lifetime? SMO  (I hope, it deserves the sales more)
this year? CoD

pre-order? CoD.... I think.



My hope : SMO

Reality : *ugh* COD ....



Switch Friend Code : 3905-6122-2909 

This year SMO will be outsold but life SMO will outsell COD ww2 lifetime

Just to clarify, I voted for COD in the poll because this is Pre-Orders and not lifetime sales



Cod will outsell SMO, install base to high for ps4. Lifetime global will be smo though



Around the Network

CoD will crush Odyssey in every sales catagory. It will have more pre-orders, more sales the first week, and more lifetime sales. Galaxy is the highest selling 3D Mario game and it only hit 10 million on the Wii, with a 100 million user install base. The last Black Ops sold 14 million just on PS4 alone. If the Switch winds up selling 130 million units lifetime, and Odyssey becomes a Nintendo Selects title for $20, then it might beat CoD WWII. But that's a really long shot.

CoD both at launch and lifetime. Even at its worst (Infinite Warfare), CoD is still the best selling game of the year, and this CoD is not only looking really good, but it's also garnered quite a bit of attention. No doubt in my mind that a lot of CoD players who passed on IW are going to come back for this one. I'm honestly thinking it'll do close to BO3 (PS4) numbers.

CoD has only ever sold over 8 million once on PS4 with Black Ops 3 according to physical VGCharts sales, so I don't think it's so in the bag for it to out sell SMO's lifetime sales, especially when I think SMO has a good shot at 15 mil itself worldwide.

As for us preorders, probably CoD.

Galaxy sold 12.75 million copies, not including the sequel. 

Galaxy's sales in Japan were 1.2 mil. Super Mario 3D Land is the best selling 3D Mario in Japan at 2.15 mil. Guess which game Odyssey is outtracking on Japanese pre-order charts?

Mario Kart Wii Sold 36.95 million units on a 100 mil install base, giving it roughly a 37% attach rate. Mario Kart 8 on Wii U sold 8.35 mil on a 14 mil install base giving it roughly a 60% attach rate. By your logic, would Mario Kart 8 have sold 60 million on a 100 million console install base?

If anything, while using attach rates can be very dangerous in terms of speculation, using them in moderation to see a sales trend is ok. Which would make Mario Odyssey *more* likely to match COD lifetime, since attach rates for Nintendo games have gotten better at least on Wii U.
