If switch version can hit 10mil alone that would put zelda at at least 12mil lifetime.

Im still going with 10mil but if botw hits lets say close to or even over 8mil by years end, thw game could pull mega huge numbers. Like 15mil lol

Easy, now. I like to play optimistic as well but I have a hard time seeing more than 6 million units move this year. 

I like to be cautious as well, but Nintendo should announce 5m shipped + digital next month for its first 4 months (March/April/May/June). With another 6 months remaining this year and a full holiday ahead, 6m is basically garanteed at this point. ^^ 



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

Nintendo has BotW at 2.76 as of March 31st, VGC had it at 2.07 as of April 2nd. Right now, it's at 2.91 as of May 27th. That's an additional 840k of sales. Add that to Nintendo's number of 2.74, that would put it at 3.60, not counting whatever digital sales it accumulated within that time.
Let's say, hypothetically, that those 690k sales between Nintendo's 2.76 and our 2.07 are all digital (I highly doubt it, but let's go with it), that's 75% of its sales that would be physical. Let's say this game maintains that mark. Let's take this 2.91 mark we have no, divide it by 75%. That puts it at 3.88 million.
So as of May 27th, 2017, combing physical + digital, Nintendo + VGC, that puts The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild somewhere between 3.60 - 3.88 million copies, sooo close to 4 million.
Nintendo's next press release, can't come soon enough!



splatoon week might see a bump for BOTW



Updated with week 13!

BotW is the clear winner again and this gap will only keep increasing. I actually don't believe I'll say this, but next week we can expect BotW to be up again. As for TP Wii, it will keep decreasing.

This is beginning to turn into a bloodbath. 
Twilight Princess drops to 59,601 units the next week and Breath of the Wild may very well go back over 80,000. 

If this keeps up, Breath of the Wild, on the Switch ALONE, will outsell Twilight Princess on the Wii AND GameCube!!

Actually, this is very plausible. Personally, I expect BotW to sell 6m alone on Switch within its first year (7.5m combined).

I think so as well. 
I think Nintendo will announce 4 million units shipped + digital when they announce they their latest earnings at the end of the month. (Switch version only. + Wii U, it should be around 5.3 million)



Gonna be great to finally have a 10m+ selling Zelda game. Zelda has always kind of straddled that sales line between just a popular franchise and a massive one, but BOTW should officially place it into the latter camp after 30+ years.



Updated with week 14!

Once again BotW wins by a good margin. Next week, Twilight Princess on Wii will keep falling, but we still have to wait to see how BotW holds up. In any case, it will still win again.

The gap is at 540k in favor of Breath of the Wild (Switch).
