It was a re-release of an ancient game when it came to PS4/Xbone as well. And no previous following on Nintendo platforms means plenty of buyers who haven't played it yet. Plus it's been quite well publicized, and it has the x factor of being a AAA open world game on the go, something that it still quite novel. Zelda being Switch's flagship killer app should also have helped attract an audience that's into this kind of thing.

I can't see it doing less than a million frankly.

You have some valid arguments (publicity, AAA on the go), but I still don't see any of it justifying anything near a million in sales.

The way I see it, there are simply more points in its favour than against it.

Every version of Skyrim so far has passed a million, and this one offers something unique from the rest to give it its own appeal.



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

Well, as of VGC numbers for the week ending 28th of July, it has crossed a million in physical copies alone.

So more than 52% of voters guessed wrong.

This thing will hit 2 million eventually with digital.
