With people asking whether it will outsell GTA 5, I decided to ask about a much more reachable goal.

I actually say about the same because more people had a DS at the time than have a 3DS now. However, X and Y has better marketing.

I don't know the exact number, but however many copies it takes to make over $1 billion in 3 days, and probably a crud ton more since then.

Anyway, gta copies cost more, so Pokemon could very easily overtake gta in number of copies sold, but not money.

Sure, but if we're counting money then we have to consider development costs too. I don't know what they ARE, just that they'd be relevant.

But GTA is also a multiplatform game.
