GC data is missing and Wii U will have no problem matching it

Hm... won't it? I don't know, GC TP vs. Wii U BotW feels like a far harder battle than Wii TP vs. Switch BotW.

Wii vs. Switch might as well be over at this point, with Breath of the Wild being better received (longer legs for sure), it's actually THE system-seller for the Switch (something TP never hoped to be), will still get plenty of hype with the upcoming DLC and hasn't even had a holiday season yet. Despite all of that, it's already ahead... no contest.

Wii U version on the other hands will surely have much worse legs (it's already taking a very steep decline), and whatever DLC and holiday hype the game gets will be all focused on the Switch version - that, and Nintendo's making sure it never gets too much stock. I don't think it outselling GC TP is guaranteed at all.

It did 1m on March alone, according to Nintendo. I don't think it will have a problem shipping another 590k lifetime. Will be near (or even reach) it on their next quarterly report.



Bet with Teeqoz for 2 weeks of avatar and sig control that Super Mario Odyssey would ship more than 7m on its first 2 months. The game shipped 9.07m, so I won

the big issue with this comparison is BotW release in spring where as TP was a holiday release.



End of 2009 Predictions (Set, January 1st 2009)

Wii- 72 million   3rd Year Peak, better slate of releases

360- 37 million   Should trend down slightly after 3rd year peak

PS3- 29 million  Sales should pick up next year, 3rd year peak and price cut

Serious? WiiU version is over 1mil already. It wont have switch version legs duh but its already still selling well. Look at PAL and MC charts for april. Its still chugging along even if small. Hell if anything the switch being supply restraint is helping the wiiu version sell more lol

Which makes BotW winning much easier as its never had a holiday and it has a story dlc coming

I hope they include Zelda on their marketing campaigns later this year. Imagine how many people want to buy the game but are waiting for holidays/bundles/sales. I bet it will sell a lot during black friday! Not to mention people that will pick it up as a complementary game for Odyssey or Splatoon 2.

Regardless of marketing, I think at least until Odyssey is released, Breath of the Wild will remain THE game to get with a Switch for most people.
