Which will sell more, GoW or Labo? I want to root for the underdog

I'm willing to bet there's 10x more copies of GoW then Labo at least in the west so Labo doesnt have a chance.

The only thing I'll say is people should remember that Monday will not represent "Labo failing" in the UK.

Its not out here until the 27th

I think GoW will initially do better but in the long term, Labo overtakes it.

God of War is gonna sell insanely well. Review scores are through the roof. I LOVED the first God of War game, and I do have a PS4 (somewhere...in a closet lol), but I just can't seem to muster up the excitement to get this one. I don't know - I'd probably get really into it if I just unburied my system and ordered the game, but I can't be bothered right now.

I see GoW selling upwards of 10 million copies. I dont see Labo coming even close to that.

I kind of doubt Labo will sell even close to GoW. Especially considering the niches they are aiming, GoW is much, much more mainstream, and I think the latest entry really seems to hit well with tons of people too.

(Not to count that initial impression doesn't help matters with one being traditional game that got massive amount of good reviews, while Labo is uh... something).

Liking Labo is all good and well (I like it to be honest), but to be real, it won't ever come close to GoW I think.

It depends if Labo actually becomes huge. God of War is more likely to hit that gamer sweetspot, but if Labo spreads like wildfire then it can very well outsell God of War.

I mean Labo is cool and all, but God of War has gotten insane reviews all around. No way Labo can compete with that.

Just a geek that likes video games, and spends to much time playing Smash Bros. and Fortnite.

I just don't see why we're comparing a AAA action game to a cardboard construction kit...

Because they released on the same day, and according to the rules of the internet must battle.

The userbase of the PS4 is much higher than the Switch's userbase. GoW is a mainstream game and Labo is for a certain group of people. So don't expect that the sales of Labo will compete with GoW.

I am curious about the sales of Labo and if it does increase the HW sales of the Switch. Honestly, I don't think that Labo will be a huge hit. But I really like the concept and the Garage mode is infinite. I am curious about the YouTube uploads these week from people's creation.

Now that Labo is out in the US and Japan, it is time for a Pokemon Direct (next week?).

You know, i had prayed at my nearest Chinese temple for a Great sales of Nintendo LABO this morning. Let's pray for the Best of Nintendo LABO.

My Top 5 games :
1. Dance Dance Revolution series (10 / 10)
2. The Sims series (9 / 10)
3. Portal Knights Switch (9 / 10)
4. Animal Crossing New Leaf 3DS (9 / 10)
5. ARMS (8 / 10)

The thing about Labo people are forgetting is that there can very well be other kits in the way. So overall it can sell above like 95% of games this generation if you count all the kits as one game.

Who knows, I'm just interested in the sales numbers to see how much legs it'll have.

I think anything over a million will be a success. Who knows what Japan will do with the sales of Labo.

Not a chance in heck will labo outsell GoW. After the initial first buyers though of Labo I think it sales will plummet like a rock for its additional packs since the Internet and everyone will just post the blueprints for free.

Getting the excuses in early I see NDF.

“Labo only sold badly because it didn’t come with all DLC”

“Labo only sold badly because it wasn’t advertised”

“Labo only sold badly because the world wasn’t ready for it”

“Labo only sold badly because no shops stocked it”

“Labo only sold badly because Sony paid the government to suppress it”

“Labo only sold badly because it’s not actually been released yet”
