Congrats Lipe, this was a bold prediction and you are on pace to win it.

Thanks. ^^ It seems Splatoon is a game that never ceases to surprise us!



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

Nice.



Bet with bluedawgs: I say Switch will outsell PS4 in 2018, he says PS4 will outsell Switch. He's now permabanned, but the bet will remain in my sig.

Nice indeed.

By the way, I'm currently replaying Okami. I think that's probably a little bit off-topic, but since it's also nice, I thought it made sense.



It's possible,but it also is,indeed,a really bold prediction.There's too much games in november for splatoon to compete with.

Nope. Over its lifetime probably but not that quickly. Zelda probably won't have sold that much.

Breath of the wild is at that number right now, counting Swtich only. Wii U version is another 1.1+ million on top. So looks like Zelda did it.

You mean Zelda won't sell 5m LT? Or in 6 months? If it's the later, of course it won't: it's a launch game (smaller install base) and it won't experience a holiday season during its 6 months. It's a completely different story for Splatoon 2 tho, which will release on a 5m or 6m install base and enjoy a full holiday season on its first 6 months. ^^ 

Well, Zelda might have outsold Splatoon 1 in its frist 6 months.  I mean its at basically 6 million right now and its been what 7 months, or is it 8?

Pretty bold, not sure how many Switches will be sold by then, but I'm doubtful it can hit 4M that soon

Have doubts that MK8 DX can hit 4M by the end of the year too :/

Software Numbers:

BotW: 4.70M
Mk8DX: 4.42M
Splatoon 2: 3.61M
1-2 Switch: 1.37M
ARMS: 1.35M

MK8DX easily got that 4 million. Looks like we will have 3 games that sell over the Splatoon 1 4.67 number. I Wonder what Mario Oddyssey will do by Jan 1 2018.

Odyssey at 2M in 3 days, so it will see a good boost during the holiday

I bet Oddyssey will join the 5m team before the year ends.

Now that's what I call bold. Probably will not happen but why not dream? I'm still skeptical about the actual success of Switch itself.

Hey, in the end they were tied. Splatoon 2 shipped about 5m, basically what the first game did lifetime. Pretty good for the first 6 months.
