That's a lot of copies. Well deserved, it's by far the best Ubi clone game I have played in years. Maybe since Mordor. Could not even finish games like Mad Max, Far Cry 4, or Just Cause because the formula wore thin too fast. The lore and game world keep me coming back to Horizon though.

You just had to get that shot in calling it a "ubi clone" game Lmao 

If you see that as a shot then that's your problem Lmao

My post did nothing but praise the game. But it is extremely cut and paste of the open world tropes Ubisoft popularized. I honestly cannot think of anything it does that is it's own. But that's fine because like I said, it has elements in some areas much stronger than the typical Ubi clone.

Zero Dawn has no chance to beat it in lifetime sales nor attach rate. Hell, BOTW has already beaten Horizon's attach rate like a red headed step child. 

why would attach rate matter at all?

Attach rate is the only way to directly compare the commercial popularity of two titles that don't share the same install bases.

So if BOTW sells 10m copies and switch sells 100m and horizon sells 8m copies while ps4 sells 80m does that mean the two titles are equally popular?

Hopefully this examples will demonstrate to you how ridiculuous comparing attach rates is.

Do you know how silly this sounds?

1. switch was just release recently. Zelda's sales will depend on the overall switch sold currently on the Market hence the strong attachment. 
2. Zelda is one of the few titles new user can buy because of the limited tiltes that you can buy.
3. As  Switch continue to sell and with new games that will be available to it the attachement will decrease as times goes by. 

Also, Do you think with 50M install base Horizon will have a huge attachment ratio? That is beyond silly and with the fact that there are hundred of games that you can choose from. Attachment doesn't matter at all when comparing the two. 

Anyway, please stay on topic. The one you responded was already banned for that comment. We don't need a Zelda vs Horizon comparison here. 

If you want to compare the 2. Create a new thread for it so we can have a debate with it. 

OT: For the DLC.. Hopefully there will be a stream of it. Until HZD 2 will be release lol.

Yea, my brain was a little hurt when I read that.



Well done Guerrilla, thoroughly deserved. Easily my favourite game so far this gen and Aloy has quickly become one of my favourite video game characters. The thought of more has me giddy with anticipation.

Its just sales nrs. vs sales nrs, if something sells more than something else, its more popular.

A year or two from now, we can look at numbers and say was this more popular than that?

I think zelda ends up selling more in the end. Right now however Horizon sales are ahead.

I expect horizon zero dawn will do atleast 5-6m or so, and zelda more than that.

As i noted a few comments up, attach ratio borders on meaningless here. Horizon would have needed to sell 30 - 40 million copies in its launch week to have a comparable attach ratio to Zelda. That wouldn't make Horizon and Zelda's success comparable, it'd have made Horizon the single largest launch in any entertainment industry, ever
