    I'm gonna say between 250,000 and 500,000. On the closer side of 250k so thats where my vote will be

    I don't know, but I know that once that first Beta goes live and we're allowed to talk about the cash shop, it'll get more people buying. For now I'll put the number at 250k considering how many people signed up for the beta.

     

    Did anyone else get to see the cash shop changes before the page went down? Not sure if it was an accidental leak or if they're just having web issues again (considering the forum isn't working, it's hard to tell) but I won't say anything just to be safe *cough* itsonredditgoogleit *cough* but it should make a lot of "I won't buy cuz of cash shop" people happy.

    Well to say a lot without saying anything, i did, and it looked like the original leaked nda protected picture that went around. The only thing i actually thought when i saw it was "And the threads had just died down about the CS and moved on to complaining about the purchase price. Well back to square one."

    Anyway, more on to topic. I would say 1 in 4 of the beta sign ups so 250k+  a few. I am sure after this week is over Anet will announce numbers or something.

    I'm sorry but the only one saying anything about the second coming is you. Fans of a game accept its flaws and strengths.

    Make that 3 in 4 of the beta signups and then some more that forgot to sign up for the beta, which makes about 800k

    Ima say between 50 and 100k.  Not to many people are willing to pony up the cash just to play a beta.

    I'm guessing its about 300k

    I'm going to go way overboard on hype and say Aleph-ω.

  • QuenchsterQuenchster Monroe, MIMember Posts: 450

    Not everybody was able to purchase the product through their retailer of choice yet. image

    I'm going to guess 250k at max. If not, then it is probably under.

  • aesperusaesperus Hamshire, NVMember Posts: 5,135 Uncommon

    Honestly, I think the number is somewhere around ~300k.

    There were a lot of problems with their payment form, not to mention that many of the accepted retails still don't have the pre-purchase listed in their stores yet. This alone creates a lot of barriers for people.

    Furthermore, I know there are a lot of people were are either still very cautious (about any new MMO), sitting on the fence, or uncomfortable with paying upfront for this game. Can't say that I blame them.

    How many moms basements exist in the the US and Europe?

  • NeoZcar2NeoZcar2 Roanoke, TXMember Posts: 136

    I voted 750k simply because I know alot of retailers are claiming they sold out the allotment of serial prepurchases they had, and because the sheer volume of prepurchses crashed the Guildwars2 purchase sight for over an hour. Gonna go with well over a million by the end of the week.

  • Nadya3Nadya3 MadridMember Posts: 348

    i no longer preorder games.

    im very but very cautious about GW2 , so probably gonna wait 2 or 4 weeks after it gets released  before buying, or not buying.

    you are wise.

    i've wasted alot of money, preordering, buying games.  that were a total let down.  or simply a boredom paradise 2 month after.

  • Eir_SEir_S Argyle, NYMember Posts: 4,623 Uncommon

    To my knowledge this is also the first game I've preordered.  I won't lie, a lot of it was because the promise of the betas, and if I'm any indication, they're going to sell a lot more than if they had just put it up for pre-order.

  • ZeroxinZeroxin LondonMember Posts: 2,501 Uncommon

    The OP is biased! Where is my over 9000 selection?!!!!! I demand a remake of this poll!

     

    On a more serious note, I think they sold 50k copies. Mostly because not a lot of people are going to buy the game before it's got a release date.

    This is not a game.

  • sassoonsssassoonss Monroe Town Patricia Palace, NYMember Posts: 1,110 Uncommon

    500K+ easily

  • laxika91laxika91 VonyarcvashegyMember Posts: 50

    800k-1m at least in my opinion. All prepurche box sold tomorrow morning here in Hungary under a hour. I wanted to buy one, but all sold. I got mine today online straight from ANet.
