I’m going to make BOLD prediction myself.

one MILLION copies!

How idiotic we sound now that we know more!

Anyway, a revision to my BOLD prediction:

one HUNDRED BILLION copies!



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

Ironic my prediction of 9m total was seen as overly optimistic back then and that was still low in comparison to what the game has done.



Lots of crow to be served from this thread I feel.



DON'T WIN ME CHIBI BUDDY DON'T WIN ME.

ANIMAL CROSSING NEW LEAF FRIEND CODE:- 5129 1175 1029. MESSAGE ME.
ANDY MURRAY:- GRAND SLAM WINNER!

In my opinion the N64 was not just the best console of the 5th gen but, to this day the best console ever created!

Wow. Threads like this make me happy. :)
Seeing how the game has performed (1.5M on the WiiU, 14.54M on Switch) with a bright future ahead of it.

And 10M seemed ambitious.



It's still selling above RRP in the uk, £55 ($ 70) in stores and £60 ($75) on the eshop, this is £10 ($12) above the default price for new games. Yet despite the hefty price for an old game it continues to chart practically every week in the uk top 20. Nintendo must be extremely happy with aonuma san. I don't expect that nintendo sell it below the original RRP in other countries either. Even games like uncharted 4 and last of us needed massive discounts and pack in sales to pass 15 million.



Just shows how Botw literally made the brand explode. 10 million seemed really optimistic and now it has high chances of breaking double that number.... that's CRAZY.

Aonuma is the producer, but Hidemaro Fujibayashi is the powerhouse behind the new Zelda, back to the roots.

Aonuma don't finished the first Zelda. 



Some highlights in retrospect:

Im thinking closer to 4 million

IsawYoshi said:
I'm thinking more 6 million combined

DarkD said:
It will sell 8 million max. Most likely is 3-5 million. Even that might be optimistic. If it were to multiplatform, it would easily sell 15 mill, but isolated on the Nintendo platform is going to kill it's potential.

contestgamer said:
6 million, its a niche franchise, doubt itll do 10 mil. its too small an IP



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series X will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.
