Nope to be honest most people thought that Spider-man would have been bigger than what VGC showed from what I saw. And they were correct it should have indeed been bigger and was corrected lol.
From what I remembered like 60% of people were saying that the saturation was too great and 40% were saying Spider-Man would lead to huge sales (although it was more like a general claim than any big prediction). Then when the time came and VGC showed small numbers, people instantly rationalized it as saturation, even most of the people who originally thought Spider-Man was gonna be huge didn't think twice about it and just accepted it as saturation.
But either way, I wouldn't be surprised ... either way.
