Xenoblade Was The Third Best-Selling Game In US During April Say Analysts

A new report provided by analyst firm PiperJaffray states that Xenoblade Chronicles was the third best-selling game in the United States during April. EA and Bioware’s Mass Effect 3 was the number one selling game which was followed by Activision’s Prototype 2 and Nintendo published Xenoblade Chronicles.

      1. Depends. If money is no issue, get it fixed. If money is an issue, I’d wait for Wii U (even though it will be another 5-6 months [most probable]).

    1. But that makes the victory even sweeter. The fact that Prototype 2 and Mass Effect 3 were multiplatform and were sold by all retailers, as well as being very hyped up, shows that if Xenoblade was in the same position as those two, it may have been the best selling game in April.

  3. This is great news! Not only do thousands of people have an oppotunity to play an amazing game, but it will encourage more developers to make RPGs and other core games for Nintendo consoles.

    1. Hype? You mean all the hype from us Nintendo News Fans? (Because there sure as hell wasn’t as much advertising hype as there was for the other two games…

      If Xenochronicles actually recieved “Hype,” it would have been #2 or #1.

      1. That’s what meant. If it hadn’t been for operation rainfall the game would have sold like crap. I wouldn’t have bought it or even known about it if the hype hadn’t been there.

    1. wow you put in a lot. Am like 28 hours so an no where near the end at all. I love how it can be difficult at times unlike Zelda which was VERY EASY!!!! Don’t get me wrong I LOVE ZELDA but it was a little easy for me.

      I would jizz in my pants if a sequel is announced for the wii u. My wife would have leave me cause I would definitely get it and play the hell out of it on hd.

      Get N or get OUT!!!!!!

    1. If you wan’t an RPG that is as fun as watching a good Anime, if you enjoy games with vast exploration instead of a linear plot, if you like MORPGs (It feels like one to me)- Then you will like it.

      WARNING: It is a DUEL LAYER DISC – My Wii has trouble playing it some days. If you have any trouble with your Wii, AT ALL, It may not work, then you’ll have to fix your Wii ($75) or wait for WiiU

  6. Good shit. Hopefully Nintendo of America stops being completely f’in absurd about bringin JRPGs to the states now. I’ve been wanting to slap Nintendo of America for this very reason for god knows how many years now.

  8. 90 Hours in, and it’s still not stale. My Wii hasn’t had this much playtime in a long time.

  9. How is that possible? Xenoblade could’ve gotten lower sales due to being available only in Gamespot in the U.S. rather than other retailer stores, and the fact that the two best-selling games of April are from EA and Activision, the two most hated VG companies, shows that JRPGs still have a long way to go to gain their popularity like in the 90s w/ FFVII.

  10. The game deserves these great sales. I’m so happy it’s doing well. I’ve really enjoyed the direction JRPG’s are going on Nintendo platforms.
