I had intended to have a poll for Horizon: Forbidden West sales this week, but I didn't notice any press release from Sony about first week sales so far. So I've decided to wait another week and focus on Elden Ring instead. The little that is known about its sales so far is that it has done very well in the UK, selling more than twice as much in its first week than Horizon: Forbidden West. Of course, Elden Ring is available on more platforms, but the biggest non-FIFA/non-CoD launch since Red Dead Redemption 2 strongly points to something huge going on here, so hopefully the poll options will do the game justice.

What are your lifetime sales expectations for Elden Ring?

...

Bonus question: If you've played Elden Ring already, what are your impressions/thoughts on the game?



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

A Biased Review Reloaded / Open Your Eyes / Switch Shipments

It's looking comparable to Cyberpunk 2077 on PC and likely will be better in console platforms given the horrible world of mouth of CDPR's game. So at least as much as Cyberpunk 2077 I reckon.

And it's pretty good, a bit of that FromSoft Souls jank on the gameplay side but the open world is better than Breath of the Wild IMO.



 

 

 

 

 

Assuming the recent reports of the game having already sold at least ten million copies on PC (according to Steam Spy, which might not be completely accurate), 20 million sounds low. Assuming Steam Spy is overestimating the game's sales, I guessed 20-22.4 million, although I didn't really put much thought into it. If Steam Spy is right, 20 million might be low even now, let alone lifetime, but on the other hand, my first thought is that 20 million is already way above what I thought the game could reach.

Reading the first post and the bits of info there and considering the numbers provided by Steam Spy, I'm kind of regretting my 20-22.4 million vote; I think I should maybe have voted for a higher number.



I was generous because George R. R. Martin is attached to it and it is one of the highest rated games of all time. Dark Souls 3 hit 10 million as of the last update I’ve seen. I voted an optimistic 15-17.4 million

I didn’t realize they were reporting such high numbers so far. Kinda regretting my numbers now

Prolly or even at least 20M sold. Providing Steamspy numbers are even remotely true, it was the biggest multi-platform hyped game this year. Usually, those perform well above what we might think.

Still, can't wait to see official numbers from Bandai Namco.



Switch Friend Code : 3905-6122-2909 

More than 30 million. The fact that the Steam CCU numbers actually increased for the second weekend from already insane numbers, is pretty much unheard of for SP games and tells me it gonna have legs. I’m sure a portion of buyers will get swept up in the hype and then hate the game but they won’t know that until they’ve bought it.

DS3 selling 10 million shows that From’s user unfriendly way of doing things does have a large audience. I guess it shouldn’t be a surprise as games like PUBG, Dota and CS have hundreds of millions of players, and those can be absolutely brutal until you get your bearings.



The hype for Elden Ring was sky high, I think it'll definitely do at least 20 million.

Is that the best selling game for From Software so far (excluding Elden Ring if it applies)?

Yeah. Well, until now apparently.
