This is above 5 million between both
versions now, according to Nintendo. Wii
U version was last updated by them at
1.08, so..yeah. Already above 5 mill
before august, very nice. :)

He was already
here a few months ago trying to say that
Horizon "destroyed" Zelda somehow,
which was obviously never true. He's
just trying to see what he wants to see
instead of what's actually there. And
yeah it's real dumb how for some people
instead of being glad that both games
did great financially and critically
instead they must try to argue about it.

StreaK, just give up man. It's like
what they say about video game
difficulty. The floor for Horizon is
very good, but it's ceiling is very
low. The floor for BOTW is very high,
and so is it's ceiling. It's potential
sales could be 11+ million. I don't
think anyone could say that for Horizon.
But this whole comparison is stupid. We
should just be happy that two amazing,
experimental games were able to please
such large audiences. Horizon is not a
game to scoff at.
StreaK (on 12 July 2017)
Yeah, but Horizon has like half more
sales from digital which I'm sure is
far more than Zelda's. Horizon has a
HUGE digital sale rate.
