Hm, those predictions on the 1st page seem really high, considering the games are releasing in the fall, right?
Are people really believing they will sell upwards of 10 million by year's end, in a few short months? O_O

Lifetime, sure, but in 2013? Don't think so.



Ok take a look at all 3 regions first 10 weeks... http://www.vgchartz.com/game/4022/pokemon-diamond-pearl-version/USA/ get it now lol

This? If so, then no, I still don't see how people come up with predictions of 10-14 million by year's end. Do you? According to that link Diamond/Pearl sold a bit over 3.4 million WW in 10 weeks. Are we to believe X/Y will triple or quadruple that...?

Also NoA and Europe are not even in Winter Quarter! Now imagine if those games were which thy are gonna be! Get it now? Those 7.4mil sold of Diamond/Pearl are not holiday sales, just 1st 10 weeks!



Around the Network

7.42 million units sold in 2013.

That is Japan only. This site has the "Global First Ten Weeks" a bit weird. They just show the week it released first and then the following 9 weeks.

Ah, I see. Weird. Well, that changes things, then.

But, Diamond/Pearl released in 2006, and even at the end of 2007, had not cracked 13 million. There's no way X/Y will in less than 3 months.

Haha, no don't worry, I wasn't thinking you were. ;) I get it now. Still, even with all that, I find it doubtful X/Y will sell over 8 million in 2013. Then again, I might be completely wrong! We'll see, Pokemon and the 3DS are both craziness! :P
