Not in America. Pokemon X/Y will do great, and I'll be getting that and not GTAV, but it can't compete with the broad appeal that GTA has. Pokemon only appeals to certain groups of gamers, while GTA appeals to everyone. From the illiterate thugs who like the mindless violence to the intellectual gamers who want to see a unique storyline and interesting gameplay, people from any measure of the spectrum want GTAV.
No. Just no.
I've never met a single intelligent person in my life who has ever supported a game like GTA.
The "unique storyline and interesting gameplay" is not intelligent at all and it is a disgrace to call it as such. Also, to say that GTA caters to a large group of people is flawed as the majority of people who buy it are immature children or casual gamers.
As for if Pokemon X and Y could beat the GTAV sales? I believe that it can as other series already have.
Haha, never met a single intelligent person who has ever supported GTA? Well I imagine it'd be quite difficult to find someone 'intelligent' in that close-minded group of people you seem to mingle with.
And anything else I got from your 'coherent' and 'exquisite' piece of writing, was that 'MAH OPINION IS GR8T, UR AL IMATUR FOR LIKIN A GAME I DON'. Well spoke.
Also, did you ignore the fact that GTAV outsold any game in history within the time-span of 3 days? Or are you busy trying to figure out how exactly is Pokemon made for the 'intellectuals'?
Pokemon will beat GTAV in the long run easily. In the first few days?? probably not. But i'm sure GTA will end up on the markdown tables a lot faster than pokemon. Diamond and Pearl still sell for damn near full price. And here in Ohio, Soul Silver is STILL sold at full price. Don't see GTA4 still being sold like that
When all the hype dies down, GTAV will lose sales. However, pokemon sells all the time.
It's not the 2nd best selling video game franchise in history for no reason
R-truth Used Somersault Senton! Miz avoided the attack! R-truth kept going and crashed! R-truth fainted!
It probably won't outsell GTAV in the first week or so, But I think it will eventually, just because GTA games tend to stop doing well after it releases for a month or so. I've never seen someone buy GTA used.
Anyway, Pokemon is one of those games that never drops in price, and people are always wanting it, so anyone who wants pretty much has to pay the same amount they did on Day 1.
