Yeah, sure, cause there are so many new ip that can make +8M in the frist year, rigth. S/

 

Anyway, horizon is doing amazing numbers! Who would have thought that? Is it outselling halo?

It may end up outselling every Halo but 3. 

Damn, amazing.

The game realy deserves it. The combat is so great and different, i mean, you realy fell like "you are the hunter, and you need to be smart to beat the robots, cause they are f*#@# strong."

You create traps, you attack weak spots, you can use the robots weapons, you create many different weapons and.... you always feels like head on combat is a bad idea, cause the f#$@ are so damn strong on high difficulty.



Prediction: In 5 years Nintendo will Lauch a "Core Mario game"  very similar to Astro Bot. That said, many will Ignore Astro Bot existence and say Nintendo created this concept.

What prediction?

It was a thread where we were asked to predict Nintendo's numbers from their Q4 financials. Stuff like BotW lifetime shipments, MK8D lifetime shipments, etc.

I did some very quick guesstimates, and most were pretty good, but I seriously underestimated SMO.

daaaaaaaaaaamn, i missed it. :(

Let me guess, a Tbone thread right? :P

when was that thread? Because if it was by end of year, waiting for Nintendo Q4 result, i would have probabily said 8 million shipped, if it was before launch, then i would have said more like 6 million.



2020 predictions: NSW 21m, PS5 6m, XSX 4.5m, PS4 9m, XB1 3m
(PS5 and XSX predictions will most likely change after we know enough about them)

Horizon sold that much??? Wow, that's freaking amazing! Never would have thought. It's an incredible game and deserves all of those sales. But wow... Unexpected! Brilliantly done Guerrilla Games!



It'll sell 9 million LT for sure now.
Wow, this is a new IP selling like a established HIT franchise! O_O insane!!!

When PS4 has a huuuge user base of almost 80 million.. its exclusive games better sell at least 8-10 million. Nothing impressive to me.

That’s not how it works. When a platform has so many games, the game sales usually tend to be lower because the buyer has so many options to choose from. That’s not even mentioning the F2P and PS+ games.



Wow. How is this compared to botw?

So guerilla got their halo killer in the end?

So you expect Ratchet and Clank to sell 8-10 million?

Breath of the wild sold 7.5 million by the end of 2017.

 

Since that, it sold another 100k in Japan alone, so Zelda outsold Horizon... but we already knew that.
