That is insane, right? I mean I knew the game was going to be a huge deal and likely make tons of sales since it was meant to be the game of the year but knowing they sold over 8 million in preorders alone is impressive. I am guessing it reaches over 10 million within the first week.
It will probably hit 15 million before the year is over. A lot of people will be getting the game for a Christmas gift for someone too. I feel like this game can use some work (it is a bit buggy out the gate) but I hope that it doesn’t result in people wanting refunds.
So do these numbers drop in the event that the game is mass-refunded? I know several people who are or already have gotten refunds for it. Bad news bears if this counts.
There was so much hype built up around this game that this hardly surprises me. I am wondering the same thing as Bluue now though. Considering the console had issues and a lot of people complained and got refunded, it makes me wonder if it will effect sales or stats.
I wonder with everything that went wrong with the game, if it will stand a chance at being game of the year next year. I guess this really depends on what they do from this point forward. There have not been great things being said about the game.
