How many copies has gta sold?


15 million. Expected 25 million by the end of the year.

Not for a while, no. The thing with Black and White is that they came out on the DS at the very end of its time. By that point a DS would be easy and cheap to get and worth it as it was already very well established and had a huge library. The DS itself was insanely popular and well sold.

The 3DS isn't doing nearly as well, and it hasn't been out for that long at all. I think X and Y will certainly sell a fair amount of consoles themselves, though.

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


Yeah but GTA 5 has a huge console advantage. 3ds has sold well but not to Ps3 xbox360 level.

Game on console with 31 million units sold worldwide

vs.

Game on console with 150+ million units sold worldwide ALONG with the 3ds units that can play it...

No reason to think X/Y would outsell it ANYTIME soon...

While you're right that the install base for the DS when BW came out was massive I wouldn't say the 3DS isn't doing well at all. Plus a pokemon game is going to be a massive system seller.

Maybe you should worry less about the tides, who've already made up their mind about killing you, and worry more about me, who's still mulling it over -Azula-
