Media Create just posted its top 50 sales charts for last week, and they also included an interesting snippet of information, confirming previous reports about Pokémon X and Y flying off the Japanese virtual shelves.
This is gonna break records and put 3DS on top of the charts for awhile. Even tho 3DS is already on top.
Multiply that number by two, yup.
It's world wide release too. and this is just Japan
These games are gonna be sick!
The Y version legendary Pokemon looks so cool haha..I really need to get a 3DS soon! :/...I'm missing out..
Funny enough, it seems that X is selling more in Japan. Wouldn't know why.
Hmm... I don't know either. I like the X one too, but the Y one is so raw and badass lol. Xerneas (is that what it's called?) looks cool, but it reminds me too much of Dialga and those four..justice force (I don't know..) Pokemon from that one Pokemon movie I saw when I was bored.
I think it the fact that the new legendary is a dragon type killer aka fairy. instead of the tired old flying type legends
X is selling more because people want to have Xerneas, the first Fairy legendary. Add that to the dissapointment that Yvetal is just Dark/Flying and not Dragon.
Version exclusives are going to be what influences my choice :) Otherwise I prefer X because the legendary is a fairy type.
First Version always sells better. Diamond Gold Ruby Red Black pretty much
Wow, those are some pretty great numbers for such a short time span. I don't know how this will do in relation to other Pokemon games in terms of sales. The 3DS has a smaller install base, so I don't know how much that will effect things. My guess is over 5 million. I don't think that it'll reach Pokemon Black's 14 million, but I think it can realistically beat what Black 2 did, which was 6 million.
I, personally, can see it overtaking Black & White's sales of 14 million. My reason for this is that whilst it is an entirely new generation (as Black and White were) it this is the most innovative The Pokémon Company have ever been in regards to advancing their series; we have never seen this much advancement in one generation before - I mean, Generation III to IV was a large(ish) jump, but this is just ridiculously good. Personally, I see this keeping the 3DS at the top of its market for a good while. The figures so far are showing how popular the game is - fortunately, The Pokémon Company are doing everything right so far: . A worldwide release; . Constant, steady flow of new information to keep people buzzed; . Enhanced graphics and motion (8-way movement); . Moving away from sprites to full 3D renders; . An introduction of a new type which hasn't been done since Generation II; . Brave and daring new features (Mega Evolution); . Exciting new orchestral music due to the advancement of the 3DS' hardware; . Release Day Wi-Fi Event (Special Torchic); There hasn't been this much buzz and this much excitement for a Pokémon game for a very VERY long time, and I think that The Pokémon Company knew this, even the first announcement was incredible. Such a long trailer to keep us going whilst they get the game done - It wasn't a simple vocal announcement that would clearly make some people go, "yeah, whatever..."; it really hooked everyone due to amount of content we received. I applaud them, I really do, and I hope that these games sell like cocaine.
Nintendo needs to put Pokemon on Wii U.
Haha there is Pokemon Rumble U! Yeah I don't think it's funny now that I thought about it...
Everytime i hear "nintendo is dead" i look at how santa loves them so much! Lots of kids are going to get a 3ds with pokemon for christmas.
I am so sorry, worldwidegaming! I meant to 'Agree' and clicked 'Disagree' by accident and I can't change it! :P I completely agree with you. Those that say "Nintendo is dead" are ignorant. Nintendo has very little competition (especially with Sony and Microsoft). Their games are completely different and tackle a very different market - Nintendo aren't often worried about graphical ingenuity and new, modern updates to the industry, their IPs are strong as they are because they are fun. That is it. People respect and buy Nintendo products because they are fun to play regardless of anything else. Sony and Microsoft have and will (it seems) always be up in arms with each other, Nintendo is just cruising along enjoying life. This GIF has it off perfectly to a 'TEE'! http://weknowgifs.com/wp-co...
It happens. I honestly believe these people have little to complain or say when most of them have not even touched a nintendo product in awhile. Most of the arguments lack any sense. Nintendo is doing what nintendo does. sega failed and the new challengers are attempting to take a title that does not exist. No need to change whats broken! Which is why they still sell. This winter will see saies rise and once again people complain That nintendo is not selling more than x y and z. Who gives a damn about the race and figures? If they did they would have purchased every game on their godly system. Countless studios died this generation! Great games no one bought Because they got a 7 rather than a 9. All i see is gaming was great before they made the internet easy to use. Now even a dummy can post their hate forgetting that we are here to play a fun and exciting game.
Santa is another way of saying Sa...
holy crap that is incredible, well done pokemon x and y, well done. Im gonna have GTA V and Pokemon X and Y in a month apart?!? This is going to be epic :O :O
Oo_oO alot of people like pokemon. I dabbped in it with my friends when I was 7-10. I like the movies more /:
pokemon 2000 still my favorite movie to date.
I really want to get this game, but I don't have a 3DS, I'm gonna have to buy one just for this game.
yes yes you are.. but hey who knows maybe you'll like some else from the wonderful line up they have. WHat i find about nintendo games u just gotta risk it sometimes and try the game, you'll be surprised how much fun a game you originally thought would looked uninteresting can be.
I applaud you for buying a 3DS just for this game, but there are definitely some other incredible games for this console. Don't worry about spending all that money just for Pokémon when you have an absolutely stunning library of games to choose from on this console! :)
