Default Pokemon FireRed Reaches Top 10 Selling Video Games in 2004!

Pokemon FireRed Reaches Top 10 Selling Video Games in 2004!
-01/20/05-


Another year, another top 10 for Pokemon.

Pokemon FireRed took sixth place for the best selling video game in the US for 2004. Considering the game was a remake just adds to the achievement. Although Pokemon LeafGreen barely missed the top 10 which finished at 11th (just a difference of about a thousand to get to 10th), the two games combined sales would have made the combo the fourth best selling games.

The full list - Best Selling Video Games in the US for 2004
1. Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas (PS2) - 5.1 million units sold
2. Halo 2 (XBOX) - 4.2 million units sold
3. Madden NFL 2005 (PS2) - 3.2 million units sold
4. ESPN NFL 2K5 (PS2) - 1.5 million units sold
5. Need for Speed: Underground 2 (PS2) 1.4 million units sold
6. Pokemon FireRed (GBA) - 1.2 million units sold
7. NBA Live 2005 (PS2) - 1.2 million units sold
8. Spider-Man: The Movie 2(PS2) - 1.1 million units sold
9. Halo (XBOX) - 1.1 million units sold
10. ESPN NFL 2K5 (XBOX) - 1 million units sold

Pokemon FireRed/LeafGreen (Combined) - 2.3 million units sold
Pokemon FireRed: 1.27 million
Pokemon LeafGreen: 1.09 million
ESPN NFL 2K5 (XBOX): 1.098 million, Pokemon LeafGreen: 1.097 million (about a one thousand difference)

Also, Pokemon Colosseum claimed the title of the best selling GameCube game in 2004. Without a doubt, Pokemon Colosseum helped the sales of the GameCube.
