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

Why is FIFA doing worst if FIFA 17 sold more than FIFA 16 and FIFA 18 is selling more than FIFA 17?

and there are not new consoles coming this year so FIFA 19 should easily beat FIFA 18.

 

my bet are on FIFA 19, COD BO 4 and RDR.

I think you're counting COD on a single platform my dude.  COD is releasing at the end of the year almost sometimes. on year by year bases COD sells the most. 



This is a tough one. Call of Duty isn't as strong as it used to be, though Black Ops carries more weight than the last few. Red Dead Redemption ended up selling like 30 million overall, so a ton of people will want it out of the gate. I'll go with RDR2, but I could easily be wrong.

15 million as of February 2017.

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

Dude, what are you talking about? You aren't even adding up the platforms of the game and blindly looking at the yearly chart from vgchartz. That doesn't even make sense. Why wouldn't you add up all versions?

Call of Duty easily. There is some serious hype going on in the CoD community for Black Ops IIII. Quite a few people were disappointed with WWII and that sucker still managed to sell more than 20 million units. Black Ops IIII will top that.

Smash Bros wins !

That's why I said unless you add up all versions. If you do, then yeah 2014  goes to CoD. Still no 2013 (GTA V) or 2016 (Fifa 17)

The basic idea was that individually CoD ain't selling that great compared to it's heyday (it's still selling very well, just for CoD standards, unimpressive numbers) and that other games can very well have a shot, especially if the game fizzles out like Ghosts or Infinite Warfare did.

The last smash sold 14 - 15 million copies.

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

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

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).

I’m going to need receipts. When was the last time a cod game touch 15 million? Lol

Where are you getting these numbers?

Smash will sell a lot more on the switch like every game release on switch. Why am I repeating myself?

We haven’t even seen the software ceilings on switch yet. The switch is selling software far higher than both the Wii U and 3ds put together. 



Where are people getting the cod numbers?

Npds? Because mirco transactions are fudging with the numbers due to a revenue based charts.
