*insert goalpost joke ;p

 

With 2 weeks of sales (10/11days) its already probably over 7mil sell thru. Here is hopung my impossible prediction comes true

I always agree with you, but unfortunately this time it won't come true. The prediction I made on your thread (12.5m shipped if I recall correctly) will probably be closer. I think it would need at least 6m sold through first week in order to ship 15m this month. I hope I'm wrong tho, either way you won't be far off, which is already very impressive since people doubted our original 10m+ predictions. I mean, not long ago, a lot of people said it would be impossible for it to even do 15m LT. xD

Im really pulling for NoA to do some heavy lifting. Japan as of now has 1.6mil retail. I want 3mil+ in that region ship+digital. Its possible...

 

At worse (sell thru) 2.1mil retail years end with 2.5mil ship+digital. But if Week 51 and 52 can do lets say 450k and 250k then we can have 2.3mil with good digital and we get 3mil!

 

Cmonnnnn smashhhhh! Ill be happy with this NoA 6.5mil+ Japan 3mil RotW+Euro 4.5mil (total 14mil) but that might be too much lol

Not bad for a game that's "just a port".

Yep, NA definitely needs to do the heavy lifting. Based on the numbers we have, my expectations are:

NA: 5.5m 

Europe + RotW: 3.5m

Japan: 3m

Total: 12m shipped

I think that's a fair and realistic vision, give or take a bit. But, everything comes down to Christmas week... everything can change. We'll get a good clue next MC report.



Bet with Teeqoz for 2 weeks of avatar and sig control that Super Mario Odyssey would ship more than 7m on its first 2 months. The game shipped 9.07m, so I won

Pretty sure that Smash Ultimate, will be the best sold Switch game of all time when it is all said and done. Next years pokemon, will probably surpass it initially. But when this gen is over, smash will reign supreme. 10m+ by the end of January, easy.

I'm not so sure about that.  Pokemon has a shot at taking the lead and keeping it.

The Wii sold 100 million units and Brawl sold 13 million.  Several Pokemon games has exceeded that level.

Let's put it in perspective. If we take price into account (going by US dollars), Sun and Moon made roughly $220,000,000 with 5.5m copies, Smash Ultimate made $300,000,000 with 5m copies. To make the same, S&M would have to have sold 7.5m copies. So, Smash may have sold around 10% less, but it made 136% of what Pokemon did. Them's some numbers, right there.

Cant help but wonder how much more revenue Smash generated with accessories/peripherals factored in.

IIts actually better than that. Sun/moon had no limted edition, smash has different skus that are above $60 msrp!

Its probably the top game of all time in terms of making revenue outside of software. Nothing comes close

Both good points! I was just giving a ballpark estimate anyway. It made a lot more money (and likely sold more consoles) than Pokemon did, regardless. 3DS was near saturation at that point.
