Wut

My argument wasn't even based around that xD Literally all I was mentioning was that Sun and Moons' legs were cut short, and the same will happen with Pokemon here (where Sword and Shield could easily sell 22+ million, but won't because of another game soon after). 

The argument isn't that alone will make Animal Crossing sell better. The argument is that Animal Crossing will already see a massive increase in sales similar to Mario/Zelda/Splatoon, AND the fact that Sword and Shield will get a successor soon after (even if it isn't a direct sequel) will make Animal Crossing win. 

Well maybe you should explain yourself better next time you went from saying that a new game will cut legs short then in the next sentence said AC will sell more. The logical conclusion is that you were saying AC will seller better as a direct result of Pokemon getting a new game in 1-2 years since you didnt actually give any reasons why AC will sell more.

Yeah, you're right My bad

Hehe no prob, I'm just bored and needed something to nitpick

Of Nintendo's two flagship dreadnoughts of the 2019 sales war, which do you think will sell more lifetime, and why?

Well what about you? What do you think? Do you think there's a chance that Animal Crossing will beat a mainline Pokemon entry, and the first one with a home console experience at that?



short term: Pokemon, im talking first few weeks, it will sell way more

long term though over both titles life times, Animal Crossing will outsell Pokemon

Pokemon, and I never bought a pokemon game.

While animal crossing will have nice growth in the west, it will not surpass Pokémon. Doesn’t matter when the next PKMN title is release

Makes sense, with Pokemon getting a new game sooner than later and AC only seeing the one release this generation making it an evergreen title



Of course Pokémon will sell more. Duh.

My first impulse was that it has a chance if Sword/Shield's legs are cut off by a followup in 2020/2021 while AC continues to have evergreen legs for years to come. After checking the figures though, I dunno. Honestly I was just bored out of my mind when I posted this thread, I can't believe how dull VGC is these days.



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

I know what you mean. We need to do something to liven this place up. It had so much going on back in the day. I remember when we had regular Mafia threads, elimination threads, the occasional roleplay thread, sales and metacritic prediction leagues for every game and system and year, threads for arranging meet ups and parties for online play for various games, all kinds of threads analyzing all kinds of data from various angles, and participatory threads of all sorts, all going on at once, all the time. All of that stuff still happens, but it's fewer and farther between with mostly empty, pointless discussions like this one most days. I think part of the problem is that we've lost a lot of creative contributors that were willing to put in the time and effort to create some of our best stuff. I know what I blame for that, but I don't feel like starting anything here. Suffice to say I think they were driven away.
