Soooooo.... way back. In the day. Before SWTOR came out... I suggested that while SWTOR will probably be the new MMORPG with the most subscriptions, I thought that GW2 had a good chance of beating it in total box sales.
Some people seemed to think that was a wholly unreasonable proposition to make, since SWTOR was Bioware + Star Wars and hence unbeatable.
Now that SWTOR's launch has come and gone, and we have a general idea of how many boxes they've sold (More than 2 million, less than 3 million), how reasonable do you think it is that GW2 will be able to beat that?
Is there any other MMORPG that came out last year or is coming out this year that will have even higher box sales? Tera? TSW? RIFT?
Alternatively, what sort of things do you think GW2 has to do by release to assure that it actually DOES sell a lot of copies? Especially taking into account what we know so far by the Beta Weekend Event.
