what was the last time COD was not the best selling game outside of the occasional GTA.

2016, beaten by Pokemon, Fifa and Uncharted.

2014, Pokemon again

2013, GTAV and Pokemon

2006-2010: Anything the Wii and DS churned out

So it's actually not that often that CoD was leading unless you add up all versions. And Fifa is doing worse than I remembered.

But considering Pokemon consistently beat CoD, if Pokemon would be to come out this year for the Switch, it should take the first spot. Otherwise, CoD, Fifa and Smash will likely duke it out on top

where are you getting all this data from? Cod has been the best selling game 2009-2012, and  2014-present. Almost every year.



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

Smash easily.

The game is trending upward every release. The last one was on the Wii U.

Sales should at least triple the Wii U version.

Smash will easily become the best selling switch game.

COD. Unless people wakes up to annualize horrendus sequels filed with endless cash desire from our best evil corporation such as Activision and EA.

This is boring.

Should have been a battle between exclusive titles only, but then it would just be Super Smash Bros, which is also too obvious.

Boy .....

Isn’t Smash going to be a port?

all signs are pointing towards it being a new game.

Black Ops iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii

I don’t know about the other year but in 2016 Pokémon Sun and Moon were the best selling game of that year.

For some reason, most publications (npd etc) split the Pokémon versions like they are two separate games lowering its yearly ranking.

If you count each version seperately, Smash might have a chance to beat CoD, FIFA and RDR2. But if you combine all versions of these games, Smash doesn't stand a chance.

The last smash sold 14 - 15 million copies.

You think this one, a hyped up game on a hugely popular console will sell less than that?

Every single major release on switch is setting records on their respective franchise.



COD is the safe bet.

An outside chance of it being FIFA 19, but that probably requires COD to do uncharacteristically bad.

RDR2 is the dark horse. Not one of the real favourites, but still has a chance of pulling it off. Depends whether it`s sales are similar to the previous RDR game, or whether the success of GTAV can give it a good boost.

Unlike any other big Nintendo game, Smash 4 released on both the Wii U and 3DS, so I doubt Smash 5 will sell a lot more than that on the Switch. Even if it does sell better than Smash 4, it still won't sell enough to beat Black Ops 4 (which will probably sell 20-25 million, 30 million including digital).

ummm... why wouldn`t you? All the different platform versions are all the same game. To see how much the game sold you add them all up, it would be silly to do it any other way.
