Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Skyrim Switch sales prediction poll


I predict lifetime sales of...

Under 500k 91 17.53%
500k-1m 177 34.10%
1-1.5m 144 27.75%
1.5-2m 58 11.18%
Over 2m 49 9.44%

Just realized I never actually made my own prediction: 1-1.5 million.

The strong publicity it's getting, its well known and liked brand name, the novelty of playing such a game on the go, and Botw establishing an audience that likes open world adventures will carry it passed the million mark in spite of it being an old game.

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

Around the Network

I was thinking around a million before, but with DOOM now coming a week before, probably around 750k, DOOM will steal some of its sales away.

Probably no crazy numbers but I guess it would be good for the game to reach 1M (It probably won't happen close to launch though...).

So as of now a majority of voters, albiet a slim majority, think it will sell less than a million copies.

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

My prediction: More than 5 copies, less than 3 trillion copies sold

Around the Network

1 to 1.5 million. I think people who got into Breath of the Wild will want to pick this up as their "other open world game".

Tag:I'm not bias towards Nintendo. You just think that way (Admin note - it's "biased".  Not "bias")

Switch is 9th generation. Everyone else is playing on last gen systems!

Granted, I believe the Oblivion is the superior Elder Scrolls title and is more deserving of a re-release with updated graphics. Skyrim is by no means a bad game.

Well, it's a personal opinion, I know a lot of people love/like the game. For me, it was almost unplayable. It was bugged as hell (and an awful lot of them made me quit the game several times), gameplay is as shitty as it could be, the world is samey, I was really tired of going through the exact same snow scenarios (cities were cool though).... The best thing about it was probably that you had a lot of freedom. But that doesn't justify the rest. If there's something I hate about games is being unpolished. I'd expect more from a company like Bethesda. And I suppose that the game is now not bugged, but I played it day one and it was a living hell.

Don't expect anything from Bethesda proper. They always release broken, buggy games. Unpolished shit shows are Bethesda Softworks' MO at this point. Just be happy it didn't brick your console. Their engine needs a rewrite to fix all the broken-ness.

Currently (Re-)Playing: Starcraft 2: Legacy of the Void Multiplayer, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past

I don't know why but I can see Skyrim sales close to ARMS sales, the target audience seems to be the same

You are comparing two VERY, VERY different genres here my friend. I do not think that the target audience is the same for these two games.
