Well that depends. Is it just random Youtube videos? Then I would say, that's why.

A lot of people do not have the general knowledge of how sales work. Even I didn't and still in some ways could further increase my knowledge. I think in the PS4 100M thread I thought it would only get to 105-110M. 115M max. Now I know that's completely unrealistic. And when I joined this site, I had this idea that kind of carried over from childhood that Zelda was Nintendo's good ol' second or third best, after Pokemon and Mario. It wasn't like some kind of thought-out belief, it's not like I was 10 and saying "I bet Zelda sells almost as much as Mario!". But the way the series, and in particular Link, were marketed made me believe that the franchise was one of the biggest of Nintendo. Obviously, with BOTW now things are different, but that definitely wasn't the case when I first found this site.  Edit: (It might be if you include ALL software sales, but obviously we're talking about the impact of the series from game to game). 

Kind of an odd example but you get my point. People don't have general know how and I still find there's a lot I need to learn about sales and a lot I still do learn everyday from some of the users on this site.

Edit: I voted 130-135M in the poll. 

Well, they are vids talking about sales, so you would think sales people would be more attracted to them, but maybe not.  It wouldn't be so bad if they spoke about things as opinions, but to shoot down someone who thinks 130M is possible, while putting up their 110M as a "hard fact," is annoying.

And how did you vote 130M-135M?  That's not an option.

Well i frankly find it hard to believe that some people still think 1110M is realistic. Its clear that even if the ps5 releases this year (which is pretty unlikely), the ps4 will still continue doing well. I put 140M in your poll.

Yea, those people are crazy.  No way the PS4 hits 1.11B units.  It's impossible. 

Seriously, though, I get what you are saying.  It actually is impossible now that it stops at 110M, unless the world ends or Japan is swallowed up by a whirlpool.  We haven't even had a permanent price cut in over 2 years, with it still selling at $299.  It should drop to $249, at least, later this year and then drop to $199 within another year or two.  Personally, I chose 120M-130M, with it being closer to 130M.  But, it definitely could go higher.

Why is there no option for under 100m in the poll?

Cause I didn't want people like you voting.
