Now it's looking like it'll be at 4 million at the end of the year. And I think Nintendo's numbers for December 30th may confirm that.
Maybe, I undershot my 5 million prediction. LOL


Time to bump the 4mil thread so soon?

Teeqoz. ReimTime. Slade. And all.
Do you guys wanna know why i becomed so boring? ( because i know i'm becomed boring, is what i wanted to become).
Because i still didn't hearted the simple word... "sorry".

And now you can even link me a 7 months old prediction, too bad that since that i'm becomed the best predictor for this game, better than Tbone who predicted 5 million LT by half November, when my prediction was already bigger ( 5.5m ) back in half september.

Many guys here asked the apologies to Tbone. Where are mine? Because i hear "congrats tbone!!!", "Tbone you was right" "sorry Tbone i will never doubt about you", and Tolu?

Has ONE guy on this site even asked me some apologies? some "you was right" comment? NO.

Teeqoz. We made an avatar bet. You know. What's happed? You know you already lost. Have you said "you was right?" No. In my "Can PS4 ship 10 million thread" i said i was wrong about PS4 sell < 100 million, have you said "i was wrong, you was right about Splatoon >5 million?"
No, you didn't.

ALL time i bumped a Splatoon thread, the only thing i wanted hear was a simple "give me some credit".
Which is never happened. All time "congrats tbone", Tolu never existed here.

So, ok, congrats Tbone. You was the only guy who predicted insane numbers for Splatoon. Who is Tolu?

This was the last Splatoon bump, since i still didn't heart what i wanted. A SIMPLE CREDIT TO ME.


Goodbye, i will never back on VGChartz.


Im sorry! Don't Go!!! (though I read you over at GAF all the time xD) 

Edit: don't give up! I believe in you! 


I feel the same way I was laughed in my face for my post I got an idea 

Splatoon prediction threads are so funny to read, I remember when Reggie said they aim for Splatoon to be to shooters what MK is to racers and people where banging on about how it'll be niche.

Nope, doubt it will even sell a million honestly. I'm expecting W101 numbers...

Splatoon did to shooters what Mario Kart did to racing games and Smash Bros. for fighting games.

Only Nintendo can do this.

There is a big reason why MK and SSB became big because all the charecters in those games are existing ones and familiar to everyone, but splatooon is is not using a single charecter from their IPs which is a big difference so dont expect success in this game unless they  add charecters from their IPs. Nintendo games sells only if the game has their IP charecters but not from the scratch. Always nitendo finds big success in milking their ips but not new original IPs recently and times have changed so Nintendo and gaming is not like old days for new IPs to get big sucess unless the platform is big, huge marketing, reviews are great for the game.


Definitely, it's hilarious to read today some things from this thread. :)

I was wise not to post in these Splatoon threads when they were first made...

No lol, it'll be very lucky to reach 2 million.

Welp, the internet will be the internet, silly claims everywhere

Just because you have an opinion doesn't mean you are necessarily right.

Old Splatoon threads are so funny reading through them.
