I don't think it'll happen this year, whatever the case. Unless there's a big XO game I don't know about, but I was under the impression that CoD was their last semi-big title for the year while Wii U still has Smash (and maybe Captain Toad in certain regions, though I'm expecting that to sell more to existing owners). There's also the whole Amiibo thing. I honestly have no idea how that's going to turn out.

As for next year... not sure. It really depends on marketing and a couple of key games. Microsoft have done a pretty good job of turning the perception of their console around, while Nintendo still have some work to do.

Yeah, Halo MCC. It released the week after COD...

Should probably mention Far Cry 4 and GTA V as well, they should help sell Xboxes



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

AC Unity as well. Also, did he just call COD a semi-big title?

Oh right, AC Unity as same as Halo week. Keep mixing up what the current week is and where VGC is at

And... yeah, apparently he did call COD semi-big. Despite it being about the 2nd biggest console game in the world right now, with only GTA ahead of it.

Nope, wii u sales will increase too much after smash bros.


You sure have a lot of faith in Smash Bros. I think it will increase sales but not like Halo, COD and sunset. I'm pretty sure they will pass or be with 100,000 after black friday sales.


A lot of people in this forum seem to consider Smash for Wii U to be like the second coming of Christ for some reason...

I don't think Smash is going make that much of a difference tbh, the holidays release schedule is always tight as hell and with so many games coming out on PS4/X1 I doubt many consumers are even going to consider getting a Wii U to play smash specially when they can get their fix on the 3DS version.

Well... Mario Kart 8 was already that, so Smash is more like the third coming...

a collection, a yearly multiplat and a small exclusive won't have even half the impact of smash.

Smash must have purchasers have to much overlap with Mario Kart and other Nintendo franchises that already launched. If they didnt pick up a Wii U for Mario Kart why would they pick one up for Smash?

Also have to add that retailers are mostly ignoring the Wii U for Black Friday weekend. Think the only deal is at Best Buy.  Wii U will be left in the dust that weekend.  Wii U will be passed by X1 before November ends.



Its libraries that sell systems not a single game.

So, you think there is a huge overlap between smash fanbase and other nintendo games, but thinks a halo collection and another cod/ ass creed will bring tons of new buyers? also, bear in mind that many people are still going to buy mario kart 8, 3d world, dk... even fans of those series tend to wait untill the console has an X number of games they like. Smash is just a big push to an already great back catalogue of games.

Halo 5 must have purchasers have to much overlap with Forza and other Xbox franchises that already launched. If they didnt pick up a X1 for Forza why would they pick one up for Halo?

man I do enjoy what Nintendo comes up with... But there is no way smash and Nintendo can hold the fort this Holliday season... Everything is pointing in that direction... Only a shortage could change the facts by now...

halo/cod fans are in bigger numbers than smash fans and they had no real reason to switch before... And pricing is compelling on top of it...
