All you guys talking about Smash have no idea how insane the game is gonna be.

When i say insane, i mean is gonna destroy every expectations. Since this is NPD and we talk about US, you can easy expect a bigger first month than Halo 3.

Man you been on the hyperbole  the whole year, what happened to the switch doubling ps4/xbox one sales combined? another colossal   failed prediction incoming. Yes i'm gonna laugh when your prediction of 4 million sales switch sold during the holiday it will only be 2.5, and smash only only does around 2 million.

Alright this is just something i never said lol

Don't worry yes, i overestimated Switch 2018 sales it's silly to say i didn't, but i just didn't expect the line up of the year to be so weak, besides after all i was expecting 20 million switch this year and i still expect very close results to that, but anyway, back to the argument, i saw what are your predictions for Smash Ultimate, and well just wait 43 days to see how close they're gonna be.

If it's first month in USA alone is 2.6-3.3m, globally it's probably around 8m already.

Over 20m lifetime? If Smash is scared it's not scared enough.

Why should it? You're saying as if Smash won't have legs during its LT or something. Smash will be fine, whether it be 12-20 million sold. That's more than any fighting game could ever dream of, let alone having the kind of roster Smash Bros. Ultimate will have.

So close to Spiderman numbers? :P Then you have legs to consider moving forward.

That's what I like to see. Risky predictions in both directions. Keep fighting, guys!



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

Just to remind you on two bets we have, you said that Switch will sell below 3m in US in November and December combined, and that Switch will sell less than 2m in December alone.

I just saw a comment here that said that it's laughable to think that Spiderman or God of War will sell more than Smash, and that Smash will sell more than them combined. I made that comment because that Smash>Spiderman+GoW was quite amusing.
