In all likelihood he is right, that it'll end up between 40 and 50 million. I think most would agree that it'll hit 40 million. It's one of the few games Nintendo pushes bundles for. As for animal crossing that doesn't seem to crazy, the game will most likely be over 30 million by the end of the year, which is just a huge amount to get in such a short period of time. The game has only been out for around 9 months.

Those numbers are ridiculous for ps4 exclusives. No way will spider man sell another 10 million on ps4, no way will TLOU make it to 25 million on ps4. TLOU 2 definitely won't get 25 million on ps4 alone. The other 2 are probably doubtful but might be possible.

Well, I do think 40+ Million is possible for both, but that would require some extreme circumstances, like Switch continuing to sell software at unprecedented rates in 2021, 2022, and beyond, no MK9, a dry spell in terms of releases, etc.

How. Both of these games will be over 30 million by the end of the year. How is it so difficult to believe that over the next 3 years or so they will manage to sell another 10 million? Sales would have to die off completely for them not to make it, both of these franchises are known for having legs. You believe that spiderman will sell at least another 5 million on a dead console when it's been replaced with a remaster. You are completely over estimating ps4 games and under estimating switch games.

You know the difference between 30 and 40 is 10 not 20. Zelda hasn't traditionally outsold animal crossing. The best selling animal crossing games have sold pretty close to 3d mario games. I don't get what you are trying to say here. Are you trying to say that Zelda and Mario will outsell animal crossing?
