Nintendo's habit of releasing two versions of what's basically the same Pokemon game has kept it from snapping up the top spot in the UK Videogames charts.Pokemon Y and Pokemon X sat at numbers 3 and 4 respectively
in the charts this week, while Grand Theft Auto V
was number 1, having muscled FIFA 14
to Number 2.
According to MCV
, however, the pair's combined sales would have put them at number 1 had Chart-Track counted them as one title. You can make a strong case for doing that - they're basically the same game, and certainly have more in common than, say, a PS3 and a 3DS version of a film tie-in.
Still, money in the bank is money in the bank. The game is Nintendo's best-selling 3DS title this year. We're sure the company's not too worried.
