Forums - Sales Discussion - Prediction: Splatoon 1 Million Worldwide by end of May 2015

Congrats to JohnLucas for this Bold prediction.
Even if has flopped hard, thats was a very epic thread. :D
And by way, still a better prediction than who said it didn't pass 1,000,000 lifetime...

Oh my God, how the hell did I miss this epic thread?! It's also funny how his prediction was still more accurate than other predictions ( for example, Splatoon not reaching 1 million LT).

Strong Start For Nintendo's Wii U Shooter Splatoon

 

"Nintendo has announced its quirky team-based shooter Splatoon has sold over one million copies worldwide.

According to official figures provided by the platform holder, more than 230,000 physical and digital copies were sold in Europe, while the Japanese market accounted for 360,000.

476,000 copies were sold in North America, while Australians purchased 20,000 units."

 

Now let's see what VGChartz puts together once they finally catch up the software charts to the current week. We're still in April on these charts I see.
People out here trying to downplay this game with those bogus UK numbers as if UK's the entirety of Europe.
It seems that the UK 20,000 people were pawning off on me was actually in Australia.

I told you that you won't know the full figures until Nintendo releases the digital data.
Digital sales are always a question mark that can only be answered by the companies themselves.
The existence of digital sales actually hampers sales trackers like NPD AND VGChartz.
They're only getting partial pictures.

It won't even bother me if Splatoon didn't make a million in its 1st 4 days.
I believed in the power of this game & knew it had selling power ever since E3 2014.
If it only got 750,000 out of 1,000,000, that's good enough for me.
It'll leave a sour taste in the naysayers' mouths to brag that Splatoon only missed it by a quarter million.

Either way you cut it tbone got it right.

For what it's worth the VG Chartz numbers are in. First Week sales for Splatoon is....

408K!

It never sold half of what you predicted. No please go ahead and spin it so somehow those numbers are actually in line with your prediction. I can't wait to hear how being off by over 50% somehow makes you far more right than anyone could ever know.

If you look through this thread he was actually a lot closer than many, at least in regards to his confidence in the game and longer term sales lol

But yeah... 1 million in two days would be incredible.

Even though this prediction was a fail, it was still better than 90%+ predictions before launch involving Splatoon. Just need to look up other threads here and on gaf.

And his prediction was based off of first Week, it still hit a million closely after (21-24 days?) while most people thought it wouldn't even hit it lifetime :0

That said JohnLucas was still off... but im sure he's happy with my prediction thread XD (1mil+ in a month, it was 1.62mil)



Around the Network

I'll admit I was one of the people who thought this game would be lucky to hit 1 M in lifetime sales. Wow, was I wrong. Congrats to Nintendo on making a great game.
