Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is crushing it's competition becoming the best-selling video game on Amazon in just one short day!
This will probably end up like Mario Oydessey where in a month or two Nintendo will announce the game sold over 8 million.
Fully deserved. Everything about this game oozes class.
I think 20+ people don't like that another company can make fantastic games for systems they don't use, judging by the dislikes.
wow.. in one day.
Title is deceptive...
Surprisingly true... But when the list has Mario Party at higher place than GoW, I can understand why you'd say so :p
Title is a lie, it's not the years best selling game it's just selling really well.
No, it is the top seller on Amazon.
@ michellelynn, you dont know how Amazon best sellers list works. Title says it's already this year's best selling video game. For context, God of war sold 5 million in one month, it has passed 9 million copies sold by now. Smash Bros was launched on the 7th, if that game sold 9 million copies by now it'd be the best selling game of all time by a long shot. As of August the switch almost sold 20 million, let's just say that by now they are at 23 million that means almost half of the people that own a switch would have had to purchase the game. It just doesn't make sense. Amazon takes what is best selling right now and puts it on the list. It's not a list for the best sellers of the year as this list is meant to show what's hot right now. So saying "no, it is the top seller on Amazon" is a false statement if you are attempting to refute my statement you are wrong and have failed horribly. I hope you are now enlightened by Amazon's best sellers list not being a cumulative ranking over the course of the year, for future reference.
Oof blops 4
Even more than Red Dead Redemption 2? That's insane.
Probably going to boost console sales as well. Can't count how times I've seen people say they're waiting for Smash to pick up a Switch.
It's a clickbait title. This isn't about total sales which obviously is not going to outsell RDR2. It's in the list of top sales, where pretty much every new AAA game is on release
Congrats to Nintendo
I'm impressed with the amount of things they've put into the game. I don't ever say it's worth it to pick up a console just for one game but i can believe it for smash Bros.
Every AAA game company/publisher should look at Smash as the example for what you should do for a full-release. Pack in as much content as you can, THEN once you're all done and polished it up, figure out your DLC options. Plenty of games lose out on sales because people know that they have to pay $60 at launch, $30 for a season pass, $30 for another season pass, and any other microsactions if the game is locked to that system, just to get all the content a game has to offer that should have been in the game at launch.. Plus, if you wait long enough, you'll get a "Complete Edition".
Tried 2 other games in the series, never really understood the fuss.. same with Pokemon. But at least i learned just because something is popular doesn't mean I'm also going to like it.
I didn’t like the last Smash on the 3DS/Wii U as well. But there is something different in Smash Ultimate that keep me going. Maybe it is the single player portion of the game, which is very meaty this time around.
World of Light mode and spirits are awesome!!!
I barely played smash wii u single player, but I’m loving Ultimate. There’s finally a reason to play beacuse of the unlockables and the spirit mode. It’s also way more balanced than before and certain characters are vastly improved. Not to mention that online battles are more fun now that you can’t just constantly dodge-roll around the stage and not get punished for it.
Same. I want to like Nintendo games, because I did when I was a kid, they're just boring to me now, unfortunately.
It outsold Spidy and RDR2 (on Amazon)? Damn. Next week’s Media Crate sale is gonna be crazy.
It didn't outsell rdr2
Smash is just a ton of fun. Always has been. I don't play much Nintendo these days, but it's nice to see they're still thriving. I'll definitely play this at a friend's.
Wait, it sold more than the Switch? What am I missing? https://www.amazon.com/gp/b...
Its exactly how it is. Anything related to video games is listed. Smash outsold everything. Incluing the switch. Usually the psn and xbox cards always beat new games in this list lol
How hard is it to understand they talking about this year If amazon only sold 2 million switch from January to December But sold 4 million smash bros games Then yes the games will outsell the system, don't forget other people have the system already from.the year before
Fantastic news. Good for Smash
@SierraGuy wrong. Octopath, MP, Pokemon Let's Go, TSA, Mario U, Xenoblade, Mario and Rabbids, etc., so yeah.
