Don't overestimate their "machine".

Your efforts won't have any influence whatsoever on whether they sell 3m or 500k - that rests on what Bethsoft do and how they market it.
You base this feeling on…what…gut feeling? The huge fanbase they must have gained by being so honest about Oblivion? The grand pr that Legacy brought them? Past cases in franchise histories?

I don't like defeatism, not even when it's realistic. Right here, it's not even that realistic. Hype is a very dangerous game of poker, it's not that hard to put all your chips on one hand.

Is there more to it than that?
No, which means it might seem overstated in the article. Which would be a bad thing.

What's in it for me? You only would complain about everything I have to offer you.
Please hold of making uninformed comments until after reading the article. Rehashing arguments = tiring.
