Nintendo Australia has announced that Pokémon X and Pokémon Y sold over 100,000 in it’s first weekend on sale. For Australia that’s a pretty good amount of games sold.
It’s so big that Pokémon X and Y has broken the record for the most amount of games Nintendo has sold in the fastest time. The previous record holder was 80,000 copies of Pokémon Black and Pokémon White – but that was over the first week.
Pokémon X and Y sold more than this on the first day alone. Considering the small user base of the Nintendo 3DS compared to the Nintendo DS when Black and White were released, that’s impressive.
Since launch the game has been consistently sold out, that soon should change that as Nintendo Australia will be receiving more stock to fill those shelves. Have you had issues finding a copy of Pokémon X or Pokémon Y?
