      • Considering there is a total of around 170m DSs and 3DSs out there and around the same amond Wii Us, PS3s and 360s so is that not a legit defence. Ofcourse we have to take PC gamers into account, but many of those own a home console aswell and there are some gamers owning several home consoles which makes up for the PC gamer part of it. The install base is around the same for both games.

        • Of course it’s a legitimate defense. There is a much broader audience with the Wii U, PS3, 360, and PC. Those are home consoles, anyway. The 3/DS is a handheld device. It’s an apples-to-oranges comparison.

          Besides, these games were a sequel to bridge the time gap between Black/White and X/Y. It’s not like it’s selling poorly for being, arguably, a niche title. First person shooters appeal to the masses, whether they be kids (see: Xbox 360), or adults.

          It isn’t like it’s a main Pokemon entry with a totally different story, region, Pokemon, and characters. Pokemon X & Y will be ONE of the many games that people are waiting on to buy a 3DS. There are tons of them coming out this year.

    • 7.5M copies of a DS game on a 8 year old system is bad ? WTF :? it’s incredible.

      It was never supposed to sell as much as other DS pokemon games as it is a Rehashed Sequel. Not exactly an essential purchase. It’s a great game , but pasable for many as they’re all waiting for 3DS pokemon. WHich has just been announced in the form of X and Y.

      X and Y will smash 15-20 million on 3DS lifetime. There’s so many people who have been waiting for a 3D pokemon game , and it’s coming!

      And Black and white 2 is still selling a bit today , it will probably hit 10M lifetime.

    • I can’t believe that you can’t believe your saying this as if to play down pokemon. It’s one of the best RPG’s going. All of them , every single one is excellent. Doesn’t matter to me if they were ”re-hashed”. I’ve bought every pokemon game ever. one from each generation and remake.

          I was stuck in the same mindset ”these new pokemon look stupid” after playing the new games they just feel like regular awesome pokemon.

    • Long story short

      I loved pokemon when I was kid. The Pokemon I’ve only played was the N64 Colosseumand loved it. Now I’m not into the whole sprite based style, but now seeing that there are 3D battes, and much much more paked into X&Y, I’m excited.

  1. The sales are very good if you consider the piratery with the r4 cards and much have played those games with emulator too so if all this didn’t exist the sales where much higher . I have a feeling that x and y will smash some records too

  2. Sometimes I get sick of hearing about all the millions/billions of dollars people make, when I’m sitting here, barely surviving from month to month.

  3. This proves the DS is a profitable system. That is a lot of games for a short period of time, also, Pokemon is a great and popular franchise.

  4. That’s a lot like people said it’s an “system than came out 8 years ago”. That’s a lot especially for it being out for only 3 months.
