GTAV already 1,000 million units sold in only 3 days!!

The next overhyped game i know of that is coming this year is Pokemon.
Sorry for my grammar, I'm typing on Ipad.

1,000 million? You mean 1 billion?

Because of Nintendo's new policy this year to print less copies of games to keep profits higher it will be harder to get a hold of than usual if you didn't pre-order.

Anyone who voted "yes" is an idiot. Like I'm not even trying to be mean, it's deluding yourself to think otherwise.

Is Pokémon popular? Yes. Is X and Y bound to be one of the largest launches for the series ever? Probably.

Can it make one billion dollars in its first few days, let alone $800 Billion in its first 24 hours? No.
Grand Theft Auto V is the biggest video game release in history and it will be a while before anything beats it
So... new here... what do I do?

I would laugh if it did, but I doubt it would.

How can they even compete? Everyone was looking forward to GTA 5, it is on two consoles while pokemon is on the 3ds, which not everyone has. Not a chance.

Pokemon'll be a system seller as well. I doubt many people bought a console to play gta v.

As much as I love Pokemon, there's no way in hell it could beat GTA V. It has a much wider demographic, available on more platforms, and beat the break-even point (millions of dollars) on pre-orders alone.

Pokemon's not touching that any time soon.

GTA is only popular in the west, Pokemon is popular everywhere.

Nope I don't think Pokemon could beat Grand Theft Auto in sells, but both games will sell a lot of copies though.
