Remember when we thought we'd have a great holiday battle in 2015?

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Remember when we thought we'd have a great holiday battle in 2015?

Zelda
Halo 5
Uncharted 4

All slated to be released in Holiday 2015 for a sales battle we were all ready for.

It couldn't have gone more wrong as they all ended up releasing in different years

Halo 5 made it to 2015
Uncharted 4 2016
Zelda 2017

What hopeful battles do you think we'll actually get in future?



PS4 and PC gaming

 

PC Specs:
AMD Ryzen 9 3900x
Zotac Nvidia RTX 2070 Super
32GB DDR4 Corsair Vengence Ram 3200 mhz
1TB Samsung Qvo SSD
Corsair Spec-Delta Case
Asus ROG B450-F Motherboard

Pokemon vs GTA



Haha yeah, not that it really mattered. Sony still won the holidays and UC4 looks like it will go on to sell the most of the 3.
MS just desperately needed a system seller at the time, too bad Halo isn't what it used to be.
As for Zelda, they made the right choice. It wouldn't have helped WiiU sell much better but now it can really push new hardware sales early on n the Switch's life.



Mass effect Andromeda vs Horizon Zero Dawn on PS4 is hoing to be intresting.



Please excuse my (probally) poor grammar

Dragon Quest XI vs Ni No Kuni 2 vs Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age

Isn`t DQ massacring those two a pretty safe bet though?



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

In Japan, most certainly. 

In the west tho, I wouldn't be so sure. FF always sells well and the first Ni No Kuni was very well received 
Its ma battle for me at least. :P

Well I hate to disappoint you there but UC4 has only sold 5.4 million units and it's not going to sell much more beyond this. Sony's games really don't have long legs like that, even Naughty Dog titles.

Zelda will easily eclipse this number even with UC4's massive head start, simply because it is already presented as the Zelda fans have been wanting for years!

FF12 is only a remaster rather than a new release though. Looking at VGC the FF10 remaster on PS2 sold about 1.3m and it seems like that was a more popular game than 12, so I expect it to sell around 1m, give or take a few hundred k. Ni no kuni seems like it was highly praised on internet forums and such but is still pretty niche. So the sequel isn`t likely to be a huge seller. Looking at past DQ sales numbers... worldwide it isn`t even going to be close. Could easily sell more than the other two combined. I suppose if you`re looking at western sales only though then it could be a pretty interesting battle.

The fact that I had to wait 2 extra years for Zelda is precisely why I won't buy it. Back then the Wii U still had crazy droughts, so I would have bought it then. But 2 years later and since then I've gotten a PS4 and played better games at cheaper prices (uncharted trilogy, GTA, overwatch). I'm not getting a console to play Zelda, and I'm probably not getting it on the Wii U (if it still gets ported), since I'm sure it'll suffer performance issues.

Im pretty sure uncharted 4 will still have strong legs going on and the PS4 is still going to dominate this gen leading to more uncharted 4 sales
