Forums - Sales Discussion - Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild rises to #1 selling game this year

Why y'all mad? Cause Zeruda's p*ssy pops severely and Whore-i-Zone's doesn't?

Pretty great sales. Playerunknown's Battlegrounds on pc is close to 5 million sales. The game is still in early access...

Great numbers, but I'm pretty sure Zelda has a much lower digital attach ratio than Horizon. I can't see a lot of people buying digital for such a large game when Switch has such a small amount of internal memory.

Probably true, but what do we talk about? 10% vs. 20%?

 Somebody else on here pointed out that Horizon's digital attach ratio is ~26%, based off Sony's last sales announcement for the game. Considering that at one point BotW retail had a more than 100% attach ratio with the Switch itself, it's safe to say it's significantly less than that. I'd honestly argue it's 5% at best.

These are bold assumptions, but if we go with that than it needs a few weeks more. As VGC is behind, probably even including digital Zelda Switch is over Horizon. Naturally it is at the time VGC is, if we look at WiiU too. Either way, both games sell pretty great.

Predictions: Switch / Switch vs. XB1 in the US / Three Houses first quarter

Very impressive, still was surprising that it initially sold more than all Switch sales too

It's always good when the best seller is a really good game and not the same, n-th trite rehash of a FPS or sports franchise. Gratz Ninty, and show doubtful devs and publishers the good way!

You might want to wait until year's end to celebrate FIFA or CoD not being #1, because they're still very likely going to be.

Yes, I know, just enjoying the moment and daydreaming.

To bring up the Wii U version of Zelda for a moment, Nintendo's figures placed it at over 1 million as of the end of March (shipped + digital) so even with that version dropping off more quickly due to the Wii U's demise, it should still contribute close to 1.5 million by now, all told.

Who buys a Switch and no SanDisk Card? I'm sure almost everyone have one.

I don't have one and the 3 people I know with a Switch don't have them either. Yes we bought the game on a physical release and yes one day with enough EShop games I'll probably need one but to say most people would buy one with the console isn't right IMO. 



You don't need to buy additional storage to buy Zelda digitally, either on Switch or Wii U.

It fills less than half the internal memory of either.

That's too weird is creepy.
