Obviously, don't read the thread if you don't want spoilers on sales information and such, because that's the whole point of this thread.
So the game sold fairly well, with quite a few people getting the special edition. Also, it seems that the Hoshido route (Birthright) was more popular in Japan, presumably because the game is easier and closer in content and style to Awakening. I'm guessing they will take this as a sign that they should continue along the Hoshido side of things and NOT the Nohr side of things, which is bad news for anyone who preferred the approach that Nohr route took or whatever (cough me, based on what I've seen).
Anyone have any thoughts/insight on this? Did it meet your expectations, does it sound about right, did you expect Hoshido to sell better? That kinda thing. XP
