Nintendo are THE benchmark when it comes to 1st party game sales. Using benchmarks to contextual the size of an achievement is pretty normal, especially on a sales forum. Its why AC Vahalla outselling COD in the UK was news. And the 20m mark was something thought reserved for Nintendo or multiplatform titles until rumours of GOW passing 20m happened last week.
There are more Nintendo comparisons to be made
The exponential growth GOW and Zelda (BOTW) have seen this generation mean BOTW2 and Ragnarok could make a fun sales battle if they both arrive Q4 2021.Last edited by Otter - on 18 November 2020
