Forums - Nintendo Discussion - BOLD Prediction: Zelda BotW will do a Whopping 10mil Lifetime! Update 10mil Achieved

I think it can. It's a critically acclaimed game with 3+ years worth of hype behind it launching on a new console with a limited library that's not going out of its way to appeal to non-gamers.  It'll probably be close to two years before the Switch has a large enough library to where someone can reasonably say that they own a Switch but don't own BotW without people looking at them funny.

Perhaps it could. Tbone's made some wild claims that have been pretty close to accurate. I'm starting to become a believer.

How is it going to cripple the switche's marketing message, they should just simply announce that their is a seperate bundle, it doesn't needs adds or marketing. You're forgeting the millions of gamers on the internet who are exposed to gaming news every day through youtube, social media, and forums. 

My proposal makes perfect sense, i'm not a statistical firm in order to throw out numbers for you, and my proposal has no drawback at all. 

The sale numbers of the pro controller alone show that people do not want to play using the joycons. 

If the people who demand such a bundle are exclusively found on the internet (hence no marketing needed), then it's safe to conclude that there's no significant demand for a Switch SKU without Joy-Cons.

Are you sure that you aren't merely pretending that your personal preference is a lot more widespread than it actually is?



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

A good chance, especially if the Switch is a success

I don't see Nintendo supporting the Wii U version too much but I think it will hit at least 7-8M

..but once again, if I had to guess, I would say no :p

Easy and it will be closer to 15mill depending on how close the next ''new'' zelda comes out



Bet reminder: I bet with Tboned51 that Splatoon won't reach the 1 million shipped mark by the end of 2015. I win if he loses and I lose if I lost.

First of all everyone is on the internet, i did not just state specific gaming websites. 

I woudn't say i'm pretending, i'm just basing it on trends and Amazon sales and yes a couple of anecdotes.

Making such a bundle woudn't cost them anything, and we've seen MS and Sony even losing money on the initial console sale so it isn't unprecedent. 



Twilight Princess sold near 8.5-9 million - not including the HD remake.

Ocarina of Time sold 7.6 million on the N64 alone.

Nintendo has done a really good job the last several years quietly nuturing the Zelda fanbase. I think it should blow past 10 million sales very quickly.



I predict NX launches in 2017 - not 2016

Haha you'll be wrong again just like how you thought Zelda would score below 90

The reviews are rigged but consumers are not!
