Not to me. I have been bad sometimes, so I have deserved a few critics and 1 banishment.

But I remember for sure, when a guy here proposed the theory that BotW could oversale Mario Odysee in the long term. He has been mocked by so many here...I was shocked to see how mean was people against him, most of the others in front of him did not have arguments. I have been in this situation already here, facing a group of people without argument, pretending that mine was not. At the end I could not resist to massively insult them, and I got banished.

Well it appears that the theory of this guy was not so stupid when we objectively see the sales numbers of Mario and Zelda these last few weeks.

Zelda won't probably make it until the number of Mario I believe even in 6 years from now, but its theory about longer legs for Zelda with a potential catching up, was not so stupid after all.

So if you read me dude, I just wanted to tell you that on this day, when I was reading your topic.....Well..I was sure that you were wrong ofcourse but here is a form of "partial apologize" with this message.

It was my thread that you are referring to.  Thank you for apologizing.  That is very big of you.

To be fair, I only like making bold predictions.  I really am confident that the predictions will come true, but to me it's not really bold unless a few people think you are nuts.  So if you are one of the people who thought I was nuts then I understand.

No I did not think you were nuts, the idea was pertinent, but I was still sure that you were wrong, and I still believe it today. Zelda will never catch up the gap with only 6-7000 units more per week even during 6 years



Current PB on Secret of Mana remake : 2h27 (2nd)
Strongest worldwide achievement on TGM : 1st European S13 rank
Fastest TGM3 MASTER in Europe : rank Master V in 5min10
Western record on TGM3 EASY : 1484

I was including Switch + Wii U together for my BotW prediction.  When I checked the reported numbers last (Mar. 31, 2018) Zelda was only about 0.5m behind Mario.  So if it sells 6000 per week for 6 years that is 6000*52*6 = 1.872m.  That is more than enough to catch Mario and it isn't counting increased sales from holidays either.

I remember that I read that thread, but I didn't comment in it. I didn't disagree with the prediction because it's a possible and realistic outcome, but your reasoning with a multiplier of 2.5 was and is bad, because it's so arbitrary and not backed up by anything other than it seeming to be right to you.

I checked my own special thread to see how the shipment numbers have developed for both games in 2018.

Breath of the Wild has shipped 1.78m and 0.84m in the first two quarters of calendar year 2018.
Super Mario Odyssey has shipped 1.34m and 0.76m.

The bigger discrepancy of Q1 can be easily explained by slight overshipping of Super Mario Odyssey during its launch quarter, so Q2 should be considered more representative and the upcoming financial report on October 30th should confirm that. Things will probably develop in line with your prediction that it won't happen fast, but that it will happen. I think you'll be off on 16m at most for Super Mario Odyssey though, but that was more of a secondary part in your prediction, and predictions rarely play out 100% correct.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

I don't believe in apologies. You can admit you were wrong about something but apologising is too much.

EDIT : after reading again the topic mentionned, people was not that bad actually. I believe that my brain had a little schizophrenic transformation after months, I have only remembered the very few mean messages.

People in this community CAN apologize!

Well done.  That thread was pretty tame, actually.  I've definitely seen far worse.  It was a crazy prediction, but not one without a little bit of support by the initial sales of the Switch and the general response to BotW.  But overall the numbers regarding this battle have certainly not been cast in stone.
