It's hilarious that only Zero went over. Incubi was very close.

Why is it hilarious?

I find it funny that everyone was so wrong. In particular that 99% were wrong due to negativity. Far too often people use the recent past to predict the future. Thoughts should focus on the present.

2014 - 3m

Lifetime - 8m

The prediction lowest of all. XD

I'm pretty sure MegaManX and Metallox take the cake for lowest FW and lowest LT respectively. 



Carl is a Piplup hater and deserves to be punished eternally.

Now we should do updates for the sold lifetime and 2014!
I predict 6,000,000 in 2014!



I was close enough.

I must have thought MK8 was only launching in one major territory first week. Yeah I really lowballed it. 



Sigs are dumb. And so are you!

I see. and I find it funny that my prediction, wich many would call outrageous a few weeks ago, was basically 3rd place.

Edit: actually, if we consider the first seven days, my prediction was the closest and should still be bellow the actual number.

What's the point of mentioning the US first week of MK7. the 1.3 million you mentioned was the relevant number. Over one million was pretty much a given, with the many (a lot) bellow 1 million predictions were the odd ones.

The 684k sold are the official FW numbers, since that's what it sold when it was released. 

No. The 1.3 million is the oficial first week in terms of relevancy to this subject.



I don't know if I was bored or something to think the game would only sell 375K units. Perhaps I thought these were Japan sales only, or back then the free game deal or the Wii U bundle weren't announced. Either way, I was so far that my prediction looks like trolling xD

I still find possible seeing the game selling that quantity. Or perhaps not... I don't know, 5-6 million is my guess.
