Restricted by the PS4's currently small userbase of only a million, Bloodborne and Disgaea 5 are probably not going to live up to the sales of their forefathers Dark Souls and Disgaea 4, respectively. Dark Souls sold 280,000 copies in its opening week, and Dark Souls 2 shifted 255,000. Disgaea 4 sold 80,000 in its debut. I expect Bloodborne and Disgaea 5 to sell "well" when compared to the average PS4 game, but I'll be very surprised if those figures turn up.
