Pokemon GO

Pokémon GO has been out on the market for several weeks now, and it seems like the hype surrounding the game is finally starting to cool off somewhat. Of course, that's not to say that it will be fading away anytime soon; in fact, it seems like things will only continue to get better from here. The game's meteoric rise to the top of global charts is nothing to dismiss out of hand, as the most recent numbers have shown.

According to Sensor Tower, Pokémon GO has now surpassed 75 million downloads worldwide, smashing the record for the fastest app to pass 50 million installs for the combined iOS and Android ecosystems by taking just 19 days to hit the mark. To put it in perspective, the next game to hit that milestone was Color Switch, which took 77 days.


Considering that the game still has yet to launch in several markets, it'll be interesting to see how long it'll be before it starts falling within "normal" parameters. Suffice to say, Niantic has put together a pretty compelling piece of software.

What do you think? Is Pokémon GO worthy of the success it's achieved thus far? How many downloads do you think this'll have one year from now? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
