I shall go with Bayonetta 2 for flopping.



Around the Network

It's Bayonetta 2 because the second game will always be compared to the first and it's going to get nowhere near. It will be lucky if it moves 1/3 as many copies. If Sega didn't want to greenlight the sequel when the first sold 1M, then there is no way Bayonetta 2 is going to turn a profit.

The thing is, Nintendo desperately needs the game to perform well in order to show third-parties. You can bet publishers will be watching with a high degree of interest. Nintendo needs to spend some cash on advertising--however, I have a hunch they won't.

Hyrule Warriors might not do well. Honestly, the people who like those games will have a PS3 and all the Warriors games they can handle. It might have modest enough expectations that keep it from being a failure, though, and as an experiment, it might even be a success.

As true flops go, I'm going to say The Crew. I think it's going to fail to find an audience.



I'll go with Bayonetta 2 here.



Predicting that Second Son (PS4) will outsell Titanfall (XOne) in lifetime sales.  Click here for sales comparison thread.

Biggest flop, especially considering the budget? That's easy, and noone even said it cause everyone forgot about the game. The Elder Scrolls Online.

Other than that, my guesses: The Crew, Mad Max, Wolfenstein New Order (depending if they launch during a drought or not)



So it is happening...PS4 preorder.

Greatness Awaits!

I'm going to say Bayonetta 2... at least it won't matter as much to Platinum since Nintendo funded it, right?

I think Watchdogs has a chance. The expectations for it are huge, both from players and investors, so anything but a rock solid performance would be unacceptable.

Oh yeah. I keep forgetting about Elder Scroll Online. Oh boy. Apparently the game cost them 200M to make.

Bomberific.



Wii Fit U is already a flop, now Nintendo just needs to add Bayonetta to that list.

Check!
