Forums - Sales Discussion - UPDATE: Prediction: Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified (Vita) will outsell WiiU CoD #2 (Vita wins by over 7:1...)

What am I (on the prediction scale)?

Something less extreme than the above

Let's face it, Black Ops II has sold abysmally on Wii U but why is that? Some people say because it's a "late" port (by ~two weeks). Other people say it's because of the small userbase. Black Ops Vita has already sold 580k, yet it's an abysmal game (~30 score on Metacritic). Most people agree that WiiU should overtake Vita total hardware sales this year. But without further ado, here's what I think: The next WiiU CoD will not outsell this abysmal Vita CoD. This would be despite WiiU's much larger userbase (this holiday vs. Vita's userbase last holiday).

Since I see Declassified ending up with sales just above 700k or so (without more holiday bundles), this means I think WiiU CoD next won't sell more than 700k. Agree/Disagree?

Call of Duty Black Ops: Declassified sales: 0.58m
Call of Duty Black Ops II (WiiU) sales: 0.15m

That's a bold prediction. You honestly believe that the Wii U will get another CoD?

Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Biased reviews are a pleasure to read. Just my opinion, of course.

Disagree.

All the COD's on Wii even sold better than that.

I do. Wii got almost all of them, didn't it? As long as PS3/360 are getting CoDs I see WiiU getting them too (at least when Treyarch makes them)



Why would ANYONE want BO:Declassified to sell well?! It's one of the worst games of all time, so every single person who buys it will be pissed off and will probably resent their Vita for being home to such a dismal game.

OT: I have no idea. Does it really matter anyway?

it most probably will. even if the next xbox and PS release this year there not gonna ignore the 150 million install base of the ps3/360. the next call of duty wont use a new engine, wont be next gen and wont be anything new, just a new couple of perks with some new maps. why would they ignore the WiiU when the first will sell over 200K and easily making back the money it took to port it ?

You're some sort of money zombie. I think both Blops2 and the next COD will outsell Declassified in time.

Black Ops Vita is still really really bad unfortunately... I was quite looking forward to it
