Nintendo generally has much better attach rates on their first-party titles, and Zelda is going to have a lot of legs.

 

 

It's a bet I'd be up to, anyways.

So how do you explain Skyward Sword?

An Exclusive Zelda game on Wii that had an install base of 90+ million when it was released, and sold...... 4 million copies.

Motion plus required, so a lot of the userbase didn't have access to it. On top of that, most of the userbase left a year before to move to other devices.



Proud to be the first cool Nintendo fan ever

Number ONE Zelda fan in the Universe

DKCTF didn't move consoles

Prediction: No Zelda HD for Wii U, quietly moved to the succesor

Predictions for Nintendo NX and Mobile

We can use the same reason that GoW2 only sold 4M copies with 150M+ install base

Indeed we can. But never did I make a claim about what I think God or War will sell, did I?

I just don't quite get how people think it's obvious that the Switch version of BotW is a shoe-in for 10M. That's not to say it won't.

Is tracking 1,4M copies ahead of Twilight Princess in the same timeframe. Of course, we only have VGChartz numbers, but is safe to say that BotW will, at least, sell 8M+

Gow 3 sold more than 5M on ps3 alone, here on vgc it is undertracked

By how much? And using what source? 

God of War 3 has sold the highest number at 5.2 million copies, followed by the first game (4.6 million) and then God of War 2 (4.2 million).

wow...VGC is off my .4 million.  Fair enough, God of War has only just sold 5 million.  Doesn't change my point at all, even if GoW does amazing numbers and hots 6-7 million.

Those articles are from 2012, sure GOW III sold 0 copies from 2012 till 2018, but yeah i can see it selling between 7-8 million with bundles

Maybe because the probability of it happening is high?

Official sales were 4.7 million at the end of September and it has charted high in Media Create, NPD & Gfk every week/month since then.

When Nintendo reports numbers next week, BotW will most likely be over 7 million just with the Switch version.

At this point it would be more surprising if it doesnt hit 10 million.

Okay, so let's get this straight. The last official numbers are 4.7M as of September 30th. Since then you;'re assuming it's sold another 2.3 million in the 16 or so weeks between then and now based on sales rankings of Media Create, NPD and GFK sales. So it could be 7 million right now, but you don't have any hard numbers until next week.

Does that about sum it up?

I think 7 might be on the more optimistic side of things, however, we know it's gained about 35% in Japan, since, so for the very least, above 6 million seems like a very safe bet, considering how big the holidays are in the US.



Bet with PeH: 

I win if Arms sells over 700 000 units worldwide by the end of 2017.

Bet with WagnerPaiva:

 

I win if Emmanuel Macron wins the french presidential election May 7th 2017.

Are we sure we're even gonna get numbers for Labo? I guess Nintendo will put them in the annual report if they think it is something worth reporting .

No, i suppose i just didnt go in depth enough.

Shipments end of March, 2.76 million

 

Retail sales in Japan end of March, 330k

Retail sales in Japan end of Dec, 770k

2.3x

Retail sales in US end of March, 925k

Retail sales in US end of Dec, 2.64m

2.8x

Retail sales in Japan+US end of March, 1.25m

Retail sales in Japan+US end of Dec, 3.40m

2.7x

 

Assuming that global totals are similar than it should be in the general ballpark of 7 million.
