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 

 

Well this is god of war we're talking about. Before this gen it wouldn't be in the same stratosphere as Pokémon in terms of sales. 

 

Wasn't downplaying Pokémon just a funny coincidence both Sony and Nintendo launched an exclusive this year to practically the exact same numbers.

Yeah, but we also talking about around 4x bigger install base in any case.

Yeah, you didnt downplaying Pokemon, what you did is highlight GoW sales in Pokemon thread.

Imagine what it'll be if they make a real Pokemon game on the Switch.

And it feels like a free to play mobile game... wait, it is xP
People should have saved their money for the real pokemon next year, but for each their own.

Doesn’t really matter. Most people in the west earn more than €60 a year.

Considering how close most of it feels to a normal Pokemon game, are you saying that the entire franchise is like a free to play mobile game haha.

Amazing how thtt was Sony's biggest seller on PS4 before Spiderman came out and that's was this year while this is only the 2nd holiday of switch. But this will probably have more legs than God of War since it's pokemPo so who knows what the roof of this game is



Just a guy who doesn't want to be bored. Also

I'm going to assume this is sold-in (shipped+digital) for now. 6 days after release is a bit soon for them to know sell-through from global retailers. It took 13 days for GoW and Spiderman figures for first 3 days to be announced.

Either way it should do 10m+ lifetime no problem.
