What sells better in pre-orders?

Call of Duty: WWII (PS4) 141 54.65%
Super Mario Odyssey 117 45.35%

It's possible for Mario. Activisions latest quarterly showed that games are hitting 50% digital on consoles alone. Does the switch do digital? ww2 needs to double(or damn near)it's sells to match Mario physically.

Halo MCC will sell 5+ million copies(including digital)

halo 5 will sell 10 million copies(including digital)

x1 will pass ps4 in USA, and UK.

Call of Duty has the chance not only to outsell Odyssey, but to also surpass it lifetime. So... outsell and lifetime.

i think this race will win call of duty, but the difference will not be that big

Odyssey took the the lead in the pre-order charts, but it still has to compensate for CoD's extra week.

Other than that we know Super Mario Odyssey sold more than 1.1 million in it's first 5 days in the US. Call of Duty Black Ops 3 on PS4 did the same first week according to VGChartz although it doesn't include digital. But the last Call of Duty game Infinite Warfare did 714K first week on PS4 in the US.

Out of the gate at least, I think they will be very close to each other.

I think COD numbers will need to pick up. Especially if SMO continues to climb in the thousands place even if COD has an extra week.

Looks like Odyssey will win easily.

That Is actually very surprising.

From the "chatter" online and social media mentions, SMO is going to easily win this battle for lifetime sales. In fact, it doesn't even look close.

“Some parents let their young kids win at games, but mine never did. I don't think it was because they were particularly competitive, they just wanted to teach me a valuable lesson. Life is mostly just learning how to lose.”

Definitely COD when Digital and Physical sales are combined. I'd assume physical sales will barely go over 1 million, 1st week in the USA.

We all know Sony domination is a real thing and there is nothing Microsoft or Nintendo can do about it....

I kept telling people that the average sales for PS4 Cod were never close to 3's... BLOPS 3 is an putlier, it is the MW3 of this gen
