I don't think XV will do XIII-2 numbers and beside if we go by Comgent, we see the game barely gaining any pre-orders. Otherwise I don't get the point of the post, since it was more about the pre-order situation.
I expect FFXV to open between 800k to 1 million and have a LTD of more than 1.2 million. Yes, this will be a drop of course, but still pretty good result for the most controversial entry in the series so far.
I found funny your "Comgnet is no longer relevant" comment because it means that it was relevant before and I wanted to know when was that
And finally to check your "nothing drastic" meaning (maybe you were expecting a 1.5-1.7 million LTD). Because dropping 700.000 units for me it's a drastic drop so we'll agree to disagree here.
And the most controversial entry in the series? I suppose you weren't here when Final Fantasy XI was announced and released. Or the first release for Final Fantasy XIV...
