These prediction were made around the end of 2008, and most of them are not to Crazzy, some are lol
1. HW for PS3: 42-45 mln., X360: 35-38 mln., Wii: 65-70 mln., PSP: 65-70 mln., DS: 125-127 mln. =)
Seems high for the PS3 and PSP, but X360, Wii and DS could be right on
2. Pricecut will be only in Autumn OR slim version release with new price.
Bang on with this one
3. PS3 will be ahead of x360 atleast by 7 mln. by the end of 2009.
Not sure if he means WW or for the year, but either way both don't seem like it'll happen
4. FFXIII will sell over 1.5-2 mln. on first week in Japan and reach 3 mln. by the end of 2009.
Depends when it's released for the "3 million by the end of 2009" part, but I agree 100% on the 1.5 - 2 million first week prediction
5. GT5 will sell over 5 mln. (IF released WW) by the end of 2009.
Sounds somewhat reasonable, again depends when it's released, I'd say if it's released in November WW it should be able to sell 4 million by the end of the year.
6. MGS4 will reach 4.5-5 mln. by the end of 2009.
Definitely a possibility now that it has the greatest hits is released.
7. LBP will reach over 5 mln. by the end of 2009.
Not going to happen
8. KZ2 will sell atleast 1-2 mln. first month and reach over 5 mln. by the end of the year.
Again, not going to happen, but it did hit 1 - 2 million in the first month
9. PSP will reach 65-70 mln. (probably will have a pricecut) by the end of 2009.
I'm not sure if the PSP's price cut was this year or not, but I highly dought it'll sell 65 - 70 million by 2009
10. More(A LOT, mostly Japan) 3rd party PS3 exclusives will be annnounced.
Kind of but not really A LOT more, it was going well in around the beginning of the year, but not so much now.
11. Uncharted 2 will reach over 2.5-3 mln. by the end of 2009.
12. Heavy Rain to sell over 1 mln. by the end of 2009.
Well it's not released in 2009, but it should sell over 1 million
13. FFXIII to be released in NA by the end of 2009. Sell atleast 2 times more on PS3, then on x360 in NA.
Won't happen but it could sell two times more then the X360
14. RE5 sells better on PS3 by the end of 2009.
So far this prediction is right on
15. WKC to reach around 2 mln. by the end of 2009.
Not releasing in 2009, but could be pretty close to 2 million, maybe 1 - 1.5 million
16. Infamous to reach atleast 2-2.5 mln. by the end of 2009.
Probably won't happen, maybe 1.5 million with holiday boost.
17. Quantum theory - atleast 1 mln. by the end of 2009, DS - 500k.
Again not releasing in 2009, it could hit a 1 million on the PS3 and 500K for the DS
18. KH3 announced for PS360(or atleast for PS3) on TGS09.
Definitely a possibility
19. Kojima to announce new PS3 exclusive on TGS09.
Probably not but anything could happen
20. Ico 3 and God of War 3 to be released by the end of 2009 or early 2010. 1 and 2 mln. in first 10 weeks.
Both will be in 2010 I think, but 1 and 2 million in the first 10 weeks seems very reasonable to me
21. SO4 and ToV to be announced for PS3.
ToV is coming to the PS3 but Star Ocean IV hasn't been annouced...yet (once SE sees how well ToV does on the PS3 it'll likely bring SOIV over)
And there you have it, for being so crazzy some of those predictions are spot on.
To bad he can't come back :(
