Way back before either game came out in early September? And how 30% of this board's users said Pokemon X would destroy GTA5 in sales?

Lol.


EVEN IN COPIES SOLD:
PokemonX/Y= 4 million copies in first 2 days worldwide
GTA5= 13 million copies in FIRST day worldwide.

Can we all look back at that and laugh now?

I think those 30% weren't the brightest of the bunch.

I don't care who outsell. I care which one I would be interested in more and which one I have more fun in.
I liked GTA 1 all the way to GTASA(didn't like SA too much but liked 50% of it).
I hated GTAIV and got out of GTA after that so I had no interest in GTA5.

Big whoop whoever sold the most.

Even if they sold the same amount of copies, they'd have to sell more to outsell, as they are $20.00 behind in each copy.

Absolutely loved GTA:SA but stopped playing after GTA: Vice City Stories. Not sure if I'll ever get back in.

Except the production cost for GTA5 was roughly a bajillion times higher than Pokemon. Given, they made the money back, but to go "They make less because it's cheaper!" is horrifically inaccurate.
Quoting the Topic Creator's original post is stupid and redundant.
I'm here for intelligent arguments or flaming. It's your job to decipher which.

As someone who loves his Pokemon X/Y and GTA5, I must say that you have to give GTA5 a try.

I'm not a fan of the series at all, but this game is a masterpiece.

it's WAY more likely that you'll see more used copies of GTAV at gamestop than any other pokemon game (which even gain value after they go out of print) . just wait a year or two and they'll be stocking stuffers and will be sold for less than then bucks. (but then i guess now they'll brag about their number of used copies sold o.0)
