impressive. For everything else, digital sales are included. (except for some on PC using their own store like Activision)

9 million was the worldwide number, this is USA.

Smash doing is doing way better than I thought it would to be honest.
A bit of a pessimist...but I can be reasonable at times.

HAHAHA! It is indeed shocking considering Spider-Man had a 2 month headstart and literally became FREE in a bundle with an already discounted PS4 so essentially a new AAA game that dropped to bargain bin prices versus a game that’s not even one month old and sold at full $60 regular price. That makes it all the more impressive

What? The Switch hasn't sold 125 million yet???
Remember, PS4 isn't an adult console that can be potentially enjoyed by children. It's a children's console that can be potentially enjoyed by adults.
