We’re just a little more than a week from the massively anticipated release of Bloodborne, and the hype is most definitely easy to feel, even in Akihabara.
My hype for this game is over 9000!!
Well obviously, the damn thing is busted.
I can see this selling a million worldwide first two weeks easy.
I'm sure it will sell well, but it is still a niche game and a ps4 exclusive which narrows the pool quite a bit. But I hope it does great, souls games should be experienced by as many gamers as possible.They are one of a kind.
It isn't nearly as niche anymore and Sony knows this which is why they are helping develop the game with From Soft. So many people are salivating over this game and it has been in the spotlight for people to see and is getting major hype behind it. This is probably going to be one of the greatest games ever made and I have full faith in From Soft and Miyazaki to deliver. Praise the moon.
Being a PS4 exclusive hurts it? being a WiiU exclusive or X1 exclusive would hurt it more since those 2 combined have sold about as much as the PS4 has. I know it could sell a lot more if it was mulitplatform, but believe me it will sell like hot cakes.
A million worldwide by March's end may be a stretch, but I can definately see it doing over 700k and probably finishing the year above 2m. I'm guessing it will launch to 300k+ in US, 100k+ in Japan, and 300k+ in EU. If reviews and word of mouth are good (I've no doubt they will be), this game will sell well for a very long time. LTD should sneak up on 3m if not clear it.
A million by end of week indeed. Put it in stone. This game is going to explode.
Dark Souls 2 launched earlier in March than Bloodborne on multiple platforms and sold roughly 1.5m. Ignoring the 140m or so install base difference, 1m in Bloodborne's launch month is hardly a given. It will probably sell better in Japan than I predicted, maybe 200k+, but that would change my prediction to 800k. It will be close, but I'm taking the under.
I havent payed $60 for a game since GTAV on PS4. I hope to be the first in line at WalMart for this.
That poster has been up for quite a while actually. Since at least the last week of February. I love that store as well. If you can't find the game you are looking for there you probably won't find it. On topic, this game is going to sell a bunch. And it is going to be awesome!
1 Million on it's 1st Day out in the USA, UK & JAPAN
Watch PS4 sales sky rocket after this comes out, Microsoft has no answer for this. Best games are only on PS4.
Best games are on steam. Sony is the lesser of two evils in the console race.
My brother is living in Tokyo at this moment and he says that Bloodborne is eagerly awaited and there is a buzz about this game, a lot more so than others in the past. Retailers and stores like like SofMap are pushing Bloodborne heavily.
