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.

I Hope Pokemon X and Y Out sell everything .!
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-
