Nintendo have just announced that both the Pokemon Diamond and Pearl Versions have sold over 1 million copies combined in just 5 days of going on sale in the United States. The rate of sale is higher then any other Pokemon game before it in the US.
And is going to sell even more.
Aussie have to wait till June to get the game, Europe who knows yet but looking at sales of Ranger its gonna be massive there.
what in the blue fuk. honestly pokemon is old and shyte.
I don't get it either....Pokemon is horrible.This guys will buy anything PM.Even if it's the same game for the last 10 years.
I use to like pokemon but the games are o so repetative!,it's the same thing over and over and over!,but to complete the collection I just bought Pokemon Diamond for my DS two days ago,and guess what,NOTHING HAS CHANGED!,everything is the same,well besides new pokemon is all!
Lol... referring to the Wii as a gimmick and that it won't last... someone on here yesterday just said:
"When I was in elementary I thought Pokemon cards were awesome and so did everyone else. Guess what? Pokemon is as dead as disco."
Now maybe he meant to say "Pokemon CARDS are as dead as disco"... but these numbers CLEARLY show that neither Nintendo nor Pokemon are dead.
I honestly don't see the appeal (especially after like 200 Pokemon versions)... but what do I know? All I know is that the doofus who said Pokemon is dead must like the taste of his own words.
1 million in 5 days? Did anyone expect differently? The Pokemon games are huge.
Looks like another month of DS domination...
Whats great about the DS--no region coding.
So if a Aussie wants this game he can just go and import it and play it right away.
I do this with Japanese titles like Jump Star Heroes.
the pokemon games are fun but i dont know if i would buy these news ones, especially when you can play the older ones on your PSP hehe :P
the kids are crazy for pokemon
it is pokemon after all
Although it's extremely repetitive to us, to children it's more and more fun. That's why these games sell: They're tailored to the right market.
