I think it's possible for both system. Fable II sold well over 3million on xbox 360. With pc, the sales together of Fable III could be up to 8million.

But really, 5 million on xbox? It needs to be advertised loads.

I dont think it will be able to. Any game coming out in between Halo Reach and Call of Duty is going to have a hard time.

That means some bundling will be done to beef up the sales.

Yup, games in that time zone will be crushed by Call of Duty and Reach.

The only game in between Halo Reach and Black Ops will be GT5. And thats because there are so many loyal fans and its not in the same genre.

It won't sell 5 million unless it gets bundling or something, but it's doing pretty good considering it's still 12 weeks from launch. It'll probably sell better than Fable II did at launch. It's not going to be overshadowed by Reach and Cod, it is the third biggest 360 exclusive franchise.

And I remember reading an issue of OXM a few months ago where people voted for their most looked forward to game. First was Reach, Second was Gears 3, and the third was Fable III.

Yep I agree.

I'm still unsure that it will outsell Reach...

It's possible though.

Funny that you would say that, MLD, especially when you said that you praise games "that sold well on their own turf, that were hardly bundled at all."

Console war and just sales in general are an entirely different matter. Mlds just saying that's a way Molyneux can get fable to reach it's target easier.

correct

the average WRPG sells 2-3 million this gen based on Mass Effect, Fallout, Oblivion, and Fable 2 sales.

Fable 3 will meet that expectation. But to sell 5 million then yes bundling will be necessary.


But in regards to your comment, there is nothing wrong with a game selling say 5 million plus on its own and THEN being bundled.............compared to say MGS4, or Killzone 2...........which were bundled from DAY 1.

well if Fable 2 had that label (and it did), then Fable 3 is sure to have part rpg elements....which it does.

Its a adventure WRPG i believe if you want to get technical.
