Fact doesn't care about feeling

Exactly, so stop it.

Compare hard sales numbers and stop creating conditions that differs from one to another to try to downplay facts.

LoD sold little over a million and a half. 

Wii sports sold 84 million. Sales are only 1 potential measuring method on how to judge the quality of a game. Hardly a reliable one at that

I don't think quality has ever entered that discussion to begin with, that was purely about sales.

And yeah, sales have nothing to do with quality.

Fact TLoU has sold more than BotW.

BOTW may have actually outsold it at this point as TLOU total is at 17m while BOTW total was at 16.5m at the end of September the latter is still selling at the rate of around 800k - 1m per quarter.

Edit: 17m is at retail as I think TLOU is at 20m although BOTW will pass that mark as well

I wonder if BOTW 2 will receive a better score on Metacritic if they're addressing the complain of traditional dungeon and weapon breaking element.

I dont think so. Because it wont have that shock factor or that new experience from a zelda game anymore.



Pocky Lover Boy!

How many of those TLoU units sold are full $60? How much money which Sony got from those TLoU sales number?

Nintendo games could still sold millions after many years at full $60, why would they have to pretend that their games are the same as other companies and lower the price, or even give them for free? To get a lot less money?

1st post: I don't have a clue, do you? Also that doesn't concern me at all.

2nd post: Because that's good for the customers.

I don't know about you, but I think about my money, not about companies money, I'm a customer, not their company staff. I'm looking for my side of the deal, not theirs.

When companies pulls shit like Sony did with the Vita cards it makes me sad, not happy, I don't know why would I think otherwise.

- Doesn't concern, still bother enough to compare LT sales of both games, even combined the sales of both vanilla ver and remaster ver to make it look better, ok.  

- If there's a problem, then no way Nintendo games keep selling millions at full price after many years. You aren't a Nintendo fan, why do you have to care?

I don't know if I should reply as that post got you banned, but I don't see a problem in explaning that to you, so I will.

I'm not the one that started comparing sales of them, the person I replied to did it, but in a way that downplayed one of them while saying only facts matter, what I did was simply bring the hard cold sales here then.

What doesn't concerned me was how much any of them sold at full price or not, as that was irrelevant to the actual sales number comparision.

I didn't say there was a problem, only that I look from my side, the consumer side, instead of Nintendo side, and from my side I would like very much that they did slash their games prices as that affects my purchasing power directly.

It may not look like it to you but I love several games that Nintendo made, even if I'm not really a fan of their bussiness model indeed, those are separated things.

And just as a heads up, BotW looks like a great game to me, one I'm certainly interested into, the problem here was trying to downplay TLoU sales to make it look even better, not anything against against BotW to begin with.

I think this thread is an odd way of saying you're surprised that a game, that has 30 years worth of history, has some of the highest critic scores and is achieving its best sales for the franchise is being beat by a new IP that is universally acclaimed by the users who played it.

It happens, just accept it and move on.

I dont think that is what it means. I think the change from previous Zelda games to BOTW is what people wanted. And it delivered. 



Pocky Lover Boy! 

I'm hoping they will increase more monster variety and most importantly tied with the game physics. Lynel was great in term of difficulty but lacking in the physics feedback.

No disagreement from me. It was my favorite game of the decade and 2nd of all time. Really hoping BOTW2 is 2020.

I have a feeling it will be at March again but in 2021.

Because BOTW sales on Switch is better, you have to combined the last gen ver and the remaster ver together to beat it already show how much better BOTW Switch is compared to TLOU PS4. Beside, no one combine the vanilla ver sales of last gen with the remaster ver sales of current gen just to compare to the Switch ver except you. Not to mention about the timing release of the both games: PS3 ver is 2013, PS4 ver is 2014 and BoTW Wii U/Switch is 2017. If both games came out at the same year, what would happen now?
