Yeah, it would be strange if Smash Bros for Switch isnt LT 15m+.

Again 15mil ship+digital by years end a possibility :p

Definitely, especially if its rally September release.

It’s crazy to think of how many 10M-sellers the Switch will have. Odyssey is already there, MK8D will hit the mark this fiscal year and BOTW will hit the mark next fiscal year. On top of that, Pokemon will hit the mark (probably twice) as well as Animal Crossing, 2D MARIO, Super Smash Bros. and so many more. I could see the console’s top 10 best-sellers all above 10M if Nintendo really supports the console for 6+ years.

Just had a quick look at the Game Database here, and there only 6 PS4 games sold above 10M, with 2 being Fifa and 2 being CoD. The other 2 are GTA 5 and Uncharted 4, which just made it (10.00M, and still marked as Uncharted (PS4) on the chart)

While probably a couple more made it, PS4 also has 5 times the Userbase and had 4 times as long to get there compared to the Switch, all while the Switch already has 3 games about to  make that jump.



I think 20+ million is possible for Smash if all is done correctly.



Tag:I'm not bias towards Nintendo. You just think that way (Admin note - it's "biased".  Not "bias")
(killeryoshis note - Who put that there ?)
Switch is 9th generation. Everyone else is playing on last gen systems!

I agree. Just a small correction: MK8D will reach 10m next quarter and BotW will hit it by September in the worst case (it shipped 1.8m this quarter, only needs 1.5m more to reach 10m).



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

If it gets anywhere near 15mil by years end (ship+digital) you can count on a possible 30mil (if switch gets close to 100mil lifetime)

 

Thats insane lol

The Wii had 10 games that sold above 10 million; given its insane software sales thus far, I think Switch has a pretty good chance of beating that.

Odyssey is already there, MK8 and BOTW are a lock, Splatoon 2 very likely as well, then there's Smash, Animal Crossing, 2D Mario, Pokemon...



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

It also has a lot of games that are multiplatform, with XBox eating some sales.   And, while it's not a 10 million seller, given how badly vgc is undertracking games like Horizon Zero Dawn, you have to wonder how many games are at or near PS4 only totals that high, but not tracked properly.
