Sterne Agee analyst Arvind Bhatia is predicting that BioShock Infinite, which is due to be released in three weeks on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, will ship 3M units in the last week of March.
These do not include actual sales. Bhatia is stating that based on preorders and retail orders there will be 3M units on the shelves.
“Our recent channel checks have increased our confidence in the potential for success of Take Two’s upcoming title BioShock Infinite. The title has been generating good buzz for some time. With less than three weeks before launch on March 26, we sense growing retailer optimism for this title,” he stated.
This basically means at most there will be 3M launch sales of the game.
