these games were probably more profitable, given the ridiculou gta v budget


Allow me to repost:

Except if X/Y sold 4 million in its first two days, that's = $160,000,000

GTA5 selling 13 million on first day that's = $800,000,000
- the $250,000,000 production cost
= $550,000,000 profit.

Lol GTA5 made more PROFIT in their first two days than X/Y's REVENUE will be for the entire year.

Meh, still not a good way to judge a game. Pokemon didn't sell as well? I love Pokemon! GTA5 sold better? I really don't care for the series.

Not quite. They don't make $60 per game sold, the same as how GF doesn't make $40 per Pokemon game sold. The retailer takes a cut, there are production costs involved, everything needs to be shipped, etc.

Do note that GTA 5 was released on two different consoles as opposed to X and Y on one.

Game that that comes out on 2 platforms released in 06 vs 2 games that released on a barely-popular console that released in 2010. So fair.
ADD my Pokemon Y FC: 3668-8145-2937 looking for someone with Pokemon X to trade starters,spares,exclusives,etc.

And note that X/Y was released in two separate versions as opposed to one, causing some people to buy 2 copies of the same game.

No one is saying it's better just because it sold more. We're just talking sales figures.

And what's the point of this topic? So GTA fans can brag that their series sells more than Pokémon?

To be sincere, I couldn't care less if GTA outsells Pokémon 100 to 1. I still prefer Pokémon. Mainly because I never liked the concept of GTA to begin with.
