Tropico 4 to win 2011. You heard it here first.

Biglet2299d ago

Ridiculous. How stupid are you? Tropico 4?! That won't even do a tenth of the sales of Skyrim, let along MW3. What, exactly, do you base that statement on, DaveX360? Your previous experiences of the obviously best-selling within the Tropico-fanboy-crowd series? You really ought to back that up with some facts boyo, because you're going to make yourself look like a real game n00b come November time, saying things like that. Honestly, some people really detract from the otherwise profound intellectual discourse on this site.

... I'm pretty sure it was sarcasm... ;)

"Honestly, some people really detract from the otherwise profound intellectual discourse on this site."

Agreed, especially the types that can't seem to recognize humor and sarcasm.

Bleach2299d ago

lol what an idiot, he was being sarcastic.

DeadIIIRed2299d ago

Haha "profound intellectual discourse on this site." *Clicks the link to find a picture of a woman slapping a man with a large dildo.

I'm with DaveX360. Tropico 4 is going to poop all over MW3 sales-wise. It's all anyone's talking about.

Chocoboh2299d ago

Tropico 4? I only heard about it yesterday and I've preordered 10 copies!

AKS2299d ago

The momentum has been building for quite some time. We all knew that the holiday season is the biggest for gaming. However, we had no conscious awareness of which game would in fact emerge from the pack dominate the charts. Now that the holiday season is nearly upon us, it's becoming quite clear that entity will be Tropico 4. In hindsight, it seems so obvious this would be the case.

@AKS

Agreed, especially the types that can't seem to recognize blatantly obvious sarcastic replies to the sarcasm.

tarbis2299d ago

And you expect us to believe that, like how you believed DaveX360? XD

rjdofu2298d ago

Yes, it was soooooooooooo blatantly oblivious.

Optical_Matrix2299d ago (Edited 2299d ago )

I kind of agree with the article. This year has been pretty sparse for game releases up until Q4. Most people can;t even afford the amount of games that are coming out. Between buying PS3,360, Wii and 3DS games I'm gonna have to spend £360 over the next 3-4 months just on games lol I;m looking forward to it, but it's also the time factor...how am I going to enjoy Disgaea 4 and Battlefield 3 for a while, when Uncharted 3, Skyward Sword, Skyrim and Super Mario 3D Land come out only a week or so afterwards?

We'll see what happens. But I think there some studio's should have aimed for a summer release. They probably would have sold more considering summer is the one time the general consumer has the most money to spend on themselves. That's just my opinion though.

@Biglet, calm down breh XD I think he was joking

MW3, Skyrim, and U3 will all do big numbers in their own way. As much fun as we are having with Tropico 4, it's really not going to do much to dent the sales of those other games.

Bladesfist2299d ago (Edited 2299d ago )

U3 wont sell as much as BF3... Probably wont sell as much as arkham city. My guess is it will go MW3 - BF3 - Skyrim - Batman AA - Rage - U3. I base this on sales charts for ps3 exclusives but I know that U3 is a much better game than mw3.

EDIT:According to amazon fifa 12 will be a best seller with the pc version of bf3 coming second.

KonaBro2299d ago

a regular comment and twist it. I never said that U3 was going to do MW3 or BF3 numbers. That's just being ridiculous. However, for it being a PS3 exclusive, it will do big numbers relative to that fact. Also Amazon is not a good indicator of any games sales success be it for 360, PS3, or both.

Bladesfist2299d ago

I never twisted your comment. I could say any game will sell well in there own way. I just stated that U3 wont do big numbers.

Ju2299d ago (Edited 2299d ago )

Why not? I think it will do as UC2 which sold about 5M. How is that not a big number?

Batman AA sold 2.7 on PS3, combined with 360 4.8M. I am pretty sure UC2 outsold AA. BC sold 5.3 on both, 2.5 on PS3.

BF3 will be huge, but there are quite some big hitters coming for the PS3. I would even think R3 will be huge.

Bladesfist2299d ago

Batman AA sold 5.07m copies and uncharted sold 4.7m copies if you look at vgchartz. Whats your source?
