2 Games. 1 Season.

Who will come out on top?

This Holiday Season we're going to see two Juggernauts duke it out for Supremacy in the Gaming Market.

Grand Theft Auto V (available on PS3 and Xbox 360 on September 17th 2013)

and

Pokemon X & Y (available only on 3DS October 12th 2013.)

While these games will be avalible to us before the big Holiday Rush, It's a no brainer that these games will probably be the Big Ones for The Holiday Season and with these two games about to come out, I say to you System Wars...

Which Game will be the the Top Seller by the End of 2013?

GTA V will be huge over the holidays, especially with the PS3 bundle and Black Friday.

Pokémon will sell more in the long run, with people who can't not buy both Pokémon X and Y, then they'll re-release the game again and call it Z and people will buy that. But GTA V looks better... completely different audience though. And Call of Duty will whatever is coming out will probably outsell everything.

gtav , moar install base

I don't think any Pokemon game has outsold GTAIV, so I'm going with GTAV on this one.

Pokemon Black and White sold over a million copies... in one day. GTA 4 sold 600k copies day one.

It sold more than 600k on day one. Three million more, to be precise.

GTA will sell more this year, and more in its life.

However, CoD will sell the most this year, but less than both GTA and Pokemon in its lifetime.

#20 Posted by finalstar2007 (25649 posts) -

Oh its a sales thread thought i'd be about whos going to play what.

anyways none of them will come on top in terms of sales as Call of Duty:Ghosts is already being set to be the biggest title of 2013

Pokemon Red/Blue and Pokemon Gold/Silver have both outsold GTA 4 :Pcharizard1605

Have they? The most recent numbers I could find had them shy of 24M while GTAIV is at 25M now.

I'm positive Pokemon R/B are like 33 million units, while G/S are 27 million. However, I might be wrong (in which case please correct me :3)

I think those are the numbers if you're including Yellow and Crystal.

Oh. No, I don't wanna include Crystal and Yellow, that's just cheating :P I think I'm just too used to remembering total sales for the entire generation lol. Okay, GTA4 has outsold all the Pokemon games till date. Come on X and Y, kick GTA's ass :twisted:
#30 Posted by EthicalBandit (86 posts) -

If X and Y were on the DS, this would probrably up for debate. But since it's on handheld that is still kinda newish, GTA will pretty overcome it in sales.

GTA V

Amazing untapped potential in a series that people keep hoping to see as the new installments come along.. but fail to reach what everyone is looking for....

A BAD ASS RATATTA that beats Mewtwo!

 

Edit : K... it happend already....

I have no idea how much pokemon usually sells (Shocking since im a huge pkm fan)
#34 Posted by ShepardCommandr (3210 posts) -

GTA V by a long shot.

#35 Posted by hoola (6422 posts) -

GTA will win over its lifetime.  I looked up stats and GTA4 is more popular than any COD game ever which probably makes it the biggest core game series.   Pokemon sales according to VG charts have been going down since Diamond/Pearl and are around 14 million.

Pokemon X for me. GTA is garbage

GTA V
#38 Posted by Maroxad (8616 posts) -

For this holiday season? GTA5.

However, the gap should probably close during lifetime.

#39 Posted by Netret0120 (2862 posts) -
That's a tough one. I think GTA5 will sell more but X and Y will be very successful too.

This is what I'm thinking.

#41 Posted by PcGamingRig (7121 posts) -

Street Cleaning Simulator beats both of them, hands down.

#42 Posted by BrunoBRS (73263 posts) -
it depends on whether or not you count FTA on both systems or on an individual system. still voted pokemon though.
#43 Posted by Pikminmaniac (9250 posts) -

This holiday season it will probably be GTA V given how many more people own a PS3 and/or an Xbox 360 than a 3DS. In the long run, it's a toss up. Both series tend to sell near 20 million copies in their life time

It's the second highest selling game series of all time :P It single handedly sells Nintendo handhelds, and the average (non remake) installment sells ~18 million units. It's like this: Generation One sales: 33 million Generation Two sales: 27 million Generation Three sales: 21 million FireRed/Leagreen sales: 12 million Generation Four sales: 25 million HeartGold/SoulSilver sales: 12 million Generation Five sales: 20 million

GTA 5 Kids love that GTA and loving parents love to treat them. Pokemon needs more Violence, Hookers and drugs for the youngsters of today.

Wow, that is truly shameful to watch. Wow. Did that kid really just kiss the game box? He'd probably react the same way if you game him Call of Duty Ghosts.

GTAV easily.
