93,000 isn't bad.  Especially if you consider its a Niche Title on a system with a Small Userbase in 1 Region.

I've heard it reported that 93,000 was reached on two days of sale. Is this game selling 93,000 a day or 46,500 a day? One is good and one is bad and I can't decide which is which without the correct information.

46,500/day. The tracking period is Monday -> Sunday and Pikmin released on Saturday.
