I'm not going to make this into a big deal because there's far more important things in life going on but at the end of the day i make predictions when i want to and not to anybody elses time table. Sometimes i make predictions before/at the weekend and sometimes after, you're not the first poster who's tried to dismiss what i do and i'm sure you won't be the last. I call it the Michael Pachter effect, there's plenty of people who say he barely knows anything and they reckon they could do his job far better than he does because it's so 'easy', yet nobody has stepped up and actually done that.....go figure. Now shall we get back to discussing the actual sales of games? Here's a topic starter, does anybody think the new Yakuza game stands a good chance of breaking 400,000 week 1?....i do.
Wait a minute, do you think that posting random numbers makes you something special? Do you know how I call this? The ioi effect. From now on every time you claim in these threads that you have some mysterious secret source I 'll post the comgnet, eh secret source, preorder numbers you had given.

I don't understand why you're jumping all over the guy. He made his prediction, several people told him it was way too high, he turned out to be right. Why are you so angry about this?

HR sold okay.
Look's like SO4 is going to sell it's 150k out .
RE5 AE did good wonder how much it's going to get .
God Eater should reach half million next week , pretty good for a new IP.

It's not this particular ''prediction''. He has a history.

EDIT: And like I said before I have no problem with him making predictions as long as they are trully predictions, not estimates from online retailer sales.

So me making a prediction that was correct = me posting 'random numbers'? You're being very immature and you're displaying the behaviour of somebody with an inferiority complex by saying i think i'm 'something special' when i have never said that, ridiculous. Other posters are asking what your problem is and i think you should take a step back. If you really think you have a point then pm me instead of causing problems in this thread.

Just wondering, how old are you, if you want to say of course? I want to know if there is a point continuing this conversation or I'm talking to a 10 year old boy. When you brought up Pachter syndrome what did you wanted to show? As for other posters complaining I'm sure jcm doesn't know your or my posting history.

I really don't understand it, been lurking here for a long time now and every time doicare is correct the media create regulars try ripping him a new one. One of the more pathetic things I have seen in my life, predicting game sales is serious business I guess.

and a banned site
and extrapolated numbers from comgnet
and early Monday numbers

''Predictions'' after weekend are worthless.
Why mention the banned site, you saying they are actually correct? Not understanding your post, mentioning the magic number farm and all.

I'd imagine plenty of hungry new PS3 owners after Slim + Final Fantasy XIII. That would explain the Biohazard numbers.

If, as you say, you have been lurking here for a long time now you should understand this specific post.

doicare was instructed by duckroll to not post his preorder numbers anymore if he couldn't provide a source. The predictions should be fine, though.

However, there's a history with doicare in the MC threads which may make the fuse a little short where he's involved. :p

What about Resident Evil fans already on the system from RE5? I'd think that would be a bigger impact. If you were talking about another jRPG, then a FFXIII-specific audience may have more of an impact.

doicare is like the broken clock that is right twice a day, and damn happy about it.

Didn't sales surge after the slim redesign and price drop? That happened well after BH5 was old news.

I don't see people who dropped full price on the original double dipping on this, at least not in big numbers. Especially when all the DLC can be had for almost 1/4th the price.

I gotta ask, what's the origin of that image and how did it become a meme here?
I wanna know too
looks like I saw it in most of the sales charts here

anyways, nice number for RE5. quite a few PS3 titles there
how long is Friends Collection staying on top 10? Mario Kart DS / Animal Crossing DS compare?

Guys, these are informal sales predictions. Does it really matter, on both sides, whether or not someone is right?

When i was 10 years old i was playing dizzy the egg on the commodore 64, seeing as you're good with numbers you should be able to work out how old i am now. The bottom line is i made a simple prediction and it turned out to be very good, people were commenting on what a good prediction it was but you seemed very butt hurt by me getting praise so you created a post completely and utterly demeaning my prediction calling it worthless. You also seem to be very hung up on a set of data i was given that i then posted on this forum a long time ago which turned out to be taken from some other website i had never heard of before back then. Some how in your eyes that makes me a liar and every prediction i now post must be 'stolen' from somewhere else as well. Like i said i really think you should step back from this line of posting but if you still feel you need to discuss this any further please do it in pm's because otherwise this thread will quickly devolve.

Pretty good legs for SO4I.

It won't catch up with the 360 version, but it's still doing okay for a year old port with almost no bonus content.

It'll reach 120k and die, IMO.

If you would be compared to a comedy series I may have thougt the "Inspired by Chris Rock's life...as a kid." would be more fitting, buddy ^^

Yeah, how dare you guys question Mr. Incredible Predictor predictions, so full of predictions knowledge, so damn full of insider information to put his predictions to good use, with so damn full devotion to the mythological prediction beast known as Pachter in these cruel ages full of ignorant unable to see the greatness of the resurgence of the sacred idol in his new, Simpsons-avatar-powered, vessel.

Well all Chris1964 said was that predictions made after there is data available are not really predictions (which I believe he stated prior to the actual results being known). It was doicare that took offense to this and immediately started calling people out which is always gonna end badly.

Why bother to bring it up at all?

I think we're missing the forest for the trees.

I don't know enough to take sides, but doicare is the one requesting that his attackers take it to PM, so he gets automatic points with me. The thread is getting kind of annoying for those who don't care about whatever the issue is.

And I honestly don't see why guessing numbers is such a big deal, unless you're in Vegas, but maybe I'm the weird one here.

I was neutral before reading this post and yes, I really don't know too much of either of your posting history (especially him), but this post right here, this reaction... well it's kind of childish and honestly it's only helping his "inferiority" theory seem more true.

Two new chapters
One new mode
Four new playable characters
Four new costumes

It's also effectively a budget priced version of the original game.

Easy. Even ignoring rerelease status there are only about 16 better PS3 openings. "About" coming from whatever difference comparing this MC software number with my usual Famitsu numbers makes.
How does this compare to other re-releases of popular titles on the same platform as a percentage of first release total?

The problem with sales threads is a lot of the smartest posters are also prone to being dicks. Wait, that's the problem with this whole site.
