The gen isn't over yet but it looks like neither COD BO3 or Pokémon will end up as the best selling SKU of 8th gen. Instead GTA V just keeps on selling and selling (I wonder what physical and digital combined is at). An SKU on PS ending 1st in a gen hasn't happened since GTA San Andreas on PS2.

Top 3 SKU's in 6th gen (physical only):
1. Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas (PS2)
2. Grand Theft Auto: Vice City (PS2)
3. Pokémon Ruby/Sapphire (GBA)

Top 3 SKU's in 7th gen (physical only):
1. Wii Sports (Wii)
2. Mario Kart Wii (Wii)
3. Wii Sports Resort (Wii)

Top 3 SKU's in 8th gen (physical only):
1. Grand Theft Auto V (PS4)
2. Pokémon X/Y (3DS)
3. Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 (PS4)

Though if we include digital, BO3 and quite a few other SKUs on PS4 likely beat Pokémon X/Y.

@Mike_L

Well 22 million estimate is by end of March 2016, right now is obvius higher, so are PS4 versio sales :)

With GTA VI i'm not sure what think. I believe R* will release GTA VI just before the end of gen 8, and by starting gen 9, to be a launch title for PS5 / XB2 and for have the most higher installed base of PS4 / XBO, similar to what's happen with GTA V but this time withouth a year of difference for the next gen version, more like 2/3 months.

So i'm not sure how well PS4 version sales will be, should be very high cause at launch will be the platform with the biggest installed base, but PS5 version should hurt it's sales, and well of course the others platforms.
As for the total, GTA V should be something like 70 million, and with insane legs i can see it selling 100 million lifetime, i don't see GTA VI sells so much crazy, but will still be insane, maybe 50-70 million LT... then that's just what i think, who know.

Oh, I didn't know PS4 version of BO3 might only be at 11 mill. Then you're probably right

Yeah, I forgot about GTA VI. If that ends up as the best selling SKU of the generation, that'd be the first time since GTA: SA on PS2 (20.81 mill) that a PS game ends up as the biggest selling game of a generation. Right?

@Mike_L

I don't use VGChartz numbers at all, WedBush estimated 22 million copies of Black Ops III sold by end of Mrach 2016 (this include retail and digital, not shipments though). I believe about half of that is on PS4, while the rest on XBO, PC, 360, PS3. (that's my estimate though, nothing official).
Legs of Black Ops III are really strong, most impressive legs for a CoD game i would say, but this is expecially thanks the PS4 bundle. We are in August, i can't see this bundle selling much more, by November Sony should have others bundle to sells, including Infinite Warfare.
My guess is that Black Ops III will end lifetime (let's say by 2020) with nearly 30 million, and half of that on PS4 (so about / almost 15 million). Maybe even over that, but actually Pokémon X/Y already has shipped (retail+digital) 15 million (14.98m to be fair), and this is by end of June 2016, so even before the Pokémon GO boost (which we all saw how strong it was). I think that at this point even 16 million is becomed a waaaaaaaay conservate prediction, i see 17 million more likely. While that's shipped, Nintendo games have legs so i don't see a big difference between sold and shipped, overall i still see X/Y outsell Black Ops III on PS4 easy.

That said, i don't even think Black Ops III and X/Y will be the best selling game on PS4/3DS, cause i think thare are no doubt GTA VI will outsell BO III by an abyssal margin, and even Sun/Moon will most likely beat X/Y.

Also Mike_L, i personally really liked BO III, my favourite CoD to be honest. X/Y was awesome but not at old Pokémon levels, ORAS was way better imo.

@Ryng_Tolu
You're right. Those official numbers from Nintendo include digital though.
BO3 (PS4) will without a doubt be ahead if we include digital sales.

Pokémon Silver is one of my all time favorite games but I didn't think Pokémon X was that great. I didn't enjoy BO3 that much either so whether BO3 or X/Y will end up ahead doesn't matter to me personally.

If however BO3 ends up ahead, I think it's the first time since GTA: SA on PS2 (20.81 mill) that a PS game ends up as the biggest selling game of a generation.

Ryng_Tolu I respect your opinion. Personally I think bo3 will sell for years. Until the next black ops at least. the NX will damage pokemon 3DS legs. Bo3 digital ratio will be much higher too. I really can't see it losing.

Pokémon X/Y sold 14.7 million according to Nintendo. It sold 760K in it's 3rd year, and the last quarter was well up YOY (150k in 2015 VS 240k in 2016), it should sell at least 15.5 million, most likely even 16 million+.

Black Ops III has sold 22 million as for March 2016, i think almost half of this is from PS4 but there isn't an official platform split...

They should be close, but i think Pokémon X/Y will win.

Yeah, its pretty crazy. You give away BO3 with the console and a lot of people have it. Its almost like bundle games have a tendency to do exceptionally well.

If anything, kudos to Sony for putting up the money to bundle popular games at $299 - $350.

@Mr Puggsly- but keep in mind that the digital sales wasn't popular back when MW3 was released. Activision said that within the first 3 days of release the game made 550 mil, which is more than the 400 mil made by MW3.

@Dr.Vita - Well this is the first time I can recall seeing a CoD have mass bundling at/near launch. Also, the series simply isn't doing the same numbers as MW3.

Regardless, still has the best sales in the industry though.
