Colton147 Talking Out Of His Arse (As Per Usual)

It’s one of those remarkable mysteries how anyone could be so stupid as to believe even half the crap that Colton147 comes out with so regularly:

Sims 4 has outsold Sims 2 and Sims 3? Oh sure…

Even more laughable, he tried proffering bullshit from the fat Greek thief as ‘proof’:

Let’s put this into perspective by looking at the UK, the world’s third largest video gaming market:

Every newspaper at the start of 2015 agreed that the biggest selling game was Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare. Once consoles are taken into the selling figures for games nowadays, matters look very different indeed for Sims 4.

So where in the UK charts did Sims 4 finish in its first year of release?

Not even in the Top 30!

In fact, Sims 4 – despite all the hype, all the adverts, all the buying off of potential critical voices – was merely the forty seventh biggest selling game in the UK in 2014.

Even more humiliating, it was thrashed by the much criticised Thief reboot (although one of us liked it) at No.32, and even Nintendo’s attempt at a Sims style game – Tomodachi Life – outsold it. And Tomodachi Life, unlike Sims 4, was limited to merely one narrow handheld console platform.

If that’s the gaming picture in the UK, are any of you seriously going to believe Sims 4 made up the lost ground elsewhere to somehow be the world’s biggest selling of 2014?

The fact is that Sims 4 didn’t even come close in its first year to matching the sales of either Sims 2 or Sims 3.

Deal with it.
