It's going to have to beat Wii Sports and Wii Fit to have that distinction.

Not only does it have to sell huge early, but it needs to have some serious legs inorder to beat those 2.

who approved this? better give them one year suspension for doing so!

Syronicus3723d ago

This game will be the most sold game this year, that is for sure. As for most sold ever... That is to be seen. I know I bought two copies and that is all that matters to me. I have two PS3's so it's to be expected.

"I know I bought two copies and that is all that matters to me. I have two PS3's so it's to be expected"

Fools and money. Seriously, what a waste to buy the same game twice.

SprSynJn3723d ago

No more than spending money on two game systems in one generation.

Syronicus3723d ago (Edited 3723d ago )

But it sounds more foolish to me to make a general assumption about somebody that would buy two copies of a game. You guys sound bitter and reading your post history I see one of you is a Modern Warfare hater...

*clicks ignore*

nycredude3723d ago

I have no doubts it will sell massive amounts but to be honest I think it's the most overated POS ever next to GTA4.

COD4.5 and Cod4 was better. Last gen graphics, 2d effects, no story, no charm, no length, and broken mp. It a good game but completely play out and the wow factor is gone. Lots of explosions but just boring as hell.

Here's the top 5:

1. Wii Play (Wii – 24.43 million)
2. Wii Fit (Wii – 22.5 million)
3. Nintendogs (DS – 22.27 million, all five versions combined)
4. Pokémon Red, Blue, and Green (Game Boy – 20.08 million approximately: 10.23 million in Japan,[45] 9.85 million in US)
5. New Super Mario Bros. (DS – 19.94 million)

Good luck with that.

lol Top 5.. *smirks* Ninten-owned.

masterg3723d ago

Super Mario 64 sold over 40 million.

ReBurn3723d ago

Um, masterg? N64 didn't even sell 40 million consoles. Super Mario 64 sold less than 12 million copies.

calis3723d ago

How about the original Mario that sold like 140 million.

Christopher3723d ago

Yeah, that list is only of the releases from this gen. Heck, Sims and Myst would beat most of those games on the PC, let alone some of the classic N64 and SNES games.
