I predict Xenoblade Chronicles X will sell NO MORE than 1 Million copes. (Sadly)

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - I predict Xenoblade Chronicles X will sell NO MORE than 1 Million copes. (Sadly)

How much do you think it'll sell?

Over 4 Million 12 4.76%
 
Around 3.5 Million 2 0.79%
 
Around 3 Million 6 2.38%
 
Around 2.5 Million 3 1.19%
 
Around 2 million 30 11.90%
 
Around 1.5 Million 101 40.08%
 
Less than a Million 35 13.89%
 
Around 750,000 38 15.08%
 
Around 500,000 13 5.16%
 
Lower than 500,000 12 4.76%
 
Total:252

If Splatoon can sell 1 mill, then Xenoblade Chron. X will also.

I'm not hating on the game. But people out there barely know what Xenoblade is... most likely the "casual" games out there. I've known this franchise for a few years now. I tried getting into it by watching Youtube gameplays of its past game and I didn't like it. I also watched gameplay videos of XCX itself but I'm still considering on getting it. I've been a huge Nintendo fan since I first picked up the controller and maybe me not picking it up? That tells me it's not going to sell over a million. But this is just my prediction. If it does ITS NOT going to sell over 1.5 Million that's not a prediction, that's a statement. It's just a shame for a hard worked 2-3 year development game not sell well like this, I hope sometime in the future it'll get released on the NX and maybe help with the sales, but I wish the best of luck with the game. I know its a fun great game for the Xeno fans out there!          

I don't think I'd enjoy watching Xenoblade to be honest - it's not a great spectator game! I'm not going to tell you to go against your gut, all I'm going to say is that I don't particularly like JRPGs but I loved the original Xenoblade. It's such an epic experience in every way - it feels like there's so much to see and do that you'll never get to it all. The battle system is a great mixture of strategy and action. I can only presume that X will be similar in these regards and I really think people should think about giving it a go!

Likely. Mainly because I don't expect the word of mouth to be good given the shallow characters/story/quests/combat

What do you mean? The reviews arent too shabby, or do they not count as word of mouth.

im pretty sure we are gonna be swarmed with "i played XBX and its the greatest thing evah"-like threads, so i wouldnt be worried about the word of mouth not being loud enough. Which is great... No more Splatoon threads hurray!

Nah, Splatoon will sell another million soon and T.Bone will be there every step of the way :)

In my definition (maybe I'm wrong), "word of mouth" is the opinion of the final consumer only

plus Nintendo is really advertising the game here.

Serious question: are they? I haven't seen a single ad for the thing, and we're only a week away from release.


I've seen multiple ads on twitch daily starting about four days ago.



Shakarak on Nintendo Switch, Steam.

For a JRPG this day and age over 1 million is a big success.  I believe the best selling JRPG this gen to date it Final Fantasy Type-0 with 680k in sales on PS4.



Hundred+ Fetch quests apparently. So why such a big world?

For PS4 maybe, but if you mean the whole 8th generation then it's POKEMON X/Y (14.5 million).
