Why would I want to touch an E?


Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

A Biased Review Reloaded / Open Your Eyes / Switch Gamers Club

brawl will outsell gta4 COMBINED pretty easily; at least a few million

a) wii will have over 50% market share by this fall
b) smash historically has higher attach rate
c) gtas for ps2 did subsequently better each year as the userbase was bigger; this time the userbase is much smaller
d) a lot of the more casual gamers who bought gta on ps2 are only getting a wii this generation, thus taking away sales
e) legs legs legs...this will be only smash bros for wii (maybe last one ever), whereas there will be another gta within 18-30 months of gta4

smash bros brawl will sell more than any gta has ever sold (15mil is the best gta for a system so far, and gta4 won't top 15mil)



in fact, i'd bet that the 3-year sales of the following games will all beat the 3-year sales of GTA4 on both consoles combined:

super smash bros

super mario galaxy

mario kart

wii fit

wii play



Bets:Missed by 420k I bet leo-j vg$500 that wii will sell 31 million by 7/31/08.  Sorry, I don't think he has enough vg$ to make it with all of u that wish you could. Hit, with room to spare I bet kingofwale a 1-week ban that wii Americas ltd sales>360 Americas ltd sales as of the numbers for week ending 7/05/08 (using vgchartz homepage #s)

Predictions:

Wii will sell 18-20mil by 12/31/07  CHECKWii will sell 45mil+ WW by 12/31/08Wii will surpass PS2 sales WW by 11/17/11 (5yr anniversary)Wii Fit will hit 12mil sales in 2009MKWii+SSBB+Wii Fit+SMG > 50 mil sales by 2010 > gta4+mgs+gt5+ff13+haze+lbp

bah, i don't have time for your mind games.



Hmm. Gona say GTA4 combined by a margin but close on single platforms to brawl give or take, even with the wii lead in hardware. GTA4 will be massive especially if there are more price drops for the 360 and PS3. This is life time btw not weekly or wahtever. Guess Guess Guess



Ynwa.

I'm thinking GTAIV, but only because it's on two platforms.

-edit-

So had it because like a weekly thing for this thread to be made?


 I agree... on both the comment and the question.



Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Games sell better on consoles that sell better. Even though Grand Theft Auto 4 may be released for the Xbox 360, and Playstation 3, it still, will not sell more than Super Smash Bros. Brawl.



GTA IV. Remember that it will be published on 3 platforms. THREE DIFFERENT PLATFORMS. The PC port will be released 1 year later than the 360/PS3 versions!



i bet in the first few weeks they will combined outsell it but in the end brawl will be about even with them both combined
