Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Pokemon Company: Let's Go sold 3 million in first 3 days

Very similar numbers to God of war. Yeah just checked it, GOW sold 3.1m to consumers after 3 days and this did 3m shipped after 3. So both in the same ball park.

And it only around 80 million PS4s for that to happen 

 



Key word here is sold in 3 days, not shipped.
This is also biggest opening for any Switch game to date, I think we could have around 10m shipped units of Pokemon at end of December.

you fucker, I didn't tell you to take the bait



 
I WON A BET AGAINST AZUREN! WOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

:3

Awesome numbers, congrats game freak. Though if 2019 game doesnt do better than this I suspect the series will take a turn for the worse.



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

I don't see why next year's Pokémon game wouldn't do better than Let's Go. It's what hardcore fans really want. Besides, the install base will be higher than it is right now by the time it's out.



This is pretty great tbh.
Really good sales but not too much so they don't drop the mainline series or try to make it more casual.
Althought this will be huge this holiday season. Gen 8, if it's elaborate enough, could beat S/M record easily imo even if it only comes out next year (?)

He knew it was already bait amirite... OOOF 

OT: Amazing sales! Pokemon's not even in the same realm as these other franchises. Pokemon just curb stomps them all, Seth Rollins style.

Holy shit! There goes the discussion from the other thread!



Pocky Lover Boy! 

The best part of this for Nintendois that a lot of people who consider themselves to be “gamers” did not buy at launch while many children would have not have been able to afford it. Now that word-of-mouth and reviews seem to be good the game(s) should have a long tail.
