Unlike any other big Nintendo game, Smash 4 released on both the Wii U and 3DS, so I doubt Smash 5 will sell a lot more than that on the Switch. Even if it does sell better than Smash 4, it still won't sell enough to beat Black Ops 4 (which will probably sell 20-25 million, 30 million including digital).

I’m going to need receipts. When was the last time a cod game touch 15 million? Lol

Where are you getting these numbers?

Smash will sell a lot more on the switch like every game release on switch. Why am I repeating myself?

We haven’t even seen the software ceilings on switch yet. The switch is selling software far higher than both the Wii U and 3ds put together.

Call of Duty Black Ops 3 - PS4 - 14.99 million
Call of Duty Black Ops 3 - XOne - 7.26 million
Total: 22.25 million, excluding digital

Well, VGchartz Lol I don’t trust this site.

Anyways, the new one ain’t touching that. Xbox is dead as a platform.

Huh?

The series has sold over 250m as of February 2016,  https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20160211006451/en

whichmeans that as of that point the average yearly sales for the franchise was around 19m units, and that number would be higher with the absence of the first 4 years, as CoD really took off with Modern Warfare, and no CoD title released in 2004.

So yes CoD almost always sells over 15m, WW2 has definitely sold over 15m units. The only one in recent memory that probably hasn't is infinite warfare.

 

Also here's another tip, if you're not going to accept data from VGChartz, maybe supply data of your own when making claims, especially ones that go against the norm. Don't make other people search to prove your point.



LTD: PS4 - 125m, Switch - 110m, XBO - 51m

2020: PS4 - 9m, Switch - 22.5m, XBO - 2.5m, PS5 - 4.5m, XBX - 2.8m

If Red read redemption releases I'm gonna bet it's the best selling. Even though CoD bo4 might over take it. But I'm going with rdr



One of those multiplatform games.

VGChartz may not be very accurate, but I doubt they're off by more than 2 million here.

While XBox is slowing down in hardware, software sales aren't that bad. And PS4 was actually up YoY in software. So Black Ops 4 can definitely outsell Black Ops 3, which released back in 2015 (when there weren't as many PS4s and X1s yet).

CoD WWII has more than 15 million people on the leaderboards on PS4 alone and that isn't counting people who only play the campaign and never started MP. Xbox One has about 8 million people on the leaderboards. On PC it's more or less dead, but should be another million or so. Granted, you have the occasional double accounts here and there, but that should even out with the people who only play single player. It isn't perfectly accurate, but it gives you an idea and based on that I assume that WWII has sold well over 20 million.

what was the last time COD was not the best selling game outside of the occasional GTA.

2016, beaten by Pokemon, Fifa and Uncharted.

2014, Pokemon again

2013, GTAV and Pokemon

2006-2010: Anything the Wii and DS churned out

So it's actually not that often that CoD was leading unless you add up all versions. And Fifa is doing worse than I remembered.

But considering Pokemon consistently beat CoD, if Pokemon would be to come out this year for the Switch, it should take the first spot. Otherwise, CoD, Fifa and Smash will likely duke it out on top

You have to add up all the versions. Not adding them up is just deceptive its sales of a game??



PS4 and PC gaming

 

PC Specs:
AMD Ryzen 9 3900x
Zotac Nvidia RTX 2070 Super
32GB DDR4 Corsair Vengence Ram 3200 mhz
1TB Samsung Qvo SSD
Corsair Spec-Delta Case
Asus ROG B450-F Motherboard

Either Fifa or Call of Duty. As always



I will go with Red Dead Redemption 2. But I wouldn't be surprised if Black Ops 4 took the crown.
