I would love to hear your reasoning for this; I dont disagree with you,  mind you, but it would be interesting to hear nonetheless. Id argue that the ps/xbox gamers dont really care about those kind of games, but Ive heard counter arguments to that


Even if PS/XB guys were crazy about Nintendo games, they aren't anywhere near 30m-units-on-one-console crazy. Mario Kart Wii had to be exclusively bundled to Nintendo's most successful console for years to do 30m+. Short of a AAA Pokemon JRPG being a bundled exclusive to the PS4 or XBO for several years, that isn't happening with any Nintendo game at all. Period.


What about Wii Sports resort? And NSMB wii almost sold 30m...



I'm on Twitter @DanneSandin!

Furthermore, I think VGChartz should add a "Like"-button.

Unlikely, I would find it massively cool though if a Sony studio could catch lightning in a bottle like that and make a new game that becomes this successful (and yes I'm saying Sony, because I will likely only own a PS4 and I have no problem admitting that I like to see the PS brand do well :P)




not happening. the only platform it could conceivably happen on is ps4, and games dont sell those levels on sony consoles.

Single platform? Never going to happen. You will not even see that many 10m+ sellers this gen let alone 30m.


Yep, I wouldn't expect much more than 10s franchises to do it.

Those were both bundles that wouldn't do even close to as well on the other consoles.



Well, this is new.

GTA at 20M being MP and on 80M userbase says there is a tiny tiny chance.

GTA 6, i guess, is on the poll for a reason. thats the only conceivable chance, but.. just no. SA on ps2 sold, what was it, 18m?

Yep... double base but less sales... so it is more a proof of franchise growth...

But if Sony decided to bundle GT7 with all consoles or anything like that they would achieve it, same with Halo 5... but otherwise I think the chance is quite quite low.

yeah, halo 5 is another contender, but if halo 3 couldnt do it on x360, then there is absolutely no way halo 5 could on x1

On its on legs (discounting all bundle) I don't see Halo, UC or TLOU going much above 10M... GT above 15M also wouldn't happen... but perpetual bundle is a different thing.
