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.

Lmao, that would be YOU actually.

Didn't SPM just basically tie it? What was Halo 3 back then? Wasn't it like 3.3 Million in the US alone?

It didn't xD

The "between 2.6m to 3.3m estimate" comes from the fact that Benji, an insidier, said that the launch of Spiderman was closer to Halo 3 (3.3 million) than God of War (1.9 million) there you get the 2.6 million as minimum... it can't be 3.3 million tho, it has to be less than that.

Alright, let's talk about interesting things.
Super Smash Bros Brawl sold 2.7 million units back in March 2008. At that time Wii had an install base of 8.08 million units.
Right now Switch is over 7.11 million units in the US, and iwith November+October, there is no way Switch won't have a bigger install base during Ultimate launch.

To this, add the fact that most Nintendo series had a very big boost in performance, just look at Odyssey and Breath of the Wild, AND, the hype for Ultimate looks by far bigger than any others Smash games at launch.

Oh, and of course, 5 weeks of December VS 5 weeks of March...

It's absolutely insane to expect Ultimate to sell less than the 2.7 million Brawl did at launch.

Yeah, I think we talking about 3m+ for first month, also there couple of points why Ultimate will great, game has huge hype, its launching at beginning of month, and in easily most biggest month of year for Nintendo.

If Mario Odyssey did 900k in the short time span it did, on such a small install base, Smash will destroy 2 million in December.

The only thing that could affect it is the bundle. IDK if the digital codes are counted, and if they are they'll be counted as sales in November??? Idk. But yeah other then that it should smash 2.2m NPD.

Nintendo e Shop codes aren't counted in the NPD either way, I'm sure Nintendo will update the full sales numbers in a press release

it's not insane at all. you are comparing it with brawl, which released over a decade ago, and didn't have mario kart, or pokemon  as competition, and it was insanely hot wii. a better comparison would be 3ds/wiiu sales combined for the months released and they don't even come close.

as from the cliff thing, which admit ok, by ryan has been going about how switch would destroy ps4 for a long time, he even made the comment in JAN, he wouldn't b surprised if it outsold xb/ps4 combined. he even lost a bet to me, even with a extra week of sales factored in for switch.

Umm Smash Bros Brawl and Mario Kart Wii released less than 2 months apart vs Mario Kart Deluxe & Smash Bros Ultimate releasing over 1.5 years apart.........also when have these games ever been known to compete against each other? I'll answer that for you, never.
