No, that's simply too much.

The game is extraordinarily large because of the size of its gameplay space, but it's not going to be bigger than games like Uncharted 4, or at least I don't foresee it being unless it's given a really big push by Sony, or word of mouth propels it.

This game is well known about by casuals, don't underestimate this title. It won't outsell Uncharted 4, but it will do extremely well.

This game has the potential to be like the world in "Ready Player One".

Anyone who hasn't read the book, please do. It's geeky and a good read.

GamerGT1051d ago

It will have legs for days.

I don't know, this game very well could outsell Uncharted 4.

Not saying one is better or lessor or anything like that, merely factor that its an open world exporable title that lets you fly in space....

Its on both PC and PS4, for all we know this game can have LBP or MineCraft like legs. Little Big Planet 1 moved almost 6 million units on PS3.

Uncharted 2 and 3 moved around 6 to 7 million units, but Uncharted 4 isn't releasing on PC day and date or anything of the sort.

Don't sleep on titles like No Man Sky, this game very well could do something crazy like 10 plus million units if not more ,who knows.

Uncharted 4 likely will move lots of units beyond Uncharted 3, I'm guessing over 10 million.

I'm probably one of the biggest NMS fan out there, my hype level for this game is huge. But saying that, there are still games like FFXV, Uncharted 4, Horizon Zero Dawn, Gears 4 etc etc, that wil be very big releases this year.

As far as space sims go, I agree that NMS will no doubt be the biggest space sim released this year... now that Mass Effect Andromeda has been delayed to next year 8)

Sometimes games just catch on, look at Minecraft or Rocket League, they outsell alot of AAA titles. No Man's Sky might be next in line. This game is already getting attention on prime time media outlets, not just gaming sites.

What a ****ing year though right!?

GamerGT1051d ago

My anticipation for NMS is out of this universe lol. I lose sleep watching YouTube videos over it. Must have now.

Overload1052d ago

It definitely one of them. I expect it to get mixed reviews, but sell very well.

Alot of my casual gamer friends are super interested in this game, I think it will surprise alot of people just how well it does.

MasterCornholio1051d ago (Edited 1051d ago )

I'm expecting another situation like Quantum Break except in this case no one is expecting it to be GOTY material.

I'm predicting a meta of 7 and above.

P.S This is just my opinion.


Yeah I'm guessing that as well. Its going to be a love it or hate it kind of game. Hopefully it doesn't have any flaws that will ruin the experience for me. The game is extremely ambitious and it appears that it's worth playing.

Overload1051d ago

Yeah, it think it will be mid 7s as an average.

It definitely not a game for everyone. Some will love it, some will hate it.

Gees cant you guys ever talk about a game without mentioning subjective 'scores'
I know its kinda common in gaming communities on the internet but still, most people I know dont care about review scores.
I cant wait for many games this year but why on earth I would even start thinking about their possible scores is beyond me.

SaveFerris1052d ago

With up to 18 quintillion possible worlds, it has to be the 'Biggest' game of 2016.

Goldby1051d ago

i saw what you did ther, using quotations like its your day off ;)

MasterCornholio1051d ago (Edited 1051d ago )

I'd argue that Uncharted 4 will be bigger.

But as in largest game well is agree with that.

Master Yoda: Biggest Game, Hmmmm? Overexaggeration that is.
