I expect this will sell pretty well but I don't think it'll sell as well as Xenoverse.

Why not? It's potential is much greater. While Xenoverse will attract mostly Dragon Ball fans, FighterZ has that audience and adds fighting game people. It also had huge coverage for a Dragon Ball game and very good reviews.

If it ever gets released on Switch then I say it's guaranteed to surpass Xenoverse.

I think FighterZ will surpass the Xenoverse games individually. I read that the Xenoverse series is expected to hit 10 million at some point. FighterZ should hit some great numbers though, it already has the record for the most players online at one point for a fighting game on Steam. That’s a pretty great achievement, especially when the gap is more than 2x the previously most played.

Also, Xenoverse 2 only came in at #7 in the UK charts upon its release, so FighterZ has done a much better in the UK.

Well Xenoverse is the best selling Dragon Ball game ever, so that's going to be hard to top anyway. I just think that with all the extra characters and the strong focus on the multiplayer part of the game and the ability to make your own character and customise it however you want and that they kept updating the game with more things over the time that that probably had a greater appeal to more people even if its not as good of a game.

Xenoverse shipped 4 million copies by the day that Xenoverse 2 released. Xenoverse 2 is at a bare minimum of 2 million. I would guess about 4.5-5 million for Xenoverse and 3-3.5 million for Xenoverse 2, something like that.

FighterZ already sold two million copies. I'm even more confident it will become the best selling Dragon Ball game of all time.

That is impressive. In comparison Xenoverse took a month to ship 1.5 million copies and Xenoverse 2 shipped 1.4 million copies on launch.

Fantastic find, I imagine that's​a reputable source right? Especially if it's based on that image but where does the image come from? A magazine?

5 million for a DBZ game that's incredible.

FighterZ can still sell a lot more copies, and if it gets released on Switch I think it will sell better than XV2 there. This has so much potential to become the best selling Dragon Ball game ever.

I'm not exactly sure, but the image is official as far as I'm aware searching around the internet. I think it's fair to say DBFZ will easily be the best selling DB game - will it sell over 6 million copies and become the 5th best selling fighting game ever is the real question.

5 million is amazing in general.

Goku didn't die in GT. The show sucked him off so much, it was impossible to keep him in the world of the living, so he ascended beyond mortality.

Despite the sales being lower in comparison to the first installment, what makes Xenoverse 2 sales even more amazing than anything else is when you remember that in Japan the game is exclusive to PlayStation 4 and for the rest of the world, it is only available for PlayStation 4, X-Box One and PC. So yeah, it sold way more than the half of its predecessor even with its consoles limitations. Certainly it would sell even more than the first game if it was available for PlayStation 3 and X-Box 360 in Japan and in the rest of the world.

So FighterZ sold 68,000 copies on PS4 Week 1.

Xenoverse sold 44,000 copies on PS3 and 34,000 copies on PS4 for 79,000 copies total Week 1.

Xenoverse 2 sold 66,000 copies on PS4 Week 1.

Not bad then I suppose, selling on par with the previous game though there were a lot fewer PS4's sold when Xenoverse 2 came out so does that have the better attachment rate.

In Japan, FighterZ has gone off the charts but Xenoverse 2 still remains on it even though it came out long beforehand.

Probably because Xenoverse 2 had the recent content release. Besides sales, I recently got the game in one(still haven't installed it thou). Lastly the long support the game has had shows itself.

Now onto actual numbers of sales on steam. From steamspy:
FighterZ - 310.813 sales
Xenoverse 2 - 440.850 sales
Xenoverse - 706.278 sales

FighterZ was a success on steam and I expect this number to decently increase once the game starts getting some decent discounts. It will probably surpass Xenoverse 2 in this platform, not sure about the first Xenoverse.

From some of the documents above talking about their fiscal year, FighterZ is at 2.5 million copies sold. No numbers for Xenoverse 2 but it's still going strong.

Even though there was a thread made for it already I need to leave a link to it here as a reminder.

Xenoverse and Xenoverse 2 have sold 10 million combined.

https://www.dsogaming.com/news/dragon-b ... platforms/

From the latest individual sales posted Xenoverse had sold 5 million and Xenoverse 2 had sold 3.3 million so probably now the two have roughly sold the same.
