Prediction, it will not surpass Minecraft.

However, I think it can become the best selling Triple A new IP.

Wii Sports was bundled so not fair.

Super Mario Bros also massively bundled and not the first Mario game.

Well,  the iOS version alone will sell 100 million....... only if it's free to play of course.

You know what i think... when you have to announce it, its because your game doesnt speak for you.

I'm sure it will sell well, but i doubt it will be CoD big. I dont even know if WoW was CoD big and the thing is an MMO as far as i can tell.

Minecraft is at 42 Million and counting guys.

Destiny will do good, but its not gonna get close to Minecraft.
