I got PS3 for Jak and Daxter...

I think there will be a lot of Halo fans who have seen no reason to get into next gen yet. So far they've been able to satisfy all of their FPS needs on 360. Look at Destiny sales on 360 vs Xb one (VGC data...I know, I know) 360 is 59% of Xb one. Compare that to the PS3/4 split of just 29%. CoD sales on Last gen hardware are still well over 3 million (both consoles), and again the 360/Xb one split is very close, 84%, which is a much higher ratio than PS3/4. I think it's quite possible for Halo to shift (globally worldwide) 1 million extra Xb one's this year, IF it can hit 5 million+ before the end of the year.

I'm assuming Halo will move consoles, and Microsoft will see healthy sales, I'm just curious how healthy they'll be.  I'm just happy Sony got a better start than last gen, heck, I'd be ok if all 3 were neck and neck in sales.

I was expecting the 8th gen to be pretty even. But when you think about it the 7th gen ended up being very even. All the consoles are going to end up with market share in the 30% range. That was with Sony doing very badly out of the gate, and with Nintendo having amazing sales in its early years. If MS and Nintendo hadn't made bad decisions we might well have had a second very even generation.

Again that's easy to say when you didn't make a prediction.

I for example could also go ahead and call all the Metacritic predictions in your sig unrealistic, but I'm not gonna do that because I haven't put myself out there to make predictions for those games (aside from Halo 5 I think).

To come out after the results are here and say that all predictions were unrealistic and bullshit is taking the real easy route.

Again if they didn't lower their predictions and be realistic there wont be any callouts, I seen people call out others predictions even though they never made a prediction themselves hell there were even users who rarely comment call people out.

I really hope you actually click the link to my predictions because my Ori prediction was one point away from being spot on so calling my predictions(Ori included which came one point close to my prediction) unrealistic isnt really a great idea. Being a few points off isn't really something worth calling out for.

I'm not going through the whole thread to call out everyone seperately, you were the last one I saw doing this but you can consider this as something aimed at everyone that now AFTER the results are out feels in the position to call people out for their predictions when they themselves didn't predict anything. You can act all smug and say that you would have made a better prediction, but fact is you didn't so you don't get to call people out after the results are out, the situation would be different if you started calling out before the results were known (which makes me realize that I could in fact call out your meta predictions but whatever) but if as soon as we know the result you act as if you'd have done better then you should really just stop.

Make a prediction next month and if you're right you can call out people all you want.

And you really shouldn't get too full of yourself for getting the Ori score correct, doesn't mean you couldn't be completely off the mark with another game, has happened before plenty enough.

I think you aren't really understanding I WASNT calling out everyone only those "specific people"(I'm not going to talk about who are these people but it should be obvious).

Also there are people who are making similar predictions as me: http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/thread.php?id=206183&page=1                      Why don't you tell them that they are making unrealistic predictions for those games?

How did you get 1.9m for Batman? O.o

As far as I know it's closer to 1.25m.

1.1 million is for PS4 only i thing, and is around 62%. ( withouth bundle )

If we added another nearly 700k for XBO, and the 120k from the bundle, is not at 1.9 million?

Idk, if is not at 1.9 million i seriusly don't know oh can be the numbers, but is a fact that is OVER 1.5 million ( Arkham City )

Maybe is better write >1.5 million in the OP.

Nah 1.1m is for both. Apparently that 1.5m for Arkham City is wrong. NPD overtracked it back then and has since been adjusted downward.

Ouch. That's a huge margin of error. 0_ O

in that case ignore this...
