Is Pokemon the most milked franchise in the history of gaming?

Eh, screw it. This topic is pretty much done for since TC isn't responding. Can I bomb the topic now? I found an extremely relevant picture to the topic.

Additionally, I don't see how people can say that having two different versions of a Pokemon game don't count as separate releases. They count because there is no way that Nintendo does not both know and expect that people will buy both.


They don't count as separate releases because they don't get released separately. Simple as that. rather or not a person buys both version is another thing but for the most part the first 2 games that come out for main Pokemon games are the same game with minor differences, the 3rd version is where it's a "different" game

Hey it's true though, the games are never released apart from each other, never advertised alone. They are pretty much the same game no matter how you look at it.

This board gets trolled so easily.

Pathetic, no one even tries to put thought into their topics anymore because it's just that easy these days.

Good to know that "making Nintendo more money than if they released only one version" is not something that should be considered, at all. It is impossible for Nintendo to make the same amount of money with only one version; they wouldn't have sold nearly as well with only one.
