If this is sarcasm, I hope so. If not, it won't happen. GTAV has made at least over $1 Billion.

Not really surprising. Japan never seems to have enough of the big games for everyone right away.

It's mostly sarcasm. It isn't impossible though. The first day sales won't be competitive but GTA V has large reason to be very front loaded due to the new consoles releasing and everyone who wants GTA 5 already has a 360 or PS3. The only thing that might prevent it from being front loaded is the eventual PC release. It hasn't sold as much as R/B/Y or even G/S/C yet.

X/Y seems to be getting a lot of old fans back and will have a lot more longevity due to the 3ds still being very early in it's life. No real competition in the handheld market and the eventual Z release.

I'm more impressed by how Monster Hunter 4 is almost completely sold out several weeks after it launched:

I know sales have exceeded expectations, but still, that's pretty crazy!

I'm buying my copy without a pre-order. Whether it's in or not, I leave that to the generous decision of lady luck.
