Default "Mirage" rerelease sales figures?

Does anybody know what the sales figures are for the "Mirage" rerelease? Did it chart on the Billboard 200?

In short, no. Unfortunately, Billboard decided to separate Mirage into two different titles. The regular album and the deluxe album. They sold 2,128 and 2,269 copies respectively in the US in the first week. Therefore if those sales were combined (really not sure why they weren't) then it would've debuted at around #100. It debuted at #41 on the UK album chart with sales of 1,908 copies but exited the chart the following week. The album also re-entered the German albums chart at #40.

Hope this helps!

Don't double albums count as double sales?
If so, I think the deluxe albums (which are really just for fans) should probably count as 4 times sales.

Only for the purposes of RIAA for Gold and Platinum awards. If we're talking straight up sales then no they all count as one.
