Based on their pre-order figures GAME UK have predicted that Fallout 4 will sell more than 20 million units.
Not really a surprise given the fanfare of the game, but knowing that this will make mainstream news will help people continue to realize how vital video games are to the economy. Win-win.
I bet Microsoft are reeling that Fallout was announced with a surprise release date of November. It means TR will now sell even less than it would have anyway by making it xbox holiday exclusive.
Yea when I see a bunch posts by my casual gamer friends on Facebook then I know it will sell well.
This is the one game i'm really looking forward to this year. Already pre-ordered and am looking forward to installing PC mods on my xbox one
Its possible although the 360/ps3 install base when Skyrim launched was far greater than xb1/ps4 currently.
Yep that's what I was thinking. 20mil would call for nearly 50% of current-gen console owners to buy it. Which seems a little .. ambitious.
Agreed. I love Fallout and bought the last 2 day 1 along with Skyrim, but just don't see Fallout doing those numbers as Fallout 3 didn't and I'm not really sure why Fallout 4 somehow would. The install base is smaller and honest, Fallout 4 is going against bigger heavy hitters this fall then Fallout 3 did in 2008 in my opinion. It will do great, but Skyrim or Elder Scrolls in general just has a larger fan base. I'm not even sure Fallout 3 did even half of the sales Skyrim did, Skyrim sold like 20 million units, Fallout 3 to my last memory did like 6 million or so. I don't even get where they are getting this from lol.
I can see that happening.
Sure, sure. And I hope it'll be less buggy.
I'm not sure about that with these install bases. I guarantee it'll be massive though. I guess it depends how much support it gets after launch. Mods on consoles will definitely help. And the user created bases. Oh, God. I can't wait!
I hope fallout trashes witcher 3 I predict ps4 version to be most commercially viable for the publisher
I like fallout but i think elder scrolls games are better. Maybe because i like fantasy RPGs more than post apocalyptic RPGs. You know i prefer swords and bows more than guns.
